Our would-be emperor has decided to press forward with gun control measures, despite public opinion being against him (note what the public is concerned with…), the House standing pretty much opposed to most measures they might try, states already lining up to nullify any laws passed, and the threat of impeachment if he tries to push unconstitutional bans on guns or ammunition by presidential fiat.

It’s curious that the president is going to blow most of his political capital on a move that is likely to, at the very least, cost the Democrats in 2014, and — should he be stupid enough to make large, unconstitutional moves could lead to open rebellion among citizens in the South and mountain West. (For you coffee klatch types on the coasts — yes, people are that pissed off in fly-over country. They aren’t buying guns in record numbers so they can be stolen by the government…they’re getting ready to use them.)
