There’s going to be an Obama “Town Hall” this Thursday, so it’s a safe bet the Executive Orders will be coming either that day, or a day or so before. Supposedly Obama’s spending today with AG Loretta Lynch finalizing the orders. By this point we have a pretty good idea that one of the big changes will be that anyone who sells more than 50 (the most credible number I’ve seen floated around) guns in a year will be considered “in the business” and required to obtain an FFL. As I’ve said, they can’t simultaneously stiffen the requirements for obtaining an FFL, and speak of reducing the number of FFLs as a net good while also requiring more sellers to obtain them. This problem could easily be fixed by going back to the pre-Clinton standards for obtaining an FFL.
Whatever is coming, expect a lot of lawsuits to be filed. The Republican field is already taking this on. The Dems want to make this race about gun control? Let them.
