From Fox News:
Vice President Biden suggested Wednesday that the White House could take unilateral action on gun control, as he kicked off a round of meetings aimed at finding ways to curb gun violence.
Here’s a video of Biden’s remarks.
Part of me wants to say that this is just Joe Biden being Joe Biden. If you’re not familiar with our esteemed Vice President, he has a bit of a history letting his mouth get him into trouble.
Still though, I can’t pretend that this doesn’t worry me just a bit. If the President goes around Congress and acts alone, my guess is that he’ll sign an Executive Order to close the “gun show loophole”, requiring all private transfers to go through an FFL, regulate the sale of ammunition in some way, and enact some sort of reclassification of firearms through the ATF. What this would look like, and how much of this (if any) would be legal remains to be seen.
Keep an eye on this one folks, it could get ugly fast.
