President Obama’s executive actions on gun control exceeded the scope of his Constitutional authority relative to Congress while undermining the right to own a firearm. Congress needs to make it clear that these proposals need legislative approval to go forward.
As the leader of the executive branch the President has the authority to implement laws and craft regulations through federal agencies. If the President went too far, the courts will step in — this toothless resolution is a waste of Congress' time.
