Obama Admin Proposes Gun Background Check Changes

The Obama administration has announced two new executive actions aimed at strengthening federal background checks for gun purchasers.

One of the proposed rule changes aims to clarify who is prohibited from purchasing a gun for mental health reasons, while the other would make it easier to add mental health information to the background check system.  

Friday’s announcement comes as President Barack Obama is vacationing with his family in Hawaii. A Justice Department statement quotes Attorney General Eric Holder as saying the clarification of the nation’s firearms regulations will strengthen officials’ “ability to keep dangerous weapons out of the wrong hands.”

Obama proposed sweeping new gun control measures last year after a 20-year-old shooter killed 20 children and six adults at an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut in December 2012. But most of the measures failed to gain Congressional approval.

The Newtown tragedy prompted several states, including Connecticut, Colorado and Maryland, to enact their own gun control laws.

    You hear that? “What, you got sleep apnea? That’s a mental disorder! You better turn your guns in now you worthless scum! You will submit!”
    Obama vacationing in Hawaii has a golf club jammed in his rear end in a freak golfing accident and couldn’t be reached for comment.
    And there is gun runner AG Eric (I’m an accessory to mass murder) Holder talking about brainwashing people about guns some more. “ability to keep dangerous weapons out of the wrong hands.” Meaning anyone’s hands that doesn’t work for FedGovDopeCorp.
    All based on some bullshit that one 20 year old was mentally unstable and killed a bunch of kids in a school yet have somehow neglected to let anyone see his medical records because they haven’t finished making them up yet.

    Just keep enforcing that lie, mainstream media. You never give up, do you? Luckily, neither do we. So you can take your false flag trash and shove it up your ass!

    You’re ridiculous fairy tale propaganda has been debunked over and over again by We the People and nothing will change that. Your tune has fallen on deaf ears. Give up while you still have any credibility left in you.

    Once again, the infringement of the week award goes to the mystery man pretending to be our president.

    I can imagine in detail how he’s going to beg, plead, and shovel more BS when the noose is around his neck and the trap is about to drop him.

      and this is why it’s important to expose these hoaxes (Sandy Hoax, 9-11, Boston Marathon)…it exposes the liars for who they are whenever they refer to it to justify new trespasses upon our dwindling freedom.

      Naw Jolly R. obama is so transparent that he don`t care what any one thinks, he will just do a illigitamate execttive order to get what ever his lieing transparanty ass wants.

    • NC says:

      Obama is so in denial and such a lying sociopath that all I see is Obama saying to the people, “No this person is not hanging me. This is not a rope, but a silly piece of outdated string and this person here is going to let me go because we will be discussing this in a normal, common sense manner”, as you are tightening the noose around his neck. lol
