Washington DC : Barack Obama, the President of United states of America, is all set to roll out new gun control moves today, as his administration has already charted out a series of guidelines, including adding new restrictions and finding out mechanism of combating mindless shootings in the country. Focusing on curbing inappropriate misuse of weapons under licence, Obama administration will announce a series of executive actions on Tuesday to combat gun violence in the US. Also, on the rulebook, are issues which would find centre of attention, like — expanding mandatory background checks for some private sales, providing more funding for mental health treatment, better fund availability for — FBI staff, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco Firearms and Explosives agents.
The President told reporters at his Oval office that his administration was outlining recommendations which happens to be the mass opinion of citizens of United States of America. In his exact words — These are not only recommendations that are well within my legal authority and the executive branch….. But they are also ones that the overwhelming majority of the American people, including gun owners, support and believe in.
President said he planned to roll out the new restrictions, aimed at combating a wave of recent shootings, in the coming days. Additionally, Obama is scheduled to a town hall on the topic, which is expected to be aired on television, as well as form a central focus next week during his final State of the Union address. Reactions from the gun rules have already begun shooting off. Republicans in Congress and on the presidential campaign trail have blasted any attempt by the White House to crack down on gun rules. Donald Trump shooted — Pretty soon you won’t be able to get guns. It’s another step in the way of not getting guns.
Other reactions include one from House Speaker Paul Ryan, who named it as President’s ‘dismissiveness’ toward the Second Amendment as well as Congress. His words — While we don’t yet know the details of the plan, the President is at minimum subverting the legislative branch, and potentially overturning its will. His proposals to restrict gun rights were debated by the United States Senate, and they were rejected. No President should be able to reverse legislative failure by executive fiat, not even incrementally.
