Why Obama's Tiny Changes To Gun Policy Are Actually Really Important
I have yet to see the full text of the executive order, but reporting so far is that the resolution attempts to enforce law that is already on the books and has been since at least 1968.
If congress does not wish gun dealers to be licenced, they can pass a law to that effect, repealing US Code/18/I/44/921(a)(11)(A)
Obama iscorrect: this directive will not stop criminals and crazies from owning guns, but it will make things more difficult for them - if and only if congress does not block funds for the FBI to hire background check agents. Currently, a 85% of Americans and 74% of NRA members want background checks. If they become a significant and annoying bottleneck, that opinion could change.
This issue should be a no brainer: treat guns like cars: licence them, require insurance and require a gun-safety test. If the last is seen contentious government interference, let the test be set and administered by the NRA. They should have the best expertise anyway

Meagan Kelly's bullying did not help the audience understand his point.
