Vice President Joe Biden revealed that President Barack Obama might use an executive order to deal with guns.
“The president is going to act,” said Biden, giving some comments to the press before a meeting with victims of gun violence. “There are executives orders, there’s executive action that can be taken. We haven’t decided what that is yet. But we’re compiling it all with the help of the attorney general and the rest of the cabinet members as well as legislative action that we believe is required.”
Biden said that this is a moral issue and that “it’s critically important that we act.”
Biden talked also about taking responsible action. “As the president said, if you’re actions result in only saving one life, they’re worth taking. But I’m convinced we can affect the well-being of millions of americans and take thousands of people out of harm’s way if we act responsibly.”
Biden, as he himself noted, helped write the Brady bill.
Eric Holder was scheduled to be at the meeting that’s currently take place at the White House.
We elect to office, and continually allow to fester within, individuals who do not serve the American people. You want a prime example, take a look at my state of California; a state that is utterly broken and in financial ruin, yet the Californian people are so absolutely stupid they continue to reelect the same two moronic Senators (they have been allowed to fester in office for 20 years!!!). Since 9/11 we have continually allowed individuals like Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Obama, and their administrations, to strip and circumvent Congress of their power, to erode our Constitution and our rights, destroy our industry and international competitiveness, lead us into and keep us in unnecessary wars… of course Obama serves special interests – he sure as hell does not serve you or me.
And here we are again. Its at times like this where Obama and his ilk prey upon high emotion to promote their agenda (regarding guns, Obama has been after the Second Amendment for years – look it up). It matters not that most gun-related crime is gang-related where “gangstas” shoot each other. It matters not that, considering that there is over 300 million firearms in my country, comparatively, there is very little gun violence amongst legal gun owners of all types. It matters not that most criminals do not possess legal firearms. It matters not that the Newtown shooter had ILLEGAL firearms (just like most criminals). It matters not… and then some. I could go on and on.
