WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is moving ahead on plans to require background checks for guns purchased from dealers even if they’re bought online or at gun shows.

Federal Firearms Licensees do perform BG Checks at gun shows, it is already the law. As for internet sales, they send guns only to other FFLs so they can perform the BG checks on that end.

So, unless the President is mandating double BG Checks (which would be not only stupid but reversible by even Judge Brown on TV) I have the feeling that the “smartest people in government” have no frigging idea what are the gun laws in this country and by tomorrow night they will be the laughing-stock of the country.

PS: Now, if they want a BG Check at point of sale and then ship the guns directly to the home of the buyer, I am all for that. Yes, not happening, there is the form 4473 to be filled and signed.

Never mind.

  1. No reason there can’t be an online version of the 4473, signed electronically over the internets, so buyer needn’t appear in person. It wouldn’t be any less worthless than the current paper version.

  2. All the news orgs are reporting that the online and gunshow loopholes are now closed. Good. We shouldn’t have to hear about it anymore. Of course we all know the the EO hasn’t changed anything.

  3. It is just a start of the garbage to still come from this.This will do nothing to stop illegal gun transfers to criminals.When someone buys or sells a illegal gun there will still be no background check or trace of the gun movement.That is just what the lawless do

  4. The crying shame is that, WE know that this is ridiculous, they SHOULD know it’s already the law, and the lowliest fact checker in the mainstream media can easily verify this, BUT who wants to bet that the mainstream media will expose this? I’m not holding my breath.
