This was more mush from the wimp.

I'm thinking that his advisors told him that trying to EO sweeping changes would meet so much resistance that he better go a "gentler" route. It's still worrisome - dollars will get you donuts that the expanded background checks will evolve into a national registry with a lot of information to be used against the law-abiding Peoples and not hurting the criminals a whit. I'm also concerned about the item where if a gun is confiscated, law enforcement gets time to conduct a thorough background check before having to return the gun - what new and looser rules will allow arbitrary confiscation of weapons? If you have several, and one is used in self defenses, will they try to confiscate them all "just to be safe"? I'll bet it will be twisted so if a weapon gets confiscated for any reason, getting it back will be the exception rather than the rule.

Just because what came out seems tame compared to what we thought it might be doesn't mean there isn't a lot of future poison coming our way.
