Well Obama announced his EO. What now? How will affect us? I didn't see anything that appeared to be detrimental to us, as gun owners, however, I don't like the government trying to infringe on our 2nd Ammen. rights, even in the smallest manner. Will the Orders have serious repercussions, or will it Just fizzle out to nothing? YOUR opinion?
