Biden: W.H. readies 19 executive actions on guns

On is more research by the anti-gun CDC — gun ownership is a disease, you know.

“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.” [Politico]

  1. The White House should start with releasing all the particulars on its failed Fast and Furious program headed by the DOJ and the AFT, before trying any other actions sure to likewise fail.

  2. “The right to bear arms shall not be infringed”
    What part of that do they not understand?

  3. You missed the part about the pre-emptory right of the president in all matters constitutional. They had a show of listening to a selected audience and are now proceeding with predetermined actions. I’d bet they had this list and were just waiting for a crisis to exploit.

  4. Bob,
    Where does one find this pre-emptive right explained (for all matters constitutional)? The only references I can find relative to the Constitution have to do with war powers. Is the Community Organizer in Chief stretching this application to infringement of the 2nd Amendment (i.e., that the US is at war with citizens who own firearms)? Or is your comment deep sarcasm?

  5. Tee hee hee — if the CDC actually studies firearms injuries and deaths, and reports accurately, we’re going to be reminded that most firearms exchanges, including lethal ones, involve only a few shots. That most firearms deaths are related to gang criminal activity. That very few firearms deaths and injuries involve rifles and even fewer are related to high-capacity magazines on rifles. That very few guns used in crimes were obtained lawfully in the first place. That CCW holders fire their guns very rarely but show them fairly often. The suicide numbers will be ugly, I’m afraid.
    IF CDC reports accurately…
    Enforcing current laws about trying to get a gun by lying about disqualifying elements could make some sense.

  6. BTW, the element in the (hah) Affordable Care Act seems to be about preventing health care providers from harassing patients and families with questions about firearms or storing that data. Some pediatricians in particular had gone from asking reasonable safety-related questions to intimidating families about guns in homes.

  7. The current administration “believes” only in expedience. Constitutional Law is important only as it helps them acquire, increase, maintain, and exercise power over the electorate. When it empowers their opponents, it is anathema to them.
    For example, the First Amendment empowers them to banish all religion-tinged words and actions from anything that the government has a hand in, but it gets in the way when the people try to invoke the ‘free exercise’ clause.
    The Second Amendment is BAAD! It give the hoi polloi the idea that they can have guns which they might use to resist the tyranny of government agents.

  8. Assad and Mubarak attempted to take away the freedom of the people with dictatorial actions. Obama may just join these presidents. Obama may be ousted by civil war.

  9. So far, the most far-reaching proposals for executive action are to enforce existing laws (there’s a thought) and to gather more data. If those are the top two of 19 actions, the other 17 must be really pitiful.
    But like Feinstein’s lists of guns to ban and guns to protect, I can’t find a list of the 19 possible executive actions.
