I think we're going to hear a lot junk, possibly to get gun folk all stirred up and making noise and then point their finger at us in all our hysterics and ultimately to try and put us to sleep. Then one day we will wake up and there will be a new executive order... Congress can act against executive orders though it rarely happens, so we're probably sunk at that point. It's an eventuality we must be looking for.

John M. Snyder, former National Rifle Association magazine editor, is public affairs director of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms and a director of the Council for America. Because he is the senior gun rights advocate in Washington, his is also know as the "Gun Dean." He is the founder of the St. Gabriel Possenti Society and author of "Gun Saint."
Yeah I would tend to take what he has to say seriously....
He talks about himself in the third person... lovely... I'm gonna take what he says to the bank... Here's my own miniblog on John M. Snyder:
"John M. Snyder is a self important - has been - washed up, previous national magazine editor who is named on the boards of some very right wing conservative yack banks (as opposed to think tanks, where people actually, you know, think)." Oakchas wrote, here today.
"According to obvious evidence," Oakchas continued, "Mr. Snyder simply likes to hear himself talk, or read his own prolific scribblings."
Checking into secret information available only on the NRA website, Oakchas further discovered that Mr. Snyder does not come up in the search feature of the NRA website. Oakchas had this, to say about that, "Balderflop! Man's [referring to Mr.Snyder. ed] a self published wonk full of fluff, and hot air."
Oakchas is a first class contributor to the finest Concealed Carry firearm websites in America, a legend in his own mind, and far better looking than Mr. Snyder, to boot... anything he says is worth the electronic paper it's written on.
I had heard that Obama was already over GWB as far as number of EO's. But I went and investigated and found this interesting tidbit from the Federal Register (Executive Orders Disposition Tables Index ).
The real standout is Roosevelt.
As of October 9, 2012 Obama 139 GW Bush 290 Clinton 363 G Bush 165 Reagan 380 Carter 319 Ford 168 Nixon 345 Johnson 323 Kennedy 213 Eisenhower 481 Truman 893 Roosevelt 3466 Hoover 995
Now, that being said, it wouldn't surprise me if the big O tries to pull something off using an EO.
I heard on the radio and looked it up when I got home. Here is the Fox news site also

Only thing I know is I don't trust lawyers, politicians, or preachers...
Anything that comes from Faux News has to be true.
Time to stock up on revolvers, lever action and pumps.
