Obama takes gun control actions

Posted By on Fri, Jan 3, 2014 at 1:48 PM

President Obama has issued executive orders to make it easier to detect when people with a background of mental illness get a background check for a gun purchase.

This is otherwise known as a gun control measure.

The gun nuts will tell you the 2nd Amendment is absolute. NO action may be taken to infringe the bearing of arms. If the Founding Fathers wanted blunderbusses kept from the hands of the mentally ill, they would have said so, right?
