Obama: Certain Gun Control Measures Can Be Accomplished Via Executive Order

January 14, 2013 by  

At a press conference today President Barack Obama reiterated his willingness to use executive action to implement stricter gun laws.


“My understanding is the vice president’s going to provide a range of steps that we can take to reduce gun violence,” said Obama. “Some of them will require legislation, some of them I can accomplish through executive action. And so I will be reviewing those today, and as I said, I will speak in more detail to what we’re going to go ahead and propose later in the week. But I’m confident that there are some steps that we can take that don’t require legislation and that are within my authority as President, and where you get a step that, has the opportunity to reduce the possibility of gun violence, then I want to go ahead and take it.”

    This idiot in the White House is violating the Constitution and it is one of only TWO things he can do without the Congress…. (declaring we are at war, and upholding the Constitution of the United States.!) He is NOT upholding the Constitution!!! Why doesn’t someone stand up for our country and stop this unlawful man!!

    • J hutson

      He cant declare war, he can authorize military action and deployment for up to 90 days, afterward he must withdraw or get approval from congress

    • Chet

      Because nobody in Congress or the senate has the balls to stand up to this prick.

  • Dennis HE Wiggins

    Beverley – you, too, are wrong! The POTUS CANNOT DECLARE WAR! Americans are TOTALLY lost when it comes to the Constitution! That’s what is wrong with the country today!

    • Billy bob Shotgun

      I don’t believe they mean war as in iraq, they mean war as in going against the constitution, they will fight for it.

  • Jerry Kincaid

    Executive Order” are not laws only the congress can make a law we the people do not ave to obey Executive Order”

    • RenaVA

      Yes, Executive Orders are law. The only thing is that Obama knows how to use EO and people haven’t figured out that he and his regime do not abide by the U.S. Constitution.

      • Ramon Rodriguez

        All laws in contradiction of The Constitution of The United States are null.
        If an EO is in direct opposition of anything written in our Constitution the Administrator is in violation of his Oath.
        Even Martial law is in direct opposition of our Constitution, yet We The People remain dormant.

    This President is the worse by far and fails to realize that we Legal gun owners will not give up our rights or our guns to a corrupt and tyrannical government. The supreme court has already ruled on the definition of the 2nd Amendment the right of the Private citizen to bare arms. And as stated that right shall not be infringed upon. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is also treading dangerously on the 2nd Amendment. Liberals fail to understand. Should these two tyrants try to infringe on our rights plan on seeing civil disobediance followed by civil war. Semi auto rifles including the scary black guns only made up for 324 out of the 11,400 plus deaths by guns in 2011. Molon Labe!

  • Betty White

    This crazy man is starting a civil war in this country!!!! The people will not let him tread on our rights!!!!

    • Diane B.

      Betty, I believe he’s hoping for it so that he can declare martial law….he, however, like King George in England before him (a couple hundred years ago), underestimates the heart and courage of the “American People”!!!

    • gunner

      He’s not crazy – he’s sly as a fox. It has been his intention his entire life to bring this country down.

  • david garland

    it is wrong hitler was a very bad man look at what he done we the people must stop this crazy man in the white house at all cost we will not go quite so easy it will be a very very bloody i will stand up to battle house to house please stop this madness dont tread on me i will fight to the death i do not want a war but i will not run from it please dont abuse the second amendent please stop this ban on our freedom

  • Glyde Carter

    I am hopeing and praying that the simple answer to this problem is to Impeach this would be dictator and stop a civil war that he and the like minded members of society are unarmed by this method a few more crack pots like the Chicago bunch are willing to take advantage of fire power to please them self and apease this would be dictator the best action we as americans is to protest for his impeachment in a peaceful manner and if fired up on by the gun grabbers be willing to return fire fight fire with fire if these unamericans can not abide by our second adm.and the constutition.We must take a stand before our legs and hands are tied by a so called president with his hen house orders,he has lied and a liar will steel.Impeachment is an option and we have the legal right at this point in time

  • Jess

    Texas is getting ready to fight to impeach him. As states are beginning to get themselves locked down, I’m gaining more and more faith that we can cut the head off of the beast and get him OUT! Hope this faith isn’t misplaced. Time will tell-who can you trust anymore?

  • TIME

    Dear People,

    OUR NEO Faciest in Charge said so, afterall every single EO penned just prove’s 100% that we do in fact have a ” FACIEST REGIME in the City State of the District of Columbia.”

    “Democide” PEOPLE ~ 299 Million people have been Killed by Government from 1900 – 1999. Oddly each nation that instuted such measures ~ had set in place Firm GUN CONTROL LAWS just prior to the mass slaughter!

    Yet ~ this criminal Regime from DC wants to take your GUNS, if you think that 300 Million more added to that DEMOCIDE number of 299 Million will not follow by 2020 AD, then you have a serious mental disorder.

    I strongly feel that each state should take back their Soverign status, as in toss out the TRASH and start over.

    I am a person who has no interest in hate nor to hurt anyone, But the TIME has come to stand for FREEDOM ~ or will you stand at the egde of your own grave and allow MORE

    Peace and Love, Shalom.

  • Billy bob Shotgun

    We shall see whats comes out of this. If this ahole was going to do anything drstic, he would have alrady done it. he ain’t the sharpest pencil in the box. I still think this is over higher taxes. If he starts a civil war, who will pay for all the people receiving welfare. I think this idiot is looking for more money. His exec ordrs can instill higher taxes, however, he can’t take the guns. all [expletive deleted]

  • Yertost

    The “Reputrids” aren’t challenging B. O.’s extra-constitutional acts because they’re ok with it.

  • david p.

    since he is not an American , does not even realize the marines and other combat soldiers still use bayonets, even know how many states that are in this country. what makes anybody think that he has a clue about American spirit , desire for freedom ,or some of our willingness to die for our country,or to make others die for our country and its people. our government better go back to the history books and reread what happened the last time someone tried to take our weapons and freedom. did not turn out the way they expected either. history has a way of repeating itself for those that don’t learn from it

      Our colonial Patriots had the courage to stand up against that which was wrong .
      At Concord and Lexington.
      All it takes is for one to stand and be heard and that will speak as loud as the
      Shot that was heard around the world.
      If that does not work I don’t think ” We The People ”
      Are going to stand still.~~!!
      Change will come.>>>>~~!!


  • Brad Pettit

    thank God cencoership doesn’t exhist oh that’s right they took the ability to criticize away as well when they took free speech so ZI can’t truly say what I would like to many explisatives for the language police.

  • Ramon Rodriguez

    Oh my Friends and Patriots ,,,sadly I have to say this also,,,, Censorship is coming to us soon.
    The Media is already 80 per cent controlled by the government .
    This internet freedom we have will soon expire also, they will make almost impossible for America to communicate, it is just a matter of time.

  • Jim3031

    Executive orders are valid only if they are strictly within the scope of laws passed by the legislature, i.e. the legislation has a clause that allows the executive to enforce some part of it by implementing the actions he sees fit. Also, the order cannot be repugnant to the supreme law which is the constitution. In other words, any order that could be construed as infringing on the right of the people to keep and bear arms would be a null and void order. Of course, the kicker is in how one “construes” something. Our elected officials and the SCOTUS often seem to “construe” things in direct opposition to normal English usage, and that is a problem that will have to be addressed by “We the People” at some point in the near future.
