Former Congressman Joe Walsh tweeted on Thursday, “On Monday, Obama, on his own, to go after guns. It’s war. Defy his executive actions. Time for Civil disobedience.”
Walsh, who is now a radio host on AM 560 The Answer in Chicago linked to a CNN article that announced that President Obama is expected to take new executive action on guns in order to expand background checks on firearm sales.
The Obama administration’s “imminent” announcement comes ahead of the January 12th State of the Union address. Obama’s executive actions would further his unilateral steps of gun control.
CNN reports that White House spokesman Eric Schultz declined to comment on the timing or the content but said that Obama expected a set of recommendations on “unilateral action” to arrive on his desk at the beginning of 2016.
