White House plans executive action to expand background checks for gun sales

White House officials are seeking a way to use executive authority to close the so-called gun show loophole that allows thousands of people to buy guns each year without a background check, but complicated legal issues have slowed the process.

Almost three years ago, President Obama asked Congress to change the law to require background checks for weapons sold at gun shows, but a bill to do so died in the Senate – dashing administration hopes for legislative action to address the loophole.

Efforts to use Obama's executive powers to address the issue took on added urgency in October, when a shooter at a community college in Oregon killed nine people, then shot himself.

Since then, White House officials have been trying to draft an executive order that would effectively reinterpret existing law to require all or most such sales to go through the background check system.

But despite Obama's visible frustration with the lack of action on guns, figuring out a solution has proved complicated. Many had expected the White House to announce plans for an executive order in time for the anniversary on Dec. 14 of the 2012 shooting at Sandy Hook elementary school in Connecticut. That now seems less likely.

That's not going to go over well.

Weeks After Mass Shooting, Oregon County Votes To Nullify Gun Control Laws

If the sheriff of Coos County, Oregon thinks any state or federal gun control law violates his 2nd Amendment right, he doesn’t have to enforce it, according to an ordinance passed this week by county voters.

Sixty-one percent of voters in rural Coos County voted to pass the “2nd Amendment Preservation Ordinance,” which also prohibits local enforcement of Oregon’s new background check law. That law requires universal background checks for gun purchases in the state — even for private sales.

Coos County is just west of Umpqua Community College, an Oregon university that was rocked by a mass shooting last month. The ordinance had been put on the ballot before the shooting, but after Oregon’s governor signed the new background check bill into law.

Here’s an excerpt of the ordinance:

Ummmmm you can't just walk into a gun show and walk out with a gun. The left is stupid to believe that. If you purchase from a vendor you still go thru the back ground check. The only way is private sales and then in that case you the seller are responsible and should know the past history of the buyer. Private sales at guns shows around here that I've been to is less then 5% of the total sales.

It is!
There are still some good, honest people in the police departments.
They're all being vilified right now but when it comes down to it I think a lot of them will stand with us.

Most of South Oregon is like this, just like when Obama came to Roseburg people were pissed and didn't want the gun agenda pushed.

There's also a small movement for the state of Jefferson split too.  Dont think it'll ever happen, would be nice though.
