Well, Obama warned everyone. Amazing, when language like that fits to use about a leader we elected. However we find ourselves with an elected
position that seems to believe he's a sovereign in his own right. Well..... We'll see how much of this survives court challenge. I imagine Obama will
be back to seeing his dreams torn asunder by the bang of a gavel in short order.
Hey, he loves the P.R. points in saying he's "doing something" though. Despite his own experts questioning the efficacy of any of it. Hell, we don't
let factual evidence stand in the way of an idea whose 'time has come' though right?
WASHINGTON (AP) — Striving to take action where Congress would not, the Obama administration announced new steps Thursday on gun control,
curbing the import of military surplus weapons and proposing to close a little-known loophole that lets felons and others circumvent background checks
by registering guns to corporations.
Four months after a gun control drive collapsed spectacularly in the Senate, President Barack Obama added two more executive actions to a list of 23
steps the White House determined Obama could take on his own to reduce gun violence. With the political world focused on Mideast tensions and looming
fiscal battles, the move signaled Obama's intent to show he hasn't lost sight of the cause he took up after 20 first graders and six adults were
gunned down last year in an elementary school in Newtown, Conn.
Then we do have a slight glimmer of hope....until he finds a way to circumvent the American system for this, too.
Still out of reach for Obama were the steps that gun control advocates and the administration's own review say could most effectively combat gun
violence in the U.S., like an assault weapons ban and fewer exceptions for background checks for individual sales. Only Congress can act on those
Although Obama and Biden have said the fight is not over, there is scant evidence that there is more support for gun control legislation than there
was in April, when efforts died in the Senate amid staunch opposition from the National Rifle Association and most Republican
For now, anyway, the will of the people as a WHOLE and as expressed through Congress is enough to stop the King from any royal decrees in those most
damaging areas. He still respects SOME limitation, although precious little.
'We have a Representative Republic, for as long as we can keep it'. Words similar to those were said outside the Constitutional Convention when one
famous participant was asked, upon leaving, what form of Government the men inside had created for the new nation. It was a true statement too, for as
long as we could keep it.
I think we've lost what we were entrusted to stay vigilant with and keep on top of. We've nearly lost it all by default and lack of effort to even try
changing the path.
