White House comes up with executive actions

According to the White House, these are types of executive actions they will take.

  • Clarify requirement for license(FFL) to sell firearms. The wording is a bit broad, as  anyone who sells gun could be required to obtain FFL, regardless of location. The order doesn't give specific number of firearms sold to be classified as a dealer.
  • Blocking use of trusts. Using trust or corporations to purchase NFA restricted items would be closed.
  • More manpower and funding to FBI(NICS) and ATF(NIBIN, IIC)
  • Increase support for 'smart gun' technology.
