Executive Order to Illegally Impose Stricter Gun Laws Soon to Come
When Obama was unable to get immigration laws passed through Congress, he simply spoke new laws into existence, something the Constitution only invests Congress with the power to do. While that is tied up in court, he has basically commanded the DHS to stop arresting and deporting illegals. Now, with the upcoming campaign for president just months away, there is talk of new executive orders.
Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton on Monday proposed tighter gun-control measures, including expanded background checks, and suggested that if elected she would use executive powers to achieve her goals.
“I want to push hard to get more sensible restraints,” Clinton said on NBC’s “Today” show. “I want to work with Congress, but I will look at ways as president.”
If she gets in, there is no doubt that she will not only try and push this through, but also might simply pull and have Obama and speak this law into existence. It is unclear what the legal ramifications would be, but it is sure that she will try. She is not only going after the buyer, she is also going after the manufacturer.
