Vice President Joe Biden, while addressing representatives of gun safety and gun violence victims' groups, says President Obama could use "executive orders" to enact gun control measures.
VICE PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN: "The president is going to act. There are executives orders -- executive action that can be taken. We haven't decided what that is yet. But we're compiling it all with the help of the Attorney General and all the rest of the cabinet members as well as legislative action, we believe is required."

He took the Dream Act via executive order and you didn’t say anything....
Good Call! "The Restoration" it will be.
So the bigger question is to wonder what EO’s they will attempt and how we begin to combat them. Thoughts anyone?
Me? Why nothing of course. My only interest in firearms is the stocks in firearm and ammo companies in my portfolio.
Maybe we've all sold our firearms to other people.
No? Sure we did - private sale - no reciept. None required.
politicians either don’t have a clue or don’t care if they were in touch with their constituents they would see 50% of America is fed up with this usurper President and his foreign to America marxist petty dictator ways. The people dont have itchy pants they have an itchy trigger finger.
A registry didn’t work in Canada and it won’t work here.
the marxists started the revolution its up to the people and a counter revolution to restore it...those that began the revolution ie the current administration are thus traitors not those restoring America to a Constitutional Republic.
Great find at 158!
I'm from MA so I'm used to a different set of rules....such as Diane Feinstein is pushing for.
Private sales are fine but a firearm needs to be registered. If it isn't, you face 1 year in prison mandatory if found in possession of such. Registration must be transferred from 1 party to the other via form FA-10 which is kept on file with the Firearms Safety Bureau.
All of this crap and soooo much more is thanks to Mitt Romney.
Do they support and enforce any "law" that Chicago hood cares to sign, or the Constitution? We are living in historic times.
And that won’t be connected over the ‘net. It’s time we develop a method of comms using old-hat techniques and it’s time to get local...quickly.
Actually, he can't.
It's long past time for CW2. The only way we'll get our country back is by using bullets. You can't vote it out because half of this country likes it the way it is and a quarter of it just doesn't give a damn.
Is anybody surprised?
“This is not my America..... My America had a constitution. This America is ruled by a damn dictator.....”Realistically, where in the hell do we go from here?....”
I’m sitting here stunned. Do people actually understand what is happening? They will not stop until there is bloodshed and then we will be the violent ones who have to be dealt with. What good are my two weapons with 600 rounds of ammo?. I couldn’t surrender and live with myself if I didn’t fight for my country.
Hey, doug; I too voted for Romney but reluctantly.
Here’s why: at post #162, I believe in this instance of the 2nd Amendment, Obama v. Romney made little to no difference.
Romney would be just as dedicated a gun-grabber as Obama.
So now, the autocratic tyrants wish to disarm those of us who will not go quietly into the night as we still believe in and are willing to sacrifice and die to preserve the Constitution and rule of law founded upon in the beginning of America. Back in the beginning it was just a handful, maybe less than 10% that really risked anything to fight the British. What was the difference in 1770? The civilian population made a stand and organized starting from Concord and Lexington and gave the fledgling Congress time to organize an army. This stopped the British from disarming the people and gave time to organize a standing army. So if a tyrannical government in 2013 without first amending the Constitution to abolish the 2nd amendment, and doing so without States consent, attempts to defy our laws and confiscate weapons, what are the citizens to do?
The answer is to organize as we did in in 1770. To band together with a pledge to stand together or hang alone. In 2013 this would require gun friendly states to pass legislation preventing the federal government from taking civilian semi-auto rifles. In these states you could set up organizations for civilians to join as likeminded individuals with pledges to come to the aid of anyone the federal government attempted to disarm. Some states have anti militia laws attempting to prevent free men from banding together. You could form groups that share contact information that link up communication with other groups that pledge to up hold and defend the Constitution and to come to the aid of anyone threatened by confiscation. There are peaceful ways to set up and organize without breaking existing state laws banning militias in order to defend the ownership of arms protected by the 2nd amendment. It is time for our own rhetoric to be heard.
Does anyone think that this was a test to see where the noise would come from? Test a balloon like this, and then adjust your plan accordingly.
Obama may be a Kenyan. But is no fool.
He could shut down the instant check and make it a mail in check. And then cut the staff.
He could do a lot to drag this out.
He could revoke or not renew any FFL.
There is a lot he could do.
Don’t laugh at ol’ Joe; as before, he’s Obama’s stalking horse.
Not that the ruling class could be hung deader. I'm just sayin'...
A stout rope and a fine hangin’.
CCWs in Ga don’t need NICS
As for an FFL, personally I don’t want one because it gives the ATF right to inspect the premises/books IIRC.
But you are right. There is a lot. The main thing is to
Ignore outright turn in orders though.
Im sitting here stunned. Do people actually understand what is happening
Oh, I do- believe me, I do. And the sad thing is, apparently the majority wanted this and will go along with it. Just as long as the goodies keep coming and their ‘enemies’- (that would be us) are destroyed. they just want to live like slaves in a safe little utopia.
Ping for later.
Respectfully disagree. Romney would not try to go around the Constitution and issue executive orders.
To All Law Abiding Citizens,
Lock and Load!
But, someone has to make and operate that machinery.
