President Obama’s recent announcement regarding his plans to
make sweeping changes to our nation’s gun laws by presidential executive order
is yet another example of his continual disregard for the United States
Constitution and the separation of powers it set forth to protect the American
people from government by fiat. Our Founding Fathers created a system of divided
government, where the power at the federal government is separated among three
distinct branches: the legislative (Congress), the executive (the president)
and the judiciary (the Supreme Court). Yet, when President Obama has met
resistance from Congress, the check on his powers in the executive branch, he
has found ways to circumvent our system and impose his views and vision through
the use of executive orders in direct contradiction to his campaign promise.
