    I heard a thud-thud-thud on my door last night. I assume it was Obama trying to kick my door in to take my guns. Good thing I reinforced that baby right after the election. Stoopit Obama.

    Not decrees old boy. They are called Executive Orders, quite popular with the Bush administration I understand.

    I know american liberals just hate all media except "approved" ones like the huffington post. Anywhoo, so much for the democratic process. Thank you very much democratic party members.

    Obama Looking For Ways Around Congress On Gun Policy

    With Reporting By Lucia Graves
    WASHINGTON -- Faced with a Congress hostile to even slight restrictions of Second Amendment rights, the Obama administration is exploring potential changes to gun laws that can be secured strictly through executive action, administration officials say.
    The Department of Justice held the first in what is expected to be a series of meetings on Tuesday afternoon with a group of stakeholders in the ongoing gun-policy debates. Before the meeting, officials said part of the discussion was expected to center around the White House's options for shaping policy on its own or through its adjoining agencies and departments -- on issues ranging from beefing up background checks to encouraging better data-sharing.

    Administration officials said talk of executive orders or agency action are among a host of options that President Barack Obama and his advisers are considering. “The purpose of these discussions is to be a productive exchange of good ideas from folks across the spectrum,” one official said. “We think that’s a good place to start.”
    Earlier in the day, House Democrats joined New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg to offer another possible starting point, announcing legislation that would make fundamental changes to the nation’s gun background check system. Sponsored by Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-N.Y.), a longtime gun control advocate, the bill mirrors one introduced late last month by another New York Democrat, Sen. Chuck Schumer.
    “Too often, any serious discussion about guns devolves into ideological arguments that have nothing to do with the real problem,” Bloomberg, a co-founder of the coalition Mayors Against Illegal Guns, told reporters at a press event outside the Capitol. “Our coalition strongly believes in the Second Amendment. We also know from experience that we can keep guns away from dangerous people without imposing burdens on law-abiding gun owners."
    For gun control advocates, however, executive action remains a more promising -- albeit more limited -- vehicle for reform than Congress. On Monday, The Huffington Post first reported that the Justice Department was convening meetings with groups from across the ideological spectrum in an effort to chart potential policy changes to Second Amendment law.........

    Really? Please name the executive order considered by the bush administration to curtail firearms ownership? I'd be interested in hearing about that one.

    I'm guessing we'll know when your "leader" feels it's necessary for us "common folk" to know.

    Where did i say such an EO existed? I merely was kind enough to explain that the thread was about an Executive Order and not a decree. Apparantly you were not aware of that.

    IF such an order was only CONSIDERED by the Bush administration, but not written and signed how would we even know it existed?
