Vox writer Dylan Matthews took to Twitter Thursday to say that he’s “totally down” with President Barack Obama unilaterally banning Americans from buying guns.
This is not Dems’ sales pitch but I’m totally down with letting the prez unilaterally ban people (hopefully everyone!) from buying guns

“This is not Dems’ sales pitch but I’m totally down with letting the prez unilaterally ban people (hopefully everyone!) from buying guns,” Matthews tweeted.
As you might expect, it wasn’t long before the liberal writer was blasted for his seemingly extreme position.
@dylanmatt So it is your opinion that a President should be able to unilaterally make decrees that change core rights.
You want a king.

This is kind of a creepy totalitarian view, @dylanmatt. And I don’t think you’d consider that characterization a criticism.

Others questioned whether Matthews would feel same way if Donald Trump was president.
@dylanmatt What a wonderful precedent this sets. Now imagine a political adversary applying this.
