White House "Fact Sheet" on Gun Control Executive Actions

www.whitehouse.gov | The following article is from Whitehouse.gov.  I thought it would be good to have their point  of view documented so people can judge for themselves.  I can't bring myself to include the begining of the article though since it's so political and filled with trigger words and phrases.  Beyond the specifics of  the actions, which may arguably be supported by many people, the manner in which this is being done, by Executive Action, rather than by the  normal legislative process, is alarming.  It smacks of an "ends justifys the means" approach  to leadership.

Texas Governor to Obama: "Come and Take It"

www.dailymail.co.uk | Texas Gov Greg Abbott criticized President Barack Obama's plan to move ahead with possible executive actions on guns in a tweet in which he told the Commander-in-Chief to 'come & take' the state's guns.
 
Obama said in his weekly radio address that he is looking for ways to keep guns out of the hands of 'a dangerous few' without depending on Congress to pass a law on the fraught subject of gun control.
 
He plans to meet his attorney general, Loretta Lynch, on Monday to see what executive actions might be possible. Steps to strengthen background checks could come this week. 
 
At a rally in Biloxi, Mississippi, tonight Donald Trump also pledged to undo any action Obama takes on gun control if he wins the next election.

NRA Uses DOJ Memo To Hammer Obama on Guns

news.yahoo.com | The National Rifle Association is using a Justice Department memo it obtained to argue in ads that the Obama administration believes its gun control plans won't work unless the government seizes firearms and requires national gun registration — ideas the White House has not proposed and does not support.

The NRA's assertion and its obtaining of the memo in the first place underscore the no-holds-barred battle under way as Washington's fight over gun restrictions heats up.

The memo, under the name of one of the Justice Department's leading crime researchers, critiques the effectiveness of gun control proposals, including some of President Barack Obama's. A Justice Department official called the memo an unfinished review of gun violence research and said it does not represent administration policy.
