Obama Takes More Executive Action Against Gun Owners

Register all your dangerous weapons and submit to background checks or you will be in violation of Obama’s executive gun laws.

Is the President of the United States allowed to, by executive decree, ban certain guns and limit who can own them? Well, that’s exactly what Obama has done today.

The White House announced today that Obama has taken two more “executive actions” without Congressional approval that appear to infringe on the Second Amendment.

Here’s the short of it: If you own a gun that Obama vaguely defines as one of the “most dangerous weapons, such as machine guns and short-barreled shotguns”, you are now hereby ordered to come forward, register it, and submit to a background check in order to lawfully possess it — otherwise you’ll be deemed a criminal engaging in criminal behavior.

The Administration’s fact sheet about today’s executive actions states, “Current law places special restrictions on many of the most dangerous weapons, such as machine guns and short-barreled shotguns. These weapons must be registered, and in order to lawfully possess them, a prospective buyer must undergo a fingerprint-based background check.”

The executive action will also prohibit legal entities like corporations or trusts from owning firearms of all kinds, claiming that criminals can “easily evade the required background check and gain access to machine guns or other particularly dangerous weapons by registering the weapon to a trust or corporation.”

Owners and trustees of these entities will have to submit to individual background checks in order to maintain ownership, by the authority of an ATF issued “proposed” regulation.

“The proposed rule requires individuals associated with trusts or corporations that acquire these types of weapons to undergo background checks, just as these individuals would if the weapons were registered to them individually.”

The other executive action bans the private importation and sale of military surplus weapons.

“Today, the Administration is announcing a new policy of denying requests to bring military-grade firearms back into the United States to private entities, with only a few exceptions such as for museums,” Obama ordered.

Obama claims these actions, along with his previous 23 executive actions, were needed because Congress has failed to act on his “common-sense proposals”.

The entire White House “Fact Sheet” for these unreleased executive orders is below:

Today, the Obama administration announced two new common-sense executive actions to keep the most dangerous firearms out of the wrong hands and ban almost all re-imports of military surplus firearms to private entities. These executive actions build on the 23 executive actions that the Vice President recommended as part of the comprehensive gun violence reduction plan and the President unveiled on January 16, 2013.

Even as Congress fails to act on common-sense proposals, like expanding criminal background checks and making gun trafficking a federal crime, the President and Vice President remain committed to using all the tools in their power to make progress toward reducing gun violence.

Building on the 23 Executive Actions the President and Vice President Unveiled Last January

  • Last December, the President asked the Vice President to develop a series of recommendations to reduce gun violence. On January 16, 2013, they released these proposals, including 23 executive actions. With the first Senate confirmation of an ATF Director on July 31, 2013, the Administration has completed or made significant progress on 22 of the 23 executive actions. The new executive actions unveiled today build on this successful effort.

Closing a Loophole to Keep Some of the Most Dangerous Guns Out of the Wrong Hands

  • Current law places special restrictions on many of the most dangerous weapons, such as machine guns and short-barreled shotguns. These weapons must be registered, and in order to lawfully possess them, a prospective buyer must undergo a fingerprint-based background check.
  • However, felons, domestic abusers, and others prohibited from having guns can easily evade the required background check and gain access to machine guns or other particularly dangerous weapons by registering the weapon to a trust or corporation. At present, when the weapon is registered to a trust or corporation, no background check is run. ATF reports that last year alone, it received more than 39,000 requests for transfers of these restricted firearms to trusts or corporations.
  • Today, ATF is issuing a new proposed regulation to close this loophole. The proposed rule requires individuals associated with trusts or corporations that acquire these types of weapons to undergo background checks, just as these individuals would if the weapons were registered to them individually. By closing this loophole, the regulation will ensure that machine guns and other particularly dangerous weapons do not end up in the wrong hands.

Keeping Surplus Military Weapons Off Our Streets

  • When the United States provides military firearms to its allies, either as direct commercial sales or through the foreign military sales or military assistance programs, those firearms may not be imported back into the United States without U.S. government approval. Since 2005, the U.S. Government has authorized requests to reimport more than 250,000 of these firearms.
  • Today, the Administration is announcing a new policy of denying requests to bring military-grade firearms back into the United States to private entities, with only a few exceptions such as for museums. This new policy will help keep military-grade firearms off our streets.

    • FatherPatriot

      Sell them? Hell, he just gives them away!

  • tayronachan

    After selling firearms to Mexican drug cartels, I don’t think this administration has the moral authority to tell us what we can and can’t own.

  • cindy

    Does this apply to Eric holder?

    • Cnsay

      Of course not. Holder was “exporting” them to Mexico. This EO applies to imports only.

  • Anonymous

    Yeah we will register righr away as soon as the ghetto killers do! Eat shit and live! LIARS

  • Uzziel

    Perhaps, we should start to view highest, most exalted POTUS as engaged in criminal behavior, and that his enforcers are accessories to said crime – mere cogs of the enemy war machine, if we haven’t, already.

  • RickE.

    “Military grade weapons”.
    Good God, what in the hell is this moron president talking about???

    It’s as though Obomba is likening these old rifles to .50 cal machine guns!

    Hell, these guns are solid, reliable, and fun weapons,and are pieces of history!!
    Certainly not the kind of weaponry associated with rapes, theft, and murder!!

    His agenda should be crystal-clear by now.
    I don’t think that he’s fooling even his most brainless liberal sheep.

  • lateToTheParty

    The question that nobody is asking: why are we ‘banning’ what is not a problem? Are there so many unspoken mass killings with automatic weapons that the present “blow stuff up, steal your cigarettes and your whiskey; oh and shoot your dog” office and it’s regulations aren’t working? This is like the seatbelt law. We can’t actually accomplish something so let’s look like we are. Or what about “Drive Sober or get pulled over.” ?? WTH? So if I get pulled over, I’m automatically drunk? If’s ok to drink and drive as long as you don’t get pulled over? How about trying ‘Drink above the limit and drive, we’ll bury your ^%$ under the prison.”
