Is An Executive Order a Law that Must be Obeyed?

An Executive Order is only valid if it’s done within the jurisdictional authority of the President’s constitutional authority. To rule against the Second Amendment is not a presidential prerogative.

Conservative talk radio would die a quick death if the President issued an Executive Order saying that the freedom of speech had to be limited in several ways, one of which was negative political speech, especially about him.
Let him order all he wants. I'll ignore what he says just like I've done since 2008...
