Sometimes the set up of our government, that allows gridlock and delays, can work in our favor. I remember in the U.K. and Australia, after their big shooting massacres in 96 (Dunblane and Port Arthur), those governments moved with breath-taking speed to outlaw the various firearms. The gun-grabbers were able to strike when the iron was more than hot it was scorching.

A couple days after Sandy Barbara Boxer (I believe it was Boxer) said in an interview that the AWB could become law if they could vote on it before the week was over. And she was right.

President Obama has, according to VP Biden, promised to take executive action if Congress does not. Meaning he will issue an executive order to ban guns. Which, if I'm not mistaken, is a massive infringement on the constitution. By our own president.

This is not 13 years ago. This is very different. Obama promised to "fundamentally change" this nation.

I've just read something about this. We're not sure what is going on but this is getting serious.

I have to wonder how much he CAN do. Executive Orders are not immune to the scrutiny of the Supreme Court, which has been pro-gun of late.

From everything that I've read it appears to me that Biden's mouth ran away from him again. Not like he hasn't done that before.

One problem at a time. Let's deal with the Legislative branch and then see what our dear Leader wants to do.

Yes. One problem at a time. I understand the desire to yell and scream and bounce off the walls but that doesn't accomplish all that much. And I really don't care that Obama promised to "fundamentally change the country". Words, words and more words from a politician.

Lets all take a breath and deal with one thing at a time.

If only all states would do something like this. The metaphorical equivalent to an adult screaming over a toddler not to touch the hot stove.
