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 administrations first definitive statements about its response to last months 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 Obamas 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 Mondays 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 hasnt been undertaken yet, Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.) told POLITICO. He did remind us that the campaign infrastructure is still accessible.

This will be great news if Obama and the democrats do this.
As Captian Johnny Parker stated so very long ago on that day on Lexington Green in Concord, “If it’s war they want, let it begin here, let it begin now.”
Farrakhan was enamored with the number 19.
He re-elected HIMSELF, America didn’t. Did you really expect the Chicago thug to allow an election to proceed without tampering with it? NO.
Wow - I can’t wait to forced to register with a national database so some journalist can spill my personal information all over the internet. :)
It may be time to have Citizens openly oppose this president in the streets, supporter against supporter, in order that law is returned to prominence.
May the SEALs descend upon the WH the moment 0bama signs any EO which alters Americans’ ‘inalienable’ right to bear arms.
Thanks to all here who wanted to stop the Mormon. Thanks to those who went 3rd Party -— how did that Gary Johnson or Tom Hoefling vote work out? Look where we are now.
Civil Disobedience is about to manifest. Let them come.

Oh come on King Obama go for it and make “new” law by decree.
Oh come on King Obama go for it and make
10 day waiting period for ammo? Special fee assessed on every bullet for firearms education and various enforcement?
Fee for every registered gun owner to take course or forfeit their firearms? License fee due each year for ownership?
Don’t put anything past these guys.
Uh huh... and who’s going to vote to convict? Harry Reid’s senate?
We are headed for civil war and/or national breakup. Period. The fuse has been lit, you cannot stop it. Its time people accept it and trying to think you can “system” your way out of it.
On Feb. 15th the SCOTUS has scheduled a hearing on 0bama’s elegibility . I can’t wait to hear this .
We need to remember he is our President and not our king. We are not peasants and he our master. We are AMERICANS and we owe it to those proud Americans who fought and many died to maintain our freedoms. We shall not less this one pass.
Anyone who can read a history book should be able to see that the left wants us totally disarmed so they can easily bend us to their will. I for one will not submit my freedom to this administration.
If Congress doesn't stop him both the President and Congress will have finally deemed themselves to be against the constitution lock stock and barrel and in need of replacement.
Somehow, I think there’ll be a good chance that it comes back to being about money.
It's a contest ~ will Obamugoober come out first as a moslem or as a queer? Bet it's neck and neck!
and ^stop trying to system your way out of it.
It is time for the Governors and the states to put a foot down. They must draw the line.
This is serious.
He did remind us that the campaign infrastructure is still accessible.
Sounds like he is unleashing the brownshirts. Ominous
