What is with me today? I read a news story, come here to make a thread about it, and lo-and-behold you done did it already.

Anyway, I think that this quote applies to this situation:

"The end of law is not to abolish or restrain, but to preserve and enlarge freedom."
-John Locke

That is my favorite quote by him. By using this executive action, Obama would be doing the exact opposite of this.

By passing these restrictions, Obama would make very many gun-loving conservatives grossly unhappy (I am included in this). The NRA will undoubtedly file a lawsuit, as well as many other right-leaning political organizations.... Just my thought on this.
"You're more of a fluentic fail doer who sometimes does a doo dah with a diggity ding, managing to push open doors that weren't meant to be opened, only to find that there's no floor, so you instead become spiderman and crawl on the walls." -Vaarka

I'm Rick Harrison and this is my pawn shop. I work here with my old man and my son, Big Hoss, and in 23 years I've learned one thing. You never know what is gonna come through that door

It is my firm belief that the only path forward for gun legislation is though conservatives. That is, it must come from gun-supporters, not liberals.

I would say the same.

And I think that liberals need to come to terms with something: guns are a massive part of American culture and will never leave it. The moment someone tries to take 'em, there's gonna be Hell-and-a-half to pay, plus expenses incurred from damages and emotional stress....

Reading the comment sections on The Hill make me reconsider my position on whether we should stop mass shootings from happening.

he has only succeeded in driving the wedge deeper and pushing people further apart is my prediction.

From what I have been able to glean from the different articles is this will do absolutely.........nothing!
isn't a "straw purchase" still illegal? if it is what do these laws fix? You can't purchase a gun for someone else last I knew.

"Citing gun-industry insiders and other sources, Politico reported one proposal would classify more gun sellers as high-volume dealers. Proponents say that would close a legal loophole, which allows many sales conducted online or at gun shows to skirt existing background check provisions."

A gun seller must do a background check when selling gun unless they are a private individual and hasn't not purchased the gun only to resell. again "straw purchase" otherwise.

please correct me if I'm way off on this because is seems he's just doing this to stir people up and create more strife again. I don't see how this will prevent anything that the straw purchase law doesn't already.

It appears he has yet again fixed a problem that doesn't exist.

What a clever lawyer.

maybe what actually comes out will be different than what the media is predicting? I'm genuinely concerned that this law or part of isn't covered by the straw purchase laws already in place. If it's covered this isn't needed so what's the point, if it covers something the straw purchase law doesn't, what does it cover and how? I haven't seen any examples of what this will accomplish, can anyone explain?
