Just the other day I was wondering why the media and Obama administration hadn’t done anything to punish the massive sales of guns/firearms on #BlackFriday this year, which turned out to be the best ever in sales

Now it seems like he has! Obama and Valerie Jarrett are looking to go around Congress on this measure. Obama must be feeling his oats as a lame duck president because he’s doing things now knowing he’s almost at the end of his presidential term.
According to the Associated Press:
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama’s advisers are finalizing a proposal that would expand background checks on gun sales without congressional approval.
White House adviser Valerie Jarrett says the president has asked his team to complete a proposal and submit it for his review “in short order.” She says the recommendations will include measures to expand background checks.
Jarrett spoke Wednesday night at a vigil for the victims of the Newtown shooting, according to a summary provided by the White House.
After the mass shooting in Roseburg, Oregon, Obama said his team was looking for ways to tighten gun laws without a vote in Congress. White House officials have said they’re exploring closing the so-called “gun show loophole” that allows people to buy weapons at gun shows and online without a background check.
