President Barack Obama is expected to announce in the coming days a new executive action with the goal of expanding background checks on gun sales, people familiar with White House planning said.
Described as "imminent," the set of executive actions would fulfill a promise by the President to take further unilateral steps the White House says could help curb gun deaths.
Plans for the action are not yet complete, and those familiar with the process warn that unforeseen circumstances could delay an announcement. But gun control advocates are expecting the new actions to be revealed next week, ahead of Obama's annual State of the Union address, set for January 12.
The White House wouldn't comment directly on the exact timing or content of Obama's executive orders. White House spokesman Eric Schultz said that the President expected a set of recommendations on unilateral action to arrive at the beginning of the year.
He said Obama was "expressing urgency" for a list of steps he can take on his own after high-profile incidents of gun violence at the end of this year.
A spokeswoman for the National Rifle Association said the group had no comment The group previously told CNN that Obama's "gun control agenda was rejected by Congress. Now, he is doing what he always does when he doesn't get his way, defying the will of the people and using executive action."
Gun control advocates say Obama could take action himself by issuing a regulation that provides expanded guidance on who falls under the "in the business" standard.

Those who are charged with implementation should strongly consider a 13 month training period before any implementation.

Presidents can’t change laws.
Even if they think they can.

Obama: don’t deal with the issue, punish the innocent.
Any bets on whether the Republicans do anything effective to stop it? Whether they even issue a condemnation?
And Texas gets open carry tomorrow!
Presidents canât change laws.
Even if they think they can.
But the bureaucracy will implement what he decides. You are right presidents don’t make laws. But that’s only if everyone recognizes that. The media and the bureaucracy which enforce regulations, will take his decrees as having the force of law. The only legal way to stop him is through the courts, as I see it.
And to add.... Obama’s fellow Democrats created “the hood” and all of its gangland violence through programs like the New Deal and Great Society. Teach minorities how to live in the ghetto, not have to work, get government checks, and scrounge via drugs and violence in order to get ahead. Look at what Democrats have done to major cities and that’s where gun violence is highest. So, what does Obama do? Go after guns of law-abiding, decent, God-fearing, patriotic Americans. What a national joke, but the sad thing is the joke’s on us.
The most effective step would be to eliminate Gun Free Zones. Barack Hussein Obama -- Number One Gun Salesman in the country over the last 7+ years.
