Obama thinks he has been made King. If he can't get his bills passed in Congress he just thinks he can snap his fingers and make it be.

You sir are an idiot! none of these 23 orders are out of line. When someone walks in the school where your child is with a rifle with a 50 round mag in it and takes out little johnny, then you will be complaining about that.. Mis informed and highly un educated on the topic.. do us all a favor and eat your own bullet

YOU are the idiot! If Obama wants to try to change guns laws, then he needs to try and get it passed through Congress. But he doesn't even try so he thinks he can just (with the stroke of a pen) by-pass Congress and ignore the 2nd Amendment!

No other President has ever used executive orders like Obama has, just b/c he doesn't want to fight Congress. He is not a damn KING! He is President and has no more power than any other branch of the federal government.

The 2nd Amendment is very plain in ensuring the people's right to own guns. The Supreme Court has always upheld this right with some reasonable limitations (background checks, etc.).

If Obama can by-pass Congress & the courts on the 2nd Amendment, then what is stop him from trying to restrict the 1st Amendment? Or any other? If he doesn't like free speech (if they disagree with him) will he just sign an "executive order" to restrict it? Or to restrict Christians' right to evangelize?

This man must be stopped! Now that he has been re-elected he thinks he can do whatever he damn well pleases! Over 250K new members have joined the NRA and I'm about to myself! I own a pistol and I'm going to get another gun. I would advise everyone else to do the same!

So you freaking idiots are okay if he ignores the Constitution? You liberal idiots b*tched when Bush did something, even when he had Congressional approval. Maybe the next President (a Republican) will sign an executive order limiting the rights of liberal dumbarses to talk...

He won't get my guns even if he comes to my front door! Or anyone elses! The courts will throw this liberal sh*t out...

The thing is anon...he doesn't want to take away your guns. You are just some Coservative loon,trying to hype this up,cause they lost the election.

This is common sense,what President Obama is doing. When it comes to common sense vs the Constitution...no contest.

The majority of responsible common sense minded gun owners,do not oppose this, at all.

Only people opposing this,are the rednecks who still go barefoot to the store and think something that could be used by someone to kill someone is their right to have,just to have one.

Well no one in society needs an assault rifile used for the Military with semi auto rounds that hold 30+ bullets... made to do the most damage it can,or made to kill.You my friend are just briging drama,cause you don't like Obama.

It will happen and I fully support it and my President.

Just also remember, Anon...that the Constitution also says...life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. If one right endangers the other, then common sense must step in and find a middle ground to protect all the rights.

Sieg Heil Obama! Der Fuhrer has begun his socialist takeover in earnest. He did exactly what Hitler did when he instituted gun control. He surrounded himself with a group of children and claimed he was doing it all for them.

When you and the rest of Obama's brownshirts some for our guns, you'll have to wade through a hail of bullets. No go home and read Mein Kampf again like the good little Nazi you are.
