  1. I need some help. Can someone identify which of the 23 executive orders violate the 2nd Amendment?

  2. Hi Rhubarb,

    How about the last four words of the second ammendment, "shall not be infringed". I wouldn't disagree with you that some of these fears, like most fears, are groundless, but that's what happens when you appeal to the emotions. Unfortunately, that's all the President's been able to accomplish is to stir strong feelings on issues instead of producing problem solving polices...you reap what you sew.

  3. Not much help. Which of the 23 orders do you agree with?

  4. Hi Rhubarb,

    I think the data base sharing ideas are helpful, but most are symbolic. The one where he directs himself to appoint a new ATF director silly. This is a tough debate becasue both sides have good issues. All I'm asking that as a law abiding gun owner and user, my constitutional rights as an American get at the same respect from the left as they extend to convicted child molesters, Gitmo detainees, and illegal aliens. I don't think that's asking to much from "gunohobes". Stick with the facts and save the emotions for your therapist.

  6. Can't wait to find out what the President does with his goals for Congress and his 23 orders.
