The Democrats of course want to take the guns away from all the people who did not shoot anyone. They have been fighting against the right to carry for years, and the Orlando massacre is another reason they want to take our rights. The Obama administration isn’t wasting a bit of time, and the White House isn’t ruling out the possibility of bypassing Congress, shoving through an executive order that violates the Second Amendment.
During Earnest’s daily press briefing, a reporter asked, “Can you say that the White House has never reached legal determination that it has exhausted all of its efforts when it comes to unilaterally acting through executive orders and such on gun control? Has it ever reached that determination? Or is it still looking?”
Earnest indicated executive action might still be possible.
“I’m not going to rule out that the president may at some point in the future take steps,” Earnest replied. “But I think we made pretty clear when the president announced a series of executive actions back in January, that he had asked his team to consider every available option for using his executive authority.”
“The president’s team pursued every available option,” Earnest continued. “But again, they’re also always looking. And if there are new ways to use executive authority to keep the American people safe, the president won’t hesitate to use them.”
