WASHINGTON (AP) — Vice President Joe Biden says if Congress won’t act on gun control, he’ll fight for a new Congress.
Biden is unveiling two new steps President Barack Obama is taking on gun violence. The executive actions don’t require approval from Congress, where gun legislation collapsed earlier this year.
One new step will curb the import of military surplus weapons. The Obama administration is also proposing to close a loophole that lets certain weapons be registered to corporations without background checks.
Imported military surplus rifles are rarely used in crimes. The vast majority of gun violence (which is down 40% since 1992) is done by inner city gangs using cheap illegally obtained handguns.
Russian military surplus rifles are purchased by law-abiding gun collectors and hunters in the US. Obama is once again perverting due process and the US Constitution, for no reason other than the fact that he hates most Americans and wants to punish them.
When Obama uses the term “common sense” you know that he is up to something very evil. He is in the process of shipping huge amounts of arms to Islamic terrorists in the Middle East, while he tries to confiscate them from law abiding Americans.
