Any American President could have done it, and every past President should have done it, from the very first illegal establishment of the very first unconstitutional gun law, regulation, adjudication, rule or order, at any level, anywhere in the USA.
The constitution nowhere grants the supreme court, the presidency or the congress any interpretive authority over the constitution that is in any way superior to the interpretive authority over the constitution of any other of the three coequal branches of the federal government. They all have equal interpretive authority; that's what coequal means.
The constitution is written in simple, direct, self-interpreting English.
The constitution rules the three coequal branches; none of them rule it.
The Congresss, solely and exclusively, legislates constitutional law.
The Presidency, solely and exclusively, enforces constitutional law.
The Supreme Court, solely and exclusively, adjudicates constitutional law.
If it isn't constitutional the congress cannot legislate it.
If it isn't constitutional the Presidency cannot enforce it.
If it isn't constitutional the Supreme Court cannot adjudicate it.
Marbury v Madison quite correctly established the principle of judicial review. It is a gross misinterpretation to assume from that precedent that the court and only the court can disestablish unconstitutional law. Any standing law, regulation, legal precedent, executive order or even established government agency or bureaucracy is and always was subject to Presidential review and Congressional review.
The fact that it's never been done does not nullify the fact. It's still a fact.
The quickest, surest, simplest and cheapest way to harden all the soft targets of mass shooter incidents is take a queue from what the court did in Marbury v Madison, and simply,
If teachers, school employees, pastors, rabbis, theater workers, etc., do not wish to carry concealed weapons they don't have to. But you may safely bet your last dollar that there are plenty of people in those categories and others who right now, today, carry concealed, whether legally or illegally.
And if it is made legal, i.e., back to being constitutional again, a whole lot more of them would start carrying. And where before this they might have hesitated to draw their weapon in a grave situation for fear of being prosecuted, that worry will be gone.
For their own safety, it would also be good to start getting criminals and insane people back in the appropriate freedom-limiting institutions.
We are the American armed citizenry, and our constitution was written even more for us than it was for the three coequal branches of the federal government.
They would be wise to go back and read it, very carefully.
The only thing Truth has going for Him in this world is us.
The restoration of Truth = Reality in the hearts and minds of men is now totally dependent upon you and me; if we don't do it, it won't get done.

Never be lukewarm.
Life itself demands passion.
He who is indifferent to God has already forfeited his soul.
He who is indifferent to politics has already forfeited his liberty.
In America, religion is not mere window dressing and citizenship is not a spectator sport.
Do not allow our common destiny as a whole people to just happen without your input.
Seek the Truth; find the Way; live the Life; please God, and live forever.

Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and
broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in
thereat. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life:
and few there are that find it! Beware of false prophets, who come to you in
the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Jesus Christ; Matt 7:13-15
"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator’s supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights.”--Pope Pius XII
"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor. It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others."--St. Francis of Assisi
Truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.—Winston Churchill
The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.—Ayn Rand
