Joe Biden says the president of the United States is preparing to take "executive actions" to deal with guns.
Vice President Biden told White House allies in the gun control fight Thursday that President Obama will be announcing new executive actions on gun violence in the days after the Senate voted down a gun violence bill.

Very interesting! Any idea what exactly he intends to go after through these executive actions? Aren't executive actions just like a glorified to do list? What good will that do? Just more pandering to the anti gun crowd for political gain perhaps?

He sounded so pissed yesterday after the bill failed to pass. What a sore loser. He loses so he tries to find a way to fix the game in his favor. Why even use the democratic process if you're just going to dictate the laws yourself? What an ass.
.Elegant in the plan but to many Democrats wanted to keep their jobs so it never got the wings to fly off the floor..
“It just means something the executive branch does. The use of any of a number of tools in the executive branch’s toolbox,” said one administration official.
Executive actions can include “regulation, enforcement, statements of policy…and numerous other things,” the official continued.
So, basically, it’s anything the President does that doesn’t modify a law.
He cannot modify law using Executive Actions.
