Obama’s Gun Control “Executive Order” is Political Theater of the Absurd
Much of the proposed “policy changes” are simply re-statements of the law as it currently existed. The “closing” of the “gun show loophole” is particularly laughable. Prior to yesterday, gun dealers were subject to NICS requirements, and this was true whether they sold the gun out of their shop, at a gun show, or out of the trunk of their car in a parking lot. Private sellers who are not gun dealers were not subject to NICS requirements.
