Obama: Some Gun Control Measures 'I Can Accomplish Through Executive Action' - VIDEO

"I'm confident that there are some steps that we can take that don't require legislation and that are within my authority as president."


The Weekly Standard: President Obama said he'd take "executive action" to deal with guns at his press conference today:

"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. But I'm confident that there are some steps that we can take that don't require legislation and that are within my authority as president, and where you get a step that, has the opportunity to reduce the possibility of gun violence, then i want to go ahead and take it."

shooting up neighborhoods outside the US "hood".

I'm talking about his drones of course.

He can decide to pick off anybody and their family in Pakistan - just like a local gangster can pick off anybody and the family of a rival gang, by means of ultimate drive-by.

And NOBODY gets to stop HIS murderous rampage.

What do you want to bet Obama

What do you want to bet Obama authorizes Royal Canadian Police and Military and Mexican Police and Military to enter the US in a supporting role to help American Pigs confiscate the firearms of Americans?

With 19 executive orders (Wow that is a lot) this has to be a part of it.

I guarantee Obama is working in coordination with foreign police and foreign military to affect this dramatic change in our history.

This approach will fail, it will utterly fail.

As in the past, foreign flags on police and military uniforms operating of US soil will receive a particularly brutal response from patriotic Americans.

Worse than Bush...

Bush, Cheney and their neocon henchmen were demons. But Obama is set to make them look like choir boys.

The Look of Defeat

I don't know about you, but he is not coming across as his usual arrogant, over-confident narcissistic self. To me he looks as if he already knows his efforts to ban guns and probably to confiscate them will be going nowhere. He looks defeated and castrated (to use Freudian terms). That's not to say we should be letting our guard down. We must always stay vigilant when there's a tyrant like this in power.

Oh king, may I keep my gun?



If, then, Mr. President

If there are gun control measures that Obama can accomplish through executive action, then why didn't he do it before he allowed Sandy Hook to happen? The blood of those 20 children is therefore on Obama's hands and his hands alone. This tyrant's hands are already stained with the blood of countless children he murdered in foreign lands with his predator drones.

Obama has nothing it's a ploy to accept a compromise in congress

All he has are some interstate commerce issues with ammo, to make it harder and some technical directives.

If its part of the Bill of Rights it's a big no for Obama and he knows it.

What that means is he can not ban guns or models.

Can he EO that ammunition not be made with lead - YEP and that's a maybe

my prediction is universal

my prediction is universal background checks and national registration database is what he is going to try to implement with executive orders.

“Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once it’s realized that our liberties and wealth are in jeopardy.”
― Ron Paul

he can try

but it will be a big no can do with executive order. It doesn't fit within the scope of EO, which the SCOTUS already ruled can ONLY be technical in nature. In other words, it would already have to be in the system and he could make technical changes. Definately not in the system for universal back ground checks on a national level and no chance for national registration.

Constitution advocate GOA not invited.

Wonder why? It's because their position is one of principle and awareness that our rights are not to be "infringed" upon.


The night is far spent, the day is at hand.
And those who have not heard shall understand.



Obama: "I don't believe in the Constitution and feel that I...

have the authority to usurp inalienable rights at my discretion."


he swears an oath to uphold the Constitution and I'm thinking that might be a form of treason and cause for impeachment if he says he doesn't believe in the Constitution.

Relax joeinmo. dwalters is making-up a false quote.

I thought it was the bad guys that made up "facts".

If we invent false quotes, how are we any better?

If he didn't actually say that, you can't say its a quote. And

if he DID say that - you need to give a source.

"Can't" suggests inability...

For instance, I can't touch my nose with my elbow.

And you CAN touch your nose to your elbow, if facist

government storm-troopers (that we are supposed to be better than) ALSO break the rules of ethics and fairness and does you the favor of breaking your upper arm.

As the good guys we are supposed to stay within those rules of ethics and fairness, or we can't expect our strong armed opponents to.

In an ethical and fair forum - you have the inability to make up

a quote, with any legitimacy or credibility.
