White House Readies 19 Executive Actions on Guns

According to Joe Biden, the White House is looking at 19 executive actions on guns.
The White House has identified 19 executive actions for President Barack Obama to move unilaterally on gun control, Vice President Joe Biden told a group of House Democrats on Monday, the administration’s first definitive statements about its response to last month’s mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
Later this week, Obama will formally announce his proposals to reduce gun violence, which are expected to include renewal of the assault weapons ban, universal background checks and prohibition of high-capacity magazine clips. But Biden, who has been leading Obama’s task force on the response, spent two hours briefing a small group of sympathetic House Democrats on the road ahead in the latest White House outreach to invested groups.

The focus on executive orders is the result of the White House and other Democrats acknowledging the political difficulty of enacting any new gun legislation, a topic Biden did not address in Monday’s meeting.
The executive actions could include giving the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention authority to conduct national research on guns, more aggressive enforcement of existing gun laws and pushing for wider sharing of existing gun databases among federal and state agencies, members of Congress in the meeting said.

    Well Jan… I can only say my son and I were at the gun shop C&G Sporting Goods in Panama City, FL.. The feeling of us in a conversation there is that there is no way any of us will give up our guns.. We bought them legally and all of us in the conversation have carry permits. When are people going to realize that B. Hussein Obama is not an American.. He is a Treasonous Traitor who has willfully violated his Oath of Office..

      I totally agree!

        Where are you located, Jason? I know the prices have shot up, but gun shows in OH have them readily available.

        Yea, ditto, “where?”
        Website please, if you could.

    All O-Crap wants to do is spend more money on unnecessary things, and play games with Americans rights. Impeach

    I don’t think he has a freaking clue as to the amount of resistance he will be facing. Unless Jesus Christ himself comes down and tells Americans to turn in their guns (not the anti-Christ), it simply isn’t gonna happen, no matter who he is and what name he signs on his stinking executive orders. And any elexcted representative that supports this BS should be tried for treason right next to BHO himself. Failure to uphold the Constitution as they swore they would…

    • I saw a video where Jesus himself revieled who the anti-Christ is. It IS Nobama!!!!!!!!

  • Yeah I read the English told the Scots they couldn’t have broadswords, the assault weapon at the time. I think they are still finding swords that were hidden form the English…

  • Git er done President Obama! Pry those guns out of their cold dead hands.

    • No John, you come get mine,eh? I’m retired career military, been in 3 wars. I heard that you are an advocate for civil war. Better watch WTF you ask for. Hooah!

      • No, I am an advocate for stronger gun laws so that no more kindergarten kids get slaughtered.

        • Screw Gen McCrystal, he’s trying to sell his book.BTW, we already have gun laws. I teach soldiers in competitive shooting.. An assault weapon shoots fully automatic. AR is semi-auto. It just looks scary to you. Go take an NRA class, they offer many.The Eddie Eagle class would be great for you. Now that I finished my career, McChrystal has no right to tell me what I can defend myself with, nor do you. I’m trained in weapons. We need to enforce the laws we already have. Do your research. I can send you to the DMZ Korea, and we can send you over the fence to see how you would like the North.You can stay a couple of years and get back to us, and let us know how you like it. BTW, you guys are asking for a civil war.We can rock and roll. I don’t think McChrystal would want to defend that,eh? He’s sworn to uphold the Constitution. If you want to come to my American Legion or VFW post and try to explain this insanity, just let me know and I’ll get the guys together,we’ll see how it goes.

        • Gen. McChrystal is an Obama supporter… Heard him say so while being interviewed by Sean Hannity!

    I’m concerned, Jan, that Obama and the Democrat party’s crusade against firearms in the face of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, and even the very method upon which this country was fought for and founded will result in a limiting of Presidential emergency powers (executive orders) and an eventual removal of the US Pres as a check in the system of Checks and Balances so carefully set up by the US Constitution. He’s attempting to overreach and infringe upon the rights of law abiding citizens while selling firearms (see “Fast and Furious” debacle) to criminals who enact these massacres. That the Attorney General can get away with basically treasonous activity (knowingly arming a known criminal element that is committing assaults against American citizens is a measure of treason) with impunity further demonstrates the absolute disregard for the safety of the American people that our “President” seems to have. Hitler, Mao, Stalin, Lenin, all disarmed their populations save for the military and the police. The people thought it was a good idea. Later, they decried that they had no way to fight back without being slain by those same military and police. Its a fine line, Jan, and while he’ll have to be very careful that his requests are reasonable…reasonable would be able to pass the House and the Senate. Sharing resources to track a firearm from a crime to the owner would be a good thing. It wouldn’t need an Executive Order. The question is, how many pages of Executive Order will there be? Will this be another ObamaCare where there’s a few good ideas and options available in 2000 pages of pointless complexity?

