If, Congress doesn't pass the bill, Obumphuck will do as usually does and put out a Royal Edict (aka an Executive Order) requiring Federal, State, and Local Law Enforcement to collect the weapons. The man is a Pyotr I Velikii, Freiderich II der Grosse, Louis XIV le Grande Roi-Soleil, Imperator Gaius Julius Caesar Octavianus Divi Filius Augustus etc, wannabe.

Exec, orders cannot override the Const. or Congressional law.

No but the EO can implement a course of action that bypasses Congress. Very easily done. and Obama will do so as well.

See "prosecutorial discretion" associated with ICE for a prime example of how this works.

Surrounded by law enforcement officers, mayors, police chiefs, gun “safety” groups, Democratic legislators and a display of semi-automatic rifles and pistols, California Senator Dianne Feinstein introduced her new gun control legislation today on Capitol Hill.

“This is a tough battle,” Feinstein said in her opening remarks. “Some of us have been working to reduce gun violence for decades.”

The event kicked off with Rev. Gary Hall preaching about gun violence to the cameras, a mix of church and state liberals typically frown upon unless it serves a certain political purpose.
