An open letter to the President of the United States of America
Today President Obama issued several Executive Orders on gun control. The reason, the same one he has always used, Congress has failed to act.
Let me assure you Mr President, Congress has not failed to act. Congress is, at least in this case, doing it’s job well. Voicing the Will of the People that elected them as their representatives.
In your speech Mr President you stated that the member of Congress are more concerned with getting re-elected than they are with passing gun control laws.
This is a half-truth. Yes, members of Congress are concerned with getting re-elected and that is precisely why they have NOT passed any gun control laws. They are listening to their constituents who do not want more government intrusion in their lives.
The majority of people in this country are not who you think they are Mr President. The majority do not want more gun control laws which clearly violate the 2nd Amendment to our Constitution. And Congress does listen to them, but not to you on this matter.
Fortunately those Executive Orders you signed today can easily be undone by the next president with another stroke of the pen. They will be short lived and many may be simply ignored.
This will not deter you though Mr President. You will continue to bypass Congress and attempt to rule by decree using Executive Orders. But this is still a Republic despite your efforts in rebuilding the nation into something else. And we still stand on Liberty for all.
