Biden suggests White House could act without Congress as part of gun control plan

Vice President Biden suggested Wednesday that the White House could take unilateral action on gun control, as he kicked off a round of meetings aimed at finding ways to curb gun violence.

The vice president met Wednesday with gun-safety and victims groups, saying he is “determined” to take “urgent action” to address gun violence.

“This is not an exercise in photo opportunities or just getting to ask you all what your opinions are. We are vitally interested in what you have to say,” Biden said.

The White House has sought to avoid prejudging what Biden’s recommendations would be. But the vice president hinted Wednesday that executive action — action by the president in which Congress would not have a say — would indeed be involved.

“Executive action … can be taken,” Biden said, adding “we haven’t decided what that is yet.”

Anything done by executive order will produce the worst possible outcome. Many are predicting that it would result in “civil war” in the streets of America. I do not disagree, though the spread and depth of such a conflict are impossible to predict. All I can say is, Let them try… and they will learn quickly why these statements were made:

“Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger in the end is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is a daring adventure or nothing.” — Helen Keller

“A nation of sheep will beget a government of wolves.” — Edward R. Morrow

“A patriot must always be ready to defend his country against his government.” — Edward Abbey

“To preserve liberty it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them.” — Richard Henry Lee

He knows full well what that EO would mean and that is exactly why he is considering it. If he signs the order and even one politician who has been in support of such an order were to be assassinated or another mass shooting were to occur, that give him the excuse he needs to impose even more EO’s and attempt to take all the guns on an accelerated timeline. I think this is a calculated move on his part.

This administration is certainly dangerous for America. Is this what Obama wants? A possible uprising like America has never seen.
