Biden Says Obama to Use “Executive Action” to Restrict Second Amendment

On Wednesday during a press conference with attorney general Eric Holder, vice president Joe Biden said president Obama is considering taking executive action to restrict the Second Amendment rights of the American people.

“The president is going to act,” said Biden. “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.”

“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.”

In other words, according to the Obama administration and the Justice Department, if trashing the Constitution saves one life, it is worth it.

Issuing an executive action, unlike an executive order, does not modify a law. Executive actions, a Obama administration office told NBC News in October, concern regulation, enforcement, statements of policy and numerous other things.

Obama, unlike his predecessors, is not expanding executive power to meet the demands of an external crisis. Instead, he is counteracting a new pattern of partisan behavior ” nonstop congressional obstruction ” with a new, partisan pattern of his own, Andrew Romano and Daniel Klaidman wrote for Newsweek prior to the election.

White House communications director Dan Pfeiffer told Newsweek Obama will work with Congress where we can ” and then be willing to act where they wont.

Obama has already used executive action to instruct the ATF to conficate guns. In September, Obamas Justice Department gave the ARF authority to seize and administratively forfeit property involved in controlled-substance abuses. In other words, the agency now has the power to seize firearms from people not convicted of a crime or even charged with a crime.

In July, as the Fast and Furious scandal unfolded, Obamas Justice Department devised new rules requiring border-state gun dealers to report large purchases of firearms made by individual buyers over short periods of time.

I personally think it is important to host material such as removed reports that show that even FOX News once repoted on Israeli spy rings following the 9.11 hijackers before September 11th Or publishing the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was removed from their site once they enacted some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power.
