Today Vice President Joe Biden met with gun victims and safety groups as part of a continuing effort by his task force to come up with solutions to gun violence in the aftermath of the Newtown, Connecticut shootings. The highlight of the meeting came when Biden announced that the White House is prepared to act through executive action to implement gun control measures. Biden stated...

The ATF is about to get stupid on gun store owners.
Oh? Who exactly is going to limit him?
”The president is going to act. Executive order, executive action that can be taken, we haven’t decided what that is yet.”
We have to sign it so we can know what’s in it.
EPA has been toying with banning lead bullets for a long time.
Product liability laws were used by the left as a method of scaring firearm manufacturers.
Many on the left have wanted the CDC to take up firearms and gun violence as a medical issue to be regulated as such.
You could see federal regulations declaring all kinds of federal facilities or things purchased with federal money to be declared gun free zones, like parks, interstate highways, and a host of things. Post Offices, federal buildings are still gun free zones, even if National Parks now allow concealed carry permit holders to concealed carry (outside of federal park buildings).
In short there is probably going to be a long of things that the big Zero is going to be implementing that will make those who believe in the 2nd Amendment mad.
Still the Constitution has a set of Checks and Balances and it has a Bill of Rights. I lived through the first Assault Weapons Ban and 8 years of Bill Clinton, I can live through the Big Zero who is going to make Jimmy Carter look like a successful president.
WHAT! Joe “spread ‘em, you’re gonna be frisked” biteme mis-spoke? No way!!!!
Stop radical left wing extremists.
The ATF is about to get stupid
on gun store owners.
There, fixed that for you.
If Obomba and the ATF want to dance they better understand that the American people can dance better than anyone else.
I remember when Clinton signed an order on his way out to require every water treatment center to raise their arsenic standards. It would have cost local governments billions.
Our good friends, Smith & Wesson.
Seriously though, I think that doofus dumb-ass Joe Bite-Me Biden just "shot" himself in the proverbial foot with his outburst. He just opened his mouth and absolutely confirmed the greatest fears of conservatives & gun owners (likely including some liberal gun owners as well) that 0dumb0 & the socialist demoRATs have every intention of ruling by dictatorial & tyrannical fiat. This will probably galvanize conservative/Christian/patriotic Americans if they ever try to implement such a gun grab like this. This may be the tipping point that is needed to make a strong stand for our freedoms & rights & liberties against 0dumb0Sh_t and the RATs.
executive orders only apply to the executive branch employees.
How is Obama limited? The Constitution does no apply to him and he controls the Justice Department?
First get every gun away from street hoods. Then maybe we’ll talk. It’s easier to get guns from law abiding citizens because they obey the laws re: guns. Street hoods do not.
Uh, no. Our rights to defend ourselves are not negotiable. The Second Amendment is not about defending ourselves from common criminals or nutters who go on mass shooting sprees.
Limits have never stopped Obama before.
It was a tongue in cheek thing. I know that no street hood would turn in their gun. It’s easier for politicians to go after registered guns or guns from law abiding citizens. It’s also the reason our family doesn’t belong to the NRA or any gun organisation because the feds can use the subscription lists to find out who owns guns. Unfortunately all ours were lost in a tragic mishap when our boat was swamped.
Makes one wonder where the people who make up the ATF come from; KGB residuals perhaps. They were the prime movers behind Ruby Ridge and the Branch Dividian Massacre - says all you need to know about these people. They’ll quite willingly do whatever Obama and Holder wants them to.
