After Vice President Joe Biden's task force met and gave their recommendations to President Obama, the White House has identified 19 executive orders that the President can take on gun control. The White House is claiming that these measures are only to strengthen and enforce existing laws already on the books, but the question remains as to why shouldn't those current laws just simply be enforced, why is an executive order needed?
While Obama and company are claiming that these 19 executive orders are only focusing on existing laws, we most certainly have our doubts as to the truth about that. While the President campaigned for his position he said an Obama administration would be the most transparent one in history, that has not proven to be the case at all. They have in fact proven to be the most secretive one in history. In light of the behavior we have seen from this corrupt administration for the last 4 years we can almost assure you there is an executive order or two, or three amongst the 19 that would be in direct violation of the Second Amendment.
VP Joe Biden's task force came up with these recommendations for the president after supposedly talking with numerous groups of individuals and organizations. We know that is a crock because the president of the NRA has said his presence at one of those meeting was little more than symbolic as Vice President Biden simply listened to NRA President David Keene and moved on to the next item on his list.
We are of the opinion that this VP task force was nothing more than a show when they actually had their agenda mapped out already. Read more on the 19 executive orders from the White House below via Politico.com.
The White House has identified 19 executive actions for President Barack Obama to move unilaterally on gun control, Vice President Joe Biden told a group of House Democrats on Monday, the administrationâ€™s first definitive statements about its response to last monthâ€™s mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
Later this week, Obama will formally announce his proposals to reduce gun violence, which are expected to include renewal of the assault weapons ban, universal background checks and prohibition of high-capacity magazine clips. But Biden, who has been leading Obamaâ€™s task force on the response, spent two hours briefing a small group of sympathetic House Democrats on the road ahead in the latest White House outreach to invested groups.
The focus on executive orders is the result of the White House and other Democrats acknowledging the political difficulty of enacting any new gun legislation, a topic Biden did not address in Mondayâ€™s meeting.
The executive actions could include giving the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention authority to conduct national research on guns, more aggressive enforcement of existing gun laws and pushing for wider sharing of existing gun databases among federal and state agencies, members of Congress in the meeting said.
â€œIt was all focusing on enforcing existing law, administering things like improving the background database, things like that that do not involve a change in the law but enforcing and making sure that the present law is administered as well as possible,â€ said Rep. Bobby Scott (D-Va.).
The White House declined to comment on the details of what Obama will propose.
Isn't that nice, the White House doesn't want to give any "official" comment on that those executive orders are or exactly what Obama will propose. What they are probably working on is how to present this to the country without igniting a huge firestorm. Good luck.
