Senate Democrats Urge Executive Action On Background Checks

posted on November 26, 2015

It’s not common to see members of Congress asking the president to go over their heads, but this week we saw 24 U.S. Senate Democrats ask Barack Obama to issue an executive order expanding background checks to cover some private gun sales. The measure, which Obama’s staff tentatively advanced last month, would target private individuals who sell a certain number of firearms per year. 

Breitbart reports that even this restrictive measure wouldn’t be enough for Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety, which is encouraging the president to take even more drastic action. Anyway, it shows how demoralized the congressional anti-gun faction is becoming that they are asking to be consigned to irrelevance.
