Executive Actions On Gun Control

The White House confirmed that President Obama was preparing a series of executive actions on gun control to match his recent passion on the issue after the latest mass shooting in Oregon.

“It’s a high priority and will continue to be until we start to see more progress on this issue in this town,” White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest told reporters today at the press briefing.

Earnest said he would “quibble” with anyone who criticized the president for not voicing any specific gun control proposals during his press conference, asserting that the White House was working behind the scenes for more executive actions on guns.

“I can tell you that they’re not stumped, they’re continuing to review the law that’s on the books and continuing to consult with legal authorities but also others who may have ideas about what steps that can be taken to keep guns out of the hands of criminals,” Earnest said.

He admitted, however that he had no details for what the White House was working on, but asserted that the process was a “scrub” that was “ongoing.”

Earnest welcomed Hillary Clinton’s own gun control proposals announced this morning, but admitted that he hadn’t seen the full details of the proposal.

He also pointedly criticized the “gun show loophole” for allowing criminals and people with mental problems to buy weapons, blaming organizations like the National Rifle Association for blocking action in Congress on the issue.

  2. The Second Amendment….”It Is An Individual American Right…….!”

    Dear Mr.Obama, Acting President,

    As you know Sir, your speech regarding the Second Amendment Supporters after the Oregon Shootings was the most “Obnoxious and Politicizing Speech Event” I have ever Heard from a Sitting President or in your case, Acting President in my lifetime since I was born in May of 1961. To Politicized Gun Owners and Gun Rights Organizations as Evil Americans was the most Distasteful or Inept choice of words that I have ever heard from you as Acting President…instead of consoling the grieving Oregonians you choose to “Chastized” Gun Owners like “Criminals of the Second Amendment” like me….! As a Firearms Owner. NRA Member and Second Amendment Supporter, I do not “Condone Criminal Acts” of Violence of any kind with firearms or other weapons to hurt, injure or murder “American Citizens Engaging” in “Peaceful Events” while they are in a Public Domain such as, in classroom at a college or public school systems or anywhere in the public venues such as public buses, city streets, malls or in their personal homes….! As you know from being from Illinois, the failed “Strict Gun Control Enacted” in your City of Chicago, Illinois has failed the city and its citizens of which 216 Chicago Citizens were killed by “Strict Gun Control System Failures Enacted” by the city council…all these Deaths occurred by end of July 2015……! Sir, There are “No New Laws or Sets New of Laws” that would of made a difference or avoided this shooting in Oregon or the other shootings on your watch, as you know Mr Obama all these shooting have two things in common, they are as follows- [“All These Shooters Had Passed the Mandatory Federal Background Checks and most of all these “shooters” had a Mental Illness to help Act out their Violence on Peaceful Human Beings in Peaceful Settings….!”]

    As A Veteran SR Airman of the USAF Security Forces 1980 {my C-in-C, President Ronald Wilson Reagan} and a Retired Civilian Police Officer;

    Sir, with all do respect if there are laws passed today that would curtail, suspend, confiscation through registration laws or any unjust laws forcing me into giving up my Second Amendment Individual Right in anyway, I will not register nor surrender or give up my firearms voluntary or involuntary, as I do not believe it’s the government’s right to know how many firearms I do own nor is it prudent to tell, give or share what kind of firearms that I own with you so that may be taken away from me by a group of individuals who enjoy Secret Service or Armed Security protections, but who would decry my having the Same Protection- A Crime. You Sir or Ma’am have overstepped a line in a domain that is not yours to take… I am A USAF Security Forces Veteran of Four Years during the Cold War, and I will not have someone who proclaims that being a Second Amendment Supporter and NRA Member, that the evilness of an inanimate metal object, but yet, who uses a Armed Secret Service, to tell me that I may not have one….!
    Sir, I am not your servant, subject, peasant nor are you my King, I am a man who serve this country and my communities as a LEO, a man who keeps you free, I am the flesh and blood of this Nation, I am a Man who fought for this Country same as my Dad, a Chosin Marine in the frozen chosin reservoir battle of Korea, my Dad’s Brothers in WW2, middle-one landed in Normandy and Lt Cmdr XO, who served on the USS Wilkes-Barre and my Dad’s Father, a Lt. in the Army Air Corps during WW1 and my Cousin who served in the Vietnam War, 1967……I am an American and a Cherokee by one/third blood…You will not tell to disarm or register my Firearms because of the actions of some “Evil Man or Woman”….I will not register or be disarmed to suit the Fear that has been established by the Media and or with your misinformation campaign against the American Second Amendment, Its Supporters and its Citizens…!

