President Obama is looking into executive orders to help prevent mass shootings in America.
The President vowed last month that a new task force headed up by Biden will provide “concrete proposals” by the end of the month to reduce gun violence.
VP Joe Biden told reporters that the President is “going to act. Executive orders, executive action, can be taken.”
** A South Carolina Congressman replied, “The Founding Fathers never envisioned executive orders being used to restrict our constitutional rights. We live in a republic, not a dictatorship. The president should not be able to act unilaterally when it comes to our constitutional rights. Executive orders were meant as a way for the president to implement legislatively passed laws, not to make law.”
Biden also said legislative action is needed.
