WASHINGTON (AP) Blocked by Congress from expanding gun sale background checks, President Barack Obama is turning to actions within his own power to keep people from buying a gun who are prohibited for mental health reasons.

nothing to see here...move along.
Boston has an Islamist terrorist on loose. And obozo wants our guns. Bad timing for the idiot in chief.
PS Rubio immigration bill DOA.
Where is any background check on this Obozo showing he has the right to be POTUS?BTW, NEW Vaquero?
No, perfect timing. America’s attention is diverted. He can slip what he wants under the radar.
Where is the ACLU??
Perhaps he should try enforcing EXISTING laws.
Me New? no 2000 like you...click my name
story NEW? 1+ hour old if you click the link.
.........and stop letting terrorists into the country.
When I first started using this name, some tried to intimidate me with the newbie label, but I have been a member since 1998and had merely lost my old password and decided it was time for a fresh name.
I ignored ‘em.
Sounds like he wants to amend existing laws, primarily HIPAA. That isn't possible by executive order, AFAIK. Does anyone have a feel for what sort of resistance these privacy law changes will face in Congress? I'm a bit surprised that the required amendment language wasn't already in Obamacare - everything else sure seems to be in there.
I joined up here in 2000 right after I got my first Ruger Vaquero. had it been a year later, it might have been Model 1873(as in Winchester...mine being made in 1882)
I doubt our Dear Leader cares about the existing laws. Also, I have serious doubts that Congress will provide any real resistance.
notice how N. korea disappeared?
The communists love to classify any opposition as “mentally ill”.
That’s what zero’s going for.
Too bad he isn’t taking action on finding out how two Islamic Terrorist brothers were able to obtain AUTOMATIC weapons.
“The communists love to classify any opposition as mentally ill.”
The Commie in Chief and all (ALL) of his support staff, all of his Cabinet are mentally ill. Mental Illness is the new DC disease, as it also infects most in Congress. And all thise responsible for his reelection are mentally ill, especially the 25 million ‘evangelical christians’ who voted for him.
Most are pro-Borts...perhaps it is time to do post term abortions.
and military style explosives....
I'll keep my guns as I suspect I may need to protect myself and my family from terrorists as the govt. is run by clowns...
Thats what zeros going for.
first off, all those GIs from the sandbox who have PTSD will be classifies as too unstable to have firearms...
Boy are we lucky! Model 1873 doesn’t quite roll off the tongue like Vaquero.
No!No! I meant the Vaquero by Ruger. I have the “old” Model Long Colt!
How do the rules on declaring someone mentally ill work? Is it like with a criminal trial, where they have to prove guilt? Or can they just suggest it and then throw you in the nuthouse?
Old. The big one. Both mine are in .45 colt which I can load to magnum loads that can’t be fired in an old colt or a new vaquero. Carry it when bears are about. But mostly use them for SASS matches.
I have my ammo separated by brass color(brass-nickle). Don’t want to blow up my 2nd generation SAA circa 1961.
Here in NY with the the new Cuomo laws they are pulling people's pistol licenses (you need a license to OWN a pistol here) if you have a pharmacy record of a prescription for Prozac or a like drug. Law suits are filed but it could take years.
