Obama Executive Order May Require Those Selling Even a Single Firearm to Become Licensed Dealers

Obama plans to expand the definition of a licensed gun dealer to include anyone who sells firearms at gun shows and online.   He argues the move will close a purported “legal loophole” that lets gun buyers bypass background checks by purchasing firearms through trusts and corporations.

  • Legal barriers will be removed so states can share information on Americans disqualified from gun ownership due to mental health reasons.
  • The FBI will hire more than 230 new examiners to process background checks 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
  • Obama plans to ask Congress to authorize $500 million to fund increased access to mental health care.
Obama is lying when he insists his actions are within his legal authority and supported by “the overwhelming majority of the American people, including gun owners.”
But if Obama acts without Congress’ approval to expand background checks to person-to-person gun transfers among fellow gun enthusiasts, he will in effect be laying the foundation for a national gun registry, critics say. And they’re preparing to push back hard against any such measures.
