The Worst Part of Obama’s New Gun Rules Nobody’s Talking About

If already think Obama’s new gun rules are bad, just wait till you hear the latest detail that’s been uncovered in the fine print.

Not only is Obama trying to make it harder for Americans to get access to the firearms they’re Constitutionally guaranteed to carry. Now he’s trying to rewrite the law on what the legal definition of a “gun crime” is too.

The endgame here is obvious. He’s trying to hit gun owners coming and going. First, he makes it harder for people to buy guns. Then, he makes it easier for existing gun owners to be found in violation of the law by rewriting it to his own liberally-minded specifications. It’s sick!

The Independent Institute tells us more:

Congress has declined to enact the onerous restrictions President Obama wants, so he seeks to amend the Gun Control Act by executive action. The Act makes it unlawful “to engage in the business of dealing in firearms” without a license but the President’s aim is much broader.

The Act defines “dealer” as “any person engaged in the business of selling firearms at wholesale or retail.” The term originally wasn’t defined further. Congress heard horror stories of agents of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) refusing to issue licenses because a person supposedly didn’t sell enough guns, and then prosecuting the person for engaging in the business without a license.

The result was the Firearm Owners’ Protection Act, signed by President Reagan in 1986, which defines “engaged in the business” as a regular trade for profit through repetitive purchases and sales. It excludes sales or exchanges to enhance a collection or for a hobby. In a prosecution, no judge will issue jury instructions that embellish those definitions with language decreed by the president.

Congress, not the Executive Branch, defines crimes. The idea that the president can criminalize conduct not made a crime by Congress is anathema to democracy and the rule of law. The fact that the issue is “gun violence” changes nothing.

Get ready to watch Obama continue to twist and disfigure America’s gun laws, making it harder for honest patriots to carry. Unfortunately, he’s got nothing to lose as he finishes out his last term in office.

All we can do it be thankful he’s on his way out and keep our fingers crossed for November 2016.

    • Congress will NEVER make a move against Oblamer!! They do not have the courage to.They only look after their own selfish selves!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Congress is NO good for those who elected them. Congress IS a taxpayer PARASITE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They take and give NOTHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • That would be the day, but are his activities reprehensible, disgusting, anti constitutional or actually illegal?

  1. So what else is new Obama has never done anything LEGAL and if anyone needs to go to PRISON it’s Obama ! Him and his LEFT WING Democrat ass kissers want a Communist Country and if something isn’t done about it soon they’ll have what they want because the ESTABLISHMENT Republican’s are almost as bad !

  2. This man is deranged. January 2017 can’t come fast enough. It is terrifying to think what he will think of next to sock us with. We are supposed to be unarmed like the Jews in Germany during the Holocaust. Then what will he do after that. He is evil, sadistic, and dangerous. There will be a revolution if this keeps up.

  3. I would love to tell obama what he can do with his
    unconstitutional gun laws: Stick ’em up your black a**!

  4. The most important thing we can do is to vote against any and all anti-gun rights politicians, and we MUST stop the commie and traitor Killary Clinton from getting into office!

      • The main thing I have issue with is that the ENTIRE Constitution could be rewritten by the COS, which is the reason I’m concerned and I am against it.

        Are we all blind to what’s happening with the different state’s VARIED ideas about how to
        choose delegates in this presidential primary season where the choice in many states doesn’t go to a vote of the citizens ?

        AND the delegates, although they are SUPPOSED to be bound to a certain candidate-or idea-will vote differently on the floor(proven ad-nauseum in the past)

  5. Obama The Blowhard, should be arrested, jailed tried convicted and face a firing squad.
    He is a Criminal. Unfit to be called president. After near eight years of O J T and still don’t know
    what to do.

  6. When are they going to learn? The definition of the word “Infringe(d)” means; tresspass, omit, prohibit, overstep, violate, disregard, encroach, transgress, intrude, invade, abnormalize, have no business there, break, trample upon, usurp, appropriate, exact, impose, seize, and many more!
    Therefore, by any and all LEGAL definition;
    No rule, regulation, law, shall be made of this Amendment that shall tresspass, omit, prohibit, overstep, violate, disregard, encroach, transgress, intrude, invade, abnormalize, have no business there, break, trample upon, usurp, appropriate, exact, impose, seize, any citizens individual right to keep, bear (have or carry upon personally), or use as personal defense of ones self. Any law made to entrench upon the individual is a violation of this Amendment!

  7. Don’t Forget, if ALL gun-owners voted for their rights, they would be overwhelming. The only hope the anti-gunners have is that we [don’t bother/ don’t think one votes (theirs) matters/ don’t think it’s worth their time to vote] and it looks like that’s working. Get your friends/neighbors/relatives/acquaintences to Vote! I’m working to get MY candidates on the primary ballots for dog-catcher through Congressman.

