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.

Our forefathers took on the greatest Empire of its time and kicked ass.
Don`t Tread on Me!
Obummer is a Madman as crazy as Stalin, Mao and Hitler.
He thinks he is an Emperor.
The Second Amendment protects all the other amendments in the Bill of Rights.
For Obummer to speak against the Second Amendment is to hate the U.S. Consiutution and to hate America. Obummer is guilty of hate speech against America. Therefore he should be prosecuted and punished.
Thanks to all here who wanted to stop the Mormon.Wouldn't BO have won regardless? Isn't that what crooks do?
that’s all right, we’ll know which courts need some work done on them, then.
don’t forget difi and pelosi and reid.
Yeah, we can “civil war” our way out of it and into . . .
You have a dustup a bit more serious than the Whiskey Rebellion, but much less so than the Civil War, all sorts of things can happen.
I doubt your top Democrat crew will stay at the helm if something happens ~ you'll see Cuomo and his crowd leave the country ~ sail back to Sicilia more than likely, and their two goober senators will flee right behind them although Chucky might try again to convince the Israelis that he's really Jewish so they gotta' let him in ~ lotsa luck Chucky ~ nobody believes you on that score!
You'd see the same thing all over the country with Democrat politicians fleeing for their lives.
It’s also Calypso Louie Farrakhan’s favorite number...
The number 19 is Calypso Louie’s magic number. It’s also an important number in Islam.
“high-capacity magazine clips”
When I read or hear the above term, it is so easy to imagine the moron writing or speaking it. Generally a vision of Slow Joe appears.
19 hijackers on 9/11, too.
I have been making that statement for a good 6 years now ~ every year ~ same thing ~ and i was not wrong.
You can't beat a commie with a democrat unless they want you to.
Its a lot more realistic than expecting the traitorous rats voting to convict their own.
How dare they punish innocent law abiding citizens.
COME AND TAKE IT!
——We need to remember he is our President and not our king——
Someone might want to clue in our wanna be king...
Support your local militia....
they’re basing this generally on the outrage of Sandy Hook, and specifically on the “assault rifles”......But several reports are telling us that an assault rifle was not found in the building, but still in the trunk of the shooter’s vehicle. 0bama’s got a lot of convoluted treasonous messes going, but this one takes the cake.
