Obama: Some Gun Control Measures 'I Can Accomplish Through Executive Action'
The Weekly Standard ^ | 1/14/13 | Daniel Halper

Posted on 01/14/2013 9:45:07 AM PST by Nachum

"My understanding is the vice president's going to provide a range of steps that we can take to reduce gun violence," said Obama. "Some of them will require legislation, some of them I can accomplish through executive action. And so I will be reviewing those today, and as I said, I will speak in more detail to what we're going to go ahead and propose later in the week.

I’m hoping Mark Levin has his Landmark Legal Org fired-up to file suit against this illegal EO crap, right away.

My guess is ...

No more mil surplus ammo or or gun parts.
No more imports of ammo or gun parts.

He will do it.

At least half the states will iugnore his EO. Maybe more. It will be as enforcable as the one he issued re: GITMO.

He knows he has TOTAL control. It’s hard to believe Obama’s opposition party has had control of the House for two years now. With the exception of ObamaCare it appears that Obama has managed to push through more of his liberal agenda with a Republican controlled House than he did with Pelosi holding the gavel.

The logical question is to ask about the link/thinking between his executive action and ‘to reduce gun violence’.

The Left enjoy telling us that they are the pro-science half, where is the proof?

No more imports of ammo or gun parts.

Except for LE or military use, of course. Note that ALL Springfield Armory handgun frames are made in Croatia or Brazil. I'm sure that some other companies are in the same boat. He's going to run a lot of people onto the unemployment line.

This seems easiest and gets Barry off the hook for ‘doing something’. Even though this is going to be ineffective it was never really about that in the first place.

More AR-15s in private hands in thirty years than 30-30 Winchesters in 110 years.

And to think, back 40 years ago no one wanted an AR-15s (except me). They wanted hard shooting deer rifles.

Then Jimmy Carter got elected and Americans knew they were on their own when it came to defense.

No a$$wipe you can't accomplish anything with an EO. You might get what you want with compliance with your EO but you ain't going to get much of that.

I predict we will soon be hearing lots of this:

‘Stand down, that is an unlawful order! I repeat, stand down!’

Reminds me of the end scene in Gladiator.

He cannot change the constitution or even limit it by executive order. No matter what he does, expect a legal battle.
