    Obama declares executive action on gun control. Let's see which Republican Candidates fall for the sucker punch.

    Yes Obama is going around the Constitution - but he's doing so with some very reasonable gun control requirements.

    If the Republicans push back too hard on this they will be giving Hillary the Presidency.

    I can see my party falling for this dodge - trying to beat each other trying to get to the right - only to give Hillary the sound bites she'll need to win over women voters in the Gen Election.

    Brilliant move by Obama.

    Obama announces gun control actions, expands background checks


    FoxNews.com

    Published January 5, 2016


    President Obama announced plans Tuesday to expand background checks to almost anyone buying a firearm from a dealer and make other gun rule changes via executive action -- bypassing Congress and fueling an election-year fight with Republicans.

    “Everybody should have to abide by the same rules,” Obama said.

    The president, speaking at the White House, said background checks "make a difference" and will be expanded so that they can cover purchases online, at gun shows and in other venues. This would put the onus on most sellers to get a license and conduct the checks.

    “Anybody in the business of selling firearms must get a license and conduct background checks or be subject to criminal prosecutions,” he said. Obama was flanked by victims of gun violence and introduced by Mark Barden, whose son was killed in the Sandy Hook mass shootin

    it's hard to argue against background checks for gun sales.

    Gun sales are at record levels, Not sure whats the whole "set up".

    Not a gun fan at all but these executive actions are nothing. Except setting up future presidents to go around Congress. Its a bullshit way to run the government and this President has done it over and over again.

    As is often the case with Obama, what he's doing is only marginally more objectionable than how he's doing it.

    Let's see what practical form his latest usurpation of Congressional authority takes before we go giving him a pass. He's got a pretty fucking poor track record of having his initiatives actually do what he says they're going to do.

    It's going to take a few more crocodile tears to make that happen.

    I wonder how many background checks those Mexican cartels went through before the ATF sold them their guns?

    Some of us do this thing called WORK during the day. So turning on the TV and watching a nothing speech by the President isn't on the schedule. Sorry I read about it after he was done and it didn't move me at all.

    If really cared about this issue he would have done something years ago, he would go to the inner city of Chicago to make this kind of speech. Not the typical photo op people standing behind him speech.
