Holder Confirms Obama Ready to Use Executive Order on Guns ‘in Absence of Meaningful Action’
PJMedia ^ | 1/29/2014 | Bridget Johnson

Posted on 01/31/2014 7:42:59 AM PST by rktman

Attorney General Eric Holder said at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing today that President Obama is open to using an executive action to push through gun-control and/or associated mental health measures that haven’t found approval in Congress.

Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), one of the top proponents of new gun-control measures in Congress, noted that Obama only made a “very brief” reference to gun violence in his State of the Union address.

“But I hope, and I hope you will join me in the view that the president remains completely committed to ending gun violence in this country, adopting common sense sensible measures like background checks and mental health initiatives; a ban on straw purchases and illegal trafficking,” Blumenthal said to Holder at the Justice Department oversight hearing.

Government is the greediest, most corrupt and murderous force on Earth.

"Gun violence" is how government gets its way.

This is TOTALLY the fault of the HOR. On any issue that comes up, enough US Senators and HOR reps abandon us in favor of their corporate-greed paymasters. Now, Obama has the precedence of getting away with these executive orders for issues that fail.

Why doesn't the HOR refuse to fund the implementation of Obama's executive orders? And for heaven's sake, stop talking about selling out and cashing in on the invasion of the US.

“Yes, we do still have that commitment,” Holder responded, adding that “if the American people, legislators, members of Congress, had had the ability to be with me” when he visited the scene of the Newtown shooting “to walk through those classrooms and see the caked blood, to see the tufts of carpet that I didn’t quite understand when I first saw it – the carpet picked up. And then I realized that that was – those were bullets – where bullets had gone through and picked up the carpet. If people had seen the crime scene search pictures of those little angels, I suspect that the outcome of our – that effort that we mounted last year would have been different.”

Too bad Holder and the rest of the baby killers don’t feel this way about abortion.

Also, maybe we could take them on a tour of the former country of East Germany and show them what happens when the sheeple are disarmed. Heck, maybe he could accompany Rodman on his next trip to North Korea.

Well, we know Obama is a Communist and he wants to be a dictator...so you can't blame him for trying.

We can only blame ourselves if we don't slap him down.

***”..background checks and mental health initiatives; a ban on straw purchases and illegal trafficking,”***

Problem solved in 1968.

“Today we begin to disarm the criminal and the careless and the insane. All of our people who are deeply concerned in this country about law and order should hail this day.

What he means by banning straw purchases is to ban the people from buying the gun and gifting it to anyone.

Mental defective who should be disarmed: anyone who voted against Obama. It just stands to reason, comrade.

Real world: any NY resident who ever consulted a mental health professional must turn in his state FOID & surrender his firearms.

It’s come to this.

"common sense sensible measures"

Politicians generally resort to labeling something as a "common sense" when they can't provide any logical justification. "Common sense sensible measures" sounds like something that will make absolutely no sense to anyone but Kool-Aide drinkers/low-information voters.

I expect most of the illegal gun demands will happen at a couple levels above the consumer.

Just read an article on (Blumenthal's own state) Konnecticut's assault (scarey-looking) rifle and high-capacity (standard) magazine registration participation.

Only 50K of the estimated 500K affected rifles were registered - I suspect similar ratios in New York and other Commie states.

THAT'S what has them so pissed - non-compliance (by the non-sheep).

Hahaha let’s see how far IRANIAN AGENT Soebarkah gets seizing guns.

Seen his scalp lately?

I’m changing my guess from ‘Indonesian with hair plugs’ to ‘Indonesian with shaved head and theatrical latex-substrate synthetic afro panels.’

Aka theatrical wig.

Notice all those scars around his head? Those are SEAMS where they blend each section into the next.

This is most obvious at his Right temple. His entire temple hairline is edged by a piece of latex covered in makeup.

You can see it.

Great leader is ready for some ‘meaningful action’ of guns? Hmmm... Nothing I can say after this could not be construed as a threat, so I’ll just say there is a certain ambiguity at work in this idea.

My question is this: What sort of executive orders do you think he can issue that will effect the “right to keep and bear arms” more than they already have?

I mean the ‘rumors’ have it that most of the ammunition being produced is being bought up by various Fed agencies. The EPA finally shut down the last lead mine and smelter. The armed forces are being forced to go to ‘green ammunition’.

So what’s next?

Wait till they discover Obama's NOT BLACK.

My guess?

He's an IRANIAN plant (from Indonesia/South Pacific) with afro hairplugs (CORRECTION: shaved head + theatrical hair panels on latex base).

Notice all these scalp sections, divided by scars/seams?



ALL those scars?

Go see for yourself -- do a search and look at photos.

He's had hair work done.

His scalp is fully sectioned off.

ORANGE line: Why is there a 'vein' running the entire edge of his temple hairline? Because it's a seam (the edge of his LATEX THEATRICAL WIG PANEL, smoothed by stage makeup).

PURPLE line: Another SEAM (aka 'scar') along the rear edge of that same 'side/section' of hair.



PS if I 'die of natural causes' anytime soon, it means I got Fuddy'd or Breitbarted. I'm in PERFECT HEALTH.