  8. The 2016 election will probably be the most important election in most of current firearms owners in their lifetime. Not only will several Supreme Court judges up for grabs by the new President, but unconstitutional executive orders that need to be cancelled. If Hillary gets elected with a Congressional majority we will be kissing the Second Amendment goodbye for at least a generation if not permanently. So get out and vote; we’re far past the point of asking liberals “what part of shall no be infringed” don’t you understand

  9. Trump in November, to keep the US out of the 3rd World of tyranny, corruption, crime, poverty, disease, and general hopelessness under a leftist quasi-dictatorship, or worse!

  10. This kind of sneaky, “end-around” law-making is the hardest to fight because it slips under the radar with little or no hoopla! It takes nicks and slivers out of our rights and then, when you add up enough nicks and chips, you’re left with a big, missing chunk, finally! That is why we really need to universally resist these minor-seeming laws, rules, procedures and legislation’s he writes up! Then we need to get serious about eliminating “Executive Actions” of every and all sorts! Those Monarchy-based government activities were not authorized in our Constitution, and are way out of scope of Presidential policies!

  11. We must do all we can to protect and preserve the 2nd amendment as written. No addendas no changes no exceptions.

  12. We the PEOPLE must I REPEAT MUST DEMAND that HUSSEIN OBAMA be PROSECUTED for TREASONOUS ACTS AGAINST THE USA.!!

  13. Have you all not pieced all the pieces together yet! Obama ain’t going nowhere. His illuminati elite are going to cause the world economy to collapse so he can declare martial law on us all. It’s why he wants the guns period. He wants the least amount of resistance possible so that they can round us all up into these fema concentration camps and chop off our heads with the 30 thousand gilleteens that were shipped over here from Germany. Wake up you fools Obama is the Antichrist and he is going to take us out so that he can go after Isreal. He’s been chipping and chopping heads since he took office. Look on YouTube at all the mass grave sites arround the country that began on his watch! Those black fema coffin liners aren’t for bodies, they burn those, it’s for our heads! Remember in book of REVELATION it says he caused all to receive a mark in the right hand or forhead! That’s why, he’s taking a head count! These are the one’s who refuse the mark. In the right hand means you live. Now do you get it? That’s why he wants the guns, he doesn’t want to kill you first, he wants to get us in the fema camps so he can put that mark in your right hand or forhead! Think about what Ian saying, look on YouTube at all the past mass concrete tombs that people are finding. On one from 2009 they said 4 of those black coffin liners would fit into one concrete tomb and that it was for dying veterns, liars! It’s for us, our heads that is. Most fema camps have incinerators set up and if they are burying body’s why do they need incinerators? Because they are burning the body’s and burying the chipped/marked/666 heads!!!

Hold on to your guns and never let them go, even until death!!!

  15. Obama is no different than any other fascist progressive tyrant that has plagued humanity during the past century. He, like Hillary and Bernie, are fully aware of the fact that; it is far, far easier to victimize an unarmed society.
    Progressives learned this from the masters of tyranny. Their heroes include the likes of Lenin, Stalin, Musillini, Hitler, Mao, Kim, Mingh, Castro. Pol Pot, Ortega, and a few other minor ones, though just as politically and socially oppressive.
    No freedom respecting statesman of the last 250 years has ever given thought to disarming their society.
    Semper Fidelis! Always vote anti-progressive.

  16. Well folks, what else did y’all expect from a FOREIGN BORN FRAUD, who PANDERS to the ELITES, and EVERY SINGLE ENEMY OF TRUE FREEDOM???!!! Here in the Sovereign Republic of Texas, we take OUR FREEDOM SERIOUSLY, and WILL NOT ALLOW ANY ATTEMPTS at backdoor INSTALLATION of ANTI-GUN POLICIES!! Folks, if y’all VALUE YOUR GOD-GIVEN RIGHT to SELF DEFENSE, and PROTECTION OF YOUR LIVES, PROPERTY, and SOVEREIGNTY….then GET READY TO RUMBLE!! TRAIN UP, ARM UP, STOCK UP!!! If y’all have local Title 10 CIDG (militia) units, JOIN, TRAIN WITH, AND SUPPORT your local unit(s). If there are NOT any Title 10 CIDG (militia) units in your area, TAKE THE INITIATIVE!! Contact units in nearby areas for TRAINING and GUIDANCE, then START YOUR OWN!! Trust me…THE TIME IS UPON US, where the difference between RETAINING YOUR FREEDOM, or going down into SLAVERY, is the existence of WELL TRAINED, and RESOLUTE Title 10 Civilian Irregular Defense Group units!

    God Bless, and Protect the Sovereign Republic of Texas! COME AND TAKE IT!!

