The President’s Executive Actions in summary

For the most part, complete bullshit to placate useful idiots. The two items that are actually note worthy are as follows:

Clarify 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.

They couldn’t figure out how to outlaw private sales. So instead they’ve decided to arbitrarily define whether or not you are “in the business of selling firearms” on a case by case basis using “other factors.” There is no specific minimum number of firearms one must sell to be considered a dealer who must be licensed. Rules of the day shall apply hence forth.

Require background checks for people trying to buy some of the most dangerous weapons and other items through a trust or corporation…

According to the ATF’s final ruling, “responsible persons” on a trust must submit fingerprints and photos in addition to passing NICS. But, the CLEO signature is eliminated. One might argue this actually streamlines the process of purchasing an NFA item as the CLEO signature has been the primary reason so many people chose to create trusts into which these items were transferred. No longer are you held hostage by a local Democrat or RINO sheriff, judge, or police chief who refuses to sign your Form 1 or Form 4. The rule goes into effect 180-days from January 4.

  1. Pure and simple, a red herring to keep the conservative base from attacking Bill Clinton as he promotes Hillary. The King doesn’t have any morals. He doesn’t care one iota how much of America’s resources are spent defending against his edicts, as long as he can get people to look the other way this election year. He believes he is justified to keep the Democrat party in power. Oh, and don’t look at his failed foreign policy while you are busy arguing over what constitutes a right vs a privilege.

  2. Except for the part about vaporware smart gun technology stuff, and that he is adding still more millions of dollars to the federal budget (which hopefully, John Culberson will not fund) this plan looks fairly benign. That’s what scares me–not what’s in it, but what’s not in it. Gun Registration is the essential element for gun grabbers, and I can’t find that in the plan, unless it’s in reserve for the final draft.

    Also, as always “gun violence” is in every paragraph. If that phrase were replaced with “gang violence”, he might be onto a real idea. Of course, reducing violent crime is not the objective, is it? And, the ACLU will spend months and millions more attacking the privacy compromises in his mental health disclosures. Social Security? Wait until he declares that Direct Deposit is an indicator of mental limitations.

  3. So more “kitchen table” FFL’s. Remember when Slick Willy got rid of them in the 90’s?
    I always want to know what is next when it doesn’t work. Because it is not supposed to work. When he said he was going to do this he said “It will be enforceable and pass congressional scrutiny”. He never said “effective”.

    So what is this distracting us from?
