Obama's 2015 budget take aim at American gun owners
By Jim Kouri

The release of the proposed Fiscal-Year 2015 Budget released on Tuesday reveals that President Barack Obama and his minions have not abandoned their mission to control guns in the hands of U.S. citizens, even after the abysmal failures last year in the liberal-left's quest to pass their anti-gun agenda items, according to the White House.

Despite cuts to the nation's defense, homeland security and public safety budgets, Obama's 2015 budget proposal reveals his continued goal of controlling firearms and ammunition in the hands of civilians who wish to protect themselves, their loved ones and their homes.

The FY'15 Budget proposal has devoted cash to improve the background checks conducted by the FBI, better data collection and storage within the National Criminal History Improvement Program (NCHIP) and increased inspections of firearms dealers, according an Examiner report.

President Obama's budget proposal includes money earmarked for helping federal, state and local law enforcement and public health agencies in preventing and responding to shooting rampages that result in multiple casualties.

"The budget provides training for State and local law enforcement to prevent and respond to active shooters and prevent mass casualties, invests in programs to identify mental health issues early and continues the Comprehensive School Safety Program and other initiatives to enhance school security," according to the White House document.

According to critics of President Obama, the nation's Commander in Chief responded to the 2012 shooting spree that left 26 adults and children dead in a Connecticut grade school, using emotion in pushing for measures to reduce gun violence, according to an Examiner news story.

In fact, The Obama White House announced dozens of executive actions designed to improve the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS).

While the White House boasted about their achievements through Obama's executive orders, a series of proposed laws in the wake of the Newtown massacre went no where due to clearly intense opposition from gun rights groups and many Republicans in both houses of the U.S. Congress.
