The only rumor that I find to be substantive is from an anonymous aide saying that Obama might direct funding towards mental health care with an executive order. Biden did seem to imply that an executive order is clearly on the table to address the gun control aspect, but Biden strikes me as an ineffective bumbler put there to create hype. In any event you would think that the administration knows full well how dangerous it would be for them to attempt to enact gun control legislation via EO.
