Posted on 01/25/2017 1:18:17 PM PST by Boomer
In one of the first pro-gun actions of his administration, President Donald Trump is expected to shortly move to revoke Barack Obamas illegal actions to effectively outlaw gun collecting.
Obamas anti-gun executive action was announced on January 6, 2016 in the wake of Obamas unsuccessful attempt to scapegoat law-abiding gun owners for the actions of a Muslim terrorist in San Bernardino.
Obamas action was implemented as a clarification because he knew that his lawless moves could never pass muster under the rule-making procedures of the Administrative Procedures Act.

Gun Owners of America is optimistic that this is only the first in a series of Trump actions overturning illegal Obama actions.
Removing the U.S. from the Anti-Gun UN Arms Trade Treaty.; Repealing bullet and gun import bans going from Obama back to George H. W. Bushs semi-auto import ban; Repealing the suspension of health privacy laws with respect to gun owners; Repealing executive actions encouraging doctors to inquire about gun ownership and to enter this information into a federal health database; Restoring gun rights for 257,000 law-abiding veterans; Repealing Obamas efforts to strip Social Security recipients of their guns, merely because a guardian processes their checks.
Thank you President Trump!
I hope this Admin can take the actions to prevent liberal states like NJ to enact their own restrictive gun laws that are contradictory to the 2nd Amendment.
From what I recall how the 10th Amendment works, if it is NOT stated in the Constitution, it is a state’s right matter?
But IF IT IS, it’s the law of the land??
Now push through a law in congress that a CCL from any state is valid in any other state or municipality. Just like your driver’s license!
I can drive in any state on my Ohio Driver’s License, but can not carry in many other states even though I have a valid license to do so in Ohio.
Driving is not a Constitutional Right. The right to bear arms most certainly is.
Thank God for President Trump! Pray for his safety.
I am loving President Trump more with each passing day.
Trump probably can’t right now, but once the supreme court & federal courts become more & more in our favor then hopefully many of these restrictive gun laws will be shot down
For pretty much the first time in my life I am jealous - of all the lucky souls who get to work in, and support, the Trump administration.
But the winning is good. So very good.
Sure hope he saves us out here in CA...
If somebody can show me the anti-gun executive orders Obama issued, I’ll believe this is something more than a fund-raising letter on the GOA’s part. I’m not a Obama supporter but I’m an FFL and I can read. When I looked at the Obama White House web site I never saw that he actually issued any executive orders about gun collecting or gun sales. His “executive action” consisted of a press conference. Nothing more.
If only he could erase that idiotic ban on post ‘86 machine guns Reagan signed. A Thompson full auto costs, what, $200 to make? But we’re relegated to buying relics for ten times that amount.
Pray for President Trump every day.
There are some very evil and powerful people out there who’s plans are crumbling before their very eyes.
President Trumps continued health and wellbeing is the key ingredient in saving the Republic
A simple search turned up a dozen or more links.
Try about $40,000 for a Thompson. If my math is correct about 200 times more.
Can we start getting cheap import ammo again?
We tried to tell group NeverTrumpers, but they were just too damned smart for us.
They stuck to character, high ideals. Mighty proud of them now... /s
Websters needs a new mention for dufus.
