The lawlessness continues from the White House. The Obama Administration announced today that they will be taking Executive Actions on gun control measures.
Obama is going to once again BREAK THE LAW and push gun control measures without a vote from Congress.
President Barack Obama’s advisers are finalizing a proposal that would expand background checks on gun sales without congressional approval.
White House adviser Valerie Jarrett says the president has asked his team to complete a proposal and submit it for his review “in short order.” She says the recommendations will include measures to expand background checks.
Sorry Obama but it doesn’t work that way. You CANNOT create laws without Congress.
Obama is blatantly ignoring the will of the people and ignoring the LAW by trying to create new gun control laws without Congress.
The Constitution still does MEAN something in this country despite the left’s vocal opposition to it.
How are illegal laws that Obama puts into place going to be enforced exactly?
Who is going to actually OBEY Obama’s illegal laws?
And here’s some interesting analysis from Charles C. Cooke in discussing Obama’s previous talk about redefining certain firearms sales:
Even if we presume that the plan is both legal and workable — and, given how tightly both USC18§921 and USC18§922 are written, I am as skeptical as the president was a few hours ago — the benefits would be microscopic. Were Obama to change the regulations, the Post confirms, he would ensnare only “those dealers who sell at least 50 guns annually” — a tiny fraction of those who sell firearms on the private market. He would not be “closing the gun-show loophole”; he would not be “extending background checks to private sales”; and he would not be elongating the three-day period during which the government is able to search for disqualifying information. Nor, for that matter, would he be banning a single “assault” weapon, limiting even one magazine, or confiscating even a part of a gun. He’d be posturing, and uncomfortably at that.
Moreover, the clock is not in Obama’s favor here. The Administrative Procedure Act requires that the new “rule” be presented for notice and comment before becoming active. That means that, if Obama follows the law, he probably won’t get this done by the time he leaves office. And if he doesn’t? Well, then he risks being slapped down by a federal court. As for the proposal itself, a serious statutory challenge is all but inevitable.
Unless Obama has something else up his sleeve I wouldn’t worry too much about this. He’s playing to the cameras and to the ignorant.
We’ll have to wait and see what Obama’s ‘advisers’ come up with to be certain.
We’ll keep you posted.
