Barack Obama has ranted and raved for over two years since his plan to herd gun owners into a national gun registration database went up in flames and the grassroots kicked up a storm of opposition.

And Democrats who supported Obama’s gun grabbing scheme were routed in the mid-term elections.

Rather than accept the will of the American people that he uphold the Constitution and that our right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed, Obama threatened to carry on like a dictator.

He’s thundered about using his pen and his phone to impose gun control through executive fiat.

Now, he’s making good on his Constitution-shredding promise in the New Year.

What is his plan?

Criminalize gun ownership and force more firearms dealers into the national gun registration database.

Politico reports:

“According to the White House, the actions include a more detailed definition of which gun sellers must apply for a federal dealers license — and therefore conduct background checks for all sales, in a bid to close the so-called gun show loophole.

The administration is also finalizing a few other rules that were stuck in a bureaucratic backlog, including new requirements for reporting guns lost or stolen in transit, and a measure that would allow more mental health records to be submitted to the federal background check registry by removing patient privacy limits.”

But the Obama regime knows dropping this political stink bomb into the environment – just before the 2016 elections – presents clear danger for Democrats including Hillary Clinton, their anointed front-runner.

So, with the help of their pals in the left-wing press, the Obama regime is planning a Soviet-style propaganda campaign as an attempt to snow the American people into thinking these freedom-stealing executive orders are about “gun safety” and “preventing mass shootings”.

Politico also reports:

“The White House is eager to fend off political attacks and exaggerations from gun rights advocates, so the president is preparing an unusual public campaign to explain his moves. On Monday, he met with Attorney General Loretta Lynch, FBI Director James Comey and the head of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.

He will hold a White House ceremony to announce the measures on Tuesday. And on Thursday, Obama partners with CNN for an hourlong town hall to discuss gun violence in prime time.”

Texas Governor Greg Abbott spoke for everyone who believes in American values when he tweeted out the perfect response:

Abbott’s tweet exploded virally with almost 5,000 retweets and over 5,000 likes.

It’s impossible to have said it any better.
