Hillary Clinton Wants To Use Executive Action To Surpass President Obama On Gun Control

Before Donald Trump won Indiana by a large margin to become the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton already had a plan in place to use executive action “go further than Obama” on gun control. According to The Washington Post, Clinton wants “to broaden requirements for background checks and narrow loopholes that allow largely unrestricted trafficking of guns online.”

So far, Obama used executive gun control to expand background checks to certain sales at gun shows and online, to require taxpayer dollars to be spent on the development of “smart guns,” and to put a gun ban in place for Social Security beneficiaries who cannot handle their own financial affairs. Clinton plans to use executive action to exceed Obama's actions.

Clinton's gun control proposal includes extending the instant background checks indefinitely by changing the amount of time the FBI has on extended checks, placing more regulations on sales at gun shows and guns sold online, allowing crime victims to sue gun manufacturers and gun sellers, and expanding the definition of domestic violence to include dating relationships–then using that expanded definition to ban individuals from owning guns. On October 16, Clinton said the Australian gun ban was "worth looking at" with regard to gun policy in the U.S.
