Someone hasn't read the Constitution which give the explicit power of law making to the legislative branch. Yes the President can order Executive Action but this is something that easily could've went through Congress. This President has a knack for bypassing Congress. Executive Action/order is supposed to be used only in Emergencies and Gun Control is not an emergency. Background checks have proven time and time again that they don't work. Dylan Roof didn't even get through the background check and he was able to get a gun and shoot up a Church.
