    Timely post, as I just read about a rarity – a reasoned Dem Senator from ND who stated that legislation to grab guns doesn’t have the required support. Which led me to a question (I think I need to take up Hillsdale College’s generous offer to study the Constitution): how, outside of a national emergency, could a president legitimately circumvent the Constitution with an Executive Order?

    Would anyone have an explanation?

    I can’t explain it because my understanding is that an E.O. can only be enforced within the structure of the Executive Branch. Not on the population at large as if Congress wrote it – otherwise, where is the separation of powers? Why do the other 535 ‘supposed’ Representatives have positions at all?

    Mistaking it for an actual law is the prob – as I see it.

    I’m thinking eventually they’ll run out of employees, once they start seeing the hazard and switch to using drones.

    It would be an ugly civil backlash/war. At least half of police would refuse to enforce. No way current military would go along.

    When O-DICK-tater and his fascist Democrats try….we will find out if AMERICA still lives in the soul of the people.

    That is the 16 trillion dollar question grayscape. I desperately need to believe it still does within enough of us, but reality demonstrates that the number is declining daily!

    Organization would be imperative. And it would need to happen fast. They must have other agencies in mind other then just local P.Ds. I believe this has had some thought put into it. For sure they’ll use DHS.

    @ rosalindJ – “legitimate” is not in Obastard’s lexicon

    @ nutjob – Which is where the Mossberg comes in, unless it’s a high-altitude drone. Then maybe a scoped 30-06?

    I visualize a couple of dumbass, fat blackstards in brown shirts knocking on my door, setting off the dog (Boobie, part chowchow, HATES them) to warn me, not very prcaticed on the quick draw, thinking their Kevlar® will protect them from a head shot . . .

    I foresee a national epidemic of police reports of “stolen” guns.

    In the article, “… and maybe 40,000-100,000 Americans will form small independently-functioning active resistance cells,” describes what?

    A MILITIA, as the framers knew it.

    The E.O. will be to declare “assault weapons” as schedule II in the same category as hand grenades and thus illegal.
