NRA Threatens To Sue Obama Administration Over New Gun Laws

New regulations make it tougher to obtain guns
The National Rifle Association (NRA) are planning on lawyering up against new gun regulation rules that the Obama Administration reportedly will be introducing soon.
The new proposed gun regulation rules would include, as reported by The Daily Beast and Newsweek:
- A national electronic system designed to make background checks for handgun buyers simpler and faster, leaving an electronic paper trail under a law named for James Brady, Ronald Reagan’s press secretary who was wounded in the 1981 assassination attempt on the president.
- A new reporting requirement that federally licensed gun shops report any person who tries to buy two long-arm weapons near the Mexican border over a five-day period.
- Tougher sentencing guidelines for straw buyers that Holder’s department pushed through procedural hoops at the U.S. Sentencing Commission earlier this year.
The Administration says that these new rules will stifle “straw buying” operations where someone buys firearms at gun shows and sells them to someone else -- or as we say it in the city, “flipping guns.”
