What I understand he can ban all imports of guns and ammo with an executive order. Most anything else wouldn't be legal

How long would it take the congress to act against Obama? He can declare anything and it could take years to change it. Lincoln his Hero shut down printing presses and put newmen in prison. And that was in the Northern states.:eek:

I think he can do anything through executive order. It can be fought in the courts which will take years...

Don't forget FDR banned the private ownership of gold with a mandatory 10 year prison sentence...

He did that with an executive order.

Sad times we live in where a president thinks he is king and the people do nothing. Do your worst obama, we deserve it.

I don't see how the president can ban the import of anything by executive order. In time such an order would be challenged in court and defeated.

What he can do is empower branches of the existing government or give/take their funding. The president can allow existing branches of the government to share information or even share certain tasks. In the focus of gun ownership, he can influence how background checks are done.

The problem with this is that the Supreme Court hasn't adjudicated for years; they create laws. This means that if the Socialist in Chief uses EO's it's damn near written in stone. Court challenges just burn up time while the sheep get used to new laws. To add insult to injury, We the People get to pay for all the governments lawyers.

I do not like what is happening. I hope it doesn't come to a civil war but this psychopath needs to learn he is not the king! I will not sit around and be screwed over, I may not be able to vote yet but I can fight if that is what it breaks down to.

No, he isn't the vking. He's THE CALIPH

EOs are not laws, they are law enforcement policies. The only thing I could see as an EO would be expanding the databases used for the NICS background check.
