Obama mulls issuing executive orders on gun control

Rick  Moran

Joe  Biden and his big mouth.

The  HIll:

President  Obama will likely take executive action in an effort to  tamp down the recent  rash of gun violence, Vice President Biden said  Wednesday.

"The  president is going go act," said Biden, who is conducting meetings  all week on  gun control. "There are executive orders,  executive action  that can be taken. We haven't decided what that is yet, but  we're  compiling it all."

He  said last month's Newtown, Conn., tragedy - which took the lives of  20  elementary school children - "touched the heart of the American  people so  profoundly" and "requires immediate, urgent action."

It  is unclear what specific executive orders Obama is  contemplating, though one  Democratic aide with insight into the talks  said Obama could sidestep Congress  and bolster federally funded  mental-health programs.

Biden  sat beside Attorney General Eric  Holder  as he met at the White House with gun-control leaders, including  the Brady  Campaign to End Gun Violence, along with victims of gun  violence, including  survivors of the Virginia Tech University  shooting  and the stepfather of a victim in last summer's Aurora, Colo.,  shooting.

Participants  in the meeting said while Biden underscored the fundamental respect of  the  Second Amendment, the consensus at the table focused on assault  weapons and  high capacity magazines along with background checks.

"I  want to make clear that we're not going to get caught up in the notion  that,  unless we can do everything, we're going to do nothing," Biden  said. "It's  critically important we act."

It should be noted that there is a near zero chance that the president will  issue an executive order grabbing any guns. It is more likely that Obama will  tighten reporting requirements for state agencies who report mentally ill people  to the government, or perhaps hit gun shows with new requirements that will make  it more difficult for sellers to do business. But there's no sense going  overboard with hysterical warnings about  Obama taking guns. Not going to happen and it only makes the president's critics  look crazy.

Daniel  Halper reports how emotionally unhinged Biden became in this  meeting:

Biden  said that this is a moral issue and that "it's critically important that we  act."

Biden  talked also about taking responsible action. "As the president  said, if your  actions result in only saving one life, they're worth  taking. But I'm convinced  we can affect the well-being of millions of  Americans and take thousands of  people out of harm's way if we act  responsibly."

A  "moral issue?" Nonsense. It's a constitutional issue and Biden is deliberately  ratcheting up the rhetoric to hysterical levels. And if you save "one life" and  take "thousands of people out of harm's way," what about the thousands of armed  citizens who save lives - their own, their families, and bystanders - by having  the ability to defend themselves?

Of  far more importance than any executive order Obama might issue is the obvious  administration strategy of turning this into an emotional debate so that people  won't think logically of the consequences. To do this, they will invoke Newtown  every chance they get. They know they will lose a debate on the merits and  facts. But they have a chance if they exploit the Newtown dead and scare people  into pressuring congress to adopt bad legislation.

"Never  let a crisis go to waste" - even if you have to create one by standing on the  dead bodies of little children.
