Obama issues Executive Orders on Gun Control
I'm not sure where the Constitution says that whenever Congress doesn't pass laws the president wants, the president can simply impose those laws by executive order. But that's the way the Obama regime is presenting these latest restrictions on gun rights:
The Obama administration unexpectedly announced two new gun control measures on Thursday, including one that would curb the import of military surplus weapons -- in a move that could anger collectors. Vice President Biden announced the new measures Thursday morning. The new rules, announced while Washington was otherwise focused on the crisis in Syria, took the form of executive actions, which President Obama added to the list of 23 steps the White House already determined the president could take on his own. The steps come after Congress declined to pass any gun control legislation earlier this year despite an aggressive White House push for action in the wake of the Newton, Conn., shooting massacre. With the political world focused on Mideast tensions and looming fiscal battles, the move signaled Obama's intent to show he hasn't lost sight of the issue.Obama once said about guns, "Sooner or later, we are going to get this right." It appears that his notion of "getting guns right" means only the government and crooks can have them.
