White House Won’t Rule Out Issuing More Executive Orders To Impose Gun Control

posted on June 15, 2016

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said Monday that the Obama administration will not rule out the use of additional, unilateral executive orders to impose more gun control without the consent of Congress, the Washington Free Beacon reports.

In response to a reporter’s question, Earnest said, “I think we made pretty clear when the president announced a series of executive actions back in January that he had asked his team to consider every available option for using his executive authority.” Earnest added, “If there are new ways to use executive authority” to impose more anti-gun dictates, “the president won’t hesitate to use them.”

The key questions are: Just how far will Obama go? And how many years will it take U.S. courts to undo any Obama executive overreach, if they act at all?
