I'm thinking since there's already a high-cap ban in certain states like CA, he will attempt to expand it nationwide.

He may also make background checks mandatory for every firearm sale including private sales. This would be tough but if caught, they will institute some sort of punishment/fine/jailtime.

Another is by possibly taxing or raising prices on ammo and mags, and limiting ammo purchases i.e. 6boxes of ammo per person at a time...
Absolutely none of that can be done by Executive Order.

If you got the impression from your brother that Obama could do all that by Executive Order, either you didn't fully understand your brother or he needs a bit more education on Executive Orders.

BTW, I finished law school over 35 years ago and practiced law for more than thirty years, until I retired in 2007.
