Joe Biden Announces Something or Other

WASHINGTON-President Barack Obama is considering taking executive action to stem gun violence, Vice President Joe Biden said Wednesday, suggesting that some federal gun regulations will change even if support doesn't materialize in Congress.

"The president is going to act," Mr. Biden said, as he opened multiple days of meetings with interest groups as part of his assignment from Mr. Obama to draw up proposals for responding to the elementary-school shootings in Newtown, Conn. White House officials said no decisions had been made about what steps the administration would take.

Mr. Biden met Wednesday with gun-safety advocacy groups, as well as victims and survivors of shootings. He also made calls to governors, mayors and other local officials.

The vice president said in the private meeting he hoped to deliver recommendations to the president as soon as next week, a participant said.The meeting yielded consensus on calls for improved background checks and on bans on assault rifles and high-capacity magazines, according to the participantMr. Biden is likely to face resistance to most of those ideas on Thursday, when he is due to meet with the National Rifle Association, the nation's most powerful gun lobby, and other gun-rights groups. Wal-Mart Stores Inc., WMT -0.03% the country's largest seller of guns, initially said it couldn't meet Thursday with the vice president but on Wednesday said it would send a representative.

There is little sign lawmakers and advocacy groups on either side of the debate are willing to alter their stances, though room for agreement may exist in some areas, such as requiring states to increase their submission of mental-health records to the background-check system used to screen people buying guns from federally licensed dealers.

Mike Hammond, legislative counsel for Gun Owners of America, which wasn't invited to meet with Mr. Biden, said he didn't expect Thursday's meeting with gun-rights groups to be constructive. "They are being summoned" and will be "lectured," he said.


The NRA declined to comment on what it expects will happen at the meeting. The organization, which last month called for a national campaign to place armed security in the nation's schools, sent a letter to members of Congress last week saying it planned to be a constructive voice in the debate while emphasizing that "gun bans do not work."
:facepalm:

Thank goodness chancellor Obama was a constitutional law professor.. it obviously really stuck with him.

"To order" and "may bypass" are not synonymous. Semantics is clearly not your strong suit.

Mental health checks would NOT have kept the Newtown shooting from happening... What don't people get about that? He didn't own any of the guns used... :facepalm: I'm not saying it's a bad idea to have better mental checks, but stupid arguement is stupid.

Sheesh, come on! He doesn't have TIME to wait for congress to act! We have to do this now people!

"to order" does not appear in thread title. Reading is clearly not your strong suit.

You are correct. However, the principal still stands.

"Obama To Ignore Congress & Sign" and "May Bypass" are not synonymous. Again, semantics does not appear to be an area of strength for you. I find that alarming considering you claim to be a lawyer. If anything you should excel in that area.

Let's say an executive order comes down with some sort of weapons ban is attached...since when does the potus have domain over the bill of rights?

"The president is going to act," - Biden

You see, this is Joe Biden announcing that Obama is going to ignore Congress and act via executive order. You actually have to read the article not just the title silly dilly.

Wow, "is going to" appears in both the body of the article and the title. Go figure! It's ok, I only took my psych classes for the easy A's.

First thing I thought.

Where is it said that the President is banning firearms? Or that he plans on using an executive order to do so? Why did you sensationalize your thread title into something that's completely outside of the intent of the Administration?
