Posted on 03/03/2014 10:26:31 AM PST by Red in Blue PA
The Department of Justice (DOJ) is preparing to announce an expansion of background checks based on executive orders president Obama issued in January 2013.
According to The Hill, the expansion consists of "three changes to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS)."

To date, none have been recovered...

Like the guy who gets chewed out at work for being a no-account foul-up and then goes home and beats his wife and kicks his dog.
I’m a Life Member of the AMA (the motorcyclists, not the doctors); but only because they award it to you after 25 years of paid membership.
I agree with you about buying life memberships ‘up-front’, though.
Mr. Limbaugh has some sort of truth noted about liberalism having the exact opposite of its’ intended outcome. Wouldn’t be surprised to find that gun ownership has dramatically increased under the current regime.
I’m certainly inspired... I’ll be buying a new rifle or handgun in the weeks ahead.
I can’t wait for the conservative president. I want the first rule to be an EO that abolished abortion in all 50 states. Number two immediately release an EO that makes all takes 15 percent from the poorest American to the wealthiest. No EIC, no exemptions, no child credit. Everyone pays 15 percent period. I sure have dreams don’t I.
In my opinion, no. The new regulations are, according to the Hill:
1) will grant tribal police access to NICS;
2) authorize law enforcement agencies to use the system to run full background checks before returning guns that have been seized or confiscated during the course of investigations;
3) involves consolidated, electronic storage of information on gun purchases that have been denied via the NICS system.
While I can see potential for abuse, especially considering this WH and the Holder DOJ, 1 and 2 seem like common sense.
And yes, I’m a gun owner and NRA member. But I still don’t see what this has to do with Sandy Hook, which none of these regulations would have remotely prevented.
Sloppy reporting. They mean tribal police will have access to the NICS database.
Look, it is an executive order, which means it isn’t worth the paper it is printed on.
It is time the American people took Executive Action on 0bama’s little tyrannical hissy-fits.
We will not comply with illegal orders from anyone.
The three changes are as follows:
* Grant tribal police access to NICS;
* Authorize law enforcement agencies to use NICS to run full background checks before returning guns that have been seized or confiscated during the course of investigations.
* Consolidated, electronic storage of information on gun purchases that have been denied via the NICS system.
Not true. He's showing his utter contempt for that fractin of the populace that didn't vote for the worthless turd.
....and they just keep getting away with criminal behavior in this administration. When are our “lawmakers” gonna say “ENOUGH ALREADY”??!!
Thanks. I figured that was probably what it meant, but it definitely appeared incongruous alongside the rest of the poorly reported story, especially since absolutely no explanation was given at all as to what it meant.
How about background checks on the illegal invaders??
That would be unconstitutional...
Dangit, ya beat me...
Congress appears to be morphing into little more than a customer advisory panel to the CEO.
