Calls for increased gun control are being renewed in the wake of the Newtown, Conn. school shooting last Friday, and President Barack Obama indicated he would pursue measures to stop such events from happening in the future. Obama said at a memorial service Sunday that he would "use whatever power this office holds" to prevent such massacres.
In yet another high-profile public shooting, 20 children and six adults were killed in Sandy Hook Elementary School when a gunman forced his way in and began firing. Obama spoke strongly about the failure of the country to protect its children, and suggested his administration would explore new efforts to better regulate guns.

"No single law, no set of laws can eliminate evil from the world or prevent every senseless act of violence in our society," he said. "But that can't be an excuse for inaction

who is going to stop him?
When you figure that out get back to me okay?
What part of that isn't understood?
How is it that we have a constitution yet he can still try this?
How is it that we have a constitution and he is still POTUS, despite not being able to provide an original copy of a LFBC, having (allegedly) fraudulently obtained a SSN that was originally issued to someone in CT born in 1890, and (allegedly) forged his Selective Service Registration application. Hmmmm????
You think Obama gives a rats behind about the Constitution..this guy wipes his butt with the Constitution, he deplores it, just like the rest of the far left
If Obama wanted to use Dictatorial powers to stop these senseless acts, he should focus on violent video games and the use of pyscotic drugs for young children.
That’s in the “living Constitution”, right?
If he does, then we know why he issued all those martial law-related executive orders.
When was the last time some scum sucking dirt bag politician paid any attention to the constitution? This looks like a classic example of ignorant morons, giving up freedom, for some perceived security. As always, they get neither.
Blaming video games is the same as blaming guns. It’s silly and totally without any actual documented evidence.
But it makes a Liberal feel good to say that we should ban something he or she knows nothing about as long it has no perceived effect on themselves.
Should Obama Pursue Gun Control Without Congress?
Looks like he has his mandate/s
How will Bronco enforce his demand?
link check ?
obviously, the fool that wrote this is too dumb to be talking about politics along with the publisher. must be left-wing morons.
There is a difference between executive “privilege” and executive “orders”.
obviously the fool knows not the difference.
Constitutionally speaking, I can find no justification of either.
But to not know the difference, shows that we have idiots proclaiming something they know nothing about.
Bring it on!
This is merely jaw flapping to sell papers
