DOJ’s Eric Holder Confirms: Obama Looking at Taking Executive Action to Pass Gun Control

Hours after President Obama’s new Gun Task force met for the first time, Attorney General Eric Holder announced that The Obama Administration may use executive order to implement gun control in the wake of the Connecticut School shooting.

Obama Holder Biden Gun Task ForceAccording to Reuters, Attorney General Eric Holder announced that The Obama Administration will consider executive action as part of its new gun policy. Holder, who was once quoted saying we have to “Brainwash people into thinking about guns in a vastly different way”, told reporters that they are working on a range of options that will be rolled out over the coming weeks.

Holder is part of a new gun violence task force, created by President Barack Obama and headed by Vice President Joe Biden, that will guide the administration through their efforts to enact gun control legislation.

Thursday’s meeting included Attorney General Eric Holder, Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano and Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius. After the meeting concluded, Holder told reporters that any gun control measures would include a “strong and robust” Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

In my opinion, this action has been in the works for some time. In fact, back in August we reported how the DOJ was in the process of figuring out how they could use their power to make it more difficult for Americans to purchase guns.

    When the “gun registration” starts, claim guns as stolen or sold. Their plan is to start a mandatory registration of ALL firearms. Second, they will come and TAKE them from you. Don’t think the government will do it? Just watch this video.

    They don’t want you to be able to defend yourself, they want you to rely on them. All they want to do is remove the weapons of law abiding citizens that are defenseless against terrorists, murderers, rapists and any other criminal that comes along. On the black market one can purchase FULLY automatic weapons and EXPLOSIVES! How can anyone believe that making SEMI automatics illegal would change anything. Criminals would simply buy black market weapons and kill citizens anyways, like MOST of them already do. Wake up! The time to prepare is now. Buy your weapons before the 1st of January! Hide them, they might even come into your home to look for them. We do not forgive nor will we forget the atrocities that took place after Hurricane Katrina. Every time the government offers “help” they expect you to give up your rights in return. Good luck everyone.

      The only problem with that is that when you do have to defend yourself/your famliy with a firearm you don’t have is when YOU spend the rest of your life as a fugitive or inmate. Just look at Britain. This is what I am worried about more than a govt take-over but I may just have my worries backwards.

        Those of us in the beginning will have to die, but the tsunami of backlash from patriots, lone wolves, vigilantes and true Americans will overwhelm them beyond comprehension. They can’t even “pacify” a twerpy little state like Iraq after 11 years. What the hell do they think is going to happen when massive amounts of the police and military turn on them along with the 40+ million highly armed patriots?

      Sorry to burst your bubble. Obama doesn’t abide by the Constitution never has, have will. We are no longer a Constitutional Republic and it’s only going to get worse with O. in office.History repeats itself.

    I realy have a hard time with obeying a man that let his DOJ chief run guns across the border and didnt spend one minute being truthful about it… And then to top it off he put him in charge of controling us and our gun rights. I can’t wait to see what the NRA has to say…

    One of our Family names, Kuchenski, doesn’t exist anymore in Poland. Unarmed Poles were taken to labor camps by Stalin….whole villages. Since we cannot trust the Attorney General Holder to enforce existing laws, nor can we trust President Obama to obey the Constitution, the next logical step is to disarm America to remove further freedoms. It is in every Socialist Playbook, and has been played out in History time and time again.

    I sold all of my guns at the last gun show in my area. To pay for our medical care.

    I do not recognize the emperor’s fiat decrees as ‘law’. Without being passed by both houses of Congress, those decrees have all the substance – and share the same adjectives – as a fart.

    All you have to do is look at Romney if you want to know why Obama won. That and the fact that the media ignored all the rest of the candidates.
    Im seeing the media as a very large part of the problem. They need to stop sensationalizing these idiots who commit horrid crimes. Now anyone who want to be infamous, or a terrorist, or both knows the media will make it happen.
    Both Republicans and Democrats need to go. We have nothing but extremists from both sides in office.

    Funny Eric Holder can sell guns to drug dealers in Mexico but they want to take our guns.

      I would think majority of the country would think the same-raised my blood pressure simply hearing the phrase. I do not even own guns, matters not as it is the ‘big kahuna’ cornerstone of the country. Not a gun owner, historically liberal and still think MADNESS!!

    Tic..toc..It seems odd to me that the same man who kept important facts to himself, and lied to Congress about guns that HE made himself ultimately responsible for by his actions, is the same one trying to take them away. Criminals will be the only ones with guns if the government succeeds in taking away the People’s 2nd Amendment rights. Thus is why they are criminals..they care not about the laws..therefore, that being said, I know ALOT of people, whom, when that time DOES com will become criminals.. Removal of weapons is a dictatorship’s first course of action when taking over.. Look out..
    If you value your life and freedom, remember three important words.. “Cold, dead fingers…”

    It is going to get bad real bad. Revolvers, single shot and bolt action rifle will survive. I plan to trade my “assault weapons” for correct weapons in order to keep them. Its hard to say the final outcome but with the state of the economy and now this I see the beginning of the end. The haves and have nots. Good luck to you all.

      Oh, I had to sell all mine for cash while I’ve been unemployed. There is no requirement for registration of a private long gun sale where I live, so I can’t say where they went, but I sold them cheap – and for cash – to pay my bills. I took my pistols and sold those outside a gun show in in a nearby state where it was legal there to do that without any record, or at least I and they buyers both believed it was.

      That’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it.

        Hoards of people, heck maybe majority(?) had to sell firearms in tough economic times ;) I know several ppl who have to resort to this, it was like parting with a pet. Not happy campers!
        Paper work snafu, problems arise for sale of gun. Sometimes (often?) still show up registered to original owners.
        Happened to my neibor, prior to digging a 25 ft deep barbacue? Odd seems most of the structure is on the surface….must need a deep/sturdy foundation! lol

    What EVERYONE seems to be forgetting is that the killer in the Conn shootings aquired his guns ILLEGALLY frim his mom who had them legally. If he obtained them Illegally, how is making MORE gun control laws going to stop anyone except law abiding people from defending themselves from criminals. As my dad says, “When guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns”. Criminals WILL find a way to get what they want to do what they want…..hmmm, wait a minute, I think I just described congress.
