    Default Biden: Obama Might Use Executive Order to Deal With Guns

    Vice President Joe Biden revealed that President Barack Obama might use an executive order to deal with guns.
    "The president is going to act," said Biden, giving some comments to the press before a meeting with victims of gun violence. "There are executives orders, there's executive action that can be taken. We haven't decided what that is yet. But we're compiling it all with the help of the attorney general and the rest of the cabinet members as well as legislative action that we believe is required."
    Biden said that this is a moral issue and that "it's critically important that we act."
    Biden talked also about taking responsible action. "As the president said, if you're actions result in only saving one life, they're worth taking. But I'm convinced we can affect the well-being of millions of americans and take thousands of people out of harm's way if we act responsibly."
    Biden, as he himself noted, helped write the Brady bill.
    Eric Holder was scheduled to be at the meeting that's currently take place at the White House.

    The President asked Biden to head a committee to determine appropriate policy proposals in the wake of the shooting; Biden is meeting with the NRA this week, as well as gun-control advocates. "But he made clear that President Barack Obama is prepared to act on his own if necessary."

    Biden's group is expected to recommend to Congress the reinstatement of an assault weapons ban that expired in 2004.

    The Washington Post has reported the group also will ask Congress for broad restrictions that include tracking the sale and movement of weapons via a national database, and stiffer checks on the mental health of prospective gun buyers.



    .. what's wrong with those policies? I'm all for the right to own a gun (I plan on getting one in the future), but I don't see anything wrong with these ideas. I know a few NRA members back home who support these moves as well.
