    Obama's a fan of gun control. He's trying to figure out how to use the power of his office to enact his gun control agenda.

    I'd be interested to see what kind of acrobatics would be required, seeing as how I thought the vast majority of Federal restrictions on guns originate in Congress.
    A lot of Federal gun control measures have been done through the executive branch.
    Both parties have done so to boot.

    Both parties have certainly abused the power of the Executive Branch for some time now. The fact is that many Presidents, R and D have for some time used the Executive Order to legislate. Congress has grown soft and has ceded too much of its power away. Congress was meant to be the most powerful body in our government, not the Executive Branch. However, just because both parties have abused the power and position does not mean that we shouldn't start cracking down on it. We need to restore the proper checks and balances and make it known that the President is really just supposed to be Congress's bitch and act as head of State. His power should be extremely regulated and restricted as he is in charge of executing the orders and laws from Congress.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Thanks for clearing that up for me.

    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Bush 1 did so with import restrictions and technically, the treasury department has the power to define what "sporting purposes" means with firearms.
