No surprises here. But he comes right out and says it this time.

He promises another AWB, and to close the private sales "loophole." He will do "everything in his power as President to advance these efforts."

Too bad for him the President doesn't write law, he can only take what the legislators give.

Really? Wait and see what he'll do with executive orders if congress doesn't rubber stamp the Biden proposal.

Yes, he can write law. It's called an Executive Order (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Executive_order).

Attorney General Eric Holder indicated that President Obama might turn to executive orders to implement his agenda on guns in the wake of the Sandy Hook shooting.

“The Obama administration will consider executive actions and specific proposals for legislation as part of its gun policy response to the school massacre in Newtown, Connecticut, U.S., Attorney General Eric Holder said on Wednesday,” per Reuters.
