Obama Says New Gun Control Executive Orders Are “Well Within My Legal Authority”

| |

Even as critics in Congress are blasting Obama’s upcoming new gun control executive orders as “dangerous overreach” targeting the 2nd Amendment, Obama has defended them, claiming his plans are “well within my legal authority”.

Obama, via Reuters:

“The good news is .. these are not only recommendations that are well within my legal authority and the executive branch, but they’re also ones that the overwhelming majority of the American people, including gun owners, support,” Obama said during a meeting with Attorney General Loretta Lynch and other advisers.

The new gun control measures are likely to be announced sometime this week. Wonder if another perfectly timed mass shooting will accompany them.

Even though the stock market fell today, stocks in gun manufacturers like Smith & Wesson rose against the news. Pro gun control president Obama is perhaps the best gun salesmen in America, it seems.

Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan released a statement blasting the president:

“While we don’t yet know the details of the plan, the president is at minimum subverting the legislative branch, and potentially overturning its will. His proposals to restrict gun rights were debated by the United States Senate, and they were rejected. No president should be able to reverse legislative failure by executive fiat, not even incrementally. The American people deserve a president who will respect their constitutional rights – all of them. This is a dangerous level of executive overreach, and the country will not stand for it.” (source)

That’s great and all, but Paul Ryan doesn’t even sort of have a backbone, so this statement, while absolutely true, pretty much means zip.

In the meantime, the president will simply continue to chip away at the 2nd Amendment as much as he can before his final year is up, just as he has repeatedly threatened to do.

    Hard to say if he’s within his “legal authority” without saying what actions as a dictator he’s taking – he may be taking the Gore road and claiming “no controlling legal authority” or some such thing where he believes himself to be above the law.

    Of course, hard to see how he could be within his legal authority, since to be so, he would have to be acting to enforce a law passed by congress and that law would have to be constitutional. Most of the laws out there that regulate firearms are not constitutional.

    No one can take our guns. No one. We the people own this nation. Not Obama. Not Hillary. Not congress and not the courts. Any laws that are opposite of the constitution are null and void period. The leadership in DC is guilty of treason, sedition. Subversion. Espionage. Malfeasance. Seditious conspiracy. Usurpation and several other laws.

    Under federal law, 18 USC 242, it is illegal for anyone under the color of law to deprive any person of the rights, privileges or immunities secured by the U.S. Constitution, and under 18 USC 241 it is illegal to conspire to violate such rights. It is a felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison. This could be applied to local, state, or federal law enforcement or military personnel who abuse the rights of citizens. Every state has a similar law.

    The key point is this: You not only have the right to disobey an illegal order, but you may also have the duty to apprehend the parties issuing such an order if such issuance is part of the commission of a crime.

    Islam, by law, is prohibited from US immigration

    http://www.usacarry.com/forums/off-topic/53275-islam-law-prohibited-us-immigration.html

    The Immigration and Nationality Act passed June 27, 1952 revised the laws relating to immigration, naturalization, and nationality for the United States. That act, which became Public Law 414, established both the law and the intent of Congress regarding the immigration of Aliens to the US and remains in effect today. Among the many issues it covers, one in particular, found in Chapter 2 Section 212, is the prohibition of entry to the US if the Alien belongs to an organization seeking to overthrow the government of the United States by “force, violence, or other unconstitutional means.” This, by its very definition, rules out Islamic immigration to the United States, but this law is being ignored by the White House.

    Excerpt more:

    Islamic immigration to the US would be prohibited under this law because the Koran, Sharia Law and the Hadith all require complete submission to Islam, which is antithetical to the US government, the Constitution, and to the Republic. All Muslims who attest that the Koran is their life’s guiding principal subscribe to submission to Islam and its form of government. Now the political correct crowd would say that Islamists cannot be prohibited from entering the US because Islam is a religion. Whether it is a religion is immaterial because the law states that Aliens who are affiliated with any “organization” that advocates the overthrow of our government are prohibited. It also prohibits those who distribute literature that advocates the overthrow of our country, which would include the Koran.

    In fact, there are many verses in the Koran that command Islamists to kill those who do not submit to allah and the prophet. If Congress so desired to hold the White House accountable to the current immigration of refugees (which also must comply with the law), it has the Immigration and Nationality Act to cite. The Administration is breaking that law. The question is “does Congress have the political will to do something about it?” Or shall we be a nation like that in Isaiah 59:14 where, “justice is turned back, and righteousness stands afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter.” I think you know the answer, at least for now. But there are a handful of Congressmen who are studying this. Pray.

