There is more to this then what you read on the surface....They have been waiting on a Sandy Hook to get this done, and what fuc-ing HYPOCRITES they are... . One way to stop this is for Congress not to fund it.....NO ONE can pass a law by him/herself and bypass Congress. Obama can propose actions, but he CANNOT write an executive order to ban anything!
The Constitution is the source of the authority that gives the CONGRESS the authority to pass any law that any president may ONLY propose.
He cannot pass a law by executive order. He would be guilty of a violation of his oath of office to DEFEND AND PROTECT THE CONSTITUTION.
That IS an impeachable offense
