Obama uses executive power to move gun control agenda forward

President Obama is quietly moving forward on gun control.

The president has used his executive powers to bolster the national background check system, jumpstart government research on the causes of gun violence and create a million-dollar ad campaign aimed at safe gun ownership.

The executive steps will give federal law enforcement officials access to more data about guns and their owners, help keep guns out of the hands of criminals and the mentally ill, and lay the groundwork for future legislative efforts.

It is unclear whether the National Rifle Association (NRA) will challenge any of the executive actions in court. A spokesman for the NRA did not return a request for comment.

    We need to stop taking the bait . . . which is to spend time reacting to the non-stop attacks of the left, and instead begin pushing back . . . hard.

      “This year will go down in history. For the first time a civilized
      nation has full gun registration. Our street will be safer, our
      police more efficient, and the world will follow our lead in the future”.

      Adolf Hitler, 1935.
      Barack Obama, 2013.

      • fliteking

        Beckster covered this very topic last night. In every case of full registration there was chaos and regime tale-over of the nation within ten years . . . often well before.

        • violater1

          That of course does not or should not surprise us as we have education of past occurances that obama low duuuh information followers will not believe it until it hits them squarely in their dumbed down assses!
          it will take him a while to feel comfortable enough that he will not be under threat in his meanial mindedness!

  • Benjamin Fox

    The left wing nazi’s get to decide what mental illness is? They believe anyone who trust in God is mentally ill, anyone who is a vet is mentally ill, anyone who loves freedom more then being slave to the federal government is mentally ill, I believe and the nazi left is mentally ill and morally sick, must be the cool-aid? Obozo’s plans were already done once by Hitler himself but the dumb and blind can’t see it, never studied real history and are letting history happen again. Hope all you left wing nazi’s enjoy the plantation of all colors and races, you reap what you sow and you sow unto slavery.

    The emperor, or rather, ilamic Caliphe, continues to rule by decree from the White Mosque.

    • CaptTurbo

      You must be referring to the pResident.

      • JacktheFAC

        I am referring to this Kenya born, foreign islamic usurper whom misimformed and duped people, and he himself, refer to as the president. I am referring to this one who ought to be residing in Camp Gitmo as a foreign terrorist, instead of the White Mosque in Washington, De Ceased.

        • CaptTurbo

          OK, we’re on the same page. Dat be da dude. LOL!

  • txpatriot

    The Bible is the Law for man, The Contition is the Law of the Land! Enforce the Constition’s laws we already have in place.Take down gangs and seal our boarders and you’ll sharply drop “gun crimes”. And Napalatono give up the ammo now. You may have stockedup for a war, We The People are not practic targets for this corrupt government!

    • CaptTurbo

      Gun crime isn’t really a big problem in this country. The big problem we face is that our government has been usurped by Constitution hating racists and Muslims.

      • FedupandReadytofight

        As a cop, I can say that gun crime is a rising problem, but it is committed by criminals, not law abiding citizens. Lets target the right group.

        • CaptTurbo

          I have your back pal. Let’s move in on 1600 PA Ave and move in on the ring leaders.

          • dankster

            to para-phrase m.l.k.; I have a dream; in it millions of law abiding gun owners meet on the white house lawn and proceed to clean that rat nest out..

  • CaptTurbo

    This monkey needs to be castrated.

  • FSHNT21

    Look, extensive background check are totally unnecessary…
    If your REAL intention is to end gun violence, you need to go no further than to check voter registrations.
    Since the majority of gun violence is committed by Democrats, you need only to disarm the Democrats and gun violence will virtually disappear, because as everyone knows, registering as a Democrat confirms that an individual is mentally unstable and should not possess a firearm….

    • NotJim

      How about that long-overdue background check for the big ‘0’? Let’s see — fake SSN, didn’t register for the draft, has forged birth certificate, has or had unsavory associates like Bill Ayers and Frank Marshall Davis, is obviously in bed with the Muslim Brotherhood …

    • Black Rain

      Same as the ones who committed vote fraud.

  • $13614178


    • ConservativeGrl

      Agreed. I’ve wanted him impeached since 2008. Impeachment then deportation.

      • jag57

        He could probably take over for Robert Mugabe, since he is well past 80 years old. Carter had him installed in 1979, 34 years ago. Rhodesia was, at that time, the bread basket of Africa; for years they haven’t been able to feed themselves, since most of the farmers have been either killed, or fled the country, and their land stolen by Mugabe’s thugs.

    • jb80538

      Impeachment is for those legally in the office. Housed in GITMO until military tribunal , then executed for crimes against America.

    • Mike Travis

      No, charge him with TREASON, try him, then execute him according to the LAW.

      • dankster

        don’t you know that obozo’s pocket-cop holder says the law does not apply to the king.

      • violater1

        Screw all that did he give the Americans killed with drones a trial? Hell no! just execute him his family biden and holder carney jarret and his entire staff and appointed czars over every department and 3 Supremes and pelosi waters and frankenfeinstein and reid and many others of his supporting cast!

