White House Announces 23 New Gun Control Executive Actions To Reduce Violence

23 New Gun Control Executive Actions. On January 16, 2013, President Obama announced 23 executive actions to reduce gun violence. Today, on December 2nd, the White House announced they have completed or made significant progress on every one of them.

In a statement released by Joe Biden, the White house discussed those 23 gun control executive actions.

Twenty years ago, President Clinton signed the Brady Bill into law.

That law said that if you want to purchase a firearm from a federally licensed dealer in this country, you have to get a background check first. It was a historic piece of legislation — one that’s kept 1.5 million of the wrong people from getting their hands on a firearm in the last 14 years.

But in the wake of the tragedy in Newtown — a year ago this month — we know we’ve got to keep working to build on that progress.

And so even after a minority of Senators blocked commonsense legislation to reduce gun violence this spring, we’re pushing forward.

President Obama laid out 23 executive actions to make sure the Administration took essential and rapid steps to save lives while respecting our Second Amendment rights. And since January, we’ve completed or made significant progress on all of them.

President Obama is keeping his word to make sure our families and communities are safe. See the progress we’ve made.

Those 23 executive actions are keeping guns out of dangerous hands. They’re providing support for communities to hire school resource officers. And they’re reducing the stigma around mental illness.

Now, it’s not enough to take these steps on our own — we still need Congress to pass comprehensive legislation to reduce gun violence. We need expanded background checks, and we need to create serious penalties for gun trafficking. There is no question that these kinds of measures would protect our kids and keep our communities safer.

No parent should ever face the horror of the scene at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Or a movie theater in Aurora. Or a temple in Oak Creek. Or the campus at Virginia Tech.

We’ve seen too much gun violence as a country. And if there’s even one thing we can do to save a life, it is our most sacred duty to try.

That’s where I stand. And you have my word that the President and I are doing everything we can to make sure no parent loses their child to gun violence.

    How many of these will stop criminals, those that break and disregard the laws, from getting firearms, committing crimes, and harming innocent people? My guess is ZERO.

  • Jhomas Tefferson

    The murder rate and gun crime is down over the last 20 years. The only thing that is trended up is press coverage of gun crime. The reality is the US is safer with more gun owners now, then the smaller number of gun owners we had 20 years ago. There is no gun crisis or murder crisis. It is all hyped my the media and bloom berg’s media whore Shannon Watts.

      The “gun violence” problem in this country is a gang and illegal drug trade problem. These same people, responsible for the majority of “gun death”, will, I’m sure, not be a part of the “national responsible gun ownership program” called for in Executive Order 14.

      • ExNuke

        I’m in favor of a National Gun Ownership Program, enough so that I am in favor of making it a law. They should make it a law that every adult who is not a prohibited person is required to buy a gun and demonstrate the ability to shoot it accurately and safely or pay an annual fine. Why not, they can require you to buy insurance?

        • MrApple

          I am very Pro-2nd Amendment but I don’t want anyone to be required to own anything, including firearms or health insurance (Obamacare).

    Newtown was a complete lie—It was a false flag for gun control…

  • Bill of Rights Supporter

    “Encouraged private sellers to run background checks through licensed dealers” Why not just make the background check system available to the public?

    Would it be because there would be no way to establish a meta-registry of gun owners?

    Basically, the White House has accomplished nothing but is touting these items as something that’s going to save lives, which they aren’t!
