Reuters: Even without Congress, Obama could act to restrict guns

(Reuters) - Unburdened by re-election worries and empowered by law to act without Congress, U.S. President Barack Obama could take action to improve background checks on gun buyers, ban certain gun imports and bolster oversight of dealers.

Prospects for gun control legislation intensified in the wake of the school massacre in Newtown, Connecticut, as more pro-gun rights lawmakers said on Monday they were open to the possibility while Obama and three cabinet members met at the White House to discuss the subject.

Having just won a second four-year term, Obama does not need to fear alienating voters who favor gun rights and he could press ahead without lawmakers on fronts where federal law enables executive action.

Question: Where in the Constitution can Reuters find the authority for the Obamanoide to act as a dictator and remove our right to bear arms?

Apparently, Reuters doesn't believe that the U.S. Congress has the power to impeach and remove him for denying the people of their God given right to defend ourselves from the tyranny of government..

Enumerated Powers

Can someone point out to me where in the Constitution, the executive branch is delegated the power to regulate firearms?

Who do they think will enforce it?

The employees of Reuters? Piers Morgan?

I would strongly advise Obama to remember what happened to Caligula.

Who owns Reuters?

Same people who want to take our guns away, depopulate the planet, and owners of the banking system. One guess?

Apparently, “empowered by

Apparently, “empowered by law” equates to the will of one man, whose annunciation is sufficient for constitutional backing. Constitutionally speaking, this is a grievous error. Reality speaking, this lines up perfectly with the concatenation of usurp powers presidents have commandeered throughout the years, transforming the presidency into an all-powerful emperor.
