Obama prepping more executive gun controls, as Josh Earnest vows: 'It's a high priority and will continue'

Go to a gun show, and what's the first thing you have to do to buy? Fill out background check paperwork ... Obama is Clueless.

From podium to pen, President Obama has taken his nationally broadcast rant against gun right after the Oregon community college shooting to his White House desk, and is now preparing a series of Second Amendment crackdowns via executive order.

"It's a high priority," said White House press secretary Josh Earnest at a press conference, Breitbart reported, "and will continue to be until we start to see more progress on this issue in this town."

Earnest vowed to "quibble" with those who accused Obama of going behind closed doors to create more controls, rather than announcing his specific policy recommendations in public.

"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, Breitbart reported.

At the same time, Earnest couldn't provide the sought-after details to members of the media.

He did, however, criticize what he called was a "gun show loophole" that allowed criminals buy guns. The so-called "loophole" doesn't exist at actual gun shows, however. The reference is to private sales, conducted outside the purview of official gun shows where buyers are actually required to fill out background check paperwork on scene.

Earnest also faulted the National Rifle Association for blocking Congress from watering the Second Amendment.
