    W didnt use executive order to trample the constitution, he just got the patriot act passed which did a pretty good job of it.

    Zeus has no idea what color underware I wear. He may know the color underware of some other guy, BUT HE HAS NO IDEA OF THE COLOR OF MINE!! The last thing I need to do is to defend W because HE IS NOT PRESIDENT NOW!! Your point is to change the point, nothing more, nothing less.

    Wasn't McDonald a ruling against Illinois? Essentially saying the 2nd Amendment did apply to the states?

They can most likely make you take responsibility for keeping your guns safely out of the hands of mentally ill friends and family, in other words - punish you for not being responsible.

    Right... Just like he makes sure the current laws regarding illegal immigration, illegal drug use, gun walking across the border, etc...etc... are enforced. I'm sure that's a TOP PRIORITY for this POTUS.

    I looked over the list and I must admit some I have no idea as to what they pertain. However I did not see any that would be defined as MAKING LAW. They appeared to be administrative changes TO CARRY OUT THE LAW. There is a big difference. If the President were to make such changes to more efficiently carry out the law, I have no problem. If they were to define what an assault weapon is AND THEN OUTLAWED THEM then I would consider that as making law. Big difference.

    I think in in my original statement that I was not a fan of executive orders to accomplish things that the Congress should otherwise do. I'm just saying it ain't new. I suspect this is more threat than promise to get Congress to jump.
