Well known lawyer Larry Klayman has filed a Federal lawsuit against Obama for his gun control related executive actions.

The suit cites things like unconstitutional abuses and overreach, separation of powers, exceeding the powers of the president, etc.

It's all about Obama sour grapes because Congress won't pass laws in his favor.

Maybe the Courts see it like that too !!!

Obama May Have Gone Too Far: He Just Got Blasted With A Major Lawsuit That Could Hurt


The first lawsuit has been filed challenging the constitutionality of President Barack Obama’s executive actions concerning gun control, which he announced earlier this month.

Conservative attorney Larry Klayman filed a suit in federal district court in Florida which accuses the president of seeking to circumvent the legislative process and invent new gun laws in violation of the Constitution’s separation of powers.

“The president states that he is doing so purely because he does not like the legislative decisions of the Congress,” argues Klayman, the founder of Freedom Watch.


Go Klayman !!

The judge will be bought off and the suit will be dismiss. That is how it always ends.

Can you sue a sitting POTUS?

I know you can impeach him but to personally sue him?

Didn't the US house of reps try and sue Obama in 2014?

The USG really hates their president eh?

The only thing is, it's an executive action and not an executive order. And really, all it does is say that the laws we have in place need to be enforced shout creating anything new; exactly something the NRA and right wing pundits have been saying needs to be done.

Well either the lawyer thinks he can make a point, or he's part of a well planned controlled opposition effort to set precedent in favor of Obama and make people automatically believe the "actions" are justified.

This ^^^^

Isn't that a major talking point of the right? "Just enforce the laws we have!" - said sternly and with vitriol. It's the Executive Branch's job to "execute" the laws created by Congress, sooooo...???

I still don't get how people go from what Obama actually said to completely freaking out about a mythical "gun grab!"

But that's just me.

"Just enforce the laws we have!"

Funny that's the same piece of advice Obama ignored when it came to immigration and securing the borders.

Where was the need for stricter back ground checks when Obama and his gang were giving weapons to Mexican drug cartels?

These guns have been found with "El Chapo" and have been murder weapons used in the murder of US law enforcement officials.

You know who really needs extensive background checks where guns are concerned?

Obama.

Good he should we are a Constitutional Republic not a Kingdom where he can issue decree's. I'm tired of that douche-bag just ignoring the Constitution, laws, and lawmakers (even though they seem to be idiots) and issuing decrees like he is some King or something.

Seems the big crime infested cities can't enforce much either.

Obama might put his foot down on crime and send in Federal DHS Occupation Forces !!!

Obama has been talking about grabbing guns since he was elected, and has never stopped talking about gun grabbing even for a moment in the last 7 plus years, but it is all mythical?

Obama and company, and all the states where he has friends helping him, like Colorado, (which backfired) and all those liberals helping him were booted right out the door and into the street was a serious gun grab attempt.

And there is Connecticut where Obama has even more worshipers implementing his gun grabbing schemes.

Hardly mythical. The real myth is that anyone who adores Obama can think any original thoughts for themselves.

Define "grabbing guns" - what does that mean to you?

Please cite your references with statements Obama has made and actions he has directed.

Do you still own guns? Have any been taken away from you?

I hope it doesnt stop with the gun EOs.

IMHO, ALL EO's should be declared unconstitutional. They have the force of law but completely circumvent Congress.

Ron Paul had said that should he get elected, he would issue one EO, making every previous EO null and void...

Its called incrementalism. And its not just Obama. Many of the Bernie Sanders/Obama type Democrats feel this way.

Would you say the same thing if Obama was writing executive orders limiting which women are allowed to have abortions performed?
