Duncan on Possible "Executive Action" on Gun Control

COLUMBIA, SC - On Wednesday, Vice President Joe Biden revealed that President Obama was strongly considering taking executive action on guns. "The President is going to act,” Biden said. “There are executive orders -- executive action that can be taken. We haven't decided what that is yet. But we're compiling it all with the help of the Attorney General and all the rest of the cabinet members as well as legislative action, we believe is required."

South Carolina Congressman Jeff Duncan responded sharply by stating “The Founding Fathers never envisioned Executive Orders being used to restrict our Constitutional rights. We live in a republic, not a dictatorship.”

“The President should not be able to act unilaterally when it comes to our Constitutional rights. Executive Orders were meant as a way for the president to implement legislatively passed laws, not to make law,” said Duncan.

“I will use every means at my disposal to combat the agenda of the Executive branch to undermine our Second Amendment rights. I will also fight any legislative action that is taken to implement more gun control. Americans don’t want their Second Amendment freedoms restricted in any way and I will continue to fully support the right to bear arms for all law abiding citizens,” said Duncan.

It was on the news several years ago. It's funny how nothing has been said in the past few years... just like people will say nothing when they come to collect their guns. We live in a mixed up world, for sure! The time will come when they even use the words we say to drag us out of our homes and do away with us in the streets, but we have places like this spread out across the country! I didn't know there were that many!

First, this is not a difference but a similarity if you are refering to the fact that the weapons involved would all be considered semi automatic: a gas operated rifle and recoil operated pistol in the Conn. shootings and a double action revolver in the Oakland Elementary incident.

My point is this person could have possibly used a pump action shotgun (not semi automatic btw) to release 18 rounds and most likely kill even more people. How about a bomb (already illegal), steak knife, baseball bat, or claw hammer? People who want to kill will kill. Legislation will not stop them.

What about rocks and sticks? Do those need banning as well?

Mr. Johnson, no one supports the "killing of innocent people and animals" and your statement that anyone does is simply a left wing looney comment spouted in an attempt to garner sympathy and to further gun control laws. It is also a stupid and offensive statement. You have not helped your cause.

Since the founders of our nation did not stipulate single shot/single action weapons in the 2nd Ammendment, then any and all weapons are protected by the ammendment. Your assertions are a flawed attempt to "read between the lines" wording that is not there.

They were certainly aware that multishot weapons could be developed in the future as that was always a goal of weapons development from the time of the first stone thrown in anger. How many stones could be accurately thrown in the least amount of time would determine the outcome of a battles and that spurred weapons development through the ages and into the present.
