    Biden: Obama Considering 'Executive Order' to Deal With Guns | The Weekly Standard

    "The president is going to act," said Biden, giving some comments to the press before a meeting with victims of gun violence. "There are executives orders, there's executive action that can be taken. We haven't decided what that is yet. But we're compiling it all with the help of the attorney general and the rest of the cabinet members as well as legislative action that we believe is required."
    That's if the other ten or so anti-gun bills don't pass obama will make an executive order...

    Just a note, this would have been called "conspiracy theory" just a year ago.

    If he goes that route he's gonna have to do something minor.

    The pres ain't banning all guns via executive order. That would be called Revolution 2.0

    That damn constitution is such a pain in the ass anyway.

    Lets just use the executive order to pass law!

    That was my first thought.

    My second was "well, here we go; this is the point at which the decent citizenry begins to actively disobey the law"

    My third thought was "nah, this will never pass constitutional muster".


    Now I"m thinking, maybe I should go join the oath keepers....

    A year ago this would have been a conspiracy theory since there was no evidence to support it. No one cvould have predicted the mass outcry by the public for something like this. Being right one time in a million is not something to take pride in.

    Now that the Conservatives can dance around a mass murder and declare I told you Obama will do some anti-'gun' actions i guess some are taking smug satisfaction.

    I don't seem to recall a great deal of calls to join the peacekeepers, protect the Constitution or some such when BushII worked his magic with executive orders and his signings basically exempting him from the bills he signed.

    But this is now, I'd say lets wait until we see the whites of their eyes before going off half cocked.

    Last term several senators declared much the same thing after a 'special' meeting with the President.

    I think any 'gun-nut' who thinks nothing will be done isn't in this reality, there are Republican politicians calling for restrictions on some sales and some magazines.

    People want something done.

    But we shall see what actually is done.

    I agree with you. But it is a clear example of "never let a good crisis go to waste," as it is my understanding that automatic weapons didn't even play a part in the incident that's led us here.

    Obama had better be mighty careful with that... there's a lot of us who will flat refuse to obey an Executive Order than violates the Constitution.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm hoping he doesn't do something ill-considered that provokes something drastic... but that EO could easily create tens of thousands of Tim McVeigh's ready to declare armed revolt.

    I very very sincerely hope it does not come to that, but I will admit I'm beginning to worry.

    If you think there was a mass outcry for it, just wait until he tries to pull it off. Like the song says, you ain't seen nothin' yet.
