President Obama has recently taken the gun control issue into his own hands, sidestepping Congress, to implement new gun laws through executive order. That is how the press reported the issue. In fact, these were presidential memorandums and proclamations as opposed to laws.
The issues include banning assault weapons and high capacity magazines, and performing much more thorough background checks. While most people posing online seem to be against mentally disturbed individuals possessing firearms, this could take guns out of the hands of law abiding citizens.
However, the writing seems to be on the wall. if you want a gun, do what many U.S. citizens are doing, legally purchase a firearm. it is my opinion that if you are thinking about purchasing a gun, now is the time to do so because if you wait, you could be out of luck.
Before restrictive laws are passed and implemented, why not consider a gun trust? This bypasses some of the requirements on the AFT application and protects gun owners from the need to register Class 3 weapons.
