I don't see how the president can ban the import of anything by executive order. In time such an order would be challenged in court and defeated.
What he can do is empower branches of the existing government or give/take their funding. The president can allow existing branches of the government to share information or even share certain tasks. In the focus of gun ownership, he can influence how background checks are done.
