    An executive order that alters the Second Amendment falls under the penalty of "The alteration of the form of the government of the United States by unconstitutional means.

    The amending of the Constitution does not have a place for the Executive Branch with the exception of the Presidents Signature.

    Do not violate your oath Mr. President on an action that is clearly forbidden to the Executive.

    Executive Order 10450

    I have a few Constitutional Lawyer friends who are seriously looking at this.

    It all boils down to what the President does. If he is smart and shelves the entire debate, we all remain safer and discussion can go back to what we are going to do about our bankruptcy problem. If he isn't smart; we'll see what happens with regard to violation of oath and if this country even takes such oaths seriously.

    I am sure he has his legal team on it too and I hope they have advised him to tread very carefully on this one.

    Time will tell.

    They were also discussing the notion that somehow, the federal government has taken it upon itself to believe they have the power to protect people. In truth, they have only that power to protect us from other nations. It is the responsibility of the States and other municipal entities to protect us. They have to also do it without violating the Bill of Rights.

    Exactly.

    During the debates the founders had on the adoption of the Constitution, it was the concern that the Constitution as drafted alone would open the way to tyranny by the central government, thus the BoR.

    Obama does not follow the rules. What is worrisome is for the most part he gets away with it .
