President Obama defended forthcoming Executive Orders on gun policy today, actually saying his mandates will be “consistent with the Second Amendment.”
Many believe the orders will be Unconstitutional…
According to The Hill:
“President Obama defended his plan to take executive action on guns on Monday, saying the proposals are within his legal authority and consistent with the Constitution.
“I’m … confident that the recommendations that are being made by my team here are ones that are entirely consistent with the Second Amendment and people’s lawful right to bear arms,” the president said following an Oval Office meeting with Attorney General Loretta Lynch.
The president huddled with Lynch, FBI Director James Comey and other law enforcement officials to finalize a raft of measures that sidestep Congress to tighten the nation’s gun laws.
Obama did not announce the specific steps he plans to take but said they would be rolled out “over the next several days.” He is expected to broaden background check requirements by forcing sellers at gun shows and on the Internet to register as federally licensed gun dealers.”
