WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama’s advisers are finalizing a proposal that would expand background checks on gun sales without congressional approval.
White House adviser Valerie Jarrett says the president has asked his team to complete a proposal and submit it for his review “in short order.” She says the recommendations will include measures to expand background checks. – AP
Again, aside from an executive action which would have had zero effect on most of the recent “mass shootings” [making it an emotionally driven act, so we feeeel better], there’s still no explanation of how a universal background check law would be enforced.
As I’m sure I’ve written before, I don’t have a fundamental problem with requiring NICs checks for all purchases at a gun show, since the venue is essentially one large storefront operation….but you’ll notice that gun control proponents never use the actual verbiage of what they propose. They frame their goal as if it were an aberration to be repaired, even using it only in the context of gun shows…….instead of what it actually is: a regulation and taxation of transfers of a lawful item between private citizens. Oh, I know that “gun show loophole” also rolls off of the tongue easier….but look at their choice of words very carefully. In all of the text contained in the screeds of gun control opportunists, they never refer to their proposed action for exactly what it is.
Lastly, ask yourself……when the next “mass shooting” occurs, after universal background checks become law by executive fiat……what will be their next move?
Make no mistake…..they mean to disarm the citizenry. Proclamations to the contrary are refuted by their very actions.
