Washington DC – -(Ammoland.com)- A report indicates that President Obama will celebrate the Christmas season by circumventing Congress via executive gun control.

On November 12 2015, CBS News reported that Obama had a team of “White House lawyers” looking for ways such actions could survive the lawsuits and Congressional scrutiny that is certain to follow any attempt to institute gun control via executive fiat. The specific actions in view have not been revealed, but in mid-December Breitbart News reported that Obama and gun control proponent Michael Bloomberg met to discuss possible ways to circumvent Congress for more gun control.

Bloomberg has been pushing Obama to use executive action to expand background checks to cover private gun owners who sell guns to other private gun owners, which Americans have been doing since 1791. Others have been pushing Obama to expand background checks to cover all sales at gun shows.

On December 18 2015, White House communications director Jen Psaki said Obama’s execution action on guns would come in “weeks not months.” And Roll Call is now reporting that “senior congressional aides and sources in the gun-control community” indicate Obama will issue his executive actions after returning from Christmas vacation.

Roll Call quoted White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest admitting that Obama’s team of lawyers have been “scrubbing through the law” to find those viable avenues for gun control expansion. An anonymous source with insight into deliberations behind the scenes told Roll Call that they expect Obama “to better define what it means to be ‘in the business’ of selling firearms.” By so doing, Obama will be able to subtly expand background checks to cover a larger chunk of private gun sales.

On December 21, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) introduced legislation to block Obama’s attempts to use executive action to expand gun control. The Hill reports that Paul’s legislation would limit executive action on guns to “advisory only” and require that the actions survive a Congressional vote before being allowed to take effect.

Obama may soon be celebrating Christmas alone. Rumor has it that each year he’s been in office, like Hitler, he’s getting fewer Christmas cards. LOL

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life,… Read more »

A Raghead Sympathizer with Santa Claus; what a pathetic view on Christmas!

Ron, At the federal level… Every retail sale of any gun (new or used) does indeed absolutely require a background check be conducted… regardless of location of sale (internet, brick-and-mortar store, gun show, etc). There are no exceptions for any retail sale. There is no “gun-show loophole.” The only firearms transactions that do not require a background check involve the private sale of a pre-owned (used) gun – between two private citizens.- and even that is covered by private property and product-liability laws. But neither is there any law prohibiting a background check from being conducted for private sales… so… Read more »

“What country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance. Let them take arms.”
– Thomas Jefferson, letter to James Madison, December 20, 1787

Any question about what the intention of the 2nd Amendment was?

Aardvark

Imagine the nerve of Rand Paul trying to pass a bill that requires the President to ABIDE BY THE CONSTITUTION.
The press secretary freely admits they are trying to find loop-holes in the law to use to enact more gun control, and that Obama will then just re-define “what it means to be ‘in the business’ of selling firearms.” Like; if you sell a firearm, you are “in the business”.

Who can arrest this guy for treason?

Don’t worry, anything he does President Trump will change back as soon as he gets the bull crap and trash cleaned out of the white house.

Bob Shell

As long as we have a gutless congress Obama will do whatever he wants. It looks like we traded one dud for another. Boehner went & we ended up with Ryan. That is no bargain just look the spending bill passed. I guess that we will be stuck with rinos forever Trump may be our only hope.

Drew

I am not worried because he is not a US resident. Therefore all his actions will be nul and void once he is out of office. I am sure there will be legal action to prove he is illegal. This is I hope the last time the US will vote in an illegal moron to be the president. We need to get rid of the electoral college because without it he would never been elected. Obama lost the popular vote by a lot. If we are ever going to get this country back on it’s feet we can not elect… Read more »

The writing on the wall is, certain rich people will have all the power and GUNS while the others will be slaves and have to be slaves, if we can’t work we won’t eat, we would be expendable. .We would not have a way to fight back. But they forgot the minds and hearts of the American people we will be free & survive.

If this IslamoMarxist poofter is looking for a fight, we will gladly provide it. Let him do some reading about the fate of Mussolini, Allende and Ceausescu before he dares attack Us, the People.

It should rightfully scare the crap out of every American that national gun policy is set by the GCA of 1968. This law is almost word for word a direct copy of the NAZI weapons control act of 1938.

Tom T

His Radical Leftest Mentors stated back in 1968, they had to confiscate guns in order to complete their Revolution.
Genocide was to follow this disarmament.
He will be staying with his family safely in Hawaii until the dust settles on this EO.

Ron

Maybe it’s me, but every gun show I have ever been to and bought a gun from, I was background checked. Am I missing something here? As for “REAL” Assault Rifle you need a class 7 or 10 to own fully auto assault weapons. But the Bad Guys don’t care about that, they buy in back alleys, no serial number illegal guns, WTF Mr. President!

Geoff

There is a “Catch 22” here.
obama issues an EO, Congrees passes legislation to nullify the EO, obama vetoes it, keeps his EO.
