President Obama set to use executive orders to assert new gun control regulations next week.

"I think I will spend these last several months protecting you little one."

President Barack Obama’s bid to assert himself in his final year will begin with long-awaited executive actions on gun control, expected to be released next week, shortly after he returns to Washington. 

The White House is putting finishing touches on several measures in an effort to make progress on curbing gun violence, an issue the president and close aides have found frustratingly intractable, before the race to replace him enters prime time. 

According to gun industry insiders and others familiar with the proposals, the changes include requiring an expanded number of small-scale gun sellers to be licensed — and therefore conduct background checks — whenever selling a weapon. This wouldn’t close the so-called gun show loophole, though it has the potential to narrow it. 

The administration is also expected to impose tighter rules for reporting guns that get lost or stolen on their way to a buyer. 

Neither comes close to the stronger gun control measures Obama sought in the wake of the 2012 mass shooting of schoolchildren in Sandy Hook and that he has said he still wants. But with Congress unlikely to approve any new gun curbs before the 2016 election, the measures are in line with what gun-control advocates were hoping would be adopted before Obama leaves office. 

You know for such an intelligent man it seems that President Obama seriously does not understand the concept of the "lame duck" presidency.

With these guidelines in place, and with Hillary certain to tighten them up and add her own after the election, it looks like the Ammosexuals are finally going to have something to freak out about in 2016.

In other words things are about to get REALLY ugly.

Or should I say, "uglier?"

    Something needs to be done. Just saw a video of a out of control trump wannabe harassing a man in a car. Little did he know the man was carrying as well as video taping in a stand your ground state. He could of shot the loud mouth ahole and gotten away but he had a cool head and a pistol at the ready. Loud mouth is extremely lucky!
    Well the rudeness has escalated where I have not seen so many rude men ever! And rude not just to men but to women! The Palin-Trump effect.
    I wish Potus would also enact a mandatory nationwide gun ins or a high bullet tax where the proceeds go to a victims fund, since juries are letting cops kill 12 yr olds now.
    RW head will be exploding. And someone needs to put a butt plug in Trumps mouth also,too! STFU.

    God I love that man. No matter who becomes our next prez it will definitely be a let down. He never brags about all his accomplishments and is a sincerely a sweet loving man.
    I would love to meet him. Hi Janice.

    I truly hope that people remember this is a trifecta of tRump, Cruz, and Palin behind the scenes. Evil incarnate and the ignorant are buying into it.

    I loved reading the comments on this article on ADN this morning; the usual butt-hurt gun-humping Alaskans, the same ones that are going to end up costing everyone their commenting ability on ADN. Looks like they are considering shuttering the ability to comment based on all of the hateful assholes that ruin the site.

    Kudos to Obama, so glad that he is at least trying to restrict gun access. I don't really care if all of the gun-humpers off each other, but unfortunately man innocent non-gun owning people are often caught in their crossfire. A lady is pictured in ADN this morning holding a bullet that came through her window last night from a rowdy party next door to her home, it came through her window and landed in her bed.

      " I don't really care if all of the gun-humpers off each other"
      I agree but like this morning a 9 yr old girl coming out of (midnight mass)?Church got hit with a bullet some asshat shot to celebrate NY! These people are retarded. What goes up must come down and if they are too stupid not to know they should not own a gun. Poor little girl a innocent. Then yesterday? A deputy's kid 3yrs old got shot. it goes on and on...our asshole congress, NRA has them by the balls, hush money all have blood on their hands. It is disgusting. Someone has to step up and DO something. And POTUS is. Hey they blame him for everything anyway, he might as well use his executive powers, watch those fuckers will hold a budget up if he uses executive powers or they will do something. I hope he smashes them like bugs.

    We don't all have guns, but we are all targets.

    Thank you, President Obama, from the bottom of my heart for having the combination of desire and brass balls to step in this direction.

    The President's security officers better do their jobs for the next year. There are a lot of nuts out there.

      I remember the 60 Minutes "I don't think about Sarah Palin" interview. Michelle and he were asked about assassination, and they both said that, living in Chicago, they saw it ever day and was a chance they were willing to take for the good of this country.

      I so love my President.

    You just KNOW that in less than a day after the order is issued, the NRA will file a suit in Federal Court to stop it taking affect!

    I sure hope nothing happens to my man.

      Isn't it a sad country we live in when that was my first thought also? It should have been a happy cheer, which I did after. He is the President and we have to worry about his safety for doing his job.

    Also, you may have missed it, but President Obama also used his executive powers to have FEMA take over the large DNA testing costs from Alaska under the guise of disaster funding. Don't worry lil' Sailor, President Obama thinks you have the right to know who your Daddy is.

    1. I suspect that has to do with the backlog of rape test kits but that's OK. I think Sailor may not find out who her Daddy is as much as who it isn't.

    What a way to start the new year!!! Go POTUS!!!

  11. My right wing news channel is already reporting Obama is imposing more gun restrictions without the approval of Congress. Not exactly pants on fire but not exactly truthful either. Rhetoric designed to incite the rabid right knuckle dragging NRA koolaid drinkers.

    They ended the segment saying the NRA had no comment but you can be sure when the details emerge next week, gun owners will be furious.

    This is CBS. Apparently Fox isn't the only one practicing "fair and balanced" reporting.

    I will say, right after this segment, they broadcast a piece on those dumping stocks that support guns as a way to cut off the money source just like was done with apartheid.

    I will say I don't patronize businesses that support the many right wing agendas especially having to do with controlling/denying women's rights and privatizing education. So don't shop at Walmart. Don't buy from Holly Lobby. I do not buy any products from Georgia Pacific or that I can identify having connections to the Koch Brothers.

    The only way you can deal with these issues when the government fails is with your wallet. That's how we got HFCS removed from so many products. Manufacturers found their products weren't selling with it, so they removed it and people started buying again. If there were a way to do that with guns, I'd be all over it.

    Personally, I'm loving the c4p meltdown of a new year when they get to say goodbye and good riddance to the best president that they never knew they had and I hope they get EXACTLY what they're praying for in an odd sort of way.

    From a long time gun owner:

    Not nearly enough, but a baby step in the right direction. Let's hope the next congress is not as cowardly as the current one.

    Glad he will be using executive orders more in his last year in office. The system of checks and balances set up by the Founders has been severely hurt by the Tea party and those of that ilk.

    1. Anonymous7:03 PM

      Expect more of the same and they're damn proud of it. "Money for nothing, checks for free."

  15. Not much t worry about. If it can be implemented by executive order, it can be undone by executive order. Or by the courts.

    It's funny that the guy who ramped up assassination by drone including the collateral damage of innocents killed is trying to make his legacy by forcing regs that will do nothing to stop the problems he claims he is trying to fix.

    "Tripp is so lucky he was raised by you for those first important years. I've never seen a more child-focused, financially responsible mother. You've said everything you do you do for his financial security and he got a fantastic fun-filled 7 years. To do that with grace and a level head, and succeed in raising a sweet son who is always happy, is remarkable. You know your truth and heart and don't let anyone change that. Palin babies are lucky."
