Biden: W.H. readies 19 executive actions on guns By: Reid J. Epstein January 14, 2013 06:49 PM EST

The White House has identified 19 executive actions for President Barack Obama to move unilaterally on gun control, Vice President Joe Biden told a group of House Democrats on Monday, the administration’s first definitive statements about its response to last month’s mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Later this week, Obama will formally announce his proposals to reduce gun violence, which are expected to include renewal of the assault weapons ban, universal background checks and prohibition of high-capacity magazine clips. But Biden, who has been leading Obama’s task force on the response, spent two hours briefing a small group of sympathetic House Democrats on the road ahead in the latest White House outreach to invested groups.

The focus on executive orders is the result of the White House and other Democrats acknowledging the political difficulty of enacting any new gun legislation, a topic Biden did not address in Monday’s meeting.

“It was all focusing on enforcing existing law, administering things like improving the background database, things like that that do not involve a change in the law but enforcing and making sure that the present law is administered as well as possible,” said Rep. Bobby Scott (D-Va.).

But Biden did indicate that the remains of the Obama campaign apparatus may be activated in the effort.

“He said that this has been a real focus on the policy and that the politics of this issue, that a strategy on the politics of the issue hasn’t been undertaken yet,” Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.) told POLITICO. “He did remind us that the campaign infrastructure is still accessible.”

Selective enforcing of the laws they like and not enforcing the ones they don’t. FUBO

Mr Biden’s last name is pronounced Ger-Bels.

I remember when our country believed in the rule of law. The more I watch what Americans permit Obama to get away with, the more I realize just how long ago that was.

Thank you, Obama voters, for helping to bring down the greatest country ever on the face of the earth. He WON and we all lost.

My tinfoil hat is chiming in here:

Why would he use the number nineteen?
Something to do with Gun Appreciation day on the 19th?
Would this be sending a signal, perhaps?

Don’t expect Congress or the courts to defend your right to keep and bear arms. YOU will have to take a stand. YOU will have to resist.

Although he’s a nobody, we must remember to also have Rimshot Joe arrested at the same time Barry is arrested for violating the Second Amendment rights of Americans.

Would any one of those 19 have prevented Sandy Hook from happening or prevent future Sandy Hook type attacks?

Or are these more punitive, aimed at gun owners?

The simple fact that the girly-man Boehner and McConnel will NOT stand up for our Constitution is as infuriating as the actions that the Marxist will undertake.

It is certain that the path the Marxists are on will compel "We the People" to take back our government and restore our Republic.

“And which republican is going to stand up to obamie?”

Exactly!

Let that sink in, folks. What does that mean?

IMO, this whole thing is a lost game unless we’re willing to cross that line.

FROM. MY. COLD. DEAD. NRA CARD CARRYING. HANDS. Sonsofbitches!

"But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: for men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away, for his name is Obama."
