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