Go ahead, with any executive order or legislation you want. Saying you’re going to take guns and actually getting your hands on them will be two completely different things. I wish you luck, finding the men/women, who are stupid enough to walk up and demand everyone’s guns.

That scumbag Holder should be in jail for his role in Fast and Furious.

Confiscation *will* trigger succession and armed revolution – 1775 proved that already.

Executive action to override the Constitution? Can someone remind me why we have a legislative and judicial branch, please?

So Holder allows the supply of guns to Mexican cartel but wants to take them away from law abiding US citizens? What is wrong with this picture?

Why bother having a Congress if it can have an “end run” performed on it? Why bother with elections? Why bother voting?

Do I get that right, that we are talking about high capacity ammo clips and semi-/automatic rifles? You need them what for? Pumping 50 bullets into the woods, hoping 1 of them hits a deer? Cause you lack any aiming skills? Just for firing at a some tin cans? When was the last time you had to defend yourself against Russians, Chinese, Godzilla, Zombies or Aliens? In Real Life. In summary, you want these weapons for fun or paranoia, two morally little valuable assets when you compare them to the many casualities caused by the availability of these arms. Mentally deranged people (you won’t notice at first) can get them. Is that not enough? And then sombody comes up and tells about ‘law-abiding citizens’ need their assault rifles. It’s not the good and healthy guys, that make the problems. It’s children, instable teens, mentally disturbed adults. And if I had to decide between 1 assultrifle fun + 1000 dead kids or 1 ‘anything other’- fun + 1000 alive kids, I surely vote for the kids lives. And you?
