I expect Obama will explain how his executive actions would have prevented the mass murders at the Navy Yard.

Yes, I'm being sarcastic.

Maybe Obama and the 2nd Amendment handwringers will finally go after AR15 shotguns! They're a menace, just ask CNN.

Didnt this killer have a valid military clearance and didnt he steal the guns he used?

There is a great place to start.

You’d think that a “Constitutional law expert” would understand that he CANNOT legislate.

Which will accomplish exactly nothing, unless you count further oppressing the law abiding, who had nothing to do with this.

But let's face it, this provides yet another excuse to further the agenda, which is, as we here all know, civilian disarmament and a government monopoly on force.

FUBO.

This bastard child in the White House is arming Syrian terrorists and we are supposed to believe he gives a damn about human life.

He’s gun grabbing in violation of the Constitution.

He has effectively made himself a dictator and reduced the congress to a potted plant.

The people need to start asking their “representatives” why are they there if the executive branch negates the need for laws.

Under what authority does the Chief Executive create new laws (especially when congress refuses to pass the laws he want to implement)?

What is difference between a dictator and a Chief Executive that can create new laws while at the same time ignore exiting laws (by failing to enforce them)?

Where is the Republican party?

I do not expect the media to say anything but you would think the opposition party would have something to say about this President trying to do by executive order that he has been unable to get done by the legislative process.

Another headline:

What could go wrong? After all Obama and Holder have experience with this in Mexico.

Ah, yes, the expedient President, that which cannot be legislated must be executed. Yeah, ask me about the word executed ..., multiple meaning right? Are we going to get to a point where we debate its meaning like a predecessor did?

This will be interesting. Since he is one of the few Presidents who has went along with the expanding of gun access in the US, ie National Parks, Amtrak.

Criminally insane persons should not be permitted to walk in a free society.

Putting a litmus test on gun ownership does nothing to keep the crazy from killing with poison, pillows, knives, cars, baseball bats, etc.

If they cannot legally be held accountable for their actions, they should require a legal guardian in their company at all times. Essentially house arrest or institutionalization.

The drugs don’t make them “normal”. They make them PASS for normal.

This is just gun grabbing.

I sure hope they can think of some way to solve this problem.

If these types of shootings continue to occur, the creators of "Gun Free Zones" will lose ALL credibility...

Nadil Hasan was given a "pass" even though he was known to be in communication with Al Qaeda, was known to have made violent outbursts "death threats" against the "infidel", etc.

Without our diversity in the military, the loss of Nadil Hasan would've been a "bigger tragedy" than the murder of over a dozen American men, women, and children, and the wounding of dozens more. So said Big Brass.

Someone (mayor of DC?) was blaming this on the sequestration.... If they just had more money, he would not have slipped through, it seems.

What people are not getting about this shooting and Fort Hood is that we have told the world’s leaders and terrorist exactly where to attack our military and their operations so they can not defend themselves.

“I guess he’ll just have to do this on his own since no one in congress will listen.” “O knows what’s best for his subjects so whatever he says goes.” He says “jump”, I say “how high”. “That’s how real leaders lead.”

Most of the above has been said by my liberal in laws. Except for “subjects”. This is why I refuse to go to family reunions.

Yes, it’s common sense to stop coddling protected classes and get rid of affirmative action. Fort Hood and the Navy Yard would never have happened before PC rooted into our culture.

I think D.C. should enact much stricter gun laws. I think this would deter Navy personnel who have clearance after 2 shooting felonies from shooting up a secure military area.

More alarming than the fact that they are issuing executive orders is that they aren’t saying what those executive actions are. Go ahead Jay, tell us all what measures you’re going to take that would have changed anything. good luck with that.

If Rand Paul says he’s running for President and will permanently sign a number of laws (ie: outlawing Executive Orders, requiring Congressional Approval before ANY military strikes) I’m voting for him.

Is he contemplating (as need more public outrage/outcry) or is he implementing?

As far as I’m concerned, background checks, registration, and restrictions are simply sell outs to the path of least resistance.

Background checks are an utterly useless waste of time and money.
