According to the Weekly Standard:
"The president is going to act," said Biden, giving some comments to the press before a meeting with victims of gun violence. "There are executive orders, there's executive action that can be taken. We haven't decided what that is yet. But we're compiling it all with the help of the attorney general and the rest of the cabinet members as well as legislative action that we believe is required."
You know what? The freedom activist in me is actually looking forward to this.
I have been arguing since the election that Obama will fail by overreaching. Any move that affects people on such a personal level, so widely, that has to be enacted by executive order because it can’t get through Congress will end up being a big Charlie Foxtrot.
It will stink of illegitimacy; it will inspire civil disobedience on a large scale; it will create a firestorm of legal challenges; and it will put Obama’s red state congressional allies in a very difficult spot (and this includes NRA A-rated Senate majority leader Harry Reid). Long after the Newtown massacre recedes into history as another heinous criminal act in a long line of heinous criminal acts, the furor such an action will inspire will be going strong.
So go ahead Barack, make my day.
