community safer." in an apparent efefrt to combat recent gun violence, president obama used executive action to impose new restrictions on gun control. those restrictions: a 10 point plan, including requiring dealers who sell firearms on the internet and at gun shows to be licensed and conduct background checks.

"any further discussion about how best to respond to recent tragedies involving firearms should happen in congress." 3 3 nebraska republican ben sasse said "the president should be bigger than the condescending rhetoric and political cynicism we saw today. sadly, president obama is demonizing law- abiding gun owners and undermining the legislative process. 3 this approach will n n end heartbtbaking tragedies but it will poison public discourse." 3 3 and south dakota's mike rounds said "the executive actions the president announced today will make it more difficut for law- abiding citizens to legally obtain firearms and do nothing to fix the problem of gun violence. 3 criminals and terrorists aren't going totobey the law anyway. i will c ctinue to fight against the e president's endless attack on our 2nd
