Day 34 – No Executive Orders

THAUMATURGY!

Still, nothing posted at the White House website about President Obama’s supposedly signed 23 executive orders pertaining to gun control.

But the debate still rages on as some states and local communities are attempting to implement some form of gun control and/or even confiscation. Gun advocates in some states are even taking a proactive approach to implement some form of gun safety and education programs that they believe will help reduce gun accidents while at the same time protecting rights and heritage.

Here are some links to issues concerning gun rights and gun control that are still consuming media outlets and government legislatures.

The Heritage Foundation provides its members and readers in general with an explanation about the myths surrounding the so-called “gun show loophole.”

In a guest post at Zero Hedge dot com, a writer asks, “Are There Any Peaceful Solutions Left?

Gun ban would exempt more than 2,000 specific firearms.

The Washington Times says that those states with the toughest gun laws don’t translate into low crime rate.

In Maine there is a debate as to whether or not the state should require gun safety to be taught in high schools.

Maine state Rep. Ken Fredette, in an editorial, says that “Guns Are not the Enemy.”

Obama Plans 23 EOs On Destruction of Second Amendment

The devil is in the details, as they say. Below is a list of 23 Executive Order ideas that President Obama intends to implement in his effort to avoid any scrutiny from the public or that of Congress. Many see this as an impeachable offense. However, it is imperative that I point out that this list only calls for an idea to be implemented and in no way tells us what the details of any or all executive orders would entail. While some “ideas” may seem plausible, even sound, we cannot and should not vote up or down until we see the details of each of the executive actions; and this will not happen until AFTER the EO has been signed by the president. Stand by.
