    What has been ordered in terms of gun control?

    How do you know power is being abused?

    It is rumored that Barry will come out with an Executive Order regarding gun control.

    That aside, looking at past Executive Orders, what should be allowed and what should be disallowed? For example, cap and trade and the Dream Act could not get pushed through Congress, so Obama wrote Executive Orders to bypass this dilemma. Should they be used to bypass the legislative power of Congress?

    Also, do you think they are Constitutional? Clearly they have been used in the past for Unconstitutional powers. For example, FDR used them to lock up Japanese Americans, a clear Constitutional violation that even you can't dispute. However, our wonderful checks and balances in government did nothing to stop it. Go figure.

    The Emancipation Proclamation was an Executive Order

    So what should their limitaions be, if any?

    For example, what if a President viewed the unborn as Lincoln viewed the slaves and simply wrote and Executive Order bypassing Roe vs. Wade?

    Let me guess, rw changed the subject again by posing a strawman counterpoint. (I actually want to see what he said and if I'm right when someone replies to him):D

    We need to rely on checks and balances

    Executive Orders have always been reigned in by Legislation and the courts.

    FDRs EO ordering internment of Japanese citizens was a prime example. Even though it was an obvious constitutional violation, neither the Congress nor the courts made a serious challenge. Why? Because of rampant anti-Japanese hysteria

    Will guns be the same? Will we overreact to the Sandy Hook massacre and allow a questionable EO to stand?

    We will have to see
