I just don’t see Obama trying to pass any type of weapon or magazine ban through executive order. First of all, I doubt seriously that it would be legal. Secondly, going around Congress smacks of totalitarianism. Thirdly, he’ll likely upset pro-gun Democrats as well. The only way for him to effectively implement new gun control laws is through Congress, and I just gave my doubts that it happens this year.

I don’t know. Of course it wouldn’t be legal, myself and millions of other Americans would ignore it. But i could see obama trying it, then laying on a tremendous media campaign daring opponents (ie people that respect and defend the constitution) to nullify it and “rearm the killers” or some other demonizasion...

“going around Congress smacks of totalitarianism”

A fact which does not concern totalitarians.

I sincerely hope you're right, EagleInGA, but all three of those points look like good reasons for an America-hating totalitarian to proceed, not hesitate.

Yep. He may settle for some token measures on gun registration but won't go all out.

In exchange for going easy on this issue, he'll get the GOP to cave on amnesty.

“I just don’t see Obama trying to pass any type of weapon or magazine ban through executive order.”

Really??? In your own words, you illustrate your ignorance of the process...There would be NOTHING TO PASS, it is an executive decision, period...

“First of all, I doubt seriously that it would be legal.”

Hmmmmmmm, nevermind it would be first determined to be un-Constitutional, if we can get the SCOTUS to intervene, which is like watching cars rust in Texarkana...It’ll take a while, and in the meantime, those who choose to sucumb to the infringement(s), will feel pretty stoopid at the end of the day when that is determined...

“Secondly, going around Congress smacks of totalitarianism.”

At the very least...

“Thirdly, he’ll likely upset pro-gun Democrats as well.”

Why should he, or even those pro-gun democrats give a rats ass about being upset, if they can get another dig on the conservative movement???

“The only way for him to effectively implement new gun control laws is through Congress, and I just gave my doubts that it happens this year.”

Well there’s a thought...Sure they’ll try, and hopefully fail in that course, I do not have any confidence in Congress to stop anything of this magnitude because of their well established cowardice...

And why do you believe it won’t be attempted this year??? Why do you think they’ll have to wait for some magical moment to pull their trigger on us??? Pardon the pun...

It’s coming, they’ve been working on this for years...For just the right time and crisis...

And where you believe you are correct on this issue, I actually hope I am wrong in my analysis...Because at the end of the day no one is going to win this thing if they implement their plan for this country...

Good luck...
