In light of the tragic shootings of late, the President is taking executive action to strengthen loopholes that allow for guns to possibly get in the wrong hands. In response to the recent administrative actions and after each mass shooting, the gun lobby backed by the NRA, uses fear mongering tactics and spews propaganda to have the gun owners of the country believe that that administration is going to revoke 2nd amendment of citizens. This tactic is to spike gun sales and only benefits the manufacturers of firearms , it is not in response to any credible proof that the Administration is going to infringe on 2nd amendment rights.

President Obama is a threat, this is just another example in how he has trampled the constitution. Who is to say he will not trample it again, as he has so many times before. Executive orders are not a way to legislate, they are to be used in a time of crisis. A few mass shootings that could of been resolved by having more armed civilians. Though that is out of the question, he is testing the waters. He could be a threat, he most likely will not get a bill passed for severe gun control due to the Republican controlled legislature, though this makes him no less of a threat. His pen, and his phone have trampled other rights, what's to say he stops there.

The point I will be making if he is trampling the constitution now, who is to say he will not do it again, and again. POTUS is a threat to the constitutional rights of citizens, and by extension the 2nd amendment rights of citizens. I will show evidence of his executive orders' unconstitutional effects, and again his unconstitutional abuse of these orders.

"A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed"-2nd amendment
This forbids all regulations which may infringe on the right to keep and bear arms. Since more licenses for gun sellers and more ATF agents which enforce gun regulations do infringe on this right, that means that Obama is infringing on this. He doesen't have to immediately confiscate all guns for it to be against the 2nd amendment. Though that is what gun regulations lead to.

If AzHaze actually paid attention to ANYTHING that filthy Muslim monkey Obama has done, he'd change his tun pretty darn quick. take California, for example. They created a new law a few weeks ago to where ANY cop can legally take ANYONE'S firearm instantly if ANYONE says that the owner MIGHT do something bad with it. So if you piss off your neighbor by accident, he can go to a cop and lie to him saying that you intend to do something bad with your gun, so you lose thousands of dollars of firearms, ammo, and accessories just because someone lied to a cop and they took everything.
