Skip to comments.Obama: Some Gun Control Measures 'I Can Accomplish Through Executive Action'
Posted on 01/14/2013 9:45:07 AM PST by Nachum
"My understanding is the vice president's going to provide a range of steps that we can take to reduce gun violence," said Obama. "Some of them will require legislation, some of them I can accomplish through executive action. And so I will be reviewing those today, and as I said, I will speak in more detail to what we're going to go ahead and propose later in the week.

Thank goodness he didn’t sign legislation that would allow him to monitor phone calls made to known terrorists on foriegn soil! That would have made him a FASCIST!
Whew, we can thank goodness he is only over riding the congressional branch with dictatorial actions! He won, that means his is not a Fascist!
The problem with reloading is they will just go after that too with taxes and regulations. Then they will start busting people for hoarding, it’s already occurred in Fairbanks. Most reloaders I know have a bunch of powder, primers, and bullets they bought before they went sky high in price. Big Ears would call those supplies hoarding. Boy do we ever need political change in this country.
“My DEMOCRAT Congressman (Barrow) said on the radio this very morning that:
1. He refuses to vote for any new gun control legislation. 2. That,if proposed,it will not pass the House. 3. That he is not in the minority of Southern Democrats whom see it this way. 3. And... that any E.O. that Obama writes wont be worth the paper he writes it on. /Direct quote.

Excellent, I hope he and like minded congresspeople will stay the course.
There will be a big rush to be the first to disobey any illegal “order” coming from the SMIC (Sock Monkey In Chief)
I can’t think of anything Obama can do through executive action that an individual state is bound to obey.
How do you think the Federal Government has infested our local schools so pervasively? It was done by ‘guidelines,’ then rules, and finally regulations tacked on to monies ‘given’ to each district. If you don’t give your students meals, or tell us which student’s parents work for the government, or use this textbook criteria, we won’t give you these additional funds.
This permeates EVERY state’s budgets. DOTs (that got the 55MPH back when, remember?) That’s what got us ‘smog’ inspections, and on and on and on and on.
Dangle the ‘free’ money, tack on some requirement - voila, backdoor registration, confiscation....
Funding comes from Congress.
Yes, but each department and the Executive branch have funds (once approved by Congress) with which they basically do what they want.
There is no law against any amount of ammunition or components you can own. Not here in Texas anyway.
Wal Mart will just become the “company store” for welfare recipients if they do that. A lot of people have already started to avoid shopping there.
All components can be manufactured from scratch. It will only be a matter of time before the basement cottage industries spring up, nation wide. Even fully forming cases from raw cartridge brass is well within the ability of properly equipped small workshops. It’s only large scale production that is cost prohibitive. Instead of a few large industrial players with high volume, there will be tens of thousands of low volume small players. Meanwhile, funds that could have been otherwise put into the economy will be diverted to family defense purchases.
It already is. Why do you think Walmart supports Obama’s policies? They directly benefit from them.
The looney leftists need to look at Mexico’s ultra-strict gun laws - if they worked so well they wouldn’t have had over 100,000 murders in the last 6 years.
Gun control only punishes law-abiding citizens and these leftist idiots need to be pushed back. We need more guns in the hands of law-abiding Americans and not less - this is a true deterrent to criminals!
There was a group of nut bags in Fairbanks, shooting their mouths off, thought they had an army ready to cause upheaval in the land. They busted them for hoarding of ammo supplies. I thought to bust them for such nonsense, the feds are really reaching.
It really bothers me too; before it's over with; they'll be able to get anybody for something they are doing wrong in their eyes and we will live in a police state like Solzhenitsyn talked about concerning the Soviet Union.
Are politicians(aholes) assuming the laws will be followed/enforced as well as the existing laws covering:
#1 Ownership of guns in New York, Chicago and other liberal Hellholes?
#2 Use of “illegal” Drugs?
#3 “Illegal”entry into the United States of America?
#4 Driving a vehicle without the necessary license and insurances?
#5 Voting without being a “Legal” living citizen?
#6 On ad Infinitum
#7 On ad nauseam
When and where politicians cease to be worthy is when they seize control!
Do the politicians understand that sometimes the people wake up? Is there another Rosa Parks that will lock & load and say “Hell No!”?
That’s because the “weeper of the House” is a suck up kiss a$$ to Obama. How the hell did he get re-nominated by Republicans?
>> Withhold federal funding for what? About the only good that came out of the SCOTUS Obamacare ruling is that there must be a nexus between the federal funds withheld and the reason for withholding the funds.
Good point, well taken.
Then I recommend ol’ Blue Lips withhold BATF enforcement funding and close BATF offices in any state that allows evil guns and magazines within its borders.
I have called every division that is possible and told them that I am through with their company.
Likewise Glock, Sig, Benelli, FN, and a host of other guns made overseas at least in part.
He’ll be out to destroy the industry by breaking the supply chain. No grabbing necessary, just wreck resupply, regulate domestic production to death, and confiscate as convenient with minimal incidental impact.
He would be wise to review what happened in post-Katrina NOLA. Door to door confiscations started, but came to an abrupt halt. It wasn’t the civilians fighting back, it was - near as any outsider can tell - back rooms of LEO offices saying “stand down or bad things will commence”.
Of course has. They have moved on every one of their issues the same way. They planned for it and this was the time.
ie.... black markets
Barrow will be called in and be told to tow the Obama line.
“Barrow will be called in and be told to tow the Obama line.”
Barrow also voted against Obama/Boehner’s Fiscal Deal.
I’d normally agree with you, but in this case.... he may... be a decent guy. I’ll reserve judgement for now.
Hmm. I’d be interested in following up on that. Wonder if they were arrested because of their mouths, and then let go. I see no statute that they could be prosecuted on as far as hoarding. Now, threating to overthrow government or threating local people is different. They could be prosecuted for that. Curious...
I was walking around my neighborhood with my AR & my 45 on my hip while cruisers were driving around & not once did they imply anything that I was doing was out of line.
You know, it all goes to their heads, before ya know it they're killing 88 women and children in the name of the law.
We don't live anywhere near Fairbanks and I didn't pay much attention to the case, just heard about it. A local friend mentioned that one of the charges they got him on was hoarding and said heck they could bust anybody that reloads or shoots at a range for hoarding if they wanted to. Maybe someday, we'll wake up to find they have all kinds of laws on the books just to go after the people who oppose their politics. No like that hasn't happened all through history either.
