It is my understanding that the majority of the court cases that were filed to officially challenge President Obama’s eligibility credentials for the Presidency were dropped because the person bringing the suit lacked the “standing” to bring the lawsuit.
From my understanding of those cases, it appears that standing is conferred when someone can affirmatively show that they have been damaged or will be damaged by a person who has fraudulently assumed office. And since gun control will directly damage gun-owning Americans, a lawsuit requesting a temporary restraining order on constitutional grounds might be possible.
One, that the executive order is unlawful because the President has not satisfactorily presented valid credentials – and that experts will testify that the While House birth certificate appears to be a forgery.
Two, that the executive order violates the Second Amendment of the Constitution as there is no specification of types of weapons that may be owned by citizens.
Three, that the use of executive orders usurps and violates the power of Congress to make laws.
And four, President Obama is not a “natural born” citizen as his father was not an American so he is constitutionally ineligible for the office.
Bottom line …
By demanding that the President take action against lawful gun owners, the progressives may have just shot themselves in the proverbial foot – opening up the issue of the President’s constitutional eligibility for office to the United States Supreme Court.
And, the National Rifle Association has the deep pockets and the political will to mount such a battle.
