For the last few weeks I’ve been waiting for President Obama to enact an Executive Order that would somehow restrict the purchase of firearms for people whose name appears on the federal no-fly list. However, instead of using his pen, he used his cell phone.
It became apparent when Obama and his senior advisor Valerie Jarrett met with former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg to discuss the issue at the White House. Bloomberg, a notorious leader of nanny-state Progressive policies has dedicated billions of his own personal fortune to press for gun control all across America.
Following this meeting, the Obama administration began working on state-by-state bans. For instance, Connecticut Governor Dannel P. Malloy plans to use of an executive order to ban gun sales to people on the federal no-fly list, while New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and New York Senator Charles Schumer are demanding federal government either pass the law or release the lists to state’s so they can create their own bans.
This isn’t jus’ a Eastern U.S. plan either as Nevada lawmakers have been asked by Congressional candidate and current state Senator Ruben Kihuen to take up legislation that ban gun sales to people on the federal no-fly list. Kihuen says the measure would help keep visitors safe when they visit Las Vegas for New Year’s Eve.
Fortunately, two-thirds of legislators in both Republican-controlled houses must agree on calling a session to make it happen. So far no one’s jumped on Kihuen’s band wagon.
“I don’t believe there’s any chance that two-thirds of us are going to agree to call ourselves together for a particular matter,” said State Senator James Settelmeyer. “I think it’s, sadly, pandering.”
And since I don’t have to be polite about it – I’ll call it what it is — bullshit!
