The "Nineteen Executive Actions"

Biden: W.H. eying 19 executive actions on guns.
Exactly what these nineteen executive actions are is as yet not spelled out. They may track closely with this Mayors Against Illegal Guns report from 2009. Again, we will have to await events.
Here's the NYT coverage.
(Meanwhile, their editorial page solicits civil war.)
LATER: "Bloomberg urges Obama to defy Congress, implement gun control by executive action."
New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg on Monday told a group of John Hopkins students that President Obama ought to sidestep the wishes of Congress and order swift new executive gun control measures.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg said on Monday that President Obama should implement a series of gun control measures through executive action.
“There are steps that President Obama can take without congressional approval at any time he chooses with just one stroke of the pen,” Bloomberg told the mixed audience of students and scholars, speaking at the “Gun Policy Summit” at John Hopkins University.
Bloomberg’s remarks came hours before President Obama argued in a rare press conference that executive privileges afforded him the power to implement some federal gun control measures without the permission of Congress.
“My understanding is the Vice President is going to provide a range of steps that we can take to reduce gun violence,” President Obama told the White House Press Corps. “Some of them will require legislation, some of them I can accomplish through executive action.”

You can wipe you executive ass with your executive orders. I will not comply. I will immediately become 'the man who owns no guns' when they are issued. All sold. Sorry. No guns here Mr. Agent.

Just heard on Beck that the anointed one will be using provisions under obamacare to require doctors to collect gun ownership info in case of mental health issues.

Bloomberg is an embarrassment to any American.. the midget commie scumbag with an attitude as big as his quisling bodyguards.. and mullah Obama doesnt know the difference between executive action and executive orders or he has been overseeing too many drone murders..

Its one thing to have mistakenly elected tyrants into political office, it's yet another to have elected embarrassingly stupid and assinine tyrants into office who dont have a clue.

get ready

That's odd, because Obamacare specifically forbids doctors from doing that -- a sop thrown specifically to the NRA to prevent them from coming down on it hard.

(Yeah, I know, it's not like the rule of law matters to President Zero. But it's there)