    • violater1

      Just as soon as the lazy asssed republicans and independant voter put in more conservative minded Senators then it will be possible! Get this please loud and clear you need 2/3 majority to impeach his sorry communist behind and it is not there due to sorry voters in 2012!

    • violater1

      Dream on dude! We have not the required 2/3 Senate majority! You need to kindly take a lookk at your constitutional requirements! I am however all for it and it would have been history if the republicans and independants had voted for the Senatorial replacements of the conservative kind! I got my 2 Senatorial votes ready now you get your house in order!

  • ChicagoThunder1

    You know if he pushes this background check thing through couldn’t it be used to for voter ID too?

  • Winston

    The very same people, Obama and his socialist nags, refused to go along with the Voter ID registration to ensure the right people voted whose name appeared at the polls and that there were no multiple voting by the same person, are the ones who are pushing the gun-grabber agenda. That should tell you loads about these communists.

  • Terry Adams

    when is his bs going to stop. exc. orders cannot subvert the 2nd amendment. he is declaring war on gun owners. he may say no but his actions say yes. and dumb butt biden is spilling his guts about it everywhere. people if you dont start acting now it will be all over before you wake up.

  • jamohio

    Once again. Executive order doesnot realy exist!! It is nothing more than a proclamation to get something!! No Constitutional basis exists!! Separation of power would be imposible if the executive branch had such authority!! That is why the founders fought the revolution and would never give so much power to one man. Not Constitutional!!!

  • ConservativeGrl

    What the traitor in office is doing is Unconsitutional. The President is committing treason by not following rules, not that he has ever followed rules. Impeach the Marxist and deport his @ss.

    • Bigolfascist

      Like that’s gonna happen…..With this SCOTUS, the media, and wimp-@ss republicans. Trouble is the STATES THEMSELVES are full of the same ilk from the highest level down to the DMV. I used to think the French Revolution went too far. I have reevaluated my position.

  • DouglasDauntless

    Our Presidents and Senators and Congressmen Demo-rats and Rhino Republicans lead by that great Traitor John McCain do not care what we the people want, they do what they want and we can go pound salt. Down with Obama, down with the Demo-rats and Rhino Republicans and all the Federal Government.

  • jb80538

    If he thought he could get away with it, he would totally nullify the constitution by executive order!

    • Bigolfascist

      Have you been looking over the past four + years?? He’s been doing it by Executive Order when it might be too hard otherwise! And the SCOTUS has aided and abetted it

  • Virgil Ferguson

    Safe gun ownership is ownership by conservatives only. Liberals and democrats are not responsible enough to be entrusted with firearms.

  • Lucky3511

    It is time for the NRA to wake up. They need to fight this tyrant, just as are are trying to do.

  • ConservativeGrl

    ΜΟΛΩΝ ΛΑΒΕ. From my cold dead hands.

  • polmutant

    i was wondering what that fly atracting sewer smell was. now i know it is the commie pink kenyan, district of communists and the sheoples.

  • Jim Wiseman

    The problem is that it’s the people who just want to live their lives vs. Professional busybodies.

  • James Kroeger

    Get rid of this pompous traitor Obama…IMPEACH!

  • Douglas W. Rodrigues

    Obama is functioning like a dictator, because he has the personality of one. Meanwhile, Congress sits on their rear ends doing nothing to stop Obama? The question is…WHY?

  • Matthew

    People need to use their freedom with intelligence. Yes we are free, that does not mean stupidity is acceptable. Guns are something that makes America, gives America its character. Stupidity takes all that away.

  • hitthedeck

    It’s time to publish a nationwide list of gun grabbing politicians and keep them on that list when their next reelection date comes up. Let them know that their personal ballot box will not have our vote but will be for any opponent that supports the second amendment.

    • Black Rain

      I can say dick Durbin is up for re-election in 2014. Time for him to go.

  • $5905143

    You would think this moron would be focusing more attention to the problems with this little rat bag dictator in N. Korea… He seems to think the American people are more of a threat then a threat of war… Does not figure…

  • rikker45

    this article is just so much bs. nobummers executive orders will not help reduce crime, nor keep guns out the hands of criminals. this is dumbocrat bs.

  • David

    Does this mean I should keep loaded magazine in my AR at all times?

  • JJM123

    “The executive steps will give federal law enforcement officials access to more data about guns and their owners”. In other words, steps similar to Hitler to build CONFISCATION Lists.
    Liberty or Death – I cannot and will not live as a Controlled Slave.

  • joshuasweet

    What do you expect from the president that created the job title Sharia czar here in the USA and pays him over $100,000.00 a year

  • OldDocBen

    He wants to hear a “shot heard round the world” so he can declare martial law. So let’s hear it. No one would believe us when we said he will come after our guns in his second term, but guess what; We Told You So! He won’t stop because he believes his second term gave him dictatorial power. He is criminally narcissistic so he won’t hear us; won’t see us or care. He has an agenda and since both houses of congress (No caps for them) are with him our only hope is to take back our country by force.

  • Sarah Conner

    obozo wants US to be attacked by iran…then he will order martial law…alway keep a full clip in your AR…LOCK AND LOAD,WOLVERINES !!!!!!!!

