In its literature, the Convention of the States organization misstates historical facts and misunderstands the law of agency.
Americans overwhelmingly rejected bizarre threats from an increasingly unpopular Obama to rule by decree, surveys revealed after his State of the Union speech. Despite trying to artificially divide America into different collectivist classes in need of his supposedly benevolent protection and assistance — an age-old ploy used by statists sometimes referred to as “divide and conquer” — women, black leaders, Hispanic activists, small-business owners, and other members of collectivist categories rejected the narrative, too.

Following Obama’s radical State of the Union threats to bypass Congress and impose his unconstitutional agenda on America by decree, more than a few lawmakers in both chambers have expressed outrage and announced efforts to rein in the administration. Among other comments, Republican congressmen and senators said the “lawless” and “imperial presidency” of Obama must be restrained. Other legislators said the president was behaving like a “king” or even a “socialistic dictator” — and that the pledge to violate his oath of office and rule by decree needed to be urgently addressed.
After a devastating 2013 for Obama and perceptions of his radical agenda — indeed, a majority of the public now says he is incompetent and a threat to freedom — the president promised in his State of the Union speech to accelerate the imposition of central planning and economic fascism on America. If Congress refuses to cooperate, he will use “executive action.” From seizing more land and attacking gun rights to redistributing wealth and working to get the “youngest children” into government care that “they need,” the president vowed to impose his extreme vision — fundamentally at odds with the U.S. Constitution — all on his own if need be.
At his January 28 State of the Union Speech, Obama is expected to formally announce the acceleration of his unconstitutional plot to “fundamentally transform” America — regardless of whether or not Congress approves. Instead of adhering to the U.S. Constitution as his oath of office requires, the president and his top aides have said repeatedly that Obama’s radical agenda will be foisted on the nation via decree — so-called “executive orders” and “executive actions” — if lawmakers do not promptly roll over. Critics and members of Congress, however, are already outraged.
After Connecticut enacted one of the most draconian gun-control regimes in America, official estimates suggest that the overwhelming majority of the citizens targeted by the latest assault on gun rights failed to comply. Now, despite resistance by the governor, state lawmakers are “scrambling” to come up with a possible amnesty plan allowing gun owners to register past the deadline.
Requiring microstamping on new guns sold in California is a way for anti-gunners to ban handguns without actually banning them.
