Sounds like the president is strongly considering new gun control measures via executive order. At least one congressman has already said he would support impeachment hearings should the president proceed with trying to skirt congress.

Fox News is reporting the following.

President Obama is weighing as many as 19 different gun control measures that he could take without congressional approval, as he prepares to unveil a comprehensive plan to address gun violence amid claims from Republicans that he’s overstepping his bounds.

The president could reveal the details of that plan as early as Wednesday. During the final press conference of his first term, Obama said Monday that he will “vigorously pursue” the recommendations.

It’s unclear how many of the 19 options the president would eventually take up. Those options reportedly could include more aggressively enforcing existing gun laws and beefing up national research on guns.
