Obama: “Executive Action” On Gun Control “Within My Authority As President”
Freedom Outpost ^ | January 14, 2013 | Tim Brown

Posted on 01/15/2013 4:29:08 AM PST by yoe

Barack finished up the final press conference of his first term. During it he was questioned a number of times about his plans for gun control as Vice President Joe Biden prepares to deliver his recommendations tomorrow. What was most amazing was when he referenced his executive power and stated, “How we are gathering data on guns that fall into the hands of criminals, how we track that.” He also boldly declared that executive action could be taken and that “some steps that we can take that don’t require legislation and that are within my authority as president.”

First, before getting into this, did anyone else do a double take and shout at your television set or computer monitor about his administration’s lack of tracking about 2,500 weapons into the hands of criminals in Mexico under the watchful eye of the Obama Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives(BATFE)? In addition, his executive authority, as far as executive orders, ( do not allow him to go beyond dealing with those under his authority and those orders he gives may not be unlawful or against the Constitution.) Yeah, I thought most of you were with me on that one.

Pick up the phone or fax those you elected to speak for you....remind them that In 2008 and 2010, the Supreme Court issued two landmark decisions officially establishing this interpretation. In District of Columbia v. Heller, 554 U.S. 570 (2008), the Court ruled that the Second Amendment protects an individual's right to possess a firearm, unconnected to service in a militia[1][2] and to use that arm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home. In dicta, the Court listed many longstanding prohibitions and restrictions on firearms possession as being consistent with the Second Amendment.[3] In McDonald v. Chicago, 561 U.S. 3025 (2010), the Court ruled that the Second Amendment limits state and local governments to the same extent that it limits the federal government.

Obama’s executive action may lead to direct action from operators and patriots. Paging hundreds of Henry Bowmans!

“... shall not be infringed.” Says differently obozo. Going to be expensive for you to realize just how wrong you are.

Utilizing the second amendment for its intended purpose is within our authority as citizens of the United States!

You ain’t touching my guns, you commie punk!

Officially within his authority as president? Buahahahahahaha!

Obama wants a war.

He will have one.

This is the measure of Obama the Usurper. He thinks he can regulate 2nd amendment rights, and all rights in the Bill of Rights? Our God given rights are at Obama’s whim? He will bite the bullet.

Impeachment will commence in the house.

Obama and Holder give weapons to terrorists in Fast and
Furious and around the world (MANPADS) from Libya to Syria
to ????

But they promise, when the fight comes to the Homeland,
with terrorists bearing weapons given them by Holder,
all the American people shall NOT be able to protect themselves.

I am in fear that much like the Germany citizen “accepted” Hitler and the Gestapo - their is enough US Citizens or “others” that will “accept” what ever form of control Obama issues in what ever manner he decides to issue it...be it immediate, short or long term...

With that, I do put my trust in the US Citizen that does bear arms will do with responsibility - and care not what type of arm(s) that Citizen possesses.

If they want to save lives - then shut down Planned Parenthood! Those are no more than locally placed extermination camps!

Your rights come from God, not elected officials.

YOU want to keep them, then YOU do something.

Oh, some of us are here all right. However, without millions made from business or marrying the right person, how are we supposed to even run for office? I guarantee you I can get up and say what needs to be said eloquently and handle the opposition and the media.

It is not a one-person act either. One has to garner support of like minds and that's where the problem comes in. It is not so much of a lack of leadership as it is a lack of a moral foundation to create proper leaders. Without a large group of Godly people, you're not going to get leadership worth a flip. So, where's the support for getting it done? Crickets chirping....

Obama’s disregard for the U.S. Constitution meets the definition of war against the United States.

Obama needs to be tried for treason and sentenced appropriately.

Weare looking for a common sense answer to come from the guy who said we don’t have a spending problem in the Government.A common sense answer to come from the guy who allowed Fast & Furious and sent jets and tanks to Egypt and arms to Syria to help the Muslim Brtherhood.A common sense answer from the guy who flew from Hawaii and back twice for his vacation while we in America are squeezing a nickle until the buffalo sh**s.

A common sense answer he gave Joe Biden, the most stupid white man on the face of the earth to come up with.
