The Obama Administration announces new gun control regulations, aimed at stopping gun buyers from circumventing background checks and targeting the illegal import of military surplus weapons.

"It's simple, it's straight-forward, it's common sense."

Another volley in the ongoing battle over gun control, Vice President Joe Biden announcing two new orders from the White House.

The first is aimed at keeping illegal military surplus weapons off the streets.  The second would stop gun buyers from bypassing background checks by registering firearms to corporations.

"It's very artful dodge to get around, people who are not capable, legally able of owning weapons, to be able to gain access."

The Obama Administration has been criticized by Congressional Republicans for repeated attempts to bypass Congress on issues like gun control, immigration, and national security.  The White House says, they're only doing the work Congress cannot or won't do.

"Even as Congress fails to act on common sense proposals like expanding criminal background checks and making gun trafficking a federal crime, the President and Vice President remain committed to using all tools in their power to make progress toward reducing gun violence."

Vice President Biden says they'll make gun control a priority as the 201 midterm election season gets underway.

"If Congress won't act, we'll fight for a new Congress.  It's that simple, but we're going to get this done."

That National Rifle Association says the new regulations are misdirected and won't stop criminals from getting guns.  A spokesperson saying the administration has missed the mark when it comes to stopping the violent crime.
