Washington -- President Barack Obama's administration today said it would take new executive action toward gun control, acting on issues that Congress failed to address through legislation.
The White House had promised big city mayors in a closed-door meeting Tuesday that it would take its own action on gun control.
The new steps would curb the import of military surplus weapons and close an obscure loophole that allows felons and others to register guns to corporations as a way to avoid background checks.
Vice President Joe Biden, who has led administration efforts on gun control, is expected to outline the plan at the White House today.
The executive actions are part of a list of 23 steps the White House said the president could take to reduce gun violence in the absence of any legislative initiatives passed by Congress.
Distractions are Distracting ,LOL
Wow... they’re going to remove the ability to use a Trust, LLC, or other legal instrument as a means to registration for NFA items. I thought those instruments were legally sealed. Are they proposing that trusts and LLCs become “public domain” and thus accessible to anyone filing a FOIA request?
None dare call it tyranny.
It is becoming more and more understandable why the POSOTUS is afraid of guns in the peoples hands...
How is that different from an Executive Order?
Just bastardising the langauage somemore?
But what are you going to do about it?
What can you do?
It’s not only tyranny, it’s Treason.
...and where is the evidence that supports the administration's contention that any of these measures will reduce the type violence Emperor Obie says he wants to reduce?
Hoping to be totally wrong.
I won’t comply either. I wish they’d just come out and “executively” force registration and confiscation so we can get the shooting started. I’m fed up with the blueballing.
Recently heard at the White House.
Badges? We don’t need no stinking Badges.
How many cases in the past two weeks did we have of Obamas sons murdering people in cold blood? One shot in the back, and 3 others beaten to death - beaten, no gun necessary. And he wants to take away the right to self-defense? Oh that’s right, because self-defense is racist. My ass. From my cold dead fingers biotch, come and get it.
Question: it looks like now if you inherit a gun, you now have to pass a background check. Am I reading this correctly?
This type of stuff must make John Bone-er just burst into tears . . . the fact that there is no more congress unless Obozo’s handlers say there is.
Decree. We are living under a rulership.
Laws? We don’t need no stinking laws.
Obama is arming Al-Qaeda and disarming American citizens.
What does that make him?
These restrictions have been shown by history to reduce the type of violence he wants to reduce. What he wants to reduce is the citizens' ability to resist tyranny by force. Gun control always work for that.
