Obama Hints at Possible Executive Order on Gun Control in his Speech in Mexico

Obama MexicoTea Party News Network – by Greg Campbell

At a speech in Mexico City, Mexico, today, President Obama discussed the violence fostered by Mexican drug cartels and cited “gun smuggling” as a cause of the bloodshed while omitting the significant role his administration has played in fueling the carnage through Fast and Furious.

Further, speaking to our neighbors to the South, Obama pledged that he would do “everything in [his] power” to pass gun control legislation, possibly signaling an intent to rule via executive order on the matter.  

Obama spoke to students in Mexico City about a range of issues including his promise to pass immigration reform and to enact gun control policies. In Mexico, it’s estimated that up to 60,000 people have died in the last four years due to gun violence that has largely been fostered by drug wars between heavily-armed rival cartels.

Speaking of Americans, Obama stated,

“We recognize that most of the guns used to commit violence here in Mexico come from the United States.  In America, our Constitution guarantees our individual right to bear arms, and as President I swore an oath to uphold that right—and I always will.  At the same time, as I’ve said back home, I will continue to do everything in my power to pass common sense gun reforms that keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people—reforms that will save lives in both our countries.  Meanwhile, we’ll keep increasing the pressure on the gun traffickers who bring illegal guns into Mexico, and we’ll keep putting these criminals where they belong—behind bars.”

However, in truth, if Mr. Obama were interested in pursuing those who illegally aid in the supply of the “military-style assault weapons” that he and his administration so loathe, he would not cloak Attorney General Eric Holder in executive privilege to shield him from prosecution in his role in Fast and Furious which pumped thousands of weapons to drug cartels.

Instead, President Obama never mentioned Fast and Furious or his administration’s role in the violence that haunts Americans and Mexicans near the border. The investigation of the ATF operation that resulted in hundreds of deaths in Mexico and the murder of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry has been stonewalled by officials within the Obama Administration, but documents show that the ATF tried to use the operation to make the case for stricter gun regulation. While the potential false-flag operation failed due to the operation’s exposure, President Obama has still cited gun violence in Mexico as a compelling reason for stricter gun control measures.

Yesterday, President Obama gave a similarly-themed speech where he called the recent failures to pass gun control legislation the “first round” and pledged to keep pushing his agenda:

“The last time we had major gun legislation it took six, seven, eight tries to get passed. Things happen somewhat slowly in Washington, but this is just the first round.”

Obama has hinted that he is eager to pass legislation through the legislative body but has, seemingly, warmed to the idea that gun control measures can be enacted through executive orders. In January, Obama signed 23 executive orders concerning gun control and has hinted at his belief that such power resides in the executive.

  1. ANYTHING that this communist usurping alien signs has as a much legal authority, as if Daffy Duck signed it. I don’t give a F what the scumbag signs. The LAW, and my Law, is the Constitution.

    1. Executive Orders only apply to the executive branch of the gov. They are not binding anywhere else.

      Most people are completely unaware of this.

      1. I always thought that a “executive order” was only to be used in times of a “national emergency”. correct me if I am wrong. I am sure that I have heard that from some where. I don`t know much but I do pay attention to what I do hear and have been told and I have been around some very very smart people.

  2. Obama more and more makes me think of the RECONSTRUCTION period after the Civil War …… stupid, lazy corrupt his family looting vacation funds ….. and god only knows what we do not yet know about. How come he suddenly seems to have a lot more money then he did? where is it from?

  3. Better be ready to die for that freedom. That may include shooting a shit load of cops to keep it and atf agents. Those will be the first to will deprive it from you. Insurgency is becoming very popular since this is the next generation in true patriots. aim for the capitals and people working in them. They are against you

    1. anon34 – I and one hell of a lot just like me, ARE “ready to die” for our freedom. How does that expression go? If you’re not willing to die for your freedom, then you don’t deserve it? Something like that.

      We don’t just show up on these boards talking tough – we are GD sure ready to deliver our promise of instant, and very lethal attacks when the enemy attacks us.

      We know what is coming. I hope the enemy does. Personally, I think the cowardly zion ists and their spineless goyim slime with whom they collude, have NO IDEA how much rage and raw fury there is waiting to explode in their faces, and the faces of their families when they come at us.

      The vapor of rage which permeates every square foot of land is very thick.

      They will find out just what “thick” means.

      1. All the crap these misrepresentatives pass makes me want to puke,
        They take more and more of our hard earned money, then they want to chip away at our God given rights,
        What makes me furious is that there are so many stupid f#@king sheep willing to give these hard won freedoms away without so much as a thought as to how many men and women have given their life and limb to gain and retain those rights.
        I say pass all the laws you want, time for a reckoning.

  4. Hey…..I guess he could issue an executive order requiring us all to wear baseball caps! He thinks he’s a king…and I would love to crown him!!

  5. “Obama Hints at Possible Executive Order on Gun Control in his Speech in Mexico”… Perhaps its time to start impeachment proceedings.
