New gun control measures are legal, could save lives

The White House announced new executive actions on gun control, including a requirement for those “in the business of selling firearms” — including online or at gun shows — to register as a licensed gun dealer.

As a result of the move, the background checks would be required for individuals purchasing firearms in those ways. There is currently no licensing requirement for private sellers online or at gun shows, and only licensed dealers are required to conduct background checks on individuals.
