Obama is set to announce his new executive order on firearms today. There's been a lot of hype around the release driven by the White House, but the outline of the order has left many asking "What's the big deal?"
If you were watching the mainstream news this morning, you'd think there's not much to the order. It says that if you're selling guns as a business, you need a license. Don't you already need a license to do that? Why create a separate executive order?
The truth is much more nefarious. It's part of an overall plan by the government to deliberately cloud the law making it difficult to understand and interpret.
Why would someone what to do that? Listen to today's show and find out.
Then it's on to Bernie Sanders grand plan to turn Post offices into banks. Right off the bat, I think that sounds like a killer plan. Let's take an organization that has managed to rack up billions in debt, who can't manage their affairs correctly and let's give them banking power. Nothing could go wrong with this plan.
It's the latest in a series of terrible ideas based on gross misunderstanding of economics and no desire to learn the truth.
All that plus witty banter, free of charge!
