President Obama ordered two more executive actions Thursday to restrict guns, banning the re-importation of military surplus firearms to private entities and proposing a regulation that would close a loophole in background checks.
On the day B. Todd Jones is being sworn in as the new director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the White House said the ATF is proposing to conduct background checks on firearms registered to a trust or corporation. The administration said felons and others prohibited from having firearms currently are able to avoid background checks by choosing this route.Those trusts are an attempt to allow Americans to own Class III weapons without a lot of bullshit. Nothing more. They follow the letter of the laws as written.
Banning re-importation of American made weapons will only affect semiautomatic guns such as the M1 Garand, since any normal battle rifle these days is select-fire, and has been illegal for us peons to buy since the 1986 Firearm Owner's Protection law.
The article does not clarify the "loophole". There is a video - with irritating ads - of Biden parroting something he was told to, that ties the "trust" idea to wife-beaters. I guess that's the "loophole".
More bullshit from a master bullshitter.
