    Obama: We’re working on gun control “under the radar”

    The Department of Justice reportedly is holding meetings discussing the White House’s options for enacting regulations on its own or through adjoining agencies and departments. “Administration officials said talk of executive orders or agency action are among a host of options that President Barack Obama and his advisers are considering. “

    That also matches up with Obama’s approach on … nearly everything, it seems. Regulatory adventurism has been a hallmark of every other Obama priority, whether it be health care, financial-services reform, labor policy, and now on gun control. When his agenda is too radical for Congress, Obama simply plans to bypass Congress and rule by decree.

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    This doesn't surprise me. Over the past century Congress has handed more and more and more power over to the Executive branch, and each President has used more and more and more of that power.

    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.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

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

    Well, if he plans an Executive Order, maybe it's time a President's right to Executive Orders gets challenged -- and most certainly it would be. Rock on, Obama, rock on. (Scarey, actually.)

    I'll tip my hat to the new Constitution, take a bow for the new Revolution...

    And I'll get on my knees and pray.... we don't get fooled again!

    An EO on gun control would probably be the worst EO ever. And there have been some pretty bad ones.

    More silly hyperbole. Call me shocked.

    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.

    Time to cling to our Bibles and Guns:

    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
