The text offered seems to say that there will be legislative action "as well." Which, imho, means something different than if the legislative action fails we will resort to EOs.
See, to me, in my mind, "as well" means something more equivalent to "also", "too", and "in addition."
but we have already determined that I have some reading comprehension issues. So take that assessment with a grain or two of salt.
"There are executives orders..."
imho, this means that executive orders exist. ymmv
"...there's executive action that can be taken."
imho this means that there are deeds which can be done by the PotUS in re the matter at hand. ymmv
" We haven't decided what that is yet. "
imho, this means that they have not picked a course of action. ymmv
" But we're compiling it all..."
They are gathering a list of options. ymmv
"...with the help of the attorney general and the rest of the cabinet members..."
The AG and members of the cabinet are helping with the list of options. ymmv
"...as well as legislative action that we believe is required."[/I][/COLOR]
They think that changes to current laws or the creation of new laws is required to be a part of the appropriate course of action. ymmv
So, as you can see, I don't see anything akin to a threat to confiscate firearms in that statement.
I am usually not the first to subscribe to creative or dynamic interpretations of words and language.
My reluctance to go with the newer more exciting interpretation may be what's keeping me from being able to find the part where Biden threatens to confiscate firearms.
So, if you could just underline the part of the quote where the threat to confiscate firearms occurs, perhaps that would help me see the light. Then I could get a charge out of feeling that fear and drama like some other people seem to.
