Obama To Unveil "Multiple Gun Control" Executive Actions Next Week

Tyler Durden's picture

A month ago, after the mass San Bernardino shooting, we predicted that "the US will see increasingly more escalating "attacks" until ultimately Obama's crackdown on gun sales and possession hits its breaking point and the president's gun confiscation mandate is finally executed."

Without a Democratic majority in Congress, and faced with a GOP that is firmly against any form of gun control measures, Obama has repeatedly warned that he would act on his own. Next week he will do just that, and his "gun confiscation" mandate will get a substantial boost on Monday, when according to the WSJ Obama will meet with US Attorney General Loretta Lynch "to consider measures aimed at reducing gun violence, a conversation that comes as he prepares to announce new executive actions in the coming days."

The president has directed administration officials to explore any steps he could take on guns without lawmakers’ help, and he said in his weekly address that he would sit down with Ms. Lynch on Monday “to discuss our options.”

Once he has Lynch's "blessing", the WSJ adds that Obama "could lay out multiple executive actions as soon as next week, and administration officials have confirmed that recommendations for the president are nearing completion."

White House spokesman Eric Schultz said Mr. Obama asked his team to “scrub existing legal authorities” and assess actions that could be taken administratively.

Why act now?

"I get too many letters from parents, and teachers, and kids to sit around and do nothing,” Obama said in the address, which was released Friday morning.

Something tells Obama gets even more letters from supporters of the Second amendment, although their contents may be just slighly more "colorful."

“We know that we can’t stop every act of violence. But what if we tried to stop even one?” Obama added. “What if Congress did something—anything—to protect our kids from gun violence?”

"The president has made clear he’s not satisfied with where we are and expects that work to be completed soon," the White House spokesman added. In other words, it's time for the president to micromanage yet another aspect of daily US lives, because Obamacare turned out so well.

One executive action that will almost certainly be unveiled is the "tightening" of rules for firearms sellers by requiring more of them to be licensed and, as a result, to conduct background checks on buyers.

Anything Obama does unveil will be met with stiff resistance.

Many gun-rights groups already have signaled opposition to new rules for private sellers and an expansion of background checks. And they have questioned whether Mr. Obama has the legal authority to act unilaterally.

 

Research by the National Rifle Association showed that dating back to the 2007 mass murder at Virginia Tech, none of the high-profile mass shootings has been conducted600 with a firearm bought from a private seller. Adam Lanza is believed to have stolen his mother’s gun after killing her then using it in the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre.

 

“I don’t think the president has the authority to redefine what a dealer is because that is defined in existing federal statute,” said Dave Workman, senior editor of the Second Amendment Foundation’s The Gun Mag. “He can’t snap his fingers and suddenly say to someone who sells a gun at a gun show is now a dealer. That would take congressional action.”

Meanwhile, while the US wait to see what executive orders Obama will implement, at the state level numerous gun-related laws just kicked in starting in the new year.

In Texas, beginning today, adults with the proper permits no longer need to hide the handguns they carry in their shoulder or belt holsters. Proponents of the new open carry law say making guns more visible will deter mass shootings.The bill became law after a spirited debate. A majority of the state's police chiefs opposed it.

"The question is: Does it make sense and is it good judgment to have a bunch of people running around with guns visible? And I think the answer is: Absolutely not," said Chief Art Acevedo of Austin.

While Texas is easing gun regulations, starting Friday in California it will be illegal for holders of concealed carry permits to bring handguns to school campuses.  Meanwhile, the city of Albany, New York, will now require owners of firearms to store their guns in a secure container or install trigger locks. Repeat violators could face up to a one-year jail term.

Ironically, instead of implementing executive orders, what Obama should do instead if he wants to make an immediate change, is focus on his home state. According to the Chicago Tribune, Chicago's first homicide of 2016 occurred barely 2 hours into the new year.

Two people were shot in the 4600 block of South St. Lawrence Avenue at about 2 a.m., police said. One of them, a 24-year-old man, reportedly had been arguing with someone who pulled out a gun and shot him in the chest. He was declared dead on the scene. 

 

In the latest homicide, a 36-year-old man was shot in the chest and died at a hospital, said Nicole Trainor, a spokeswoman for the Chicago Police Department. The shooting happened at 6:40 a.m. in the 1900 block of West Garfield Boulevard in the city’s Back of the Yards neighborhood, said Trainor. The victim was driving a sport-utility vehicle westbound on Garfield when he heard shots and realized he’d been wounded, said Officer Janel Sedevic, a spokeswoman for the Chicago Police. The 36-year-old was driven to the Artesian Avenue and 55th Street where an ambulance was called and he was taken to Stroger Hospital where he died, Trainor said.

In short, eradicating gun violence in Chicago (and D.C.) would likely do miracles for the average gun homicide rate across all of the US. Which is why it will never happen.

Meanwhile, if Obama wants to truly curb gun ownership at the national level, the solution there is also simple, as the following chart from the NYT reveals:

He should resign.

