p.s. How disappointing that many retired military leaders and heroes who trained with guns their whole career now suddenly support Obama in his quest to ban them for the rest of us.

The best shot is to have it overturned in courts as unconstitutional.

An executive order does not supersede the constitution.

The president only has the authority granted to him by the constitution and the bill of rights specifically forbids him from infringing on our right to keep and bear arms.

There is a 120 day review after it has been submitted.

Executive Orders are unconstitutional. Always have been. Only the legislative branch of government has the authority, under the Constitution, to establish laws.

We’ve let this go un-checked since FDR’s days. Needs to stop—NOW!

Executive Orders only apply to the running of the Executive branch of government. They may not be used to circumvent constitutional protections or the authority of the Legislative branch...but somebody may have to get their heads slapped around first, just to get their attention on this.

EO’s that are unConstitutional will be beaten back in Court and the ILA of the NRA is ready to let the suits fly. SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED is not negotiable... even to a black kenyan marxist.

I’ve personally pared back my weekly range outings to conserve what ammo I do have. I suggest everyone finalize preparations in the next few weeks. It may be too late very soon.

I’ll bet the NRA has a lawsuit ready to file within 24 hrs of O trying such a thing, and they won’t be alone in challenging this all the way to SCOTUS. They would welcome the opportunity to get a definitve ruling. Obama will not welcome such a ruling; he will surely lose. Biden’s suggestion is a trial balloon.

I thought from the beginning he would do it by executive order. Back some months ago, remember he said when the congress doesn't act on what he wants, he will do it by executive order. If you remember, he made millions of illegal aliens, legal, by executive order several months ago.

He sees himself as Idi Amin did when he anointed himself - “His Excellency President for Life, Field Marshal Al Hadji Doctor Idi Amin, VC, DSO, MC, Lord of All the Beasts of the Earth and Fishes of the Sea, and Conqueror of the British Empire in Africa in General and Uganda in Particular.”

Just stick Hussein in the above title and insert “Conqueror of the USA” where Amin says “British Empire in Africa in General and Uganda in Particular.”

If people would set their minds that these people are frauds; we might get something done. Instead, they are giving in it sounds like.

Executive orders only apply to the administration of the executive branch of government.

They aren't laws. They are bureaucratic rules for bureaucrats.

They were never intended to apply to the citizenry.

But now that the average citizen has the IQ of a walnut, anything goes.

The next President can nullify the order with a stroke of the pen.

An EO that violates the Constitution would definitely be struck down by SCOTUS - probably by a 9-0 decision.

Otherwise, SCOTUS is meaningless, loses all legitimacy, and lacks any authority since the Executive Department could rule by absolute fiat.

If Obama were to banish guns by EO - he would certainly lose at SCOTUS.
