    What strawman, you actually made threads comparing paintball to combat and compared toys that fire paint to firearms.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Ah, so it's not the weapon but in fact the person using the weapon.

    The same could be said of a madman with a pistol, grenade, knife, or automobile.

    The quote is out of context.
    But I expect that Obam's EOs will have the exact same standing as any other PotUS's EOs.
    I may be wrong.

    Unlike you I fully understand what I quoted and it wasn't a blog, it was a law signed by Jefferson to squelch insurrections such as the one you and others are proposing. Jefferson had the support of public opinion on his side as will any president who has to put down a few extremists. So it might behoove you to remember that Timothy McVeigh is no hero.

    Um, McVeigh used a homemade bomb....Should we ban fertilizer, and diesel fuel now too?

    What does that mean? Not trying to be snarky here, but I asked a specific question....Do you have a specific answer?

    Will Obama's EO carry the force of law on the citizenry?

    When I own my own place one day I am getting my permit and buying a handgun for my own protection. If I ever work in an independent pharmacy I will have a gun there and a gun on me. We don't have a gun problem in the country, we have a problem with gun free zones (in my opinion) and a problem with psychopaths and evil people that will kill regardless of gun laws.