Doing rough numbers it looks like there were about 160 million guns sold in America since 2000.  And then there are all the sales prior, all the military surplus, all the illegal guns coming in from Mexico, all the homebrewed guns from incomplete receivers (or scratch), etc. and I would estimate there are probably 10 guns for every man, woman, child and foreigner in America today.

Good luck, Barak, you sad, inept, feckless fuck.

And all this momentum has been created by highly dubious and questionable events where one is hardly allowed to ask real questions nor get straight answers.  They don't take them outright, they just keep chipping away by putting political enemies on things like the fraudulent No Fly List and denying them legal access.

Dear Leader can write whatever executive actions he wants. He no longer has any credibility. I am going to ignore his executive actions, and take every possible opportunity to ridicule him.

And, to inflate the firearms purchases numbers, I'm going to start buying extra bare lower AR-15 receivers - they are cheaper than buying a full firearm.

Forward (over the cliff)!

A fine choice.  I went PTR, similar design, less $, and local (the company moved to SC from CT).  This rifle isnt cutting edge tech like the SCAR-heavy, but it is reliable under rough conditions and it doesnt jam when you load the tar and laquer rounds.  Given the increasing prevalence of body armor, I wouldnt consider anything lighter than a 308 round.

MrSteve's picture

.308 is a huge, awesome big game hunting round, same as 7.82mm which is a pretty big piece of lead. The bullets gel everything flesh within 4 inches of their trajectory path. Deer hunters see it as close to a 30-06 for effectiveness.

N2O, the hypocrisy of the 'gun control' idiots is amazing. Here's Jon Rappoport on what a real campaign might look like:

<<You would start by examining where a lot of gun violence takes place. I know: this is a breathtaking assumption. It makes the mind reel. In the history of our species, no one has ever suggested a solution for a problem based on where the problem is located. But there’s a first time for everything...

And after you make the map, you then actually think about those areas where much gun violence has been happening. You think about what has already been done to alleviate and remedy the situation in those places. You assess the success of those efforts...

Now, for example: suppose you discovered some of those high gun-violence areas were also high poverty areas. That might mean something. It’s just a crude correlation, but don’t immediately discard it. And then, just suppose that many of the jobs which were once available in those areas had been taken away and exported to foreign nations where slave labor is plentiful.

A possibility, that’s all. Look into it.

And just suppose, in those high-crime, high-poverty areas, there are, take a deep breath,many gangs. You know, people who are organized, people who have guns, people who argue with each other over turf, people who shoot the guns on a more or less regular basis. Wounding and killing each other and also innocent bystanders. And suppose, when you figure it out, when you add it up, the raw number of gun woundings and killings surpass, by a considerable quantity, the number you would find if you looked at other areas where people have guns, like ranches out West. This is just a hypothesis, nothing more. But don’t eliminate it.

And, in addition, try this: add up all the people who have been purportedly wounded or killed in lone-gunman mass shootings, the ones that are covered extensively in the press, like Aurora and Sandy Hook—and compare the number of victims to the numbers of day-in day out gun-violence victims in those high-crime high-poverty areas I previously mentioned. Go ahead, take a chance, nothing to lose. Who knows, even a blind hog finds an acorn once in a while.

A true picture might start coming together.

Now, I’m going to take a sharp turn here, call it a sidebar, but I think it’s important: your analysis should also take into account what our leaders are presently doing to alleviate gun violence in those places where a lot of it occurs. For example, our current President would qualify as a leader if I’m not mistaken. So…how many times, since he took office, has he mentioned the word “gangs”? How many times? More importantly, how many times has he explained, with great emphasis, how significant a role gangs play in gun violence? How many times has he said, explicitly and in detail, what he is going to do about that? Just asking. As my readers know, I normally write about cake recipes and floral arrangements and nail polish and children’s books, so I don’t follow the President’s speeches. But if it turns out that your gun-violence map occasionally highlights geo-areas where gangs prevail and make life miserable for the local populations (and by “miserable” I mean, for instance, much blood flows and parents lose children and no one wants to walk the streets at night), you would expect a leader who really wants to solve the gun-violence problem to focus a great deal of attention on gangs. Yes?...

My point is, to the degree (and for whatever reasons) that the US War on Drugs is failing, US gangs keep selling drugs and fighting with one another and shooting guns and killing and wounding people, not all of whom are gang members.

You would think that any campaign to diminish gun violence in America would include, and focus on, gangs—unless the more important agenda is maintaining the multi-billion or trillion-dollar drug business, with its associated payoffs to “helpmates.”>>

And so on. Entertaining read, but also shows what the real agenda amongst these cannibals ISN'T. Look at their deeds, and ignore their lying words. Fuck that slave Barky and his no-fly lists, kill lists, militarised federal police, universal spying, secret police and intel groups, international mercenary teams, and especially fuck the goddamn evil corporation that employs him, whose orders he unquestioningly obeys.

new game's picture

the real objective is to disarm mericans. plain and simple. there are a million voices of reason and understanding of the issue. j.lotts study being the top of the list. 2nd amendment ignorers don't care. and then there are (guessing) 1/2 mericans that are just plain terrified of guns. just the sight of one scares the shit right out of them. mostly women, but good job hollywood. so in essence they(the gun grabbers-bloomberg at the top of that list), don't give one flying fuck and unfortunatly they are in positions of power to ram this shit thru to law. and then the question becomes are you and i going to abide by these executive orders circumventing congress? hmmmm.

