Trump Could Possibly Reverse Obama Executive Actions On Guns

In their first meeting at the White House, outgoing President Barack Obama is expected to try and sway President-elect Donald Trump to limit his proposed reversals of several Obama-led policies and regulations. It’s expected to fall on deaf ears. Along with canceling “illegal and overreaching executive orders,” Trump has already pledged to address several other issues including gun sale restrictions. 

When Obama declared executive actions to “reduce gun violence” last January, then-candidate Trump immediately swore to “unsign” them. Those specific actions involved changing the definition of who is “engaged in the business” of selling guns, rewriting it to include individuals selling firearms at gun shows. Appearing on “Face the Nation,” Trump said at the time: “I don't like anything having to do with changing our Second Amendment. We have plenty of rules and regulations. There’s plenty of things that they can do right now that are already there.”
