White House: Obama Looking to Act ‘Administratively, Unilaterally’ on Guns White House: Obama Looking to Act ‘Administratively, Unilaterally’ on Guns


White House spokesman Josh Earnest said Tuesday that President Barack Obama is “always” looking for opportunities to act “unilaterally” again on guns, though he would prefer to work with Congress.

“The president’s goal is to look for opportunities to act administratively, unilaterally using his executive authority to try to make our communities safer,” Earnest said, responding to a question the day that a gunman opened fire at an Oregon high school, killing one student and injuring a teacher. “We’re always looking for those opportunities. But none of those opportunities when they present themselves is going to be an acceptable substitute for robust legislative action.”

Police said the shooter at Reynolds High School in Troutdale, Oregon, was later found dead.

After the December 2012 massacre in Newtown, Connecticut, Obama took 23 executive actions to restrict guns. However, an Obama-backed bill for stronger background checks for gun purchases could not even get enough support to pass the Democratic-controlled Senate.

    If ANYBODY has been paying attention… ALL of these mass shooters have either been Democrats or their parents were Democrats.

    The Aurora shooter — a registered Democrat.
    The Arapahoe High School shooter — voiced Socialist Democrat views.
    The Columbine shooter’s parents — were registered Democrats.
    The Virginia Tech shooter —- was a registered Democrat.
    The Sandy Hook shooter’s mother — was a registered Democrat.
    The Boston Bombers — campaigned for Obama.
    The Maryland mall shooter was a begrudged liberal who had personal issues affecting his happiness.
    The UC Santa Barbara shooter was the son of a Hollywood Democrat and listened to the “Young Turks”

    ALL of the Mass shootings were carried out by Deranged Liberals….NOT 1 single Conservative in the bunch

    We need to Stop focusing on Gun Control and START focusing on keeping Guns out of the hands of Deranged Liberals…..
