Wow,,, it's like a breath of fresh air to bump into another working brain. Well said.
The president can not "write law" and he certainly can not contradict established law. The SCOTUS recently upheld that individuals have the right to arms. Period. Obama can say anything he wants, he can't undo that.
And even if he "issues an illegal edict" the states would just ignore it.
