Biden: Obama Considering ´Executive
Order´ to Deal With Guns

Weekly Standard, by Daniel Halper

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/9/2013 12:08:42 PM

Vice President Joe Biden revealed that President Barack Obama might use an executive order to deal with guns. "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." Biden said that this is a moral issue and that "it´s

Comments:
No!! We know that charlatan isn´t "considering" it. He wants to do it. We knew something like this would happen from the vile 0bama. And by the time any lawsuit would wind it´s way through the court we will be doomed. I don´t know how much more of this I can take.

Government, at all levels, is signally its belief that total collapse is on the horizon. When that happens, they want the only weapons to be theirs. This has nothing to do with Sandy Hook or any other person or incident. It has everything to do with our government telling us subtly that a major upheaval in society is imminent.

It´s so cute when ivory tower DC types think they can reverse the tides and stop the sunrise.

I wonder if the attorney general i.e. the top law enforcement officer will point out that the 2nd Amendment is still in force and still unambiguous, unlike those emanations and penumbras that gave us Roe v Wade?

It takes a special kind of nerve for the sleazy, backstabbing Biden to talk about morality but he´s no different from the rest of his fellow hypocrites.

My friend Robb is typically more cynical, and a little more conspiratorial than me regarding the government.

He told me two weeks ago that the "president" would use executive orders to pass gun legislation. I didn´t believe him.

i hope he does soon - we need to get this into the judicial system asap and put a stop to this nonsense before one of the good guys on the Supreme Court retires and Obama´s swing vote gets appointed. Even at that, it may be a close call, but at least we still have a chance. The Supremes are usually very committed to precedent and I would hope a good one would be set here.
This would be an interesting test on several levels - 2nd Amendment, separation of powers. If adults are running the country it should fail on both counts - the question is whether or not we have competent leadership anywhere.

When the government takes an action that make most of its citizens outlaws, then it´s time to replace the government by any means possible.

Remember, first they take the guns,
then they inflate the currency till it´s worthless,

A student of law -- all the more a Constitutional scholar -- would know damned well that an Executive Order is not sufficient to amend the Constitution. If O´Biteme try this, it will essentially be declaring the Constitution void, which will officially announce a resumption of the Civil War.

Instead of a fight to free the blacks, this time will be a fight to enslave the people.

Excuse second post, please.

FTA: "As the president said, if you´re actions result in only saving one life, they´re worth taking.

That is the all-time most stupid liberal platitude. NO! If you´re actions result in only saving one life, they´re NOT worth taking.

The above comment by zippy quoted by biden is a ridiculous cliché. How about a ban on cars, booze, baseball bats, fireplace pokers, bicycles, flights of stairs, 2 X 4s, glue, airplanes, and so on? After all if those actions result in only saving one life . . . .

Jeez!

Based on that logic, I propose an immediate and total ban on ALL transportation,---automobile, truck, and public.

There are over 40,000 fatalities annually!

By threatening a gun control Executive Order, you have to wonder if the White House is already signaling that whatever they are proposing does not have a chance to pass the Congress.

There has got to be a lot of Democrats now in Congress from swing districts who know that they will not be re-electable if they support a big liberal Democrat ban on just about all modern semi-automatic handguns and rifles and a $200.00 tax per firearm on all the many millions of semi-automatic firearms already out there. It´s hard to believe that the Obama Administration and the liberal Democrats would be able to get such a gun control bill through the Republican controlled House of Representatives.

#21 there was a segment on this morning news on the problems local police are having with acquiring ammunition. I am sure that part of it is due to the government´s vast purchases, but that was not mentioned. It will not surprise me if there is an emergency order to highly limit the sale of ammunition as there is not enough for the police.

2nd amendment says "The right of the people shall not be infringed-" says nothing about the Executive making all manner of orders to limit the rights of citizens. If Øbama can use executive orders to take our inalienable or God given, gun rights, there will be no limit to the rights he can take. The Constitution will, in that moment, die!

It appears to me they may want to ignite a war believing they can take out a third to half of us and then subdue the rest. They know they can´t get a law passed neutering the 2nd amendmant - So they force the hand of the citizen to cross the Rubicon.

There are approximately 125 million gun owners in the country, with approximately 300 million guns. The American military has been reduced to approximately 2 million, and the combined police forces of every municipality, county, and state would probably number around 7 to 10 million. I would guess that less than half of them would take up arms against their fellow Americans. Even if they did, they would be outnumbered 10 to one. Even with vastly superior firepower, those are not odds I would like to fight against.

Gun owners who are sitting on the fence won´t stay there long once they see their families, friends and neighbors being hauled off by jack-booted thugs with badges.

