In my understanding he can't ban guns through executive order. Even if he tried it would be challenged in the courts as it's in violation of the 2nd Amendment. Also the House would overturn that executive order. Executive Order does not trump the constitution. Executive Order is used to change policies in the departments and divisions under the federal government jurisdiction correct? From what I read he could use EO to strengthen background checks, outlaw private sales requiring all gun sales and transfers go through FFL dealer, etc.

By the time one goes through the court system and brings a law suit based upon the ACTIONS of the govenment and Obama (confiscation of guns/ammo etc or unlawful intrusion) the DAMAGE will have already been done. Guns/Ammo will have already been confiscated and the names and locations of those who do NOT comply will be "in hand" How would going through the courst prevent that from happening. When in virtually every case the courts say the act has to have already happened BEFORE one can bring suit.

The dog and pony show of the SCOTUS is just that. They PRETEND to review based upon constitutional law, then double talk and spin to ENACT law from the bench putting on the "appearance of legitimacy" so the general public will comply...and frighten many more into compliance lest they face the long arm of the HEAVILY ARMED LAW....and the show goes on. Never the less, anything they do regarding this issie is patently ILLEGAL....as was ObamaCare. Pretending otherwise doesn't change it. All that happens is that John and Jane Q. Public are now on their own and the so-called system of checks and balances will have been eroded...ALL WITH DELIBERATE INTENT.

there IS NO "judicial review";
one must break the law,be arrested,tried and convicted,then while sitting in jail,appeal your way up through the appellate courts,and MAYBE the Supreme Court will agree to hear your case. there's no guarantees.
All this happens at YOUR expense.
FEDGOV has unlimited time,money,and resources for this appeals business,they can delay and delay,at your expense,....while you're sitting in jail,of course.

this is how the Traitors manage to keep unconstitutional laws on the books.
