(Worthy News) - In response to the latest mass shooting during his presidency, President Obama is seriously considering circumventing Congress with his executive authority and imposing new background-check requirements for buyers who purchase weapons from high-volume gun dealers.

Under the proposed rule change, dealers who exceed a certain number of sales each year would be required to obtain a license from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and perform background checks on potential buyers.

The proposed executive action aims to impose background checks on individuals who buy from dealers who sell a significant number of guns each year. The current federal statute dictates that those who are "engaged in the business" of dealing firearms need to obtain a federal license — and, therefore, conduct background checks — but exempts anyone "who makes occasional sales, exchanges, or purchases of firearms for the enhancement of a personal collection or for a hobby, or who sells all or part of his personal collection of firearms."

  1. I predict that this won't be enough and before he leaves office that he will do the same thing Great Britain and Australia have done. That will be the catalyst that pushes Americans over the edge.

  2. It seems that the world is falling apart. Water, violence, food, corrupted politics, yup, seemingly in the days of Noah, just as Jesus said. I fear for what might be next.