Luke 11:21 "When a strong man fully armed guards his own homestead, his possessions are undisturbed." It´s a shame pastors & priests have quit teaching the Bible like my pastor did for 50+ years. He faithfully taught from Greek & Hebrew, taught many lessons of history & during the military in WWII was a friend of Barry Goldwater´s which tells you he was very conservative - too bad we are missing those in our Republic congregations today.

An Executive Order would probably relate to ATF implementation of existing regulations, such as FFL holders. I read elsewhere that more than 100,000 firearms allegedly went missing from gun dealers last year. Probably annual ATF inventory audits are in the works with loss of of FFL if guns are unaccounted for and not reported missing.

So exactly what will the executive order do? Most likely, he will order the FBI to devote no time to respond to background checks so that no new gun permits can be issued. He´ll sic the EPA on the gun and ammo manufacturers so that they have to expend all their profits in legal fees, with the DOJ hoping the bankrupt them. He will allow the DOJ to sue the gun manufacturers, etc. He cannot possibly get a gun bill through Congress in the next two years, but he can use the feds and the public employee union members to do his bidding.

Earlier this week on Boston’s WRKO-AM’s The Howie Carr Show, conservative commentator Ann Coulter shocked some conservatives when she said she is making 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney her favorite for the 2016 Republican contest. Last month in an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation, Romney himself ruled out the possibility of a 2016 run and said he was instead focused on who to get behind in that contest. Coulter, however, wishes otherwise. “Well, don´t tell him but I´m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest -- flying out, kidnapping him and depriving him of sleep, food and

The number of major federal regulations issued in the first five years of the Obama administration was 153.2% higher than during the first five years of the Bush administration, according to data from the Heritage Foundation. “In the first five years of President Obama’s Administration, 157 major federal regulations were issued. By comparison, only 62 major federal regulations were issued during the first five years of the George W. Bush Administration,” according to Heritage’s report, Red Tape Rising: Five Years of Regulatory Expansion. A major federal regulation is defined as “any rule that the Administrator of the Office of Information

How do you get from 5 million Obamacare enrollees to 7.1 million Obamacare enrollees in two weeks? You start the applications yourself. Health and Human Services was mailing out letters notifying certain Americans that they had already started a healthcare coverage application on their behalf. HHS had started the applications for them. The Shark Tank reported: News of the HHS letter was first mentioned by a listener of the popular “Daybreak with Drew Steele” Show on Fox 92.5, which is out of Fort Myers, Florida. After his radio show concluded, another listener emailed Steele telling him about receiving the same

Finally, someone has come up with a way to settle the debate over climate change: Put the people on the wrong side of the argument in cages. A writer for the website Gawker recently penned a self-described “rant” on the pressing need to arrest, charge, and imprison people who “deny” global warming. In fairness, Adam Weinstein doesn’t want mass arrests. (Besides, in a country where only 44 percent of Americans say there is “solid evidence” of global warming and it’s mostly due to human activity, you can’t round up every dissenter.) Fact-checking scientists are spared. So is “the man on the

More than a dozen Republican lawmakers are pushing the Environmental Protection Agency to reconsider asserting regulatory authority over streams and wetlands amid intense backlash from farm groups over the agency´s proposed water rule. In a letter Thursday, the GOP senators faulted the EPA for announcing a proposed rule last week before the government´s peer-reviewed scientific assessment was fully complete. They are calling on the government to withdraw the rule or give the public six months to review it, rather than the three months being provided. The senators´ move puts them among several groups -- from farmers and land developers to

U.S. employers added jobs at a solid pace in March in the latest sign that the economy is rebounding from a weak stretch brought on by a harsh winter. The Labor Department says employers added 192,000 jobs, slightly below February´s total of 197,000. Employers also added a combined 37,000 more jobs in February and January than previously estimated. The unemployment rate was unchanged at 6.7 percent. But a half-million Americans started looking for work last month, and most of them found jobs. The increase in job-seekers is a sign that they are more optimistic about their prospects. March´s job gain

In his opening statement during highly anticipated testimony Wednesday on Benghazi, former CIA deputy director Michael Morell claimed to be an intelligence professional who was willing to lay out the facts -- no matter how damaging. "I take very seriously the allegations about how the CIA in general and about how I in particular handled the analysis and the talking points," Morell told the House Intelligence Committee, in his first public testimony on the Benghazi attacks. "The ethical code under which intelligence officers carry out their responsibilities calls for total objectivity." But Morell´s own testimony would appear to undercut that

SAN DIEGO – Hillary Clinton cancelled her upcoming visit to San Diego in the midst of a planned protest. Clinton will be the keynote speaker for the 17th Annual Western Healthcare Leadership Academy on April 11. She was originally going to deliver the speech in person, but will now be seen by satellite. The three day event will be being held at the San Diego Convention Center with 700 people expected to attend.

