Here are the 10 big strategies President Obama is pursuing:
* Require criminal background checks for all gun sales.
* Take four executive actions to ensure information on dangerous individuals is available to the background check system.
* Reinstate and strengthen the assault weapons ban.
* Restore the 10-round limit on ammunition magazines.
* Protect police by finishing the job of getting rid of armor-piercing bullets.
* Give law enforcement additional tools to prevent and prosecute gun crime.
* End the freeze on gun violence research.
* Make our schools safer with more school resource officers and school counselors, safer climates, and better emergency response plans.
* Help ensure that young people get the mental health treatment they need.
* Ensure health insurance plans cover mental health benefits.

The only thing the cons/2nd ammend gun nuts could possible say is that "it won't work". That's all they've ever said.

No point in replying. Libs will just keep supporting anything this president does...even if it is illegal executive action, so why bother? Maybe the "gun nuts" are too busy stocking up to care what is said here?

What "illegal executive action(s)" are you referring to?

You are so wrong in your analysis of "LIBS". The "Libs" [unfortunately not many in SJ County] that I converse with are capable of independent, creative, logical thinking. They base their views on facts and evidence. As opposed to the Cons I have dialog with, whom depend on Rush, Hannity, Glen Beck, FOX, or their preacher to tell them what to think. From day one I have been openly critical of the Prez when I disagree. Although, I do cut him a lot slack considering that the cons have been Hell bent on taking him down even if it means the Country be damned.

Yes, the "gun nuts" are very busy stocking up on guns and ammo. On visiting local pawn shops I observed long lines, been told they are out of ammo and having trouble getting more in.

There was a posting on a local pawn shop employee's face book page shortly after Sandy Hook, that said in one day they sold over 200 weapons, and took in approx.$100,000.00. His assessment "spooky". I agree.
Hmmmm

Or come to think of it, Carry may be that 58 yo dude that tried to pay a hooker with a happy meal and got busted down in Abq. They said the dude was from F-town and tried to get out of the bust by flashing his NRA membership card. Could explain his absence here.
