President Obama cannot be trusted on the gun control issue. He is trying to pass laws that won’t save peoples’ lives and can’t understand why we aren’t buying into it.
He’s also angry that he can’t blame Republicans as he had hoped.
Obama has a fall back position. He is going to pass Executive Orders to restrict guns.
Vice President Joe Biden told stakeholders involved in gun control during a conference call on Thursday that President Obama will implement new executive orders to restrict guns a day after the Senate rejected the Manchin-Toomey bill that would have implemented universal background checks for gun purchases in the United States.
“Look, I know you’re going to say that I’m just being an optimist and I’m trying to put a good face on this,” Biden told the stakeholders at the conference, which journalists were not invited to attend. “But, you know, I’ve been around here a long time and we’ve already done, because of you, some really good things. Number one, the president is already lining up some additional executive actions he’s going to be taking later this week.”
When President Obama doesn’t like the law, he passes his own law or ignores the ones we have.
We also do not enforce the laws we have. As Ted Cruz said, “in 2010, roughly 48,000 felons and fugitives attempted to illegally purchase firearms. Out of those 48,000, the Obama Justice Department prosecuted only 44.”
