    Use an executive order to get the gun rules laid out immediately and follow up with the slower legislative process.  

    Executive Orders are not always a panacea, but they do offer bright lines.

      They shouldn't be disregarded, but we shouldn't fool ourselves into thinking they're any replacement for legislative action.

      Machine gun bullets became the bloody baptizers/ And the falcon 'copters don't care if someone's the wiser/ But the boy in the swamp didn't know he was killed by advisers
