And Obama is not the only one. Any politician in any state who is working to ban firearms is ignoring the Constitution. The Second Amendment applies to all states. The Constitution is the Supreme Law of the Land and it has supremacy over states in those items that are enumerated in it. The 14th Amendment requires all states to provide equal protection under the law and that means that states are not allowed to make rules that violate the Constitution of the US.
States are working on doing just that (and have for a long time). New York is working on banning guns even more than it already does. A lawmaker in Iowa wants to ban AND confiscate firearms (and make it retroactive, ex post facto violation). Not only would this violate the Second Amendment it would also violate the Fourth (illegal seizure of property).
Obama is doing his part to impose tyranny on the citizens of this country. He not only wants to impose strict gun bans but the news reports he will use an Executive Order to impose his will on gun owners and violate the Constitution at the same time.
Remember, it was Barack Obama who criticized George Bush for using Executive Orders which Obama called an abuse of power:
“These last few years we’ve seen an unacceptable abuse of power at home,” then-candidate Obama said in Chicago in October of 2007. “We’ve paid a heavy price for having a president whose priority is expanding his own power.” Washington Examiner
Obama has always been anti gun even though he lied while running for office. He said for people to tell their friends that he would not take our guns and that is what he will be doing, or should I say trying to do.
This will not go unchallenged.
We will not be subjected to a tyrannical government and we will use all means at our disposal to ensure we are not victims of government overreach and illegal actions.
So they can fold that Executive Order up and stick it where the sun does not shine.
Never surrender, never submit.
