Skip to comments.Biden: W.H. eying 19 executive actions on guns
Posted on 01/15/2013 6:25:55 AM PST by LucianOfSamasota
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.

If he does, and the RINOs don’t initiate impeachment proceedings, things are going to get hot.
Yes the Feds are so great with guns and overseeing their use - as in Fast and Furious. The Justice Dept could handle all this for us.
Our rights and freedoms are being taken away quickly. The contract between We the People and the government has been broken. The Bill of Rights is toast. We now have a dictatorship in this country.
And impeachment did how much good with Bill Clinton? And the Repubs controlled the Senate then.....
Who ended up being painted as the “bad guys”?
I agree they need to do it - should have already on other matters. But they need to do something with teeth in it.
And there are almost no Repubs in either House or Senate with any teeth.....
At this point, anything is better than nothing, but nothing is what they will do.
The Battle of Athens was an armed rebellion led by WWII veterans and citizens in Athens and Etowah, Tennessee, United States, against the tyrannical local government in August 1946.
On MSNBC this morning, Joe RINO and the Lefitists were begging the GOP to “embrace moderates like Colin Powell” to make the Republican Party stronger.
This tells you everything you need to know about the current GOP. It needs to die. The RINOs should join the Big Government Party that wins elections, the Democrats. Patriots who believe in individual rights as recognized by the Constitution ought to oppose them with every fiber of their being. There is no middle ground.
Next time we won't be so lucky.
2013 will be 45 years of Gun laws and Gun bans.
All of which were going to make America safer.
And all of which have failed.
Talk about being, “Stuck On Stupid”.
That means you, spineless republicans. Aiding and abetting domestic enemies through cowardly inaction makes you a domestic enemy.

My healthcare was the last entitlement under the American social contract that any of you people are going to be taking from me.
There’s nothing else to say.
After all this smoke clears, all they will have accomplished is making us a lot poorer and gun dealers a lot richer.
“Who ended up being painted as the bad guys?”
[rhetorical answer to your rhetorical question]
The Left controls the media.
The media controls the “paint brush and palette”.
Conservatives will ALWAYS end up being painted as the bad guys, no matter what we do.
Therefore, since we will be labeled (libeled?) the bad guys anyway, DO THE RIGHT THING!
The old school-yard rhyme said, “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.”
If we (and the conservative members of Congress) are such wimps that we cower at the threat of mere words, what will we do when they bring out the “sticks and stones”?
"The Presidents actions are not just an attack on the Constitution and a violation of his sworn oath of office they are a direct attack on Americans that place all of us in danger
If the President is allowed to suspend constitutional rights on his own personal whims, our free republic has effectively ceased to exist."
Reaching out to those who will have to enforce Obama’s tyranny is something that should continue, but there is no doubt already a significant support within those forces. Our military combat units could easily refuse action against other Americans on American soil. Refusing an order like this isn't the same as deciding to violently resist. As soon as one man stands up I think it would sat off a chain reaction.
I also don't think federal law enforcement want anything to do with even a small armed resistance. We have to remember that our times have changed. The vast majority of Americans can't even accept the realities of war anymore which is why we haven't won a war since WW2. Most Americans will sat on the sidelines, and after any significant resistance our law enforcement agencies like the ATF would lose their will once learning what it will cost to escalate the situation.
Gee, here I assumed the executive branch couldn’t arbitrarily change the Constitution. Of course, I’d assumed a non-NBC could dictate to us and I’d assumed the other two branches and US citizens would stand up to such. I was wrong.
We won in Grenada. And we won the first desert storm in the 1990's.
There will be blood.
“That means you, spineless republicans. Aiding and abetting domestic enemies through cowardly inaction makes you a domestic enemy. “
Yes, and that includes all you “ostriches” here on FR who think the solution to all our problems is to move to Texas (or some other place where you have to kick the cow $hit off your boots)! Just how does “being in Texas” solve your gun registration problem if this stuff passes. Inquiring minds want to know! Now let’s see, Oklahoma was originally setup as a place for all the indians. Maybe all the “decent people” should huddle there! All the Big Chief No Nuts here who want to cut and run may like that option.
Maybe he plans to auto-pen himself the right to auto-pen changes. Yea, that works.
When is Obama planning on entering the House to start calling out names,
then have members dragged outside for extermination.
My point was that the Repubs need to do something that is effective, with teeth in it.
No, I don’t have any idea what.
They need to - but won’t - do something that will wound him politically or slow him down.
“If he does, and the RINOs dont initiate impeachment proceedings, things are going to get hot.”
Yep. This kind of thing is what the phrase “chit storm” was invented for.
The Justice Department will be much more thorough with the People than it could ever garner interests for in hindering the really bad guys.