Immigration reform advocates are fond of citing broad support for their cause. But in fact the coalition behind the Senate Gang of Eight comprehensive reform bill is fragile and loosely cobbled together. How could Big Labor and the Chamber of Commerce and the tech world and Big Agriculture all unite behind one bill? Very tentatively. It wouldn´t take much to break the coalition apart. And if that happens, the effort to enact comprehensive immigration reform could blow up, not just for the moment, but for some time to come. And there are signs that is exactly what is occurring now.

Imagine going to work one day only to be, in effect, fired -- not because of anything you did or didn’t do at your job, but because of something you did in your personal life. Something religious. Or maybe, something political.(snip)That’s exactly what happened to Brendan Eich, a highly-respected tech guru in Silicon Valley and co-founder of Mozilla Corporation, after he was appointed CEO in late March. In less than a week, he was forced out of this position for no reason other than that he had a made a $1000 contribution to the Prop 8 initiative in 2008. His

The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors. In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors. The lack of oversight “exposes the department to significant financial risk,” the auditor said. “It creates conditions conducive to fraud, as corrupt individuals may attempt

Muslim moms and dads in Dearborn, Mich. are upset after students received flyers promoting an Easter Egg hunt at a local Presbyterian church. The parents say the egg hunt violates the U.S. Constitution. The Muslims told the Detroit Free-Press that they were concerned about the religious implications of Cherry Hill Presbyterian Church’s “Eggstravaganza!” They were also troubled by images of a bunny rabbit. “It really bothered my two kids,” parent Majed Moughni, told the newspaper. “My son was like, ‘Dad, I really don’t feel comfortable getting these flyers, telling me to go to church.

In a statement released Thursday, Mozilla -- which makes the Firefox Web browser -- apologized for not reacting more quickly to the controversy surrounding Eich, who made a 2008 donation supporting California´s plan on gay marriage, The Guardian reports. "We know why people are hurt and angry, and they are right: it´s because we haven´t stayed true to ourselves," said Mozilla executive chairwoman Mitchell Baker in a statement.

A 54-year-old white man has been left barely clinging to life after he was brutally beaten by a group of black men when he got out of his car to check on a young black boy he accidentally hit. Steve Utash, from suburban Roseville, was beaten into a coma Wednesday by an angry mob in a poverty-stricken Detroit neighborhood after David Harris, 10, ran in front of his truck on a busy street, but police insist the incident was not racially motivated. The gang also stole his wallet before leaving him for dead. Utash is in extremely critical

President Barack Obama contended that the government did not “make a hard sell” for Obamacare, despite his administration spending nearly $700 million to promote the law. “We didn’t make a hard sell,” Obama said in the Rose Garden on Tuesday, praising the 7.1 million sign ups for the Affordable Care Act. “We didn’t have billions of dollars of commercials like some critics did.” However, last July the Associated Press reported that Obamacare’s marketing campaign would cost at least $684 million. Taxpayer funding went to all 50 states in efforts to encourage people to enroll, including nearly $28 million for the

Attorney General Eric Holder disputed a Government Accountability Office report on his use of Justice Department airplanes for personal trips, saying it overstated the number of trips he took and failed to recognize that some trips were job-related. "My staff keeps telling me to take it easy, you know, well, this is one that gets me," Holder told Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing. "There was this notion that we´ve taken -- I think it was described as hundreds of personal trips. That was wrong. GAO counted flights, not round trips. And we looked at it

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

It´s the end of an era: David Letterman announced Thursday that he´s retiring from CBS´ "Late Show" sometime next year. He made that announcement during the taping of his program this afternoon. The late-night talk show host, who will celebrate his 67th birthday next week, made his debut on the "Late Show" on Aug. 30, 1993. Letterman got his television start in 1978 on the CBS variety series "Mary," starring Mary Tyler Moore. Months later, he paid his first visit to "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson" -- marking the first of 22 appearances. He also guest-hosted "Tonight" numerous times.

According to a report via BuzzFeed’s Evan McMorris-Santoro, President Barack Obama requested the opportunity to address the nation in prime time on the major broadcast networks on Tuesday night to announce that the Affordable Care Act had reached 7 million enrollees. Those networks did not, however, accommodate the White House’s request. “Three sources familiar with the request confirmed the White House asked for the prime time slot in their effort both to emphasize a bright moment following the challenging roll out and, more important, to try to reintroduce the country to a law that remains unpopular,”
