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.

“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...
