Keene to Newsmax: Obama Presidency 'At Risk' If He Acts Alone on Gun Ban

National Rifle Association President David Keene tells Newsmax that President Obama could be violating the Constitution if he circumvents Congress and imposes gun control by executive order — and his presidency will be “at risk” if he proceeds.

Keene also says gun control advocates will ultimately fail in their efforts to ban assault weapons, despite Obama’s “rabid advisers” who will push the ban.

And he asserts that the administration is asking the “wrong questions” in the wake of the Newtown, Conn., shootings and is instead seeking to politicize the tragedy.

Keene assumed the presidency of the NRA and its 4-million-plus members in May 2011. Previously he served as chairman of the American Conservative Union from 1984 to 1991.

In an exclusive interview with Newsmax TV on Tuesday, Keene reacts to the president’s warning on Monday that he would take “executive action” to impose gun control.

“Our concern is the same that most Americans should have whenever a president tries to circumvent Congress, because what the president is really saying is ‘I’m going to do these things myself, and I’m not going to submit them to the representatives of the people.’

“We don’t know what he’s going to try to do by executive order. There are obviously some things he can’t do and there are some things he shouldn’t be doing, but in order to implement these various changes he’s going to have to go to Congress to get the money to fund it. So there are going to be votes on these things, there is going to be a debate in Congress, and our members and other gun owners, and believers of the Second Amendment, are going to have the right to be heard.”

No, it's not "at risk", unless we have some DNC members that vote for impeachment.

Pigs flying on their own is more likely than that happening.

Democrats want this to happen, their so-called "support" for the Second Amendment notwithstanding.

The Republicans in the House might stand up for gun rights. Depends on how much pressure we put on them.

At this point, since BHO was re-elected, we don't have much in the way of leverage in any case.

Agreed. And republicans better get their shit together to not only KEEP the house, but strengthen it and hopefully retake the senate.

If we lose the house and senate with Obama as president, then we are utterly and irrevocably fucked as a nation for at least 15 years before the shit-spaghetti ball they create gets unraveled.

It's over. July 4,1776 a historical date.
As is 11/6/2012. The beginning and the end.

3 choices:

1. Fight
2. Flight
3. Cower and capitulate.

Funny how all the Onablers have vanished.

True, to a point. However, how many Democrats only supported Obama to toe the party line? If they see a chance to get someone else in, they might go for it.

Also, I would hope that there were at least a handful of Democrats that would realize the dangers of Obama's presidency. The ugly truth to them if they support Obama's actions is that the next president could just as easily undo all of this - and make it worse on the Democrats, all by using the same principles Obama is using. It wouldn't be ethical, moral, or legal, but the precedent would be set.

Just going to have to wait and see what he does.
I'm sure he is going to ban the importation of most firearms, mags and, ammo which I believe he can lawfully do.
