Executive Orders are not mentioned in the constitution, therefore they do not apply to the people. The are an internal mechanism for use in managing the executive branch.
While you're right about executive orders, what were issued by the President were executive actions.

Essentially, the President doesn't have to do much of anything. Under 925(d)(3), the ATF can make the determination on their own authority.
