Even then, I don't think they'll be approving the sky high fees citizens would have to pay in order for the registration debacle to be supported.
If it were up to me, the word "got" would be deleted from the English language.

Newsflash from vp joe biden

Just heard Newt Gingrich speak on Greta, he states that a pres. can sign an eo but he himself cannot enforce it, has to be done by an agency, fbi/atf. Congress then has to approve funding and therein lies the rub, congress with holds funding. So then what... well "its them repubs" they want blood in the streets, blah blah blah and so it goes, but it's not my fault! Seems our current pres will not own anything, its delegate, delegate, bring me something to sign. Can't blame him for anything that fails that way I suppose. TL

Let's not have duplicative discussions. The executive order thread is here.
"It is long been a principle of ours that one is no more armed because he has possession of a firearm than he is a musician because he owns a piano. There is no point in having a gun if you are not capable of using it skillfully." -- Jeff Cooper
