Obama Faces ‘Limited’ Options On Executive Action On Gun Violence

 

 

 

” Legal experts say the most significant changes being considered by Biden’s task force – including an assault weapons ban, a prohibition on high-capacity ammunition magazines and universal background checks for gun sales – would all require congressional action.

“His options are limited,” Adam Winkler, constitutional scholar at the UCLA School of Law, said by phone Friday. “He can seek to better enforce existing federal law, but he can’t act contrary to existing federal law.”

Winkler and others say Obama can install changes like new importation limits on weapons, tougher law-enforcement policies and greater cooperation between federal agencies sharing criminal and mental-health records – all without Congress’s blessing.

Biden and other administration officials are holding their cards very close to the vest, but past actions from the White House – combined with some of the vice president’s brief public comments from this week – lend some clues about what type of executive actions might be under consideration. “

At Least One Law Officer Still Takes His Oath Seriously 

KENTUCKY SHERIFF TO OBAMA: NO GUN CONTROL IN MY COUNTY

 

 

 

” Jackson County Kentucky Sheriff Denny Peyman is making it clear that no law that violates the Constitution will be upheld in his county.

This especially applies to new gun control edicts Obama & Co. are trying to push onto the American people.

Said Peyman: “My office will not comply with any federal action which violates the United States Constitution or the Kentucky Constitution which I swore uphold.” “

” The reality, as Cpl. Boston expressed, is that bad people will continue to do bad things by any means available.  The gunman at Virginia Tech, which is still the deadliest school shooting in American history, did not use an AR-15 – he used two commonly owned handguns: a 9mm Glock and a .22 caliber Walter P22.

In the end, those who believe we can stop the murderous resolve of deranged individuals via gun bans or regulations should consider what Anders Behring Breivik, the Norwegian mass murderer who gunned down 69 people at a youth summer camp in 2011, wrote in his 1,500 page manifesto on the subject of gun control:

IF they take away our AN-fertilizer, we will use AN from Ice packs!  If they take away our ice packs; we will hi-jack propane trucks and use them as secondary explosive charges!  If they take away our propane trucks; we will fight them with conventional weapons! If they ban the sale of weapons; we will smuggle in AK-47s from the Balkans and the Middle East!

They cannot prevent us, the European conservatives from eventually seizing political and military power.  We will succeed even if we have to create our very own improvised guns.

Laws won’t stop killers from killing – but a bullet to the head will. “

Read the finest essay on the history of the gun-banners , their thought-processes , their methods and their dishonesty in pursuit of their political agenda . Despite being repeatedly rebuffed by the facts , they continue to strive for the total elimination of privately held firearms . This piece , written by a self-avowed ” leftist gun enthusiast ” is one of the most cogent , balanced , succinct , yet thorough essays ever put forth on the subject of the ” assault ” weapons ban and the endless toying with the English language required to make it all come about it the first place . Remember , as a man of some note in recent times once said ” it depends on what your definition of “is” is ” . This piece should be read by EVERYONE …

[EDIT: Since this article was published, the Democratic party has officially added support of the assault weapon ban renewal to their party platform and Senator Feinstein has vowed to introduce it again in the upcoming session, hoping the Newtown massacre will help it push through. This bill WILL be debated and voted on, and I hope you can learn something about it here.]

Between Two Worlds

It’s not easy being a leftist who loves guns. It’s like being a Republican who listens to NPR or supports single payer health care. But being a leftist, I get exposed to all the liberal publications and media that invariably call for gun control every time someone does something stupid with one. Being a gun enthusiast, I also get exposed to the political Right’s oversimplification of those liberals as somehow lacking moral fiber or true appreciation of freedom. Rather than agreeing with both, I…

Guns For Dummies

 

 

 

” If we’re going to have a “national conversation” about banning “assault weapons” following Newtown — and it looks like we are — let’s at least know what we’re talking about and what we’re not talking about.

Adam Lanza used a Bushmaster AR-15 in the Newtown murders. Legally speaking, it’s an “assault weapon.” CNN is one of many media outlets calling for laws banning such “assault weapons” in the wake of the shooting. They should be available only in “war zones,” CNN’s Don Lemon asserted on Monday. “

 

 

 

 

 

 

New Scapegoat For School Massacre

 

” The finger of blame for Friday’s Sandy Hook school massacre has been firmly pointed at gun owners since the very first moments after the tragedy became public, but an additional scapegoat has now been identified – preppers.

“The mother of Adam Lanza, the gunman who killed 20 children and six adults in one of America’s worst ever school massacres, was a “survivalist” preparing for economic and social collapse, it has emerged,” reports the London Independent.

Lanza used three of his mother’s guns to carry out the shooting. Marsha Lanza underwent rigorous background checks and waiting periods before she was allowed to purchase the firearms.

It is now being implied that because Marsha Lanza was “self-reliant,” had readied herself for an “economic collapse,” and was proficient with firearms, that this rubbed off on her son and was a driving force behind the massacre.

The obvious inference being made is that anyone who buys storable food, owns firearms and is knowledgeable about societal and economic threats is potentially a mass murderer who needs to be watched very carefully, which is a meme that has already been making the rounds in recent months.

Because Marsha Lanza owned ten guns this means she somehow “stockpiled weapons” as part of her “paranoid” fantasies about doomsday.

It’s particularly cynical that Marsha Lanza’s lifestyle is being subtly blamed for the murder of 20 children given that she was the very first victim of Adam Lanza’s rampage.

Yahoo 7 News reports that, “Investigators are turning towards Nancy Lanza’s supposed identification as a survivalist,” as one of the contributing factors towards the shooting. “
