If this is true, the NRA, the Right and all the gun nuts are going to go ballistic

(Absolutely no pun intended).

Breaking, last evening:

Biden says Obama could use executive orders to restrict guns

(Reuters) - Vice President Joe Biden said on Wednesday the White House is determined to act quickly to curb gun violence and will explore all avenues - including executive orders that would not require approval by Congress - to try to prevent incidents like last month's massacre at a Connecticut school.

Kicking off a series of meetings on gun violence, Biden said the administration would work with gun-control advocates and gun-rights supporters to build a consensus on restrictions. But he made clear that President Barack Obama is prepared to act on his own if necessary.

Maybe it would have been a great idea, however, to not make this announcement the day before the Vice President was to meet with the NRA to discuss possible solutions to the repeated killings of Americans in large quantities in the country.
