    It's this mother fucker suicidal? Is he willing to send law enforcement to their death sentence to attempt enforcement?

    You can repeal parts of the constitution?

    You mean you'll put him into a coma?

    The theory is that via EO he could declar semi-auto weapons destructive devices and then they would be covered by the NFA. Or banning importation of rifles, magazines and ammunition. These are things he CAN do via EO that would in effect be an AWB.

    Yes, via amendment. There has been an amendment already repealed...I'll let you guess which one it was. This amendment lead to the gangs and violence that eventually lead to the NFA.

    It's funny how worked up some of you are getting over something that hasn't even happened yet that nobody here knows any facts or details on.

    In California, the 2nd Amendment is more repealed than it is not. We're lucky to be able to touch guns.

    What? Have you not been listened to what Obama's been saying the past few weeks? The details and end goal are clearly understood and known.

    So on the one hand we cant believe what Obama says, on the other we are to read into what he is saying, make whimsical predictions based on those words etc etc.

    And coincidentally, at the bottom of the totem pole of society :D


    In other news.... lets pull out some gun violence related charts, proving that year over year gun violence has gone down - yet they are swayed by their evening news that it is fully rampant and has been tripled :cool:

    About all he can do is issue an Exec Order banning mass murder.

    There's plenty. Obama wants an AWB. That means any magazine or weapon capable of firing more than 10 rounds could be made an NFA item. Possession of NFA item without appropriate tax stamp is a felony. This thread shows this administration is willing to do anything including EO to achieve that goal.

    Most all weapons people own would be considered an assault weapon because they hold more than 10 rounds = most gun owners would become felons with the stroke of a pen.

    Not paying attention, are you?

    No it means he will waste his political capital on a losing issue.

    How about save your argument until something actually happens that way open minded individuals can make an intelligent response.

    Edit: I would like to point out that I own 4 guns, an AR-15 with 30 round mags, a CZ-75 with 15 round mags, a Ruger P95 with 15 round mags and a small .380 with 6 round mags.

    The weapon doesn't hold more than 10 rounds, the magazine does. He's not going to make every semi-auto gun in existence an NFA item just because they might be capable of holding more than 10 rounds with the right magazine...

    Ok, so the magazines are NFA.

    They have also talked about banning semi-auto weapons as well. That is something he could try via EO. Making a semi-auto weapon NFA.

    Are you kidding? Did you actually type that with a straight face?

    Let's see, the Vice-President of the United States says the executive branch may use executive powers to sidestep legal law in the country in a video and a few Democrats say there's no reason to debate or discuss what he's proposed until it's already taken effect?
