Obama weighs expanding background checks through executive authority

by Juliet Eilperin | The Washington Post  |  published on October 9, 2015

In response to the latest mass shooting during his presidency, President Obama is seriously considering circumventing Congress with his executive authority and imposing new background-check requirements for buyers who purchase weapons from high-volume gun dealers.

Under the proposed rule change, dealers who exceed a certain number of sales each year would be required to obtain a license from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and perform background checks on potential buyers.

As the president heads to Roseburg, Ore., on Friday to comfort the survivors and families of those killed in last week’s mass shooting at Umpqua Community College, the political calculus around his most vexing domestic policy issue is shifting once again.

  • This pudding packing pervert needs to go back to that village in Kenya that is missing it’s idiot! I served under Presidents Johnson thru Reagan, had the highest Respect for all of my past CIC’s, but this weasel excuse of a human is the most disgusting, perverted, mentally deranged, not to mention, the worse excuse of a leader our nation has ever had the misfortune to elect! It will be a good day when the morning headline is Obama’s obituary!

    I thought you had to be a real executive before you could make executive decisions! Congress, you need to act like you believe that, also, and stop this phony, American destroyer before it’s too late! Shut down the government if necessary, because it’s not doing anything for us anyway and it might save some money, just make sure you out shout the bastard in the White House.

    “As the president heads to Roseburg, Ore., on Friday to comfort the survivors and families of those killed in last week’s mass shooting…”
    Should read: ..to let the underclass know that he fully intends to push forward with his Empirical edicts to disarm the citizenry.

    ‘Expanded Background Checks’ would likely not have made ANY difference in this, or any earlier shootings! They either purchased their guns legally, WITH a background check, or else they stole them somewhere. What sort of laws are needed to stop that? Even in China, which has STRICT anti-gun control, there are the occasional attacks, using GUNS! Most are done, these days, with knives or swords! Lunatics will find a weapon SOMEWHERE, or use whatever is handy! The obvious answer to ALL of them is simple: BAN gun free zones! Even a lunatic isn’t going to try a mass shooting where the people ALSO have guns! WHY can’t liberals understand this?

      That is too logical for this A-hole person in Washington DC to figure out. Even Hitlery wants to disarm the American citizen. What better way to take control of a country than to have unarmed citizens?!!!!

    Another illegal edict and he will likely have NO OPPOSITION from CONGRESS especially the DEAL MONKEY, McConnell!

    The Manure Spreading Executive Anus is at it again. “I can do whatever I want and nobody will stop me”, well that does seem to be true. But, of course, he has the full support of all the RINO.s who are completely gutless.

      • usncb

        Lets wait and see, probably not.

    There’s already a federal law, that’s been in effect for many years, that requires gun dealers to submit the DOB, SS#, name, etc., to the FBI for a background check, before the weapon can be sold. This MUST be done by ANY firearms dealer, regardless of size.
