According to The Washington Beacon, Obama’s $1.1 billion “[includes] $182 million to support the president’s ‘Now is the Time’ gun safety initiative.”
“Now is the Time” includes the following:
1. Require background checks for all gun sales.
2. Strengthen the background check system for gun sales.
3. Pass a new, stronger ban on assault weapons.
4. Limit ammunition magazines to 10 rounds.
5. Finish the job of getting armor-piercing bullets off the streets
Yeah, there’s more at the link. In the meantime, the elections in November are looming importantly for the gun rights community. I hate to sound like an NRA fund-raising letter, but it’s true.
Related: House Democrats’ letter to Obama:
House Democrats want President Obama to use his executive power to renew enforcement of a ban on imported military-style guns like AK-47s.
The 82 Dems said in a letter that the ban would cut drug violence in Mexico, where AK-type guns imported to the U.S. are often smuggled.
â€śRestoring the import ban is a no-brainer that would require no legislative action,â€ť said Rep. Eliot Engel (D-Bronx), who spearheaded the letter with Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.)
So, it isn’t even about crime here in the U.S. , but rather Mexico.