Renfield's picture

<<good job hollywood>>

hehe -- the zios didn't really think thru their brainwashing. If they really wanted to convince people that guns are dangerous, they shouldn't have shown the protagonist shooting his way out of trouble in pretty much every action/cop/western movie since the '50s. Seems the Hollywood answer to violence is, don't ever forget your gun. And then that same audience is supposed to believe them when they claim, GUNS are not to be used for self-defence.

So, how does it work out in the movies deal when some fool brings their fists to a gunfight. Ain't that right, Harrison Ford? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=anEuw8F8cpE

Would also help the propaganda if those 'gun control' spokesheads weren't surrounded by a gun-toting army of bodyguards all the time. Let's not even count the number of guns ol' Barky surrounds himself with 24-7. Look at their deeds, and ignore their lying words.

Kirk2NCC1701's picture

80-90% have already been 'disarmed', if you look at them or listen to them.

This is about limiting the fighting ability of the 0.1 - 1.0 % that would actually fight and present a formidable force to their mercs/startroopers.

"Oh great, now congress can finally impeach and remove him from office for violating the constitution."

 

Obama is unimpeachable.  Why?  Because he can not legally hold the office.  It's a legal loop hole. You have to LEGALLY be a President in order to actually be impeached. 

 He CAN however be arrested for squatting and for fraud but since he is ineligable to even HOLD the office he can never be impeached.  That's tha law.  Most people overlook that.

 

This is why it is so important for him to be arrested and removed from office.  At least that way every single bill he sighned into law....and every EO he pulled out of his ass will immediately be null and void.  Let that sink in for a minute.

And, to you & yours as well.

14th Amendment is where your certificate of live birth enters with your mothers signature of abandonment on the bottom. Research Trading with the Enemy, that's you. Your still contracting and doing commerce with a foreign nation daily, why? Because THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,INC. is located on foreign land, what we call the USA, or home to US citizens and your Represenatives on the Hill need you in the usury system because that's who their bosses are, big banks and Corporations.

Their signing your death warrants with China and Russia and everyone in this du jure governance is praying you don't find out the truth that your a commodity and colladeral for their federal debt they incure. The more debt they make, the more US citizens must die so they can collect on your Fidelity mutual bond as a way to recoup their losses.

On average, everyones bond is worth approximately 1.5 million dollars until it terms. So figure out how much public debt we have, then divide it by that number and that's how many their going to kill when they get here.

Your mother released her newborn unwittingly into a foreign nation as to participate in their Commerce and by concent/seal her own bill of laiding into a foreign port, at the dock - tors office at the State Hospital. All Maritime Law.

Get it? Her birth canal broke water and delivered a goods or product to a dock in a foreign port. The Dock - tor legally witnessed her delivery, your port of exit, as you entered into a foreign jurisdiction with UCC Laws.

You all are contracting with a foreign .gov. so your considered a squater on their land.

Your Birth Certificate is now a bond, a financial instrument to be traded publicly until your Corp. expires meaning death.

All crimes are UCC Commercial, they operate du jure under public policy, policy is NOT LAW so wipe your ass with your Constitution [Bill of Rights] and your Declaration of Independence because its just that, they don't recognise the 1776 Constitution, they replaced it with The Act of 1871, so their both toilet paper at this point. Ones in the dust bin and ones re written to become a Corporate charter which has nothing to do with your freedom. It's the exact opposite.

A non codified "Declairation" or announcement voca visa statement made by a, or the public, doesn't have to be recognised as a decree of soverignty on foreign soil, it's quite the opposite, that person making that decree can be arrested because your talking like a foreign invader becoming an enemy of a foreign nation because he is too stupid to research he is a registered slave by his own mother and volentary, your sprawl on their Plantation.

If you think your so free and own all the crap you have registered, try to fight them when they come to seize their property and see what happens.

I can declair in the public square all day that I am a free man and I have God given rights, but that goes counter to what my mother signed over to the state when I was born.

US Citizens must get educated quickly, if not, it may cost you your life and or property. Your squaters on Foreign land. Get over your Star Spangle banner bullshit and recognise your born into a usury system owned by multinational Corporations. its not your fault

becase your parents were equally ignorant of the History of the united states of America.

If we were truely that free on soverign land, we wouldn't need an SS. Secretary of State. You need them domestically to enter the jurisdiction of our US Court system to use Notary signed documents so their recognised by a foreign jurisdiction (the court) on your behalf.

Wake up and become aware. The American dream was just that.

Your contracted with a foreign Multinational Corporation. Maybe this might help?
