New curbs on military surplus gun imports among Obama’s new firearms rules

WASHINGTON — Striving to take action where Congress would not, the Obama administration announced new steps Thursday on gun control, curbing the import of military surplus weapons and proposing to close a little-known loophole that lets felons and others circumvent background checks by registering guns to corporations, the Associated Press reports.

Four months after a gun control drive collapsed spectacularly in the Senate, President Barack Obama added two more executive actions to a list of 23 steps the White House determined Obama could take on his own to reduce gun violence. With the political world focused on Mideast tensions and looming fiscal battles, the move signaled Obama’s intent to show he hasn’t lost sight of the cause he took up after 20 first graders and six adults were gunned down last year in an elementary school in Newtown, Conn.

About Ted Carter


  1. The gadget makes it easy to prepare something
    you hardly ever make. Various vegetables like cucumber, squash, and zucchini can be sliced in novel ways within seconds by
    using a spiral vegetable slicer. She not only offers a lot of great-looking recipes (she’s
    an ace photographer too, by the way), she
    also sells the Paderno spiralizer (looks like the same kind I have), has a mobile app, is
    publishing a cookbook that will soon be available, and has videos on You –
    Tube and Vimeo that show you how to use a spiralizer and how to spiralize specific vegetables’like this one on spiralizing butternut squash.

  2. I really appreciate the work done by Obama administration. Restriction on military surplus guns are required.
