The White House has identified 19 executive actions for President Barack Obama to move unilaterally on gun control, Vice President Joe Biden told a group of House Democrats on Monday, the administration’s first definitive statements about its response to last month’s mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
Later this week, Obama will formally announce his proposals to reduce gun violence, which are expected to include renewal of the assault weapons ban, universal background checks and prohibition of high-capacity magazine clips. But Biden, who has been leading Obama’s task force on the response, spent two hours briefing a small group of sympathetic House Democrats on the road ahead in the latest White House outreach to invested groups.
The focus on executive orders is the result of the White House and other Democrats acknowledging the political difficulty of enacting any new gun legislation, a topic Biden did not address in Monday’s meeting.
The executive actions could include giving the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention authority to conduct national research on guns, more aggressive enforcement of existing gun laws and pushing for wider sharing of existing gun databases among federal and state agencies, members of Congress in the meeting said.
“It was all focusing on enforcing existing law, administering things like improving the background database, things like that that do not involve a change in the law but enforcing and making sure that the present law is administered as well as possible,” said Rep. Bobby Scott (D-Va.).
Universal background checks? This is that guy's code for UN data base!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
HOW ABOUT A BACKGROUND CHECK ON THE FRAUD AND CHIEF. HAS HE EVER HAD ONE DONE. IN FACT HOW ABOUT EVERYONE IN WASHINGTON.
None of them could probably pass the background checks that they created for the rest of us. Like the Monster that would turn against its creator!
They will have to come take them.
I will not give them up without a fight.
Black market guns are coming.
This will be bigger them drugs in making money.
Start learning how to make guns.
Join your state army.
Black market guns have been here for years. This is the way the gangbanger criminals arm themselves, no law abiding required. Look at it this way, Holder and Oblamea is running a Black Market firearms operation through federal means, and I will not name any agentcies. What was fast n furious, until they got caught?
This is all a ploy…something else is in the works. That’s how this deceitful administration works. While everyone is focused on the right hand, nobody sees what the left hand is doing. It has to do with Benghazi and illegal gun running to our enemies.
You are correct,
I feel that your so right and it's down right scary....I would like to think that we have enough in office to protect us from Obama but I really don't think so I don't think that they care enough. but it makes me feel good to see that others feel the same way I do that I am not alone...
And we don't like what's in his RIGHT hand, can anyone imagine what horror he is preparing in his LEFT?
The Insane/Hussian wants to create and register all gun owners in the country. This is a dream come true for any antigun Despotic Tyrrant that may be in power. Get this straight: we do NOT have a "President" we have an imposter likened to a regime that would make North Korea blush at it! These are an evil, evil evil people who occupy washington dc, and the Dicktatta in cheeeef will do anything to wield the iron fist of Executive decrees on the Constitution. Also keep in mind, if you have a Concealed Carry License that this is a form of registration, once again the government has rationed back to its people via "Privelidge" the 2nd Amendment rights that belongs to us in the first place!
You are Exactly spot on! This is the reason I use my 2nd amendment rights to keep and bear arms, not a Government 'license', which is another name for 'Registration'. I will not put my name on a Government document that has any reference to any weapon. It too easily leads to confiscation, and as recently demonstrated, disclosed to the public by a socialist agenda "newspaper".
I won't release my information until AFTER he releases his information:
Original Birth Certificate
Social Security Information
Selective Service Registration
After he releases this information, then we will discuss releasing mine.
