VIA| When it comes to the collective hive mind that makes up the progressive Obama administration, there’s simply no assault on constitutional rights too great to get in the way of their vision of a socialist Utopia.
Take for example the president’s latest steps to trample the Constitution under foot by creating executive orders concerning gun control.
Josh Earnest recently said the whole focus of the orders is to prevent guns from getting in the ‘wrong hands’ even if it only prevents one or two shootings.
In other words, all of these tragedies were exactly what liberals were hoping for in order to justify banning guns.
If we could prevent even just one or two gun deaths…. Josh Earnest argues for executive action on gun control

“What the president is focused on in the context of this exercise is very directly on what steps this administration can take to keep guns out of the wrong hands. And we’re not under the illusion that that is going to prevent every incident of gun violence. But if it’s possible that we could prevent even one or two incidents of gun violence, then we’re going to eagerly implement those executive actions, and that’s exactly what the president’s focused on.”

Of course, liberty minded folk were none too happy about Earnest’s comments:

If it saves just one life, no assault on constitutional rights is too great. Really? https://t.co/HukQZHKkaM
