Barack Obama Will Announce His Supreme Court Nomination Today

New Executive Actions On Gun Laws By Barack Obama Bypassing Congress

President Barack Obama bypassed Congress on Tuesday, unveiling a unilateral initiative designed to curb gun violence in the U.S. through a series of executive actions.

The new executive actions do not conflict with the Second Amendment, Obama said from the White House at an event with gun violence victims and their families. “But I also believe that we can find ways to reduce gun violence consistent with the Second Amendment.”

In an effort to expand background checks for buyers, the White House introduced a new requirement for individuals “in the business of selling firearms” to register as licensed gun dealers, effectively narrowing the so-called “gun show loophole,” which exempts most small sellers from keeping formal sales records.

The initiative also provides more funding for mental health treatment, FBI staff and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco Firearms and Explosives agents.
