what has happened over the last week in politics


simple question I have been out of the country for a week disconnected from news in the united states and really news in general so I missed many of the major news stories from last wednesday. All I know is that Obama issued an executive order banning assault rifles.

TIA

his EO's didn't do anything. He was just asking Congress to ban them and expanded magazines. So...basically much ado about nothing.

He invited the Chroom Gang to the White House and they hit the bong until Michelle got sick of hearing shitty music blaring and told them it was time for the old gang to gtfo.

Only executive orders worth complaining about was him reinforcing doctors to meddle in our personal lives with regards to firearms, and also that cops can now seize your pistols on a routine traffic stop if need be and not return them until a background check has been performed - even if you have a concealed carry permit. There was no timetable given on how long that can take or even if they have to return them.

Oh, and Al Quaeda has taken a bunch of hostages including americans at a fuel plant in Africa.

I googled the hell out of this, and only found that possibility on Alex Jones' Infowars website.

Here's the White House summary of this particular executive order:
quote:

5. Propose rulemaking to give law enforcement the ability to run a full background check on an individual before returning a seized gun.


If this had read "give law enforcement the ability to seize guns to run a full background check on an individual," then I'd be disturbed.

Otherwise, I think "cops can now seize your pistols on a routine traffic stop" is quite a reach.
