White House moves to 'strengthen' federal background checks

Post  fshnski on Fri Jan 03, 2014 4:08 pm

The White House on Friday announced two new executive actions it said would “strengthen the federal background check system and keep guns out of the wrong hands.”

The moves are the latest steps by the Obama administration to bypass Capitol Hill and tighten gun control after legislation faltered in Congress last year.

“The Department of Justice (DOJ) is proposing a regulation to clarify who is prohibited from possessing a firearm under federal law for reasons related to mental health, and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is issuing a proposed regulation to address barriers preventing states from submitting limited information on those persons to the federal background check system,” said the White House in a statement.
