    One proposal for executive action that will probably garner widespread approval is stepped-up prosecution of people who are found by background checks to have lied when they fill out the federally required gun-purchase questionnaire.
    If this is the best we can get, I hate those damn Congressional nutjobs even worse.

    The scene on November 6, midnight: Barack Obama holds up newspaper reading "Romney defeats Obama" as he heads to give his second term acceptance speech.

      are pretty limited in what they can do.  Ordering the FBI/DOJ to use their limited resources to investigate violations of existing federal gun laws instead of pot growers (by reassigning the personnel currently dedicated to pot) is something Obama can easily do on his own with very little chance of it being challenged in court.

      You have watched Faux News, now lose 2d10 SAN.
