2016 will thankfully be Obama’s final year in office, so he’s planning to up his game to ban guns as soon as the new year rolls around.
While millions of Americans are distracted with Christmas and New Years, Obama is reportedly planning to quietly drop some executive orders that aim to destroy the Second Amendment.
Roll Call reported on Obama’s gun control plans:
So far, the White House is keeping its plans — and the details of its legal review — under wraps. But sources say the administration is zeroing in on the definition of just who is in the gun sales realm.
“What we expect is that they are going to better define what it means to be ‘in the business’ of selling firearms,” said a source with knowledge of the administration’s thinking. Congressional aides say they are hearing similar rumblings.
Congressional Republicans and the White House are at a standoff over access to guns. That’s because GOP members hear “stricter gun laws” and process it as attack on their Second Amendment rights, while the administration describes tighter laws as “common sense steps” after a spate of mass shootings during Obama’s tenure.
The White House has bluntly accused many Republican lawmakers with being too afraid of the powerful National Rifle Association to advocate for even modest changes. But, in the wake of San Bernardino shootings and revelations that the shooters were inspired by the Islamic State, it is clear Obama intends to do what he can with or without congressional backing.
“There are common-sense things that can be done that would make our country safer, that would make it harder for criminals and the mentally ill to get their hands on a firearm,” Earnest said, according to Federalist Papers. “And we can do that without undermining the basic constitutional rights of law-abiding Americans.”
Enjoy your Christmas, patriots, because big changes are DEFINITELY coming!
