"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." -- Theodore Roosevelt

Biden: Obama Eyeing 19 Executive Orders on Guns



*The above image is merely a plastic representation, and not the real Obama

And do you think this Constitution ignorant --oh, I'm sorry, this "living" Constitution advocate-- Obama Administration won't ignore Congress and push his fiats?

You know, that's more executive orders than bullets Obama wants in your guns' magazines...

From Politico:

"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 ["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 White House declined to comment on the details of what Obama will propose.

"But Biden did indicate that the remains of the Obama campaign apparatus may be activated in the effort.

"'He said that this has been a real focus on the policy and that the politics of this issue, that a strategy on the politics of the issue hasn’t been undertaken yet,' Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.) told POLITICO. 'He did remind us that the campaign infrastructure is still accessible.'

"Obama touched on his expected legislative guns agenda at his own news conference in the East Room on Monday, while stressing the power he has via executive order.

"'How we are gathering data, for example, on guns that fall into the hands of criminals, and how we track that more effectively — there may be some steps that we can take administratively as opposed through legislation,' Obama said. [emphasis mine]"

Huh. I wonder if that tracking the guns falling into criminals' hands will include the 1400+ weapons given to Mexican drug cartels by Holder's Justice Department?

My guess is no.
