Federals Tighten Grip, Congress Incapable


The Federal government has bypassed Congress once again and put in place 2 new executive orders curbing gun ownership. One of the measures forbids the import of military-grade surplus:

The second executive order announced Thursday aims to keep military-grade weapons off the streets by prohibiting private entities from re-importing firearms that the United States previously provided to foreign allies. Currently, the law requires U.S. government approval before these weapons can be re-imported.

So, while the Fed can hand them out to whoever it wishes, be they Jihadists or drug cartels, the citizens of the States- you know, the people who actually pay for the government- are denied them. The reason? We just aren’t responsible enough:

Today, the Administration is announcing a new policy of denying requests to bring military-grade firearms back into the United States to private entities…This new policy will help keep military-grade firearms off our streets.

The White House even gleefully thumps its own chest on it’s snubbing of Congress:

Even as Congress fails to act on common-sense proposals, like expanding criminal background checks and making gun trafficking a federal crime, the president and vice president remain committed to using all the tools in their power to make progress toward reducing gun violence,

The “power” that the White House refers to itself defines. How else could Obama pass gun measures or declare war on foreign powers, both without Congress’ consent?

This is a representative government? Where the Executive ignores our representatives? Despotic at home and aggressive abroad, that’s the “United States.”
