  • It is a small step and so long as it is legal, i'm fine with it. The only people it will really affect are criminals and people who want to sell firearms to criminals.

  • It is one small step that will make a big impact on thousands of lives today. I wonder when people will really see that "more guns" really isn't the solution here. It seems that many don't care, because it isn't their friend, or it isn't their kid. But what happens when someone close to you is shot?

  • Hopefully smart-gun makers find some traction.

  • I was expecting something larger. such as smaller magazines for the semi automatics . But recently read some status as in the whole of gun violence is mostly from hand guns. So enforcing the laws and seeking out better ways to screen people is a great way to go.

  • The executive action doesn't change any laws, it only clarifies them. It's a perfectly reasonable response to a terrible problem.

  • Put him in the inner city with his laws enacted in full. He'll be shredded in minutes after the smuggled in guns are brought to bear.

  • His position is a joke. While I have never owned guns and am not American, I am well aware that Obama himself has been the largest trader and merchant of guns and military hardware of any president since WW2. Secondly, not one of his proposed policies would have stopped any of the mass shootings that have occurred in the past year. It seems that Obama (Government's) focus is to regulate and control Lawful citizens and gun owners, while hypocritically supporting and encouraging terrorists, rebels, criminals and insurgents. Keep crying those crocodile tears Obama...

@Vox_Veritas It's not even really an executive order.

It did virtually nothing. All the lunacy around "Obama taking our gun" has been such a case of crazy. Now, with less than a year to go, you think he out to get your gun? Please....

@TBR Even Anderson Cooper's interview with Obama reeked of right-wing pleading. Obama had to talk him down.

It's not enough.

Using executive orders is wrong but his ideas of better background checks is good, as long as he doesn't remove them completely.
