Why we even have a legislative branch in the federal government anymore is beyond me.  They have long become spineless and irrelevant and Obama is capitalizing on that.

As posted today in my Baaad News page, the almighty king of Amerika has finally released 23 mandates/executive orders to help move his gun control agenda forward, using children of the useful idiots as shields.  Many will see most of this as benign--and already in play--but don't be fooled.  All of these are written as vaguely as possible and open to as broad interpretation as can be imagined.  No specifics, of course- only generalities.  Be it as it may, those who are awake and aware can see it for what it is.  I am relisting the 23 points with my brief analyses next to each one.

 

The following is a list, provided by the White House, of executive actions President Obama plans to take to address gun violence.


1. Issue a Presidential Memorandum to require federal agencies to make relevant data available to the federal background check system. (Define "relevant")

2. Address unnecessary legal barriers, particularly relating to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, that may prevent states from making information available to the background check system. (WAY too broad; now the government will know more about your health history than your caregivers.)

3. Improve incentives for states to share information with the background check system. (What does that mean? Usually involves force with consequences for non-compliance)

4. Direct the Attorney General to review categories of individuals prohibited from having a gun to make sure dangerous people are not slipping through the cracks. (Oh, I'm sure. Thanks, Hitler)

5. Propose rulemaking to give law enforcement the ability to run a full background check on an individual before returning a seized gun. (You subscribe to Glenn Beck and the NRA? No gun for you!)

6. Publish a letter from ATF to federally licensed gun dealers providing guidance on how to run background checks for private sellers. (The feds REALLY need this; more restrictions on sales)

7. Launch a national safe and responsible gun ownership campaign. (Propaganda superstore)

8. Review safety standards for gun locks and gun safes (Consumer Product Safety Commission). (Make it harder to defend yourself when needed)

9. Issue a Presidential Memorandum to require federal law enforcement to trace guns recovered in criminal investigations. (Goodbye state sovereignty, hello federal police state)

10. Release a DOJ report analyzing information on lost and stolen guns and make it widely available to law enforcement. (Lies and propaganda)

11. Nominate an ATF director. (Oh, yippee; will be a Marxist/socialist for sure)

12. Provide law enforcement, first responders, and school officials with proper training for active shooter situations. (No firearms will be involved; unarmed "try-to-run-away-awareness" training)

13. Maximize enforcement efforts to prevent gun violence and prosecute gun crime. (Profiling; actions against what you MIGHT do; guilty until proven innocent)

14. Issue a Presidential Memorandum directing the Centers for Disease Control to research the causes and prevention of gun violence. (Because owning guns is a disease, of course)

15. Direct the Attorney General to issue a report on the availability and most effective use of new gun safety technologies and challenge the private sector to develop innovative technologies. (Make "allowed" guns too expensive and make the ammo expire)

16. Clarify that the Affordable Care Act does not prohibit doctors asking their patients about guns in their homes. (Because owning a gun makes you sick and, therefore, and enemy of the state, of course)

17. Release a letter to health care providers clarifying that no federal law prohibits them from reporting threats of violence to law enforcement authorities. (Again, profiling folks who haven't committed a crime; thought police; can't trust your doctors; doctors' interpretation of what you MIGHT do)

18. Provide incentives for schools to hire school resource officers. (More tax dollars being spent to push socialist propaganda in government-run schools; will NOT be armed, nor able to defend anyone or anything)

19. Develop model emergency response plans for schools, houses of worship and institutions of higher education. (Right; pacifier)

20. Release a letter to state health officials clarifying the scope of mental health services that Medicaid plans must cover. (Needs no explanation)

21. Finalize regulations clarifying essential health benefits and parity requirements within ACA exchanges. (Because guns make you unhealthy, of course)

22. Commit to finalizing mental health parity regulations. (Because owning a gun makes you crazy, of course)

23. Launch a national dialogue led by Secretaries Sebelius and Duncan on mental health. (LOL!! Have the socialist nutjobs teach us how to be smart and healthy! Let the inmates run the asylum!)
