Obama tightens gun restrictions through executive order

President Obama has issued 10 executive orders changing the way gun sales are monitored and carried out, redefining a gun “dealer” to include almost any private citizens who sell even a single gun annually.

Under the Obama edict, many person-to-person sales of firearms would now be scooped up by the federal government’s gun database.

“The goal is keeping bad actors away from firearms,” Attorney General Loretta Lynch told reporters.

Second Amendment advocates believe the new rules are about more than safety, since not a single mass shooting in recent years would have been stopped by the rules. They said the goal is to create a national gun registry that tracks the movement of nearly every gun in America.

Federal law currently does not require anyone who sells an occasional gun – such as a hobbyist or collector – to get a federal license. But hundreds of new federal agents will be hired to conduct checks and put sellers on “notice” that whether they are engaged in an actual business or not depends on several factors.
