New reports: President Obama priming gun control executive orders

According to new reports and quotes, the White House confirmed that President Obama was preparing a series of executive actions on gun control to move quickly on the issue after the mass shooting in Oregon.

“It’s a high priority and will continue to be until we start to see more progress on this issue in this town,” White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest told reporters Monday at the press briefing.

Earnest said President Obama would “quibble” with critics of the president for not voicing any specific gun control proposals during his press conference, asserting that the White House was working behind the scenes for more executive actions on guns.

“I can tell you that they’re not stumped, they’re continuing to review the law that’s on the books and continuing to consult with legal authorities but also others who may have ideas about what steps that can be taken to keep guns out of the hands of criminals,” Earnest said.

Earnest offered no details for what the White House was working on, but asserted that the process was a “scrub” that was “ongoing.”

Earnest welcomed Hillary Clinton’s own gun control proposals also announced Monday, but admitted that he hadn’t seen the full details of the proposal.

Aligning with other remarks, Earnest criticized the “gun show loophole” for allowing criminals and people with mental problems to buy weapons, blaming organizations like the National Rifle Association for blocking action in Congress on the issue.
