Skip to comments.Obama: Some Gun Control Measures 'I Can Accomplish Through Executive Action'
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.

You know he is going to do it. 'Ee caint hep 'imself...
well since no one is going to stop him, I guess he’s right....
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Go for it Jug Ears!!!
I’m hoping Mark Levin has his Landmark Legal Org fired-up to file suit against this illegal EO crap, right away.
Obama is about to throw the Dems under the bus for 2014 and go play golf.
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.
well since no one is going to stop him, I guess hes right....
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?
Reloading will get a bit more populare methinks.
Bring it, jugears...
**** I can accomplish through executive action.****
Reminded me of an old movie. EXECUTIVE ACTION.
The way dem Congress has been acting lately, I think you are right and the dumb dems know its not going to go well for them, but he’s their boy. As granny used to tell us, you made your bed, now lie in it.
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.
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.
Likely will make some of these foreign companies to set up shop in the US.
Looks like he’s following the advice shouted so much on discussion boards (”EO,” conspiracy, dictatorship, end of the world, etc.). Bad advice. Most Democrats would switch parties, stop voting, hate the richest few constituents behind gun control, and so on. They like their snazzy firearms to go with their other stylish, tacticool apparel, too.
It’s more obvious every day, that the whole effort is to push prices and availability out of reach of the peasants. Look at prices for the hugely available AR bolt carrier groups on Ebay. Heh—yesterday, scalpers raking in about $500 dollars for each bolt carrier group.
Most likely, yet more subgroups of constituents will be further outlawed by bipartisan elites before long. So far, it’s fathers in child custody disputes (’90s, VAWA, restraining order accusations, misdemeanors) and a few others (veterans with PTSD-whatever-new-letters-added-to-the-acronym). Maybe they’ll go after people with lowbrow credit scores or employment histories with gaps.
That’s because (IMHO) AR-15’s suck.
I’ll put my Saiga (that I lost in an unfortunate boating accident) up against it any day.
Can you say “Impeachment?”
Seems to me the DEMONcRATS constantly complained about Dick Cheney having too much power. Is it just me, or does this have the smell of Obozo playing second fiddle to BiteMe???
Reloaders are in the same boat.
Components have dried up - primers and powder. Folks who sell reloaded ammo are stuck as they can't get components, either.
***No more imports of ammo or gun parts.***
Again this is beginning to look more like 1968 when Bobby Kennedy was killed with a cheap American made handgun.
The libs cobbled together a bill that covered almost everything they hated in the 1968 Gun Control Bill.
It banned the import of 5 shot army surplus rifles and handguns, banned small foreign made handguns, banned the import “military” items.
It did NOT ban the manufacture of the handgun used to kill Bobby Kennedy, or stop the manufacture of small American made handguns.
So some of the foreign companies built parts and shipped them to the US for assembly.
One gun dealer in Tulsa, OK was raided because he imported foreign made MILITARY EQUIPMENT! What was the equipment? MUSKET FLINTS.
About the only thing I think that I see him being able to do is to stop the import of some weapons to this country. He can direct the ATF to issue opinions and then threaten importers with ‘action’. An effective embargo.
I don’t think he can stop the manufacturer of AR-15s, etc. He could also withhold federal funding to those states currently allowing magazine sizes greater than 10 rounds.
He should know this, I hope for most gun owners like myself:
We are not his employees who have to follow his orders; we are not his subjects. We are not going to comply with registration, nor present our weapons for confiscation.
My DEMOCRAT Congressman (Barrow) said on the radio this very morning that:
1. He refuses to vote for any new gun control legislation.
2. That, if proposed, it will not pass the House.
3. That he is not in the minority of Southern Democrats whom see it this way.
3. And... that any E.O. that Obama writes “won’t be worth the paper he writes it on.” /Direct quote.
Exactly what can he accomplish via EO? Maybe insist that the existing laws be enforced? We know what a stickler he is for enforcing the letter of the law....
I'm assuming you're talking about those 'open' bolt carrier groups of early design....
Never Again, wanna bet?
***He could also withhold federal funding to those states currently allowing magazine sizes greater than 10 rounds.***
Forty two years ago Viet Cong blacksmiths, back in the jungle, were using sheet metal and tin snips to manufacture 30 round magazines for captured M-16s.
Does O really think he can stop Americans from manufacturing a 30 rounder if they wanted to?
Remember, these same VC blacksmiths where hand making copies of the .45 1911 pistol.
since Congress and the Courts are complicit co-conspirators to the new Caesar....
” Caesar’s very first enactment after becoming consul was, that the proceedings both of the senate and of the people should day by day be compiled and published. He also revived a by-gone custom, that during the months when he did not have the fasces an orderly should walk before him, while the lictors followed him. He brought forward an agrarian law too, and when his colleague [Bibulus, Caesar’s co-counsel] announced adverse omens,16 he [Caesar] resorted to arms and drove him from the Forum; and when next day Bibulus made complaint in the senate and no one could be found who ventured to make a motion, or even to express an opinion about so high-handed a proceeding (although decrees had often been passed touching less serious breaches of the peace), Caesar’s conduct drove him to such a pitch of desperation, that from that time until the end of his term he did not leave his house, but merely issued proclamations announcing adverse omens.
2 From that time on Caesar managed all the affairs of state alone and after his own pleasure [without regard to the Senate or Bibulus]; so that sundry witty fellows, pretending by way of jest to sign and seal testamentary documents,17 wrote “Done in the consulship of Julius and Caesar,” instead of “Bibulus and Caesar,” writing down p27the same man twice, by name and by surname. Presently too the following verses were on everyone’s lips:
“In Caesar’s year, not Bibulus’, an act took place of late;
For naught do I remember done in Bibulus’ consulate.”
From: Suetonius’ De Vita XII Caesarum, S. 20
Nope. That will take someone with the one thing that Republicans in the House—guts- to file articles of impeachment. And you can forget about the Senate convicting him.
Yeah VP Biden is the one he assigned / tasked to deal with the 2nd Amendment / gun control issues my a$$. He’s giving the marching orders and pinning it on his VP to keep the crosshairs aimed the other direction,
AT least you know the man’s not dumb. If he gets a gun control mandate ipassed you’re going to see his entire disposition and demeanor change and then his true nature will come out horns and all
Just so everyone knows, when the left says “gun violence,” they really mean “gun ownership.”
So, when they talk about “reducing gun violence,” it means “reducing gun ownership.”
IMHO, the AR15 is a fine choice because it is chambered for the same cartridge that may be used by our adversaries in the coming unpleasantness. Remember, your civilian weapon is only useful as a means to procure a military weapon. Unless your Saiga is a class III weapon and you’ve got buttloads of ammo, mags and spare parts, you’ll be handing it off shortly after hostilities begin. Saiga ammo and magazines won’t be much use in an M4, but AR ammo and mags work just fine.
We bought a reloader for our son in law but having hard time getting casings,and other reloading supplies for it had to resort to using my metal locator in the back pasture where we and others shoot to scavenge up around 400 or so rounds of assorted casings.
I've never been big into reloading but I have a good inventory of equipment, powder, primers, bullets, cases, etc.
...run the show, even.
Hey Obama. If you want to save lives by taking away our guns, why don’t you save innocent kids by closing Planned Parenthood?
Look for internet sales to take off.
Proud graduate of the Chavez/Castro/Morales School Of Dictatorial Governance.
You don’t suppose the fix has been in from the beginning, do you?
We don’t need just sheet metal and tin snips...
Withhold federal funding for what? About the only good that came out of the SCOTUS Obamacare ruling is that there must be a nexus between the federal funds withheld and the reason for withholding the funds.
