Following national outcry and heated discussion over gun violence and the need for further gun regulation of some kind after the violent school shooting at Sandy Hook in Newtown Connecticut, President Obama drew up 23 'executive actions' in response. Many in the Republican party and conservative base went crazy over this, citing that the orders were infringing upon the 2nd amendment and the President has no right to "act like a king". In reality, the 23 actions are all reasonable, fairly non-threatening and completely constitutional.
