President Obama is expected to announce executive actions on gun control measures that he will enact, frustrated with a GOP-controlled that refuses to play ball. House Speaker Paul Ryan has already called such measures an “over-reach” by the Executive Branch, and as was the case with immigration, one suspects a court challenge will be raised along the line somewhere. There is also somewhat of a limit as to what the president can actually propose. And finally, gun control advocates have had more success legislatively on a state-by-state basis, with some even being concerned that this type of national action will simply just stir up the hornet’s nest of gun advocates.

Dozens of women have accused sexual misconduct. On Wednesday, for the first time, the disgraced comedian was criminally charged over an encounter with one of them. Twelve years ago court records say that Cosby gave Andrea Constand, a woman who considered him a mentor, three blue bills which rendered her unable to respond to his advances and committed aggravated sexual assault upon her. Cosby, for his part, admits to having had sex with Constand, but claims it was consensual. The charges could send the 78-year-old to prison for up to 10 years.
