I heard a clip on Fox News of President Barack Hussein Obama relating a conversation (I am uncertain if it was in person or by mail) with a kid relating to gun control. I also saw four children sitting while the President addressed publically his concept of gun control.
Paraphrasing from memory the President said this kid asked something like, “I know you (meaning BHO) have to wait for Congress to enact laws, but can you do something about guns?”
Keep in mind this is just a paraphrase. The point though is BHO is using children to justify controlling citizens’ use of guns against the Second Amendment specific Right to Bear Arms.
With that in mind check out this email from Matthew Staver of the Liberty Counsel reporting on BHO intentions about guns and the Second Amendment.
Biden: 19 ways to bypass Congress

According to published reports, President Obama’s “gun control” measures will include 19 Executive Orders (EOs), as recommended by Vice President Biden’s task force, that he says are within his power to execute. Already, at least one irate Congressman has threatened to start impeachment procedures if the President follows through with his gun control agenda without regard to the legislative process.
Our constitutional rights are being dismantled before our eyes as the Obama axis of power rolls roughshod over the rule of law in America. I am calling on ALL patriots to join Liberty Counsel in our “I Second the First” campaign to protect our Constitution!
Please see my very important update below – Mat.
President Obama must truly believe that the legislative process is too much of a nuisance and just too bothersome to be useful.
You know the process I mean...the one mandated in our Constitution as established by the Founders – the process at the heart of the rule of law in our nation.
Perhaps the President thinks it just takes too long to establish laws lawfully. Or, maybe he thinks the Constitution is too cumbersome and his Executive Orders are a more efficient and modern alternative way to “get things done.”
More likely, he is fully aware that his proposals would never pass through the lawful legislative process. Someone on his imperial staff may have noticed that we pesky citizens can sometimes thwart the President’s best Leftist ideas before they have a chance trample all over the People’s liberties!
Judging from his actions, it is even possible the President believes that the checks and balances defined by the Constitution were just fine for a young nation in the 18th Century, but that it has been necessary for the Executive Branch’s prerogatives to “evolve” to have the decisiveness required in the 21st Century.
Whatever the President’s thoughts, they are clearly not worthy of the Oath of Office he will renew next Monday! That oath, laid out in Article I, Section 1 of the Constitution, is simple and to the point:
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of the President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”
John, I’ll leave it to you decide if Barack Obama is fulfilling his solemn oath by undermining and circumventing the Constitution.
++A lawless administration in action.
The reality of how the Obama administration intends to operate during the President’s second term has dominated the news cycles for several days now. President Obama, on the recommendation of Vice President Biden, is considering enacting as many as 19 Executive Orders on gun control.
This is Barack Obama’s style of leadership. Thomas Jefferson, a major contributor to the checks and balances enshrined in the Constitution, called it “elective despotism.” It is an overarching abuse of power.
Barack Obama’s 19 executive power grabs on “gun control” (the number as of today, anyway – there could be a lot more coming) are likely just the beginning of this administration’s attempt to trample on the Second Amendment Right to Bear Arms.
Here’s Liberty Counsel’s resolute position on this issue: We must "stick to our guns" and resist this tyranny!
The very purpose of the Second Amendment was to allow citizens to bear arms to protect their hard-won freedom and defend themselves from future tyrants. Yet today, we seem to have forgotten that the first battle of the American Revolution erupted when the tyrant King George’s forces marched to disarm the colonists by seizing an important powder magazine and armory!
It is now clear that the Obama administration fully intends to shake off all restraint in pursuing its dangerous, “progressive” agenda – even when it infringes on Americans’ right to bear arms, exercise their religious liberties, or hold sacred their rights of conscience.
That’s why Liberty Counsel launched our powerful “I Second the First” campaign to tell our elected officials…
“We the people” demand that the federal government return to the rule of law as established by the United States Constitution!
We will stand together and protect our Constitution and its precious First and Second Amendments, the very heart of every American's Bill of Rights, against radical attacks!

++Congressman takes Obama’s power grab very seriously.
Representative Steve Stockman (R-TX) has threatened to file articles of impeachment against President Obama if he institutes gun control measures through Executive Orders.
In a statement, Representative Stockman wrote…
“I will seek to thwart this action by any means necessary, including but not limited to eliminating funding for implementation, defunding the White House, and even filing articles of impeachment.”
Steve Stockman should be joined by hundreds of his fellow Congressmen! The way in which the Obama administration is operating mocks the balance of power as set out in the Constitution!
John, we simply cannot allow our constitutionally protected rights to be dismantled by a tyrannical president with no regard for the rule of law or the checks and balances of power built into our Constitution!

P.S. President Obama intends to enact Executive Orders to limit, or in some cases even eliminate, gun rights. Our constitutional rights must be protected from the assaults of any despot, including this one!
We’ll send your colorful “I Second the First” campaign sticker as soon as we record your signed petition. May God bless you!
