I must have missed the part where private sales require background checks... guess he stopped short of that.

Executive Orders are administrative orders to agencies under the Executive Branch, and those entities that are dumb enough to believe that Obama can order them to do something. The actions he directs his agencies to execute must also have a legal basis in established Federal Statute.

IOW, I am not his employee. I am most certainly not his subject. I won’t give him my guns. I won’t register them.

#16 - Doctors will ask if you have guns in the home.

The whole purpose of this is to vilify gun owners and make them out to be lunatics.

Maybe we could start with asking if people are pedophiles? You know, people who really hurt children?

FUBO!

#14 is patently illegal. The prohibition against such research is currently the law of the land and will remain so until expiration of the current CR or the replacement or omission of the provision by some successive funding bill.

Hmmm. Why do I get the feeling that "challenge" here really means someting more like "force", "coerce", or otherwise "convince" the private sector to do this, whether the market is asking for it or not?

Now we know why the Hussein regime has been encouraging people to sign up for SSDI for mental health reasons, under the guise of running out of unemployment benefits. He wants to take away their guns for having psychological problems. Easy to do on this one.

One thing that comes through - if you want to keep your guns you better never seek medical help for any mental issues (even depression) you think you might have or for any substance abuse issues. If any issues like that hit your digital medical records database you will be SOL.

Pure political posturing...picking fights to build himself up and make proposals to give the impression he is accomplishing great things for the nation. A sad state of affairs that such “leaders” are given the public trust...

Mostly the list is pretty weak in substance.

By linking gun control to mental health hence obummercare, he can declare all gun owners as mentally ill.

The soviets favorite tactic was to label all dissidents as mentally ill to silence them

In the article it says he wants to ban clips holding more than 10 rounds (there’s a grandfather clause) but it’s not listed among the “directives”. Am I missing something?

I’m worried about MD, too. So far the worst things I’ve seen bandied about are a ban on mags over 10 rounds (right now the limit is 15) and adding more “assault weapons” to the banned list. O’Malley mentioned fingerprinting the other day but it wasn’t in the latest list of proposals that I saw.

16. Clarify that the Affordable Care Act does not prohibit doctors asking their patients about guns in their homes.

Someone needs to setup a website that anyone can log into and report medical professionals who ask about fire arms in their patient’s homes. This would out the so called health care professionals and allow patriotic citizens to search for like minded health care providers.

Looks like a bunch of new government programs to me ...more reasons to spend more money we don’t have.

Doctors ALREADY sometimes ask if there are guns in the home.

I have an autistic son — if someone wants to advise me on how to best keep my guns locked up, I welcome that advice. Just not sure WHO is best to give me that advice ...an MD, or someone from the NRA?

I had a female pediatric doctor ask me (with my 4 year old son in the room) if I had any guns in the house. I told her I would answer her question if first she told me how many dildos she had in her house.

I then asked, “oh, I’m sorry, did you find that offensive? I find your question equally offensive.”

game, set, match.

Nothing in those executive orders that is an abuse of power that triggers articles of impeachment.

Was this a social reactive experiment carried out by the FedGov or something?

Any doctor who asks if I have guns in the home will be answered with "Do you have guns in the home and if not, why not? Don't you care about protecting your family?". I have been known to stand physicians on their head on other issues and look forward to this one.

And if they ask my 12 yo girl the question she will tell them all about her 22 single shot plinker and the training she received at the NRA range.
