DOJ Bypasses Congress To Start Building A National Gun Database

IllegalGunsEric “Gun Runner” Holder’s Department of Justice is preparing to announce new regulations designed to expand the national background check system for gun sales.

White House records reveal the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has completed its review of the DOJ rule, one of 23 executive actions ordered by President Obama more than a year ago.

The final rule sets out three changes to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS):

  1. Grant tribal police access to NICS
  2. Authorize law enforcement agencies to use the system to run full background checks before returning guns that have been seized or confiscated during the course of investigations.
  3. To expand consolidated, electronic storage of information on gun purchases that have been denied via the NICS system, according to a rulemaking notice issued in January.

All of this is being done without approval from Congress. President Obama is expected to rubber stamp these proposed regulations  without any additional debate or oversight.  The real question is: “How far will they expand the system?” What will they be storing in NICS and how long will they be storing it? In the past, there have been strict guidelines to prevent abuse. This Executive Order, and the new DOJ recommendations seem to be aimed towards changing these guidelines.

    This government is going to keep trying to disarm us until we overthrow it and replace it with a Constitutional Republic like the Founders intended the U.S. to be.