  17. Here in the Sovereign Republic of Texas, WE DON’T PLAY THAT SH*T!! Folks, y’all need to WAKE UP AND SMELL THE NEW WORLD ORDER TREASON!! We Texians DON’T put up for that kind of SH*T. GOD gave us OUR RIGHT to defend OURSELVES, OUR FAMILIES, OUR PROPERTY, and OUR SOVEREIGN REPUBLIC! The ONLY WAY TO DO THAT, is to be READY AND RESOLUTE in the ENFORCEMENT AND DEFENSE of OUR GOD GIVEN RIGHTS!! THAT means that THOSE WHO CHERISH FREEDOM, MUST BE ETERNALLY READY TO STAND AND FIGHT TO RETAIN THEM!! This simply means that EVERY TRUE PATRIOT, should be part of their local area Title 10 Civilian Irregular Defensive Group (militia) unit(s). IF you cherish FREEDOM, then JOIN, TRAIN WITH, and SUPPORT these local PATRIOTS AND DEFENDERS of FREEDOM, LIBERTY and SOVEREIGNTY! If you do NOT have a unit in your area, TAKE THE INITIATIVE, and START ONE!! God Bless, and Protect the Sovereign Republic of Texas!! As far as our gun rights are concerned, We Texians say…COME AND TAKE IT..IF YOU CAN!!

  18. Other than impeach, which is dreaming, VOTING for the proper people appears to be our only option.
    NO CHANGE TO THE 2nd Amendment!!!!

  19. if it ever comes down to this, we will just have to get our weapons from the black market, which means illegal gun buying all across the nation, and there wont be a damn thing Obama will do about it, because there will be so much mayhem here, nobody will even be thinking about legal or illegal weapons.

  20. Executive Orders are not laws. Only Congress has the authority to pass laws. Acting as if EOs are a valid reason to take action against anyone is a violation of the Constitution.

  21. We need to keep constant communications to our Congress People and Senators reminding them of what we believe and how important the 2nd. Amendment is to us. With all of the gun owners working as a unit, we have much power and influence with politicians. Keep the calls, e-mails and letters going.

  22. (WHEN ANY NATION MISTRUSTS ITS CITIZENS WITH GUNS, IT IS SENDING A DEAR MESSAGE, IT NO LONGER TRUST ITS CITIZENS BECAUSE SUCH A GOVERNMENT HAS EVIL PLANS ) THIS FROM THE MOUTH OFF ONE OUR FOR FATHER , SEE THETAS PEOPLE ARE WELL REPORTED , YOU THING ABOUT THAT WERE PRECEDENT HAVE #3 TO #4 BODYGUARD OUR THEM 24/7 , AND THE CONGRESS AND SENTIENT HAS ALL BODYGUARD , THEY DINT NEED GUNS , THERE LOVE ONE AND ALL THEM ARE SAFE , WE THE PEOPLE DINT HAVE NOTHING , SURE TACK THE ONLY THING THAT WE HAVE TO PROTECT OUR LOVE ONES AND OUR SELF , IF THIS BOBBLE BACK YOUR GOING HOLY HELL IN THE ST. I TELL YOU SOME THINK YOU BOY ON THE WANT US DEAD , JUST REMEMBER THIS THE BLOOD IS GOING TON YOUR HANDS

  23. This is what my fellow friends and shooting buddies refer to as one of my terryisms. This is the upcoming election according to me and only me so please feel free to laugh.

    By no later than mid summer the FBI will indite Hillary Rodham Clinton. This will remove her from effectively running for the president. Donald trump will be the republicans choice and Burnie will just not be performing well enough for the democrats to feel he can defeat Donald. The debates with be mostly over so guess who rides to the rescue? Good old smoking Joe Biden. Won’t have to get into debate issues where he has stumbled in the past and he will pick up the simpithity vote that could have gone either way because of the loss of his son. If we have to get a democrat ( and I hope not) we would be better off with Joe Biden then Hillary Clinton any day.

    Folks to get back to the posts buy your guns now. Forgo other stuff you don’t really need to have now and invest in a few high quality firearms now. Then make sure your wife, children and close family know how to handle them properly. Safety, safety, safety. This can’t be overstated. Next. 1000 rounds for each firearm. And this is most important right up there with practice. Enroll in a professional firearms academy. My suggestion is gunfire but their others. Then take what you have learned and teach your family. Both you and your wife should have ccl. Then don’t leave home without it.
    Folks things just ain’t gonna get better
    One more thing. Start supporting your local law enforcement people. They’ve got jobs that most of us would never do.

  24. If obama clinton bloomburg are so much in favor taken guns away why do they have armed people arond them all the time .Should take there guns away

  25. These laws that Obama is trying to pass will come to nothing. People ought to know by now no matter what this lame duck does is not going to effect us as gun owners.

  26. These laws that Obama is trying to pass will come to nothing. People ought to know by now no matter what this lame duck does is not going to effect us as gun owners. Only Congress can make laws and this is another end run around for Obama and his wishes on gun control.
