    Idk very much about EOs. Let me Google that question and see.
    Well, wikipedia says so.
    Executive order - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The wiki cites this document by the congressional research service:

    Executive Orders and Proclamations - Wikisource, the free online library

    That's about all the effort I am willing to expend on it. I hope that helps.
    I may be wrong.

    Curious don't you think?
    The article did not say that the govt was "threatening to take the guns."
    Nor did Biden threaten to take the guns.

    Still a number of people are quite certain that was what happened. A curious and notable phenomenom, imho.
    I may be wrong.

    major politicians have called for taking guns

    what is the government and who speaks for it? the ranking senator from the most populous state in the country?

    The calls have been very limited in scope, and really much that hasn't been law before.

    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.

    I suppose if we're willing to leave the context of the thread--Obama's executive order--the meaning of a number of statements change.

    Please consider my previous statements to have specified the context of an executive order from Obama even though they did not.
    I may be wrong.

    Don't be overly deceived by polls. The mass outcry is being answered by a gazillion guns being sold.

    Well, now that means it's going happen.

    To turn against a corrupt, out-of-control government is not to turn against the country. In fact, I would have to say that to take the side of such a government is to turn against the country.
