    Obama proposes firearm background check changes

    [​IMG]

    HONOLULU (AP) — The Obama administration on Friday announced a pair of executive actions aimed at strengthening federal background checks for gun purchasers, with a particular focus on limiting firearm access for those with mental health issues.

    One proposed rule change aims to clarify terminology used by federal law to prohibit people from purchasing a firearm for mental health reasons. The administration said states have complained that some wording is ambiguous, making it difficult to determine who should be blocked from buying a weapon.

    That is a black community problem. We need to help rid our communities of black on black killings. How,
    I have no idea.

    This no snitching is just getting more and more people killed.

    I know one thing....if it can keep those with mental problems from getting guns from this day forward will be a great help for the future.

    Actually it is not and really has no bearing on the black community since mental issues are not how they categorize violence in our communities they only categorize majority white people with mental issues. Now if the bill had something to do with going after those who are transporting illegal guns into our communities then that would help us.

    No snitching is hurting our community and if you know something you should tell if it is Truth.