  • hangman57

    Obama can stick his executive orders up his A—————. They are unconsitutioal anyway.

  • GATOR007

    If you really want to drop the crime rate you can do what we have done in FL. Our CCW permits are up over 70% since 2007 and crime is down over 30%. Everywhere they increase “Legal gun ownership” they reduce crime PERIOD! The criminals will NEVER obey any gun laws so who are they aimed at?

  • jag57

    What part of stupid is so hard for the far left to understand, about criminals committing crimes with guns.

    These idiots are perfectly okay with gun free killing zones, as it furthers their agenda. If gun free killing zones, violent video games, where the psychotropic drugs they abuse, taking away all sense of reality, this would eliminate nearly all the massacres.

    Those that have studied this and write, and speak about it, say it is all about numbers; it is a game with them, so they look for the ideal location, where they can murder the most victims, before someone with a gun arrives and kills them, or they take their own life, before that happens. They want notoriety.

    In today’s world, it is insanity for anyone to believe, creating gun free zones, will do anything but create safe places for the mentally unbalanced criminals, to carry out their fantasies.

  • Black Rain

    I guess the sequester has been lifted. Tours are back on at the White House, veterans are receiving college funds.

  • Ron

    obama cannot do a thing about gun control with an executive order. We have the Constitution inn place which cannot be over ridden by any president. We also have the Dick Act which cannot be done away with. So, obama, sit on it.

  • KDS

    And What are we expected to believe about future legislative efforts. Meaning future confiscation of all weapons. The Liar in chief would like us to quietly lay them all down so they can come collect them. As he slowly by the inch confiscates every weapon we have.

  • Terence J. O’Brien

    Check out the ATF web site under FFL and you will see back door Executive order already enacted by Obama signed by him , and nothing was done by our rep’s from either party to stop it.

  • Terence J. O’Brien

    I found this when getting paper work to apply for my FFL.

  • Old American

    So..if guns kill…what about the drug cartels, the muslims and terrorists? It seems to me obama and his lack of action, such as Bengazi, our borders etc. put obama as the top serial killer in America.

  • Lester Peoples

    Everyone must live under the same standards, No armed president security. No personal arms carry for Feinstein and Schumer and other New World Order fanatics. The same amount of weapons and bullets and armored vehichles to citizens under jurisdiction of the VFW. and Foreigh Legion as nhs. Napalatino- [who wont answer questions in regard as to why?]

  • Lester Peoples

    Treason, Trial, and Execution! Save money rather than Spend!

  • Rod Ferguson

    If he is able to Pass any legislation, He knows that all that is required to amend it and add additional restrictions is a simple majority vote.

  • John

    He has committed treason on several occasions! Prosecute!!!

  • haroldson

    what we need is to get some one in the white house, who has respect for the constitution, along with wit common sense and the ability to do the job he has conned his way into, he has rode rough shod over all of Americans

  • rulken1

    Obama insist on antagonizing, the general public, who has stated on numerous occasions that we don’t want gun control. ?!

  • Steve Rogers

    Brack Hitler obama is the greatest enemy America has ever faced. He is a child of the devil and his father will he will do. He will destroy America and kill hundreds of thousands of Americans. He is a devil from hell!!!

  • pysco

    Hmmmm…….Didn’t I hear Obama, and Biden say they didn’t want to take are guns, and anybody that believes that, also believes in Santa Clause, and the tooth fairy (Alive and well in San Francisco), or the Easter Bunny………They are just making a confiscation list, to be used later….There are already bachground checks in effect they don’t enforce.

  • Deplorable Ralphwylie

    Obama’s cover up of his involvement in the gun running scheme “Fast and Furious” was also done with his Executive Order. Never forget.

  • auhunter

    Let me see, this is going to keep guns out of the hands of criminals. HOW? They don’t buy from licensed dealers, they buy out of the trunks of cars. If they have never been caught or arrested, they could buy from a dealer, lie a little and no one would know the difference. Mental health problems: yes they could include questions regarding that, such as have you ever taken psychotropic drugs, OTC or prescribed. YES: are you taking them now? Yes/No, Yes no sale, No, How long ago was the last time you took them? Less than a year, No Sale. We have the mental health issue covered. More information on the owner, of course, the above added to what already is required is all they need to know. Causes of gun violence: the one common denominator in all of the mass shootings and even individual murders, has been the use of psychotropic drugs by the perpetrator, they are either on them or have recently stopped taking them. 4500 cases going back to the ’60’s proves this theory. This isn’t really rocket science, a little research and common sense thinking and the answers jump up an bite you. Add stiffer penalties for crimes committed with firearm and the problem is solved. A mugging = simple assault. Mugging with a gun = Assault with intent to commit murder, first offense = 5 years mandatory. 2nd offense = 10 years, 3rd offense = life with possibility of parole after 15, all hard time. Wouldn’t be long before the crime rate would drop drastically.

    He can stick his executive powers up his half breed asss for all I care molon labe you hiho de puta!
