Additional Executive Actions' for Guns
 
It's far from over
Biden: 'The President Is Already Lining Up Some Additional Executive Actions' for Guns
Joe Biden says the president of the United States is preparing to take "executive actions" to deal with guns.

BuzzFeed reports:

Vice President Biden told White House allies in the gun control fight Thursday that President Obama will be announcing new executive actions on gun violence in the days after the Senate voted down a gun violence bill.

On a conference call with "stakeholders," Biden told gun control advocates that the fight is not over and that eventual action on gun control will come. Press were not invited to the conference call; a participant provided BuzzFeed with access.

"Look I know you're going to say that I'm just being an optimist and I'm trying to put a good face on this. But you know I've been around here a long time and we've already done, because of you, some really good things," Biden said. "Number one, the president is already lining up some additional executive actions he's going to be taking later this week."

After the Newtown shootings, Obama took a number of executive actions to expand research into gun violence and other areas favored by the gun control community. He took the actions without Congressional approval, leading to outrage by some conservatives.

Gun control measures failed in the Democratic-controlled Senate earlier this week.

UPDATE: And now Democratic majority leader Harry Reid has pulled the gun bill:

Gloating in victory, adolescent in defeat.

Par for the course.

But cosmo insists that the President is not trying to destroy the 2nd Amendment with executive orders....

Awesome. The elected representatives of the people you are supposed to serve rejected your bullshit, so you think it is appropriate to impose your will via Executive Order.

Nope. No God Complex evident here...

According to Politico it's 19 EO's. Per this it's more along the lines of enforcing current laws, which is fine and sharing federal databases with the states. But the WH is being silent about details. That Obama is going to use the campaign apparatus is to be activated in the effort.

Why does he need a campaign apparatus if he just going to use his pen?

I was just told by a Californian from the left, that the bill not passing violated representative govt. Now they're going to shove it down the people's throats usurping congress anyway.
