Skip to comments.Obama vows to 'vigorously pursue' gun control, prepares to release proposals
Posted on 01/14/2013 7:41:24 PM PST by Kaslin
President Obama says he plans to make public later this week the details of his plan to tighten firearms laws based on the findings of a White House task force he commissioned in the aftermath of the fatal Connecticut school shooting.
The task force was led by Vice President Joe Biden and held its final White House meeting Monday, talking with members of the House Democratic Gun Violence Prevention Task Force.
Obama said Monday he planned to meet with Biden to review the findings and will vigorously pursue the recommendations in the next few days.

Does he have a proposal for getting guns out of the hands of criminals and gangstas?
You’re joking aren’t you?
Well, did I have it right. King Obama. He is a communists black Muslim and will become America’s first dictator. He has the backing of the MSM, the communists Democratic Party, and his appointed communists in his Administration. He cannot be stopped and we will have no action from the GOP. America is finished.
It is time for the mask to come off and for Obozo to be exposed for how ugly he truly is.
Are the “right people” ready to reveal his true nature? We shall see.
The last time a foreign ruler tried to disarm the American people, we all know what happened.
Hey Obama, since your for “Gun Control” maybe you should first look in the mirror, and ask yourself how come you gave guns to mexican drug dealers who went on to kill hundreds of people
If you consider that I have a perverse since of humor ... yes! LOL! ;-)
No! Wait a minute! Didn’t he disavow any interest in gun control when he was running in 2008? Has he “evolved” on this, too?
The man is a bald faced liar. I don’t know how so many Americans could be fooled, but we FReepers knew all along that Obama was pro-abortion, pro-sodomy, and pro-gun control. It’s what leftists do. They lie when it serves the cause, and they ALWAYS want more power.
The Democrats have been anti-liberty, immoral statists for a long time. They didn’t suddenly change in 2008. The only difference between then and now is they’re operating in the open now. That means they think they have the upper hand, and maybe they do. We’ll see.
Typical Obama BS.
He doesn’t even know what the recommendations are but he will vigorously pursue them.
“We have to pass the bill to find out what is in the bill”
The king has spoken! I expect limited opposition until Obama’s “Reichstag” moment.......The media will cooperate fully...
“Now we know for sure that a dictatorship is in the works.”
There is no doubt.
Its really difficult to take these pronouncements seriously. Think back to jobs creation etc. Its all a bunch of mouth w/ this guy. The only think he’s pursued w/ great energy is vacation time and golf.
I think the reason he gave Biden the lead on ‘gun control’ is b/c if it crashes and burns (likely) Joe is the fall guy. W/ Barry it all about him all the time. History will talk about the 8 yrs the presidency was all but vacant. Even after 8 yrs Barry can still be called unaccomplished.
The rub is, he doubts congress will pass anything, so I expect his executive orders will be the big stick (or gun) to eliminate rifles, magazines, register new guns sold, maybe register “assault” rifles already in the public, limit amount of ammo one may buy, tax ammo, send all buyers for a mental test, require a person take a gun course before being able to get a gun of any kind, buy a permit and have to renew it every year, etc., etc.. Just don't know how many of those restrictions he may go for.
It wasn’t humor, it was sarcasm.
I am hearing that the NRA is snubbing Gun Appreaciation Day and telling members of congress to boycott it. Are any of you hearing similar things?
***Now we know for sure that a dictatorship is in the works ***
Will he declare Martial Law to implement his rule as Marcos did in the Philippines?
” ....I think the reason he gave Biden the lead on gun control is b/c if it crashes and burns (likely) Joe is the fall guy. W/ Barry it all about him all the time. .......”
Hit the nail on the head!
Your post should be the title of its own thread.
That should get the attention of some hot heads on here, and cool their jets some.
To those hot heads I say:
There’s a big difference between an EO and a proposal; an EO would’ve been done already, but what we see here is him saying he’s gonna do a PROPOSAL not an ORDER.
Didnt he disavow any interest in gun control when he was running in 2008?
YES. And say it to everyone you meet everyday all day.
