Obama Continues Work On Executive Actions

posted on December 21, 2015

President Obama met last week with former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg—just as he has met with other members of the gun-ban lobby in recent weeks—while his Justice Department finalized recommendations on how Obama can sidestep Congress to impose new gun control through executive actions likely to pass judicial review, CNN reported.

Reports suggest those executive actions could be aimed at expanding background checks at gun shows and banning firearm purchases to those named on secret government watch lists—and note that Obama is expected to review the recommendations in “weeks, not months.” 

Gun control is “probably the issue that has touched him most personally over the course of his presidency,” White House communications director Jen Psaki told Bloomberg News, adding that Obama “will not be satisfied” without additional action before the end of his presidency.
