Obama To Unveil Gun Control Reforms In Near Future

Recommended Posts

Ya , put the AG in charge of it ,I'm sure he will handle it all with in the law .

By using executive orders he circumvents the will of the people by bypassing the very entities that are designed to check the power of the executive Branch .

These people will stop at nothing & he has never had the gun owners in America behind him ,so his puppeteers will do what ever they want .

He is good at exciting the firearms industry in sales , gotta give it to him there.

" Anybody but Commiebama in 2012 "

I should make a bumper sticker with that slogan on it .

and now from the NRA

As we pass the six-month anniversary of the tragic Tucson shooting, multiple press reports indicate the Obama administration is planning to unveil new, but unspecified, gun control initiatives.

At a Thursday briefing, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said, "As you know, the President directed the Attorney General to form working groups with key stakeholders to identify common-sense measures that would improve Americans' safety and security while fully respecting Second Amendment rights.  That process is well underway at the Department of Justice with stakeholders on all sides working through these complex issues. And we expect to have some more specific announcements in the near future."

Carney provided no further details on the initiatives, but he isn't the only one saying something is in the works.  According to a related article on NPR.org, U.S. Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-N.Y.) said, “I have spoken to the president. He is with me on [gun control], and it's just going to be when that opportunity comes forward that we're going to be able to go forward.” And longtime anti-gun activist Sarah Brady has said that in March, the president told her “I just want you to know that we are working on [gun control] ... We have to go through a few processes, but under the radar.”

Rest assured we'll report any significant developments in the weeks ahead.

I hope Obama considers this a "shot across the bow" for anything he attempts in the future.  News as of today, 13 July 11:

House Committee Passes Amendment to Defund Illegal Obama Firearm Sales Reporting Requirement


Wednesday, July 13, 2011


Today, during consideration of the FY 2012 Commerce, Justice, Science Appropriations bill, pro-gun U.S. Rep. Denny Rehberg (R-Mont.) offered an amendment to prohibit the use of funds for a new and unauthorized multiple sales reporting plan proposed by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.  The Amendment was passed by a vote of 25-16.

The Rehberg Amendment, which was strongly supported by NRA, will defund the Justice Department’s controversial and illegal move requiring federally licensed firearms retailers in states bordering Mexico to report multiple sales of semi-automatic rifles.

As we reported yesterday, this procedure was proposed last fall as an “emergency" measure by BATFE.  Specifically, it calls for all of the firearm retailers in California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas to report multiple sales, or other dispositions, of two or more .22 caliber or larger semi-automatic rifles capable of accepting a detachable magazine purchased by a single individual in a five consecutive business day period.  It is important to note that under existing law, BATFE already has full access to every dealer’s firearm transaction records, either during a bona fide criminal investigation or simply to enforce compliance with record keeping requirements. This new reporting procedure would create a registry of owners of many of today's most popular rifles--firearms owned by millions of Americans for self-defense, hunting and other lawful purposes.  Most importantly, however, the BATFE has no legal authority to demand these reports. 

In addition, the agency has recently come under intense scrutiny due to its ill-conceived “Fast and Furious” operation.  "Fast and Furious" encouraged Arizona gun stores to sell thousands of guns to suspicious buyers, despite objections from dealers and even BATFE’s own field agents.

Earlier this year, the U.S. House of Representatives voted on and passed, by a vote of 277 to 149, an amendment to H.R. 1 (also offered by Rep. Rehberg, along with Rep. Dan Boren (D-Okla.)) that also would have prohibited the use of federal funds for this reporting requirement.  Unfortunately, the amendment was not included in the final version of the bill as a result of Senate inaction. 

In March, U.S. Sens. Jon Tester (D-Mont.) and Richard Burr (R-N.C.) introduced S. 570--“to prohibit the Department of Justice from tracking and cataloguing the purchases of multiple rifles and shotguns."  The bill would ensure that federal funds cannot be used for the multiple sales reporting procedure. 

NRA will continue to work to make sure the Rehberg Amendment makes it through the appropriations process.  The amendment is scheduled to be heard on the House floor in August.

While the Rehberg Amendment is a critically important first step, it is imperative that you contact your U.S. Senators and ask them to cosponsor and support S. 570.  You can find contact information for your elected officials by using the "Write Your Representatives" tool at www.NRAILA.org, or you can call your U.S. senators at (202) 224-3121.  S. 570 currently has 29 cosponsors.  To see if your senators are cosponsors, please click here:  http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z?d112:SN00570:@@@P

When will the fed start working on the CRIMINALS and STOP working against the LAW ABIDING PUBLIC?

They won't. They want us all unarmed and they won't ever stop trying to erode away at our 2nd amendment rights until all we have left is beanie flippers and rocks. Remember this, politicians prefer unarmed peasants.

It's not just the feds friends....  The UN wants us unarmed as well, and has been working on an "Arms Trade Treaty" for a while now. I got this read from GOA (The only no compromise gun lobby in DC) today.