    We the People of America, deserved better than you…!

  3. “Pro Second Amendment American”

    In the late 1700’s, at the beginning of our birth as a Nation, our Founding Fathers of our young great nation debated certain inalienable rights, one leading figure eloquently stated quite sternly the following: “Firearms stand next in importance to the constitution itself. They are “the American people’s liberty teeth and keystone under independence” … From the hour the Pilgrims landed in what is now Massachusetts to the present day America, events, occurrences and tendencies prove that to ensure peace, security and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable … the very atmosphere of firearms anywhere restrains evil interference – they deserve a place of honor with all that’s good.” Those words were spoken by our first president, George Washington…..!

    Those who in the “Democratic Leadership” question the original intent of the Second Amendment and “who desperately” want to place an undue restrictive burden on American Citizens’ rights to bear arms, “who unfortunately” forget that criminals will always have the ability to “find weapons and procure weapons” that can injure and kill. The Second Amendment has been part of our constitutional fabric for centuries and it remains in place to protect the innocent – not the criminals….! There is no question that criminals prefer victims in gun free zones whom are defenseless and unarmed. Our system of “CONSTITUTIONAL LAWS” should not detrimentally impact the ability of law-abiding citizens to protect themselves no matter where they are as in schools, colleges, out in public venues or in the safety of their homes….!

    The Second Amendment is not a Political Football to be “Politicalized”; It Is a Cornerstone of our Bill of Rights. I firmly believe in the ability of our citizens to protect their lives, family, their property and their country, and the right to bear arms is a very critical component of this intrinsic value that we all cherish as Americans. Unfortunately, it is not so difficult to imagine a scenario of evil when local, state and federal law enforcement may be insufficient to protect against imminent danger, and when, “We The People”, must have the ability to defend themselves – with firearms if they so choose. This happened all too recently in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina with rampant lawlessness in New Orleans And our young adults should be able to defend themselves in colleges so that they are safe from Predators like the one in Oregon…! The federal government’s response to this catastrophic event was woefully inadequate, but the loss of human life and property would have been much worse had not our citizens not been able to defend themselves and their valuable possessions from looters, thieves and hardened desperate criminals of whom did not care about their fellow citizens freedoms….!

    “Regulation” of guns should be measured, minimal and aimed at criminals, not law-abiding American citizens. I duly oppose mandatory registration of guns for law-abiding American citizens, but support increased penalties for use of guns in the commission of a crime, particularly for repeat offenders. I always and will vote in favor of concealed carry laws with appropriate qualifications and comprehensive training, and I duly and most adamantly would oppose laws that give unfettered discretion to the government especially Liberal Democrats to refuse concealed carry permits….!

    The Second Amendment Individual Right belongs to all of us as “American Individual Citizens”. It does not belong to a city or a state, and I believe that lawsuits against gun manufacturers by political bodies are frivolous and unwarranted. My long-held beliefs, and those of others who believe in the right to bear arms, have been justified by the recent rulings in Parker v. District of Columbia [and the Heller decision, which protects an individual right to possess a firearm for traditionally lawful purposes such as self defense within the home and; McDonald vs Chicago the first SCOTUS case to decide that the Second Amendment protect an Individual right to keep and bear arms for self defense]…! That Parker decision upheld a Second Amendment challenge to the District of Columbia’s ban on functional firearms, and the court’s ruling supports our Founding Fathers’ intent in crafting the Second Amendment….!

    Finally, we must always remember that the Second Amendment has nothing to do with hunting. While I support the rights of hunters, it is misleading for politicians to frame their Second Amendment arguments by voicing support for those who hunt game. The Second Amendment has a much broader purpose to it, and I will recognize that its original intent was to protect against Tyranny, Government Oppressions, Invading Armies and to ensure the Rights of our American Citizens to safeguard their own lives, families and property….!

    The Second Amendment belongs to the Citizens of America…..!
