This is day four of my look at the twenty three executive orders on gun control enected by President Obama.
4. Direct the Attorney General to review categories of individuals prohibited from having a gun to make sure dangerous people are not slipping through the cracks.
So the Attorney General needs a to do list? What exactly are the existing categories of individuals prohibited? Does this give the Attorney General broad powers to create new categories of “dangerous people”?
I think this one would need a lot more clarification. This synopsis of this executive order, as written, is entirely too vague and gives too much power to one office indiscriminately. This, without major oversight, would tip the balance of power that the government is based on. I believe this one really needs to be reviewed by congress and the Supreme Court.
Stay tuned for the next executive order.
