Emotional barack obama pushes for tighter gun rules after Sandy Hook massacre

Emotional barack obama pushes for tighter gun rule우리카지노s after Sandy Hook massacre

(AP) — The president has issued an더킹카지노 executive order on Wednesday aiming to make gun rights more enforceable — and in some cases tougher to get — in the wake of the worst mass shooting in American history and a spate of recent shootings.

The order targets people who knowingly buy guns “on behalf of prohibited persons,” such as suspected terrorists who’ve made contact with guns they are prohibited from possessing in the U.S. But it also targets those who knowingly attempt to illegally buy guns.

The president’s executive order says that such people face federal criminal charges, as well as possible civil actions for false statements. Su더킹카지노ch criminal charges carry up to life in prison.

A second executive order signed Wednesday gives Congress two years to review gun legislation before a “backstop” program, meaning Congress could put in place more restrictions if the president decides to do so.

The president was scheduled to meet with congressional leaders later Wednesday morning, but it didn’t happen.

Gun control supporters said they welcomed the move as they look forward to a potential gun control measure that may be approved on Thursday when the House prepares to debate such a proposal.

Obama is expected to release a report on guns, with recommendations that would include mandatory background checks, stricter ammunition rules and greater oversight of gun trafficking.

While Congress will likely have a role in writing such legislation, they have only a two-year window to review it, so the president can veto such measures, even though most states have no rules about who is prohibited from having a gun or who can buy one.
