    Obama weighing executive action on guns
    Facing powerful opposition to sweeping gun regulations, President Barack Obama is weighing 19 steps he could take through executive action alone, congressional officials said.

    Basically he telling America ,I do not give a shit what anyone says ,I do as I please. My fellow Americans you have re elected a Dictator.

    Dictator-A person granted absolute emergency power. One holding complete autocratic control . One ruling absolutely and often oppressively. Has a fierce stranglehold on the country, keeping its people in poverty and ignorance.

    Naw, he's saying Congress can't act, so I'll do what I can with the power the executive branch has. If Congress doesn't like whatever he does, they can legistate over it. If whatever he does is deemed unconstitutional the courts can overturn it.

    Whatever he does, grab some popcorn, sit back and enjoy the show.

    Okay, quiz time. Which of these actions, from your own link, is unconstitutional or dictatorial? Which one is outside his executive authority?

    So...Obama's issuing of 143 Executive Orders during the first 4 years of his presidency makes him the "By-pass Congress President?"

    G.W. Bush issued 117 of them during his first 4 years, and 290 overall. What does that make him? His father, G.H.W. Bush issued 165 of them during his single, four year term and Ronald Reagan had 380 of them during his 2 terms. What are they?

    No it's not.

    And congress is the one acting as if we are in emergency after emergency. They are also shirking their constitutional responsibilities to govern, legislate, set policy or much of anything else.

    1. striking limits on federal research into gun use
    AFAIK, this is a law passed by congress and therefore outside of executive authority. That means that this would fit under the quoted posts claims.

    Now, before you jump my shit, I agree that such a law should be rescinded as it is asinine to limit the gathering of data BUT that was not what you asked. Tell me if I am incorrect on this...

    2. ordering tougher penalties against gun trafficking
    Is this not in the Judicial area? AFAIK, the president alone does not identify sentencing or any other type of punishment for crimes. Congress and the president can pass law setting sentencing but I didnt think that the president could do this alone???

    Texas Republican Rep. Steve Stockman threatened Monday afternoon that he would file articles of impeachment against President Barack Obama if he institutes gun control measures with an executive order.
    Stockman warned that such executive orders would be “unconstitutional” and “infringe on our constitutionally-protected right to keep and bear arms.
