I would imagine that all the residents without a firearm wished they had one during the ordeal in Watertown.
I was under the impression that His Cadaverhood, the dishonorable Harry Reid, pulled the base bill, S.649, which all the amendments would have been amending. With no base bill, what's to amend?
My understanding is more like internal executive-branch policy statements on issues over which they have discretion without making new law. IOW, they can't make something legal that's illegal or vice versa, but they have some autonomy in determining how to carry out the responsibilities of their branch, and as the head of it, POTUS has the most autonomy of anyone in the branch. So the ones that he came out with right after Newton were fine, like "Do some research on this or that", or "Examine procedures to ensure, blah, blah, blah..."
The press was pillorying them on S.649 and they didn't cave, for once. OTOH, they only needed 40 for that and didn't get 50. I bet they need at least 51 to override an EO.
I don't believe they go away automatically. It's an official decree of exec branch policy. Now all it takes is for some other POTUS to write another one rescinding it, so it's not like it's difficult, but they usually don't, and I believe they're assumed to be in force till explicitly rescinded.
In case you haven't noticed, Joe, we're under attack AGAIN......and you traitors LOST on trying to grab our guns. I realize it's difficult for a twit such as yourself to focus but try and keep up, Joe.
I don't know....I'd heard that he actually HAD tated his share of dicks.
This is an emergency. King Putt’s dream of Amerika is slipping away.
Ok, thanks for the good answer.
