Greeley Gazette -- Plans include enacting restrictions via Executive Order, bypassing Congress
While the Obama administration said it is committed to gun rights, a gun control advocate has spilled the beans, saying Obama is using stealth to work on firearms restrictions.
The Washington Post did a story on Steve Croley, the White House gun control czar. Croley is considered to be an expert on regulation and tort law. His approach to gun control appears to be a regulatory one.
According to the article, Jim and Sarah Brady visited Capital Hill on March 30, the 30th anniversary of the assassination attempt on Ronald Reagan; to push for a ban on "large magazines."
The couple reportedly were meeting with press secretary, Jay Carney, when, according to Sarah Brady, the President came in. She said the President told her he wanted to talk about gun control and "fill us in that it was very much on his agenda."
She went on to say Obama told her, "I just want you to know that we are working on it. We have to go through a few processes, but under the radar."
The statement reinforces an article in the Huffington Post describing how the administration is exploring ways to bypass Congress and enact gun control through executive action.
Cap'n Says: I would be surprised if this even was whispered about before the election of 2012. Note, I am a Life Member of the NRA because I want to support lawsuits that require overreaching government officials to go to court to be read the second amendment out loud. And where the judge has to force them to listen by having the bailiff pull their fingers out of their ears.
Also, note, without the second amendment, you can't keep the first one.
