President Obama Will Use Executive Order for Some Gun Control
In his press conference today, President Obama said that he is confident that he can use executive order to deal with some gun control. According to the Weekly Standard:
"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."
So here we go. The 2nd Amendment is under attack and we now wait to see what powers the President thinks he has. This kind of talk only makes Rep. Steve Toth's bill more important. Will the American people stand-up for the Constitution? Time will tell.
