(Washington Examiner) President Obama plans to build a new gun control force of 430 agents, more than eight times the size of the team of commandos he is sending to the Middle East to hunt down and destroy ISIS terrorists.
According to a White House fact sheet, the president plans to deploy 200 more Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agents "to help enforce our gun laws."
He also plans to add at least 230 new FBI agents to pour over the backgrounds of gun buyers. Said the White House: "The FBI will hire more than 230 additional examiners and other staff to help process these background checks."
