    Obama Looking For Ways Around Congress On Gun Policy

    Here we go again KING Obama wants to by pass CONGRESS again.. Now making stricter laws is only going to make it harder for law abiding citizens to get guns NOT the criminals since most of them get them on the streets not from guns stores..

    Oh and I used HUFF post on purpose so you left wing hacks cant say it is a right wing website:badgrin:

    Last paragraph, not surprisingly. Putting more regulatory impediments in the way to legal gun ownership won't help against people who illegally obtain guns. The only thing that would help is more/better enforcement of existing laws and rooting out those who supply guns illegally.

    Just like cops who fight drugs try to get to the dealers, that's what needs to happen with illegal guns.

    The article is a few months old, but this caught my eye:



    With respect to the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.), a Clinton-era rule had prevented the military from reporting to the Federal Bureau of Investigation that the alleged shooter, Jared Loughner, had been rejected as a recruit for failing a drug test. Obama could reverse that without Congress, Glaze and an administration official said.


    :eusa_eh:

    How is that grounds to deny gun ownership?

    Isn't it interesting that the ONLY thing Obama has done in his term is LOOSEN gun restrictions.....he's sneaky that way.

    Obama is looking for a way around Congress on everything. One wonders what he'll do if he loses the election.

    It would appear the OP failed to read, or comprehend, the cited article; otherwise this thread succeeds only in displaying an inflammatory and misleading title.

    None of the proposed actions conflict in anyway with existing 2nd Amendment case law, in no way violate separation of powers by getting ‘around’ Congress, and seek only to enforce existing laws and policies.
