President Obama signs more than 20-Executive Orders, saying it is time to make a real and lasting difference to stop gun violence. By signing 23 Executive Orders, the President, is in effect, side stepping Congress to take action on his own, enacting tougher penalties for those who lie on back ground checks and ordering the C.D.C. to study the effects of gun violence.
The President even admitting it will be difficult to get the main part of his gun control plan through a sharply divided Congress. Crackdowns such as a ban on military style assault weapons and a 10 round limit on magazine clips can only be enacted by Congressional approval.
The House Speaker, Republican John Boehner, saying he does not see any new legislation on gun control. All but assuring, there is a major showdown looming between Congress and the President over major gun control reform.
