Politico reports this morning that the White House is preparing 19 separate Executive Orders on guns.
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.
The claim is that the proposals will focus on enforcement of existing laws. But at the same time the White House is set on proposing another ban, including scary-looking black rifles and “high-capacity” magazines, which the corrupt politicians claim the populace doesn’t need.
Additionally, this has me curious. It is the legislature’s constitutional duty to pass laws, but yet, everyone is urging the White House to “do as much by executive order as possible.” This ultimately means that the White House knows its gun-grabbing agenda will not pass the legislature, and likely will be challenged as unconstitutional in the courts. So it’s being encouraged to do everything it can to subvert the system and circumvent the Constitution.
Texas Republican Rep. Steve Stockman threatened Monday afternoon that he would file articles of impeachment against President Barack Obama if he institutes gun control measures with an executive order.
“I will seek to thwart this action by any means necessary, including but not limited to eliminating funding for implementation, defunding the White House, and even filing articles of impeachment,” Stockman said in a statement.
I wonder if the GOP will actually have the balls to do it.
