Screw the Constitution – A Senator on Obama’s Executive Actions on Guns

Maybe Ms. Mikulski should carry around a pocket Constitution.

The Obama Administration released a slew of Executive Actions they plan on taking and enforcing in regards to firearms. There is a question of the Constitutionality of some of his actions and this was taken up in a discussion by a subcommittee hearing of the Senate Commerce, Justice, Science and Related Agencies.

Something is amiss on this committee.

Apparently one senator doesn’t think the Constitution should be in play when discussing Obama’s Executive Actions.

Senator Barbara Mikulski (D-Maryland) wants to keep the silly Constitution out of the discussion.

From The Daily Caller:

“So let’s solve the problem,” Mikulski urged. “Let’s not get involved in constitutional arguments, and let’s help our American people be safe and secure in their home, their neighborhood, their school and their house of worship.”

Republicans and gun rights advocates criticized the executive action, alleging that it infringes on the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.

And as Republican senators at Wednesday’s hearing showed, they were unwilling to heed Mikulski’s request to avoid the constitutionality of Obama’s action.

Apparently Senator Mikulski has forgotten about the Oath of Office that she took which requiresConstitution (1) her to uphold the Constitution. She also apparently neglects to remember that the Constitution is what lists the powers of the branches of government.

Clearly Ms. Mikulski needs a refresher course on what is in the Constitution and what her actual role as a senator is in the United States Congress. In order to identify if Obama’s Executive Actions on gun control are indeed constitutional, one would have to actually understand the powers granted to the Executive Branch completely, including Executive Orders.

Maybe Ms. Mikulski should carry around a pocket Constitution so she can refer to it on occasions such as this when she seems unable to understand why it’s necessary to add to the discussion.

    Progressives in the Democratic Socialist Party have no use for the Constitution. They promote what they want, sell it to the masses and it passes. In short, they appeal to mob rule and only the mob that backs them. Representative debate? Not so much.

    When is her expiration date, she sounds as stupid as Pelosi. She is also about the same age she will be 80 this year.

    I would like to see what SHE would do if she had a home invasion with a bunch of thugs whether they were armed or not, and she had no way to protect herself. So many of these self righteous people have their OWN security or possibly are bigger hypocrites and have their OWN weapons, because they at least have enough smarts to realize that criminals are NOT going to abide by ANY gun laws. They could care less about the security of the rest of us law abiding citizens.

      Liberalism is the object manifestation of hypocrisy. Always has been and those who profess it’s use see all other human beings as inferior and subject to their superior intellect. These people fail to realize that their chosen field of expertise does not make them superior as they are always weak in one or more areas. Her obvious contempt for the document that is the single greatest piece of wisdom written by man since the Bible is just another symptom of he greatest weakness; hubris.

    Another corrupt politicians that has broken the oath she took. She not just betraying the constitution she is betraying the legal American citizens. They should call for her to resign immediately. We the American people want politicians to abide by our constitution. Anything less would be a form of treason. There be stiff penalty’s for politicians to break the constitution of the United States of America.
