Subject: Unconstitutional Executive Orders
I learned this president will be issuing executive orders to “to tighten regulation on individuals engaged in the business of selling firearms, a mandate euphemistically referred to as closing the gun show loophole.” Source: NewsMax: Executive Order May Ban Private Gun Transfers
First and foremost, as a gun owner of nearly 70 years, I can say with some authority there is no such thing as a “gun show loophole”. When one purchases a firearm of any caliber or any classification from a gun-show vendor, one must produce the requisite identification for the purchase and the applicable license in order to take immediate possession of a new firearm.
Individuals have been selling firearms to other individuals since and before the birth of our nation. Fathers pass them to their sons and daughters. To the best of my knowledge, criminals don’t tend to register firearms.
President Obama openly stated he will be pushing gun control his last year in office.
If Mr. Obama truly cares about the sale of firearms to criminals, then his former Attorney General should be charged accordingly. I remind you of the Fast and Furious gun-walking actions by Mr. Eric Holder who was not prosecuted because this president claims executive privilege.
If the claim of executive privilege excuses a president and his subordinates from prosecution, then Congress owes an apology to former president Richard Nixon, John Erlichman, Virgilio González, Bernard Barker, James McCord, Eugenio Martínez, Frank Sturgis, Gordon Liddy and others involved in the Watergate burglary and subsequent cover ups.
Unmistakably, this tyrannical president has but one goal: the disarmament of law-abiding Americans.
Therefore, I call on you to marshal congressional resources to enjoin the BATF from enforcement of Mr. Obama’s unconstitutional executive orders.
Shall I remind you of the definition of the verb to infringe, the imperative in the Second Amendment penned and ratified by our founding fathers?
Thank you for your prompt attention.