    The United States is a sovereign nation. Sovereignty is a simple idea: the United States is an independent nation, governed by the American people, that controls its own affairs. The American people adopted the Constitution and created the government. They elect their representatives and make their own laws.

    Let’s get something straight. The media, courts, legislatures, and governors should be shouting that he must be impeached. There is absolutely no authority for him to create any rules or regulations regarding the People of this nation. In particular you can understand the corruption of all involved here when you refer to what the court stated in Miranda, but have been silent on. “Where rights secured by the Constitution are involved, there can be no rule making or legislation that would abrogate them.”
    It is time to face some facts. The legal profession is in on it, as is much of the media who appear to be paid shills for government tyranny. When you have such obvious violations of the oath of office verging on treason, and a media that colludes with such treachery its time to ask why every American hasn’t armed themselves as is not just a right, but also a duty recognized in the Constitution.

    “Obama has defended them, claiming his plans are “well within my legal “authority””

    He is lying.

    One little word in the US Constitution, Article 1 proves that: “All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States,
    which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.”

    See that little word “All”? That word means that ONLY those who are elected to the House of Rep and the Senate can create any legislature that is binding on the American people.

    That one word FORBIDS anyone else in the legislative branch, and those that SERVE WITHIN the other two branches from creating any type of legislature that is binding on the US people. The only people that an EO is binding on is those that serve within the executive branch itself.

    Here are the DELEGATED powers assigned to the presidency, not to any person who serves within it, as they are ALLOWED to be able to use that authority for as long as they keep their Oath and are LAWFULLY put into office.

    Article 2, Section 1 has a requirement from the person who will temporarily be US president (along with other stuff): “Before he enter on the Execution of his Office, he shall take the following Oath or Affirmation:

    “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

    Section 2: “The President shall be Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the several States, WHEN CALLED INTO THE ACTUAL SERVICE OF THE UNITED STATES (when the congress has declared war);

    he may require the Opinion, in writing, of the principal Officer in each of the executive Departments, upon any Subject relating to the Duties of their respective Offices, and he shall have Power to grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offences against the United States, except in Cases of Impeachment.

    He shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur;

    and he shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States, whose Appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by Law: but the Congress may by Law vest the Appointment of such inferior Officers, as they think proper, in the President alone, in the Courts of Law, or in the Heads of Departments.

    The President shall have Power to fill up all Vacancies that may happen
    during the Recess of the Senate, by granting Commissions which shall
    expire at the End of their next Session.”

    Section 3: “He shall from time to time give to the Congress Information of the State of the Union, and recommend to their Consideration such Measures as
    he shall judge necessary and expedient;

    he may, on extraordinary Occasions, convene both Houses, or either of them, and in Case of Disagreement between them, with Respect to the Time of Adjournment, he may adjourn them to such Time as he shall think proper; he shall receive Ambassadors and other public Ministers;

    he shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed, and shall Commission all the Officers of the United States.”

    Those are the DELEGATED duties that are assigned to the position of US President, whoever occupies that position.

    As long as we are talking about authority I think it would be good to remind Obama that the whole intent of the second amendment was so that the people could throw off the yoke of tyranny should they need to and that his “leadership” is only by consent. If you look at what happened in Connecticut and other states when they pushed unconstitutional laws through the people simply refused to comply. Tens of thousands of people realized the first step in confiscation is registration and at the threat of becoming felons in the eyes of the law they stood up as a collective and won. Obama will need a lot more than some executive order to take our guns and if the UN thinks they are any match for the American public then just come on over and die on our soil, the tree of liberty could use a good watering.

    Many things are in my right, but is it right to do so.

    The NRA is the oldest civil rights organization in this country. It was founded by Republicans to fight anti-gun laws targeting blacks. The NRA gave run rights to black men who wanted to protect their families from the KKK (founded by the Chairman of the DNC (Democrat National Committee Nathan Bedford Forest.) The ACLU was unable to make inroads in many areas of the south until the NRA armed the black men in the areas, causing the cowardly KKK to stay home. Why does no one know this now? Please verify this for yourselves, and give it an up vote! This should be the talking point when the NRA is pointed out as a racist organization.
