Skip to comments.Obama: ‘Executive Action’ on Gun Control ‘Within My Authority as President’
Posted on 01/14/2013 11:18:53 AM PST by chessplayer
(CNSNews.com) President Barack Obama said Monday he would take executive action pertaining to gun control. Though he wasnt specific, he said some would have to do with tracing guns.
Under no circumstances allow yourself to betaken away. Better to die on your feet.
Sorry, Barak, gun control is not possible, given our Constitution.
By the power of num skull.
HE HAS NO SUCH AUTHORITY (and he knows it)
I wonder if they will leave us with B-B air guns or take those too,
Pfft. You aren't even an American.
The boy is clueless when it comes to the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights. It’s time to impeach the low life.
Last time under a Democrat it was Japanese-Americans. Who wins a free stay in the Internment Camps this time?
Any E.O. that restricts the Bill of Rights is tantamount to declaring Martial Law.
It’s within Congress’s authority (AND RESPONSIBILITY) to impeach him for not upholding his oath to protect and defend the Constitution. As a matter of fact, it’s long overdue.
Comrade Ozero is NOT clueless - he knows exactly what he is doing.
Comrade Ozero is overthrowing America by destroying the Constitution.
He can start a civil war by EO, too.
Look for internet sales to take off.
Must prove, with documented tracking (100%), of all “Fast and Furious” weapons prior to any consideration of further action. Otherwise, pure BS as typical of ( )o( )bama.
By so stridently proclaiming his pre-eminent authority, we will get to see if he wants a war or not. Anything less than confiscation will be a sign of weakness(or fear)on his part. With previous presidents that would be a bit of a stretch. With this one, not so much.
Executive Action by the People with our Contitutional Control of our Guns is Within Our Authority as the People, you SOB
Tried buying an .22 rimfire anywhere? Online? At a sporting goods store? Not a bullet in sight.
Assassination is the new wrinkle. Two prominent YouTube pro-gun people have been executed with a single shot to the back of the head in the last week. The owner of Noeveske Rifleworks had a suspicious, fatal car accident a day after he posted a correlation between mass shooters and the SSRI's they were taking. Covert assassination to deal with the pro-gun element of society. NDAA to make it legal.
Expected. He knows the GOP won’t challenge him and he is daring the Court to do something years from now.
I don't think Bonehead et.al doesn't have the stones to do it and he will never be convicted in the Senate to think otherwise is foolish. This is what the GOP gets with milquetoast moderate Mass republican't governors.
But Obama taught Con Law at the University of Chicago, only problem is he had and has no clue as to what the Constitution really means. He is one of those jerks that thinks the Constitution is a “living document” and can be changed to mean whatever they want it to mean at the time.
You left off those pesky Germans and Italians who were interned at the same time. The ones that the PBS-NPR-Ken Burns-types like to leave out of their documentaries.
Really? If true, then I may have to find another vendor even though I am more Fudd than I am tacticool.
Of course he doesn’t. He can order agencies under the Executive branch to do a lot of things...however, in matters as grave as having to do with the Second Amendment, the EO must have some basis, established relevancy and applicability to existing law to be ‘legal’.
That said, he’ll try it - have the ATF and DHS ban further imports of those nasty AK variants, ban foreign magazines, etc. He’ll even dangle money in front of the states to enforce bans on their own.
That said, and I’ve said this more than once here recently. I am NOT his employee, He can’t order ME to do squat. I am NOT his subject! I won’t comply to registration and I’ll resist confiscation.
“Who wins a free stay in the Internment Camps this time?”
White on earth—um, I mean what on earth are you talking about?
Old white men like me, I guess.
As he undermines the Constitution, he undermines the legitamacy of his Oath of Office which is Constitutionally based. Hence he becomes a dictator.
How should we react to a dictator?
Any other action he might take is not Presidential; it is dictatorial, tyrannical, and a violation of his oath of office.
It is outrageous that we have elected dems on one side of the gun “debate” and private citizens like the NRA on the other. The elected beltway GOP is nowhere to found defending our rights.
McConnell and Boehner are trembling in fear of the dems on this issue... The dims throw bombs and they hide for cover under their desks instead of fighting back. Disgraceful.
See info in the comments at this link.
Moe likely they are sold out and suppliers are backordered.
NO YOU EFFING DON’T !!!!!!
THOSE POWERS ARE RESERVED TO THE CONGRESS AND THE PEOPLE.
YOU WANT TO CHANGE THE LAWS WORK WITHIN THAT CONSTRUCT!!!
BONE and CANTER BETTER BITCH SLAP THIS DOWN OR IT’S ON LIKE DONKEY KONG.
Yup. They don’t have to ban guns. Just ban the ammo.
Check out the online gun stores and you will see a massive array of “sold out” signs.

Not if the marxists have the votes on the USSC. They will rubber stamp anything. It is a short way to real tyranny from here.
Where do I sign my name in a bold flourish !?!??!!!
Render unto God what is God's, and unto Caesar what is Caesar's.
Caesar is getting to be due an ass kicking.
I guess you’re right about the USSC....however, it isn’t completely gone to the dark side yet. There are still some sparks of sanity there, even with Roberts’ foray there with ObamaCare. I’m praying he got bitch-slapped back to the light side in the aftermath of that.
And, finally, when there is no respite of good and decency left from our ‘leaders,’ we must lead ourselves. That includes standing on one’s principles, even if it means life. Our forefathers did it; if they were alive today, they’d expect no less.
Sorry, 0bama. Unconstitutional according to both federal and state constitutions is not something that an executive order can override no matter what your lawyers are telling you. You want to discard a Constitutional amendment, there’s a procedure and this isn’t it.
I CAN’T believe that he has not decided to ban all ammo. He really is dumb. I am thankful for that big time. If he banned all ammo that would keep the 2nd Amendment and still accomplish his dictatorship. We are lucky to have such a bozo.
Do it jug ears... you will LOSE this fight!
This should be a piece of cake since they've been so good tracing guns for Fast and Furious.
No it isn’t. You cannot administrate the Constitution out of existence.
it’s about time we hold them to the law.
contact your state attorney general and have they push charges against the supervisor of elections for failing to collect citizenship and other eligibility information as required to assume office. of course, allow the supervisor off the hook... if they collect the information NOW
0bama has spent millions to avoid officially submitting any documentation... and has never submitted the information to ANY state, either in 2008 or 2012
it’s about time we hold them to the law... force him to supply the information OFFICIALLY
then we can take the next step
I have reached the point where I really want him to go for it! Nothing will throw a monkeywrench in the gun grabbers plans better than getting their political teeth kicked in. I want him to convince himself that he is a superstar, that he can really do it, that he is The One who can finally make it happen. I want him to stretch out his political arm for the brass ring and get it lopped clean off by the people. Go ahead - sign an Order banning some guns or ordering Sheriffs across the country to start making lists of who owns what. Then watch as one after another people tell the Feds to p!ss off. What a fantastic day that would be! Then watch as he gets angrier and angrier until the real Barry comes out and he says something nasty about middle class people or the military on camera, something that a lot of the people who voted for him can’t ignore. Something that forces the Dems hoping to be re-elected to put some space between themselves and him. Oh, what great feeding frenzy that would be if the Dems and the Progs start turning on each other.
