On January 5, 2016 – President Obama announced he would take Executive Action to require that anyone in the business of selling guns, would be required to have a licence and conduct background checks, or be subject to criminal prosecution.

As part of his policy announcement, the President said the Federal Govt would hire additional ATF agents to facilitate a faster permitting process and other changes that would “bring an outdated background check system into the 21st Century.”
