Exposed: Obama Is Bypassing Congress To Deliver A Major Blow To The Constitution
The Obama administration is once again planning to do by executive action what it could not accomplish legislatively through Congress.
The Hill reports that the Justice Department will move forward with more than a dozen gun-related regulations. The first round is expected to be finalized by November, with the rest implemented by the end of Obama’s term in office.
“It’s clear President Obama is beginning his final assault on our Second Amendment rights by forcing his anti-gun agenda on honest law-abiding citizens through executive force,” said Luke O’Dell, vice president of political affairs at the National Association for Gun Rights.
Many of the changes were called for following the Sandy Hook shooting three years ago. Gun control advocates made a major push in Congress to place new restrictions on the sale and ownership of guns, including the Assault Weapons Ban of 2013. The measures were defeated in the Senate and never had a vote in the House.
Following the Sandy Hook shooting, Obama issued 23 executive actions intended to keep guns out of the hands of potentially dangerous people.
One of the changes the administration now seeks to enact is denying gun ownership to those who have been guilty of any type of domestic abuse.
“That could be a person who spanked his kid, or yelled at his wife, or slapped her husband,” Michael Hammond, legislative counsel for the Gun Owners of America, warned in a statement.