As my state rep, who is a police officer, said today:
“I have spoken to many LEOs about gun confiscation. Standard reply: who do they think is going to do the confiscating?”
Primaries have consequences as well. Rick Perry not looking so bad now. He was right on top of gun rights and religious freedom from day one.
I live in MA...so everything is already as tight as a drum. However, I know many folks that have guns that have been passed down through their families that are a lot more powerful than anything the AWB would stop.
I am amazed at the stuff guys were able to bring back in ‘45.
Fast and Furious-what a joke. Obama and Holder are guilty in participating in the murders of the American and the Mexicans that were killed because those 2 sent guns for that purpose. The same thing was probably going on in Benghazi. When those two are held accountable and the Republicans gets some gonads and equate the two, then we can talk.
Anyone counting on the GOP or the SC to stop this is a fool. This one is up to us. Gut check.
You paint such a rosy picture with your well stated words.
We are in trouble and the worse it gets, the worse it gets. There doesn’t seem to be any Cavalry headed our way and relief is not in sight. There will be a breaking point, of that I am certain. This attack on the American People must stop, it just can’t continue without serious, perhaps even deadly repercussions.
Obama, his tribe and the democrats have split America into so many pieces that I am unsure if it is even possible to put it back together again.
What has taken over 230 years to build, with the blood, tears, sweat and lives of patriots, Obama has been able to bring to almost certain destruction in only 4 years.
We were once a great nation that worked together, but we have been transformed into separate groups that now hate and work against each other.
I am late to respond to your post because I have spent most of today shopping and buying last minute gun stuff over the internet.
I had figured that at my age, 64, I would be spending my money on fun things, not on ‘all out’ preparation for the uncertainty and unknowable.
I am a peaceful guy that respects the sanctity of life and I am too old to be much of a warrior, yet I keep thinking that I would have rather our enemies had come in uniform...
***Where did all the ‘good news’ go? Sad....
The commie Kenyan cannot nullify the Constitution with an executive order.
We have better odds in our favor to arrest Reid for refusing to submit budgets over the past three years.
good thing people decided that voting for Romney would be worse than this..
Texas would NOT go quietly into compliance with such a clear violation of our constitution!
Just like Waco huh? You texans reallllly stood up!
They can put forth an executive order to ban the law of gravity too.
What is being proposed by these lib fascists is AN INTOLERABLE ACT; the equivalent of banning anyone from criticizing government in speech or written word, unless “registered” after the proper 6 month background check, $200 tax stamp, local county judge sign off and no passing your argument to any 3rd party and will be erased from the record once you die.
This infringement on 1st amendment would never be accepted by majority of Americans, which people need to understand the importance of the 2nd as it provides teeth to liberty and all our unalienable God given rights. Once it’s down, we’ll lose all the other rights eventually.
Ignore all unconstitutional edicts from the regime, do so openly flagrantly with sh$t eating grins until they decide to start killing innocents, at which point just war is authorized, the rubicon’s been crossed with no other recourse. That starts the doctrine of 100 hundred heads:
(from the militia leader who broke Fast n Furious)
This could be BEST CASE SCENARIO — purge of the leadership, planners, enablers and MAYBE this would calm tyrannical urges down....because ruling class don’t care how many feds, police they lose but a narcissistic tyrant’s own mortality in the mix changes things...
...or it can dissolve into a chaotic bloody civil war of different factions and allegiances. That’s the problem with the Obots — I said it a few years ago, are you idiots ready to die for your Kenyan idol? Some of the law enforcement will follow orders, others won’t. Some will be apathetic or clueless.
If it comes to our Constitutional rights having to be enforced, then let it be on ruling tyrants who have committed treason and violated their oaths. There are calls on blogs, comment sections for wiping out families, etc. Civilians, police collateral damage don’t win the public support in a guerrilla war. My opinion is this would be a shadow war in urban locale like this blog predicts:
“What will be the likely model of american insurrection, if gun control doesn’t go well?”
So the regime takes losses, how will regime respond? Expect clampdowns, further security nets dropping certain locations or martial law, drones, other “emergency” edicts or EO’s. Possible triggers to social unrest from underclass, all kinds of scenarios, in other words - SHTF. Which we all knew was coming anyway with unstable economy.
Another tidbit is how many will keep their oaths in the current administration, in all the security services, etc and will act in that regard, even by disseminating intel on the regime or other subversive actions...
Divide and conquer
And let them hope that all that we do.
If he can be a Community Organizer then consider us Constitutional Organizers and prepare ourselves to Organize our assets for that fight.
First: Guns. (2nd Amendment)
Second: Talk Radio and Internet. (1st Amendment)
It's happening folks. Wake up and smell the Cuban Cafe Serrano.
Weapon up. Arm up. Ammo up. (While still legal in your state or locality). The sacred blood of our founding fathers, our revolutionary war patriots, cannot have been spilled for nothing. They will not prevail. There are millions of us, we are pissed off, and we are NOT going to take it. They know this and they FEAR this. I have read their private writings. This is the single biggest fear they have about the American Populace. That they are already heavily armed. Too bad they wrote that crap, not thinking any outsiders would read it. I know, man, where their "heads are" (waxing 1960s here).
GO TO HELL BIDEN!!!
