President Obama is threatening to no longer work with congress, and says he will instead govern through executive orders.
Obama, in a meeting with his cabinet, said:
“We are not just going to be waiting for legislation in order to make sure that we are providing Americans the kind of help that they need. I’ve got a pen and I’ve got a phone,” Obama said.
Obama continued: ”And I can use that pen to sign executive orders and take executive actions and administrative actions that move the ball forward in helping to make sure our kids are getting the best education possible, making sure that our businesses are getting the kind of support and help they need to grow and advance, to make sure that people are getting the skills that they need to get those jobs that our businesses are creating.”
While he didn’t directly mention going after guns, he did draft two orders last week that will allow the Department of Justice and the Department of Health and Human Services to access your private medical records in order to determine if you are mentally stable enough to own a firearm. So I would expect even more gun control attempts through executive orders during the next couple of weeks.