You’re probably right. Think taxes and bigger government, that’s really what hussein craves. If he can restrict our freedoms and remove some firearms from law abiding citizens hands, even better.
He has more flexibility now.
I scanned the article and noticed these phrases:
“possible legislation” regarding bans,
“potential proposals” regarding tighter background checks.
At the end of the article it says even tho some folks think tougher laws are coming, the NRA doesn’t think the laws will get thru congress.
That leaves EO.....
and congressman stockman is on the record saying “if you do that, I’m having articles of impeachment drawn up!”
Thanks, you answered my question that I was going to ask bunkerhill7
Yep, it’s gotten more obvious each and every day since 1/20/09.
I think he is going to try and get all the NICS data from every sale since it was instituted, and begin defacto registration. He awakened a sleeping giant and he sees the need to back off...for now.
If I’m not mistaken, all the NICS does is answer this question:
“Is it OK for Joe schmoe, age, weight, height, eye color, race to buy one of these: long gun, rifle, hand gun”?
Nowhere does it say what type I.E. ak47, Remington 870, etc.
Anybody that’s a FFL have any more info on what gets input into the NICS?
Oh, and by the way, the NICS check worked at Newtown; the perp tried to buy a weapon but was DENIED.
So he STOLE it and the car.
Yup saw that one ..... at the end of the article it includes Rep. Stockman’s impeachment gauntlet throwdown :)

You are not mistaken.
The 4473 is the form you fill out that details all of the information detailing the firearm purchased. Those forms are kept on file at the premises of the FFL that processed the transfer for a minimum of 20 years or until the time they dissolve the business when the forms are sent in.
In order to get the info the EO would have to demand that all FFL's send in their forms, which is a direct violation of law.
Not saying the law seems to matter much anymore, its just what it currently says
I googled the phrase “what information gets put into the NICS database”
One of the website excerpts said
“The National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) database lists people who are prohibited possessors.....”
OK anybody worried about already being listed now?
It looks like the info of the prospective buyer put in at the time of the background check only stays long enough to be matched (or not).
Yep. As long as Barry gets to see his name in the news and hear him self talk, he is happy.
Ez, heres where I found the info on wahts in the nics database:
If Joe Biden is really engineer over this thing, it will ludicrously backfire. But he’s probably a figurehead of a figurehead.
I remember many years ago hearing stories of the batfe hassling gun shops for the 4473s.
Re the NICS:
Then again, having done a background check doesn’t necessarily mean the guy or gal actually BOUGHT the weapon, correct?
I mean the credit card coulda gotten declined....
Correct again, in the case of a processed 4473 that did not result in a completed sale the FFL is required to keep the form on file for 5 years. The information on what exact firearm was attempted to purchase may or may not be filled out in section "D" in that case.
All the form would show was John Doe attempted to purchase a handgun, a long gun, or both.
In the case of a CC being denied that final section may be filled out detailing the exact purchase but I personally have never run into that.
I think the driver's license was a fake because one can't get a driver's license using a PO Box for an address.
That man could not buy a gun. I wondered about this man - why did he have an illegal driver's license?
From where are you hearing this?
Is this like hearing that Walmart is suspending ammunition sales?
.....Which will result in a second civil war.
“I think the driver’s license was a fake because one can’t get a driver’s license using a PO Box for an address.”
In NY you can get PO as address on your Drivers lic. MY licence lists a po box.
Mr. Obama is going to have to 'vigorously pursue' cover if he keeps this up.
That's interesting. You can't be found using a PO Box for an address because you can't live in a PO Box.
You can't register to vote here without a physical address, can't use a PO Box as an address.
Maybe in New York, you CAN live in a PO Box??
You are both mistaken. While the actual NICS check consists of only the info, handgun, long gun, or shotgun, the dealer is REQUIRED to keep on file all records of all sales going back until the NICS check was instituted. All Obama has to do is demand the records and threaten the gun shop with loss of their license if they don’t turn them over. Everything bought since 1996 is on file somewhere. Obama will go after those records.
