Executive Order: Gun Control

Should gun control be subject to Executive Orders instead of going through Congress?

http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/biden-obama-might-use-executive-order-deal-guns_694984.html

"The president is going to act," said Biden, giving some comments to the press before a meeting with victims of gun violence. "There are executive orders, there's executive action that can be taken. We haven't decided what that is yet. But we're compiling it all with the help of the attorney general and the rest of the cabinet members as well as legislative action that we believe is required."

Biden said that this is a moral issue and that "it's critically important that we act."

Biden talked also about taking responsible action. "As the president said, if your actions result in only saving one life, they're worth taking. But I'm convinced we can affect the well-being of millions of Americans and take thousands of people out of harm's way if we act responsibly."

Biden, as he himself noted, helped write the Brady bill.

Eric Holder was scheduled to be at the meeting that's currently taking place at the White House.

I agree with the notion the congress can't find their asses with both hands. I agree with a guy on some news report "you do not need a assault rifle to shoot deer". I think those weapons need to stay AT a gun range no way you can have it any other place.

But do you think these rules should be made by executive order or by congressional vote?

All the anti gun morons are doing is causing gun owners to run out and buy as many firearms and high capacity clips they can get their hands on...now thanks to all of this hoopla there are more guns out there than ever. Many manufacturersc custom builders are reporting through the roof sells and insane waiting lists. The custom builder I go through to
Get most of my AKs, has a 14 month waiting list now before they can even start on your customization, before all of this they would start on your order as soon as you cleared a background check. Good job anti gun nuts!!!

 There needs to be some kind of control and limits on the types of guns that are allowed and strict background checks so the nuts who think they NEED their guns ( in a desperate nutty kind of way) will be detected and prevented from going postal in the future. There are too many scared paranoid yahoos out there, just itching to shoot someone.It doesn't matter to me who writes it or signs it but somebody has to have the guts and the principles to do something.

I am tired of hearing about this and tired of allowing the people to walk the streets free who probably need to be in a psychiatric hospital instead of stockpiling weapons and ammo.

that is a very small amount oof people the majority want gun control over assault rifles and the a like. Maybe you should pay attention instead of like your gun nut moron buddies going out buying a lot of shit they do not need nor will they ever need.

No one needs alcohol, yet drunk drivers kill hundreds if not thousands of people every year. Lets make alcohol illegal.

I own several AK-47s, all legally. Do I "need" them? Nope but I'm also responsible, took all the proper classes, keep all of my firearms in gun safes. Responsible gun owners should be able to own the firearms they wish to own.

 I agree with executive orders if they help the masses....I dont for one.

As for any legislative law...they can ALWAYS be revoked.
