President Barack Obama announced today during a rare press conference  that he would take “executive action” along with proposing legislation to deal with gun violence.  This is prior to hearing suggestions from the task force on gun violence led by Vice President Joe Biden.  President Obama bypass Congress?  I’m *shocked.*

This has become his modus operandi when faced with items he doesn’t think he can get through Congress.

 

Transcript:

My understanding is the vice president’s going to provide a range of steps that we can take to reduce gun violence.  Some of them will require legislation, some of them I can accomplish through executive action. And so I will be reviewing those today, and as I said, I will speak in more detail to what we’re going to go ahead and propose later in the week. But I’m confident that there are some steps that we can take that don’t require legislation and that are within my authority as president, and where you get a step that, has the opportunity to reduce the possibility of gun violence, then i want to go ahead and take it.

This is blatantly unconstitutional.
