    Right! A bubble, created by government legislation, not one president's polices.

    Apparently Obama has plans for gun owners without the assistance of Congress after the fall election.

    Obama: “I’m working on gun control under the radar”
    Plans include enacting restrictions via executive order, bypassing Congress

    by Jack Minor

    While the Obama administration said it is committed to gun rights, a gun control advocate has spilled the beans, saying Obama is using stealth to work on firearms restrictions.

    The Washington Post did a story on Steve Croley, the White House gun control czar. Croley is considered to be an expert on regulation and tort law. His approach to gun control appears to be a regulatory one.

    According to the article, Jim and Sarah Brady visited Capital Hill on March 30, the 30th anniversary of the assassination attempt on Ronald Reagan; to push for a ban on "large magazines."

    The couple reportedly were meeting with press secretary, Jay Carney, when, according to Sarah Brady, the President came in. She said the President told her he wanted to talk about gun control and "fill us in that it was very much on his agenda."

    She went on to say Obama told her, "I just want you to know that we are working on it. We have to go through a few processes, but under the radar."

    The statement reinforces an article in the Huffington Post describing how the administration is exploring ways to bypass Congress and enact gun control through executive action.

    The Department of Justice reportedly is holding meetings discussing the White House's options for enacting regulations on its own or through adjoining agencies and departments. "Administration officials said talk of executive orders or agency action are among a host of options that President Barack Obama and his advisers are considering. "
    So what does gun control mean to a liberal democrat?

    Didn't Joe Biden take credit for constructing the Clinton assault weapons ban?

    That's a funny site. I may send it to Cobert. It might help him with material.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Typical response. No addressing the information, just attack the source. Joe, you are off your game today, maybe you need a break.

    No, but silliness that msirepresents something is. That's why the reference to Cobert. For a people who whine about bias a lot, you guys have a huge love for inaccurate bias. Even J misses the point. And the humor.

    Actually, Bush nationalized more industry than Obama has. TSA functions used to be private industry.

    Did you hate Bush for being a statist?

    If the United States is a true Democracy, then the President should not act without the consent of Congress. To override Congress with Executive Orders is not democracy, but dictatorship. If Congress and the President do not agree, then it is the will of the People that nothing should be done.

    im quite serious.
    obama may have 100% support now,
    when the democrats arent the majority anymore.
    but the first 2 years when they were,
    he took almost as much heat from democrats as republicans.
    he shouldve had his party ready to rule.
    ready to do all the things theyve been saying for years needed to be done.
    they couldve done everything they wanted to,
    instead all they really did was barely pass healthcare legislation,
    that may or may not even be legal.
    outstanding.
