VIA| Well, our lawless president is once again seeking to usurp power from the legislative branch and consolidate it in the executive by concocting more executive orders to work around Congress.
This time it’s on gun control.
Once again, he’s taking full advantage of a horrific situation — the Oregon community college shooting — in order to justify violating the Constitution and doing whatever the heck he wants without caring a bit about assaulting the God-given rights of American citizens.
The White House confirmed that President Obama was preparing a series of executive actions on gun control to match his recent passion on the issue after the latest mass shooting in Oregon.
“It’s a high priority and will continue to be until we start to see more progress on this issue in this town,” White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest told reporters today at the press briefing.
Earnest said he would “quibble” with anyone who criticized the president for not voicing any specific gun control proposals during his press conference, asserting that the White House was working behind the scenes for more executive actions on guns.
“I can tell you that they’re not stumped, they’re continuing to review the law that’s on the books and continuing to consult with legal authorities but also others who may have ideas about what steps that can be taken to keep guns out of the hands of criminals,” Earnest said.
He admitted, however that he had no details for what the White House was working on, but asserted that the process was a “scrub” that was “ongoing.”
President Obama doesn’t seem to understand that his job, as described by the Constitution, is to enforce the laws, not create them.
If he’s so in love with the idea of creating legislation, he should’ve stayed in Congress, because, you know, the Constitution says this is the only branch of government with the power to make law.
He’s not only seeking to violate our Second Amendment right to own firearms, he’s also removing our voice from the legislative process by going around Congress.
What’s the point of having elected officials to make laws, if the president’s just going to do it anyway?
That’s not a representative republic. It’s a dictatorship.
Obama surely knows this isn’t going to go over well with most Americans, but it’s clear he doesn’t care.
Let’s hope Congress develops a backbone and stands up to the president’s egregious violation of the Constitution and puts this petulant child back in the corner.
