Lawyers within the Justice Dept have this week informed Obama that he has the legal authorization to act on his own in making background checks mandatory across the entire United States. He does NOT need to wait for Congress to pass legislation on this issue, according to his legal advisors. Obama also contacted and spoke with another advisor in the private sector by the name of Bloomberg, who gave him further advice on the matter. Our Congress is usurped. Did Bloomberg somehow pay off Obama to do this? Just how much power and influence do his Billions of dollars give him? http://www.cnn.com/2015/12/16/politics/obama-mike-bloomberg-gun-control/index.html .