  • What part of “well regulated militia” do people not understand?

    • What part of Shall Not Be Infringed” don’t you understand,eh? Peoples rights,etc. I took an oath to defend it foreign or domestic. You really don’t want to push that part.

      The Founders wrote it so we can use them against a tyrannical govt, which is what we have now,McChrystal is one of them, so screw him. We have laws on the books, but not enforced Obama doesn’t want to fix the real problems, just makes it easier for gamgs and thugs to hurt or kill innocent law abiding citizens.Clinton Gun Ban didn’t workThere needs to be armed guards at schools. I can sign up for it. I’m trained. What do you think criminals are gonna do,eh? Look at Chicago, where Obama is from, he says it’s the model city for gun control. Look how many blacks are killing each other, they have the highest murder rate in the country and in Chicago’s history. Look at NYC – high crime rate. Criminals will not follow the law!!! I don’t intend to be a victim because some dumbass Obama said so. He wants to control the people Look at Hitler, Stalin, Saddam Hussein, Mao, they murdered millions. That’s why the Founders wrote the 2nd Amendment, they had served under King George. Read your history!

      Hitler,MARX,Stalin & Mao would be so proud of Obama.

      that forbid the carrying of arms . . . disarm only those who are
      neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes . . .
      Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the
      assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides,
      for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed
      man.” – Thomas Jefferson

      “A free people ought not only to be
      armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and
      ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might
      attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government.”
      – George Washington

      leaders and the people who voted for them need to read a world history
      book. And the Constitution, which none of them seem to care about
      anymore. Sad.

      • A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State,
        the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

        It can’t be more plain and simple than that. A ban on assault style weapons is NOT unconstitutional. It has been law before and will be law again. Maybe after 10 or 20 more massacres.

        • Semi Automatic rifles (I refuse to use the politically correct term, “assault weapon” just because it resembles a military rifle) are still arms and shall not be infringed. I don’t care if it was law before, it was unconstitutional then, and it’s unconstitutional now. No law is going to stop a criminal or psychopath from illegally obtaining one and shooting up the place.

    Hmm, I dont see anything about taking our guns. A little paranoid people? I feel safe knowing you all are packing looking for a reason to get all Rambo over nothing. So, maybe address the facts. I hope your aim is better than your perception. NO ONE wants your guns. Stand down troop. We just want the sick fools to stop killing kids, just like you do.

    • YET. They can’t confiscate until they know who has them and who doesn’t. It will be bittersweet proving you people wrong. Read the history on gun control, it doesn’t even work! Countless mass killings by tyrannical governments and a RISE of gun violence. THAT is why we believe so strongly in the 2nd Amendment. Do you REALLY believe more gun laws will stop criminals and psychopaths from getting guns and shooting places up??

  • well all I can say is, I’m glad I don’t own any “registered firearms”

  • President Obama cannot ban assault style weapons. It will take We The People and Congress to do that. Call your congressman. I did.

  • James Maxwell

    He might find out that his so called “Executive Orders” are only good for toilet paper
    should he ever make the mistake of comming after peoples guns there will be major
    problems that even the White House won’t be able to protect him from. The 2nd
    amendent is guranteed and there are those who will ignor the fools and cowards who
    make an attempt upon their weapons. Based upon the number of guns that have been
    sold as a result of the Socialist Democat Party and his actions. Guns and Ammo sales
    have jumped as never before. People are preparing for a civil war that oscummer and
    his minions are prepareing to launch upon Americans. He has done all he can short
    of actually picking up a weapon and firing it at someone to start one so far. But like
    most cowards he will hid in the bunker and send other to do his bidding.

    Texas may find itself filling up with refugees from New York and other insane liberal gun grabbing states.
