The Washington Post said Obama intends to take executive action bypassing Congress despite concerns over terrorism and is set to meet with Attorney General Loretta Lynch to finalize his plan.

The Post added:

One of the main proposals Obama is poised to adopt would require some unlicensed gun dealers to get licenses and conduct background checks on potential buyers. The change is aimed at occasional dealers, including some who sell online frequently or rent tables at gun shows but do not have a storefront.

Obama began examining how he could tighten the nation’s gun rules after October’s mass shooting at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Ore. Administration lawyers have spent months reviewing various proposals to make sure they can withstand legal challenges.

Reaction to Abbott’s tweet was pretty much as expected:
