Biden: Obama Considering 'Executive Order' to Deal With Guns
"The president is going to act," said Biden, giving some comments to the press before a meeting with victims of gun violence. "There are executives orders, there's 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 the rest of the cabinet members as well as legislative action that we believe is required."
Biden said that this is a moral issue and that "it's critically important that we act."
Biden talked also about taking responsible action. "As the president said, if you're actions result in only saving one life, they're worth taking. But I'm convinced we can affect the well-being of millions of Americans and take thousands of people out of harm's way if we act responsibly."
Biden, as he himself noted, helped write the Brady bill.
Eric Holder was scheduled to be at the meeting that's currently taking place at the White House.

When you consider the number of innocent lives taken by tyranical governments, that statement cuts in both directions...
“All red state governors should do like they did with Obamacare and order state and local law enforcement not to assist. “
I agree with this approach, but will the governors do this? Have any spoken up yet? Any signs at all that they are even paying attention?
Well, good luck with that, Joe dipstick and Hussein.
They’re going to have a field day there when the Olympics come to town in 2016.
I meant “Do you feel lucky, punk?”
Look for a LOT of FRpers to freely “use” a certain finger.
If that's true, then we are headed for war.
The Constitution: so much toilet paper to Obamugabe.
God Bless them, because Rio will be hosting not only the 2016 olympics, but also the World Socer Cup, and this year, the Catholic World Youth Day gatherings.
I hope you are right. I want to be one of the first to Splain it to them Dixie Style.
I believe it is more of a 'violating the Constitution' that we are dealing with...
As I said so often, in a predicting manner, this could very well be a “flashpoint” to a possibl future civil war.
WHITE HOUSE THREATENS 'EXECUTIVE ORDERS' ON GUNS
I was listening to the Art Bell show a few months ago and the guest on was some guy from the Merlin Project. What really caught my ear is that he said Obama’s chart is very similar to MLK, Jr.’s. It was posted online during the radio show and it showed his chart ending in early 2013. What could be the reason for it? It is becoming more clear as time goes by.
I agree. Unfortunately; too many knee-jerk emotional thinkers lap this up. By this logic; the speed limit everywhere should be no more than 20 mph. This would drastically reduce auto-accident deaths. It may be completely inefficient, unrealistic, and crippling to the economy, but it would save at least one life so it would be "worth it".
With all due respect,
Well i would like to think we could manage a resolution short of the Framers ultimate insurance policy.
No, they arm the criminals via fast & furious,and thats ok
I heard Walmart refused to meet with Plugs Biden. Good for Walmart.
What if the actions of ObamaCare result in the death of one life, is it okay to scrap ObamaCare?
This administration is a menace.
I believe you meant "think" rather than "feel", as do the socialists with their bleeding heart syndrome.
Ditto that. It is time...
“Gun Control Kills People”
It also kills many liberal congresscritters careers who try to pretend to be conservative at home while running for re-election and voting otherwise.
Let them stand by and let this happen without lifting a finger to stop it. The *hit is going to hit the fan! And they had better be ready for it. This is one issue that voters don’t waver on!
“As the president said, if you’re actions result in only saving one life, they’re worth taking.”
So Obama is threatening to shut down Planned Parenthood? I didn’t think so!
Someone in Congress needs to step up and say publicly "Americans do not need to comply with this" and cite the Constitutional reasons why.
I believed you.
Check out Drudge’s RED headline! I’m sure a tech savvy FReeper will be posting it, soon!
If he does, it will go to the Supreme Court.
This time our side better have the goods on Roberts and others so that they will be damned if they do and damned if they don’t.
FReepers please don’t bother with “that’s beneath us” and “we don’t act that way.” Not doing what it takes to stop these people is what has this country going down the drain.
I definitely prefer pressure on Roberts etc. to a Civil War.
I was speaking about this and his EOs with my dear departed mother in 2010 right before she died. She died heartbroken this country had elected this man. She asked me about what would happen when he came for the guns. I told her “I’m not going to give them up under any circumstance”......She said, “I wouldn’t either.”
She was 86 when she died. Lived a Christian life, never smoke or drank, never lied and obeyed all the laws until her death. For her to endorse what I told her I’d do is pretty condemning of what evil we are confronted with today.
This is going to get ugly, very ugly.
Will the military stand with Zero in the event of a Civil War? Hopefully not.
Emperor Gluteus Cerebrum.
I wonder if all the GOP governors are going to comply with this?
If you read the personal writings of the day from WWII, Hitler and his minions were similarly (and pleasantly) surprised to discover that Westerners simply will keep bending over backwards as long as they can.
For us, everyone knows that this war is going to be an ugly, vicious, bloody war... and one side is doing everything it can to bear the burdens and ignore the incoming tyranny. When the fight eventually comes (no telling what event will play the role of Poland), it will not be pleasant.
Over 1 million abortions in 3 years so I guess we don't need to hold our breath on shutting down PP.
Too much of a money maker.
I note that when things like that would be said previously in FR, the post would be pulled. Now, these are becoming common comments that stay up.
Can you imagine the hissy fit the libs would have if a Republican president issued an Executive Order banning abortion?
Or an Executive Order lowering the top income tax rate to 10 per cent?
Or an Executive Order allowing oil and gas drilling in National Parks?
“Check out the Drudge Report! Drudge must have ate his Wheaties this morning, hes not pulling any punches!!”
Ouch. But he needs to put a picture of Obama next to Hitler and Stalin.
Guess it depends on who your supporters are...
