FOX NEWS is totally freaking out over the possibility President Obama may issue a Presidential Executive Order coupled with the strict gun regulation program Vice President Joe Biden is preparing to release.

FOX NEWS' Sean Hannity, Bill O'Reilly and Greta Van Sustern scrambled as many "legal Eagles" as they could find Wednesday night in a move designed to sabotage Obama's Presidential Executive Orders.

What is a presidential executive order?

An executive order is a directive by the President of the United States that has the power of a federal law. Presidents might issue executive orders to create committees or organizations like the Peace Corps. In general, though, Presidents use executive orders to direct and manage how the federal government operates.

Can executive orders be overturned?
Congress may attempt to overturn an executive order by passing legislation (a bill) that opposes the order. However, the President can veto that bill, and Congress would then need to override that veto to pass the bill. Also, the Supreme Court can declare an executive order to be unconstitutional.
FOX NEWS and a gaggle of lawyers were like little kids whistling in the dark in a dark forest trying desperately to explain how the 2nd Amendment, "the right to bear arms," would not be affected by the Presidential Executive Order if President Obama decides to enact the order.

Vice President Joe Biden will be meeting with representatives from the National Rifle Association (NRA) and anti-gun groups on Thursday as part of the plans Biden is hammering out on what steps will be taken to stop the mass murders that have been taking place using military-style firearms and ammunition that comes in clips that hold up to 100 rounds of ammo.

The drastic measures are being taken following the mass murder of 20 first grade students at the Sandy Hook Elementary school by Andy Lanza who used a Bushmaster semi-automatic rifle to kill the children. 
Law enforcement authorities have reported some of the children were shot at least 16 times from close range with the Bushmaster semi-automatic rifle using ammo that explodes upon impact.

Meanwhile, the NRA is trying to shift the blame for the mass murders away from guns and blame it on mentally ill people, violent movies and television shows and games that feature violence. 
The NRA wants every teacher in America to be armed, but this doesn't take into account the mass killings that took place in a movie theater or a college dorm in Virginia.

The NRA also has avoided talking about how an adult set fire to his own home two weeks ago and then called the local fire department and when the fire department arrived at the scene of the fire the man started firing at them with a Bushmaster AR-15 semi-automatic rifle like the one used in the Sandy Hook school massacre killing two firefighters and seriously wounding two others.

It is estimated that in 2012 over 30,000 people were killed by guns in America.
If this were happening in any other civilized society in the world, the government would call it what it is: an epidemic.
