Well, the first news out of Texas today was the introduction of their Firearms Protection Act.
This is, of course, based on their 10th amendment rights. The 10th comes before the 2nd.
I have no doubt he will try to introduce impeachment if Obama goes forward. The problem would be, would it go anywhere?
Possibly. A lot of dems have guns, too. A lot more people believe in their rights than progressives give credit. Dems are the leading rank in the
party, the progressives and extreme leftists are still in the minority, but tend to have the biggest mouths. That's why you hear about them the
My proof? Simple. The words came from Obama himself, today. He just can't get enough support. He meant dems, though he pointed out Republicans. How
would he know yet what Republicans feel? He never asks them anything. His own cobstituents, however....
See the above link, and check out the one about Wyoming. Obama has no support except a few raging loudmouth libs. He knows this, hence, the only
option he has is an EO.

I am a progressive and believe in mild gun regulation, like the bare minimum such as banning automatic weapons and armor piercing rounds. The gun
regulation being proposed by some liberals goes way beyond mild gun control. It bans sport rifles, bans guns that accept more than 10 round
magazines, bans the magazines that accept more than 10 rounds, requires gun registration and even ammo registration, stricter p2p selling of guns,
even attacks antiques and relics. It is quite abominal if you ask me.
Yes I am a progressive but mostly in terms of financial affairs, NOT gun regulation, gay marriage, abortion, etc.
Too many people confuse all around liberals and progressives with statism, but as we have seen statism itself is the problem, and many conservatives
themselves are statists. I am NOT for statism as THAT is the road to tyranny, if not tyranny itself.
I find it disturbing that Obama has made gun regulation a top topic and neglects other much more serious affairs such as cutting down on the enormous
military industrial complex, pushing for some kind of ufo disclosure, trying to help improve welfare services, trying to reign wall street with its
outsourcing frenzy, trying to stop israeli aggression, etc. There are so many more serious issues to focus on YET obama is focusing on gradually
disarming the populace. SOMEONE is pushing hit to do so it appears, just like someone wants the economy to collapse. It is not me that wants all
these terrible things.
Hitler and Stalin went after the greedy capitalists, not the average poor citizen. Obama goes after the poor and middle class. Big difference. And
to fight a left revolution you need weapons. Many anarchists and militant leftists put more stress on gun acquisition than conservatives do. Think
