    Biden says Obama could use executive orders to restrict guns

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Vice President Joe Biden said on Wednesday the White House is determined to act quickly to curb gun violence and will explore all avenues - including executive orders that would not require approval by Congress - to try to prevent incidents like last month's massacre at a Connecticut school.
    Kicking off a series of meetings on gun violence, Biden said the administration would work with gun-control advocates and gun-rights supporters to build a consensus on restrictions. But he made clear that President Barack Obama is prepared to act on his own if necessary.

    Why even have a 2nd Amendment if a President can just executive order around it? This is out of hand.

    Not surprising. It has nothing to do with preventing violence. It is only an attempt to create more control over us.

    on his wearing his sidearm. "Sheriff, I see you have your pistol. Are you
    expecting trouble?" "No Ma'am. If I were expecting trouble, I would have
    brought my rifle."

    it is just that they know so much that isn't so.

    Why bother with a legislature and courts when the king can rule by fiat?
