After last week’s executive action against guns, many wonder what else President Obama may have on his agenda for gun control.
In a recent press briefing, White House press secretary Josh Earnest reminded reporters that the president still has a year left in office.
When a reporter asked Earnest if the president has now “maxed out” his influence over gun control through executive order, Earnest gave an unsettling yes-and-no reply.
Earnest first established that according to “the most recent analysis that has been done,” yes, the president has maxed out his executive influence.
But will that stop him? Has it ever stopped him?
Earnest continued, “That said, I wouldn’t rule out that at some point over the next 12 months that the president’s team goes back to take another look to see if there’s more that can’t be done. But I’ll tell you there’s nothing we’re keeping in reserve in terms of actions the president could take.”
So how can the President simultaneously have done as much as he can and be also capable of further action apparently unpredictable by analysis?
We’ll have to wait and see.
