Today’s the day Vice-President Biden will present the recommendations of his Gun Control Task Force to President Barack Hussein Obama. However, these results appear to be worth about as much as one of Obama’s promises.
You see, gentle reader, Crazy Uncle Joe let the cat out of the bag, yesterday.
Politico.com has the story.
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.
“It was all focusing on enforcing existing law, administering things like improving the background database, things like that that do not involve a change in the law but enforcing and making sure that the present law is administered as well as possible,” said Rep. Bobby Scott (D-Va.).
The White House declined to comment on the details of what Obama will propose.
Remember what the Second Amendment to OUR Constitution says?
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.
Evidently, OUR Constitution doesn’t matter a hill of beans to the Manchurian President. Ladies and gentlemen, the Great One, Mark Levin, is right: We have an imperial president:
I’m not into imperial presidents who act imperial and speak imperial and Obama forgets there’s a Constitution. Yes, he keeps telling us he won reelection. Congratulations, but guess what? The Constitution wasn’t up for election, it’s not up for a referendum. He has to comply with it, too.
He was sent back to Washington, but he’s got a strict list of rules that he has to follow as president. When he gets up there and starts saying, if Congress doesn’t do this, I’m going to do this unilaterally, it violates separation of power a lot of the times. And this is a man pushing the edge of the envelope as far as i’m concerned, whether it’s the appointment clause, whether it’s his unilateral action on immigration, whether it’s trashing the commerce clause and the tax clauses under Obamacare. Now they’re talking about executive orders on the Second Amendment. They’ve issued regulations on First Amendment attacking religious liberty. This notion that he might be able to lift the debt ceiling, you know, unilaterally under the Fourteenth Amendment.
What the hell is this? He was elected president. Congratulations. This guy makes Richard Nixon look like a man who followed the law all the time. I think we have an imperial president, he sounds imperial, he’s arrogant as hell and I’m furious about this and I’m going to tell you why. We are a magnificent country. We don’t need to be turned upside down. We don’t need to run from crisis to crisis to crisis. He’s bankrupting this country.
President Obama seems determined to circumvent the system of checks and balances which Our Founding Fathers have so wisely put in place, in order to prevent exactly what our imperial president is attempting to do.
Therefore, one can say that the president’s proposed actions are no less than tyrannical.
What did our Founding Fathers have to say about Tyranny?
The liberties of our country, the freedoms of our civil Constitution are worth defending at all hazards; it is our duty to defend them against all attacks. We have received them as a fair inheritance from our worthy ancestors. They purchased them for us with toil and danger and expense of treasure and blood. It will bring a mark of everlasting infamy on the present generation – enlightened as it is – if we should suffer them to be wrested from us by violence without a struggle, or to be cheated out of them by the artifices of designing men. –Samuel Adams
Resistance to tyrants is obedience to God.- Thomas Jefferson
And, this final quote, which is amazingly prophetic:
Single acts of tyranny may be ascribed to the accidental opinion of a day; but a series of oppressions, begun at a distinguished period and pursued unalterably through every change of ministers, too plainly prove a deliberate, systematic plan of reducing [a people] to slavery.- Thomas Jefferson
Our Liberal friends, as President Reagan used to call them have been camouflaging the issue, calling it “Gun Safety”instead of Gun Control. They insist that any draconian measures taken by Obama is “for the good of the country”. They claim that they’re coming after our assault weapons, but they’re nebulous in describing exactly what an “assault weapon is”…because there is no such weapon class.
And, finally, they have decided that they are the final arbiter of what the Second Amendment means. They claim that it is referring foreign enemies, only, and therefore, since we have the finest Armed Forces in the world, American Citizens do not need to be armed. Or, that it is just meant to allow guns for hunting, only…and, the “State” is more than adequate to provide for the safety of American Citizens.
Right. Tell that to all of the murder victims in Chicago, Detroit, Memphis, etcetera, ad infinitum.
I have three answers to these claims which we have all heard from Liberals:
1. It’s not “Gun Safety” or “Gun Control”. It’s Gun Confiscation.
2. American citizens will decide what is is appropriate and safe for our families…and how to protect our children.
3. We are quite confident in the abilities of our Brightest and Best to protect us from our foreign enemies.
It is the domestic enemies who we seek to protect our families, friends and neighbors from.
