FACT SHEET: New Executive Actions to Reduce Gun Violence and Make Our Communities

Gun violence has taken a heartbreaking toll on too many communities across the country. Over the past decade in America, more than 100,000 people have been killed as a result of gun violence—and millions more have been the victim of assaults, robberies, and other crimes involving a gun. Many of these crimes were committed by people who never should have been able to purchase a gun in the first place. Over the same period, hundreds of thousands of other people in our communities committed suicide with a gun and nearly half a million people suffered other gun injuries. Hundreds of law enforcement officers have been shot to death protecting their communities. And too many children are killed or injured by firearms every year, often by accident. The vast majority of Americans—including the vast majority of gun owners—believe we must take sensible steps to address these horrible tragedies.

The President and Vice President are committed to using every tool at the Administration’s disposal to reduce gun violence. Some of the gaps in our country’s gun laws can only be fixed through legislation, which is why the President continues to call on Congress to pass the kind of commonsense gun safety reforms supported by a majority of the American people. And while Congress has repeatedly failed to take action and pass laws that would expand background checks and reduce gun violence, today, building on the significant steps that have already been taken over the past several years, the Administration is announcing a series of commonsense executive actions designed to:

1. Keep guns out of the wrong hands through background checks.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) is making clear that it doesn’t matter where you conduct your business—from a store, at gun shows, or over the Internet: If you’re in the business of selling firearms, you must get a license and conduct background checks.

ATF is finalizing a rule to require background checks for people trying to buy some of the most dangerous weapons and other items through a trust, corporation, or other legal entity.

Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch has sent a letter to States highlighting the importance of receiving complete criminal history.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is overhauling the background check system to make it more effective and efficient. The envisioned improvements include processing background checks 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and improving notification of local authorities when certain prohibited persons unlawfully attempt to buy a gun. The FBI will hire more than 230 additional examiners and other staff to help process these background checks.

The potential for abuse for this is incredible. Wow, just wow. This is a display of just how stupid they think we really are.  I, for one, am tired of having my intelligence insulted.  If they want to stop a bunch of killing with guns, they need to go into the "no go zones" in crime ridden Chicago and other cities and remove the guns from the criminals.  They couldn't get them all, but they'd get a lot of them. But they don't. You know why?  Because the number of law enforcement officers returning home each night would be less than the number that went out to get their guns because they'd shoot them before they'd give them up.

But what do we do?  Because we are non-violent, law abiding people who work for a living, pay our f***ing taxes, we try to tolerate all of this bullshit and that gets us exactly what we are getting.  I don't know what to do, but something has to be done to stop this. They are wrong.  Plain and simple. 

SCOTUS already ruled on our right to bear arms. They should not hear anymore cases regarding the 2nd Amendment when they try to get this into a courtroom and that's exactly where this is going and how they are going to ratify this nightmare.

Lies lies lies. This is just stupid they already preform background checks at gun shows, you have to pass a back ground check when ordering online. The checks are already in place just enforce them we don't need more unconstitutional laws.

Oh Look, Doctors get to decide if you can have a gun or not. I knew this was coming and this is how it will work.

If you have EVER been treated for PTSD, depression, anxiety, ADHD, or any number of disorders, and/or have ever taken prescription meds for a condition you can't have a gun! Your medical records from birth will be tied into the background check database so anything you have ever done in your life, can and will be used against you.

What if you piss off your doctor and he puts some bogus report in your medical file...no gun for you.

What if your doctor is paid off by your ex-wife's lawyer..no gun for you.

What if you had a breakdown at work and they told you if you go to anger management you can keep your job...no gun for you.

Oh what a can of worms this is..

Doctors can report some mentally ill patients to FBI under new gun control rule

Blah blah blah, it's the Republicans fault! Notice how they keep referring to Sandy Hook, maximum mileage from a single false flag. This administration plays the blame game more than any other in history.....piss poor leadership.

Not only that... but if you order a gun online, it has to be shipped to a licensed dealer, who runs a check before handing the gun over to you...

McConnell Statement on President Obama’s Political Gun Control Announcement

‘In the wake of the President’s vow to ‘politicize’ shootings, it’s hard to see today’s announcement as being about more than politics.’

Fort Knox, Ky.U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell made the following statement on President Obama’s gun control remarks and his recent call to ‘politicize’ the issue:

“In the wake of the President’s vow to ‘politicize’ shootings, it’s hard to see today’s announcement as being about more than politics. The President has overseen a dramatic drop in prosecutions related to the enforcement of gun laws already on the books, and his party recently voted once again to defeat a Senate measure to increase those prosecutions.

“The people’s elected representatives in Congress will oversee these latest actions to determine whether they follow federal law and the Constitution. But there is another point here as well. At a time when the American people are looking to the Commander in Chief to provide real leadership in countering terrorist threats from ISIL and Al Qaeda, what Americans seem to get instead are lectures, distractions, and attempts to undermine their fundamental Second Amendment rights.”

Texas has something to say about this too.

 

“The Bill of Rights was added as a specific safeguard to prevent the federal government from denying Americans those guaranteed rights,” said Texas Governor Greg Abbott. “Today, the President trampled the purpose and substance of the Bill of Rights by unilaterally imposing Second Amendment restrictions. After failing to pass gun control measures through Congress, the President is yet again resorting to unilateral executive action in place of the democratic process. Despite the President’s latest attempt to undermine our liberty, Texas will take every action to protect the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens.

Thank you, Mr. Abbott!  

My brother and I talk all the time about how we feel very strongly that one day we are going to be very happy that we live in the great state of Texas.  Not that we aren't already... but Texas has a better chance of surviving alone than most other states, if not all.

Indeed, I've a feeling that as blatantly unconstitutional as these "actions" will be a LOT of us might be in need of a safe place to relocate to! :onfire:
