Political dissidents need not apply for a permit. You are criminals of the state who rally against your own "good". Swallow your Obamacare like a good child.
This is all a smokescreen. LOCK UP THE CRIMINALLY INSANE AND STOP TRYING TO PUSH THEM INTO NORMAL SOCIETY.
The pills don't work. Saying they "pass" for normal is just looking the other way to a potential ticking timebomb. They can kill with poison, planes, cars, knives, bombs, etc. Not just guns. Quit being stupid, America.
He said that he would direct congress to address the “assault” weapons ban and to limit the magazines to 10 rounds. About 1/4 of the speech was about his orders and the rest was castigating congress (because it’s always their fault) for lax gun control.
You may be on the right track. If you think you need guns to defend your home from tyranny a la the second amendment, you must be crazy, therefore, no guns 4 you. Bank on it.
Ryan in 2016.
I don’t know. The mental health angle bothers me. The Marxists took over that profession years ago. What if aspects of conservatism or a nebulous definition of religious extremism are defined by the mental health profession as “mentally ill”? Conservatives and Christians can’t have guns?????
They are playing chess and I doubt that the end game is something we like very much.
> “I am trying to see what I missed. Basically its saying if someone is a certified nut they should be prevented from buying or owing weapons. Who can disagree with that?”
The question is WHO decides who is a certified nut. Biden (and many more Demoncrats) have called lawful gunowners “crazy” or “nuts” on many occasions.
We don't have all the facts yet. You don't spend 1/2 Billion on a Nothing Burger.
What a load of meaningless BS.
So much for cutting the Federal budget. More government makework jobs.
The emphasis on mental health sounds good. (All the shooters were whacked out on psychotropics.)
I think they intend to start using the health care system to classify gun owners as having a mental problems.
Looks like raising the wrong finger........
Or slipping through the Crack cocaine like here in Detroit. Sure all the gang bangers will properly respect gun purchase procedures and mental health checks.
14. Issue a Presidential Memorandum directing the Centers for Disease Control to research the causes and prevention of gun violence.Stop. I'll save you the time, effort, and our money.
How often, Dr. do you masturbate? Because that certainly would have an impact on your medical decisions regarding my health.
Hilarious!!!!! If we accept the irrefutable premise that the categories of 'dangerous people' include people who direct straw purchases of thousands of semiautomatic 'assault' rifles and cause them to be delivered to Mexican drug cartels, does the lying, cowardly AG Holder have a slight conflict of interest???? Oddly, in all of these 23 executive actions, nowhere appear such terms as gunrunning and straw purchases. Just for openers, how many FEDERAL laws did Holder violate or direct others to violate, in the course of his management and control of the F&F operations? How many of Holder's violations were felonious, leaving aside his totally disgusting and as yet unpunished lies to Congress.
Depends on the definition of "certified nut".
Have you, OR ANY MEMBER OF YOUR HOUSEHOLD, ever seen a psychiatrist of psychologist for depression, anxiety issues, PTSD, or any other psychological issue?
Would you be comfortable with that medical data being stored in a gun-check database?
If a psych is sent a governmental query about you, asking him to certify that you are OK to own a firearm, what percentage of psychs will stick their necks out to so certify? Will their liability insurance provider even ALLOW them to give a positive answer to such an official query?
I've been saying this for awhile. Almost every malady today is met by a doctor suggesting an SSRI like Paxil or Effexor. Even Cymbalta is recommended for pain now. Anyone taking these meds will be looked at differently in the future. Almost every cop I know, (my daughter is a Deputy Sheriff) is on something after a few years on the job. I complained about insomnia and the doc says I need Cymbalta for my back pain keeping me awake. My mom died, another attempt to prescribe SSRI. Almost every time I walk in with a cold, he tries to get me on an SSRI. 25 million people are taking SSRI's now. Are we a nation of "Stepford Wives" now?
My neighbor was on 5mg a day and wanted to quit. He slumped into a weeping pile of gooo and wanted to kill himself. The doc said "Why are you trying to stop?"
I know 3 friends personally enough to know they cannot stop once they start. It's like watching someone withdraw from Heroin.
I'm absolutely sure you won't keep your guns if you take these meds. They will make it seem you are on the edge of mass murder if you just feel a little weepy after your divorce.
Like prosecuting those in the White Hut who LIED to Congress about their involvement in the gun running operation known as Fast and Furious that armed narcoterrorists and led to the deaths of thousands?
Regardless of current law & just to be snarky, what the hell does he think they’ll find ... a “gun” gene that you can manipulate with genetics? Or maybe, more along the lines of Obama’s previous/current behavior, they’ll see if they can find something to call a “gun” gene and then recommend that if a child has it, that they should be promptly aborted ... not unlike Downs Syndrome or other disabled babies. Of course, that “gun” gene will only show up if the parents are conservative.
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.
If this means what I think it means, it requires legislation to get around privacy laws.
3. Improve incentives for states to share information with the background check system.
That sounds like spending our tax dollars. Perhaps the druggie in our White House should ask Congress first.
11. Nominate an ATF director.
I missed that! Our Dear Leader didn't even fill that position?
12. Provide law enforcement, first responders, and school officials with proper training for active shooter situations.
I think he means ask Congress for the money he plans to waste on ineffective training.
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.
Go ahead, but most responsible gun owners don't want to make it harder to use their firearms. i will not pay extra for a less effective weapon.
16. Clarify that the Affordable Care Act does not prohibit doctors asking their patients about guns in their homes.
Let me clarify this. Doctors are limited on what they may ask my children. Those who cross inappropriate boundaries will be fired.
18. Provide incentives for schools to hire school resource officers.
Spending even more of our money without Congressional approval? He sure likes being dictator; too bad the Constitution is inconveniencing him.
While the devil is in the details, the only thing that makes me uncomfortable is all the doctor/mental health stuff.
First, I believe that those with mental health problems that could be potential violent or unstable should possibly under the right conditions be more easily involuntarily committed and prevented from having firearms while committed.
On the other hand, I have seen abuse of committing people as insane in both the USA and Russia/USSR. My concern is that somehow in the details a doctor may be required to ask a patient if they have a firearm and if the answer is yes, they be required to ask a whole bunch of questions to see if the person can be labeled as paranoid, delusional, or some other “classification” that will be noted on their health insurance record, become part of the federal firearms background check database, and be flagged to their medical insurance carrier who will basically say that this is a reason to put them into a different category of health insurance and will result in changes in auto insurance, home owners insurance and a host of other financial problems.
Hopefully the Health Insurance Portability and Privacy Act (HIPAA) medical information privacy regulations are strong enough to prevent general practitioner speculation on mental health from being widely shared with the government and insurance carriers. What scares me is that health insurance is soon to be an IRS activity.
"Obama To Announce Stringent Gun Control Actions"
The CDC is too preoccupied with promoting B F’ing and abortion, to study this.
The shrink community isn’t going to do anything that would discourge patients from paying $300/hr. for listening to them whine.
9. Issue a Presidential Memorandum to require federal law enforcement to trace guns recovered in criminal investigations.
How about requiring fingerprinting, photographing and serial number checks for guns collected at gun buy backs.
My pyschitrist has never asked me. lmao
Oh heck yes! We are not out of the woods by any means.
The separation of powers has a lot to do with this since it was Congress that passed the original Assault Weapons Ban, not a sitting President. So had he come out with essentially the same thing, it would have been challenged on many counts. So I think he blinked on many counts. The whole medical piece is still disconcerting since under Obama Care they have access to ALL our medical records, there no longer is any doctor/patient privacy. You have Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts to ‘thank’ for that one. Could they deny firearms ownership to anyone who they determine is medically unfit to own a firearm thereby nullifying their 2nd Amendment rights? If so, not sure how they will get around even the existing Obama Care law since the NRA made sure language was included that it would NOT be used to determine firearms ownership?? Below is the language found on page 2037 of that monstrous law:
“LIMITATION ON DATA COLLECTION- None of the authorities provided to the Secretary under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act or an amendment made by that Act shall be construed to authorize or may be used for the collection of any information relating to`(A) the lawful ownership or possession of a firearm or ammunition;`(B) the lawful use of a firearm or ammunition; or`(C) the lawful storage of a firearm or ammunition...”
Still bottom line IMHO is there continues to be a major threat to our rights since if they cannot nullify the 2nd amendment one way they will seek another. They never give up, nor should we when it comes to protecting ALL our rights as enshrined in the Constitution and Bill of Rights. Too many Americans paid the ultimate price to defend those rights to have us give them up to anyone, foreign or domestic.
Make relevant data available to the federal background check system.
That worked out well on his background information.Still can’t find any data on how he obtained his ss card.
Dangerous People = Bitter Clingers, Tea Party members, and white males.
Anybody see an agenda here?
1. background check
2. background check
3. background check
5. background check ... gun
6. gun dealers ... background checks
8. gun locks and gun safes
9. trace guns
10. lost and stolen guns
12. active shooter
13. gun violence ... gun crime
14. gun violence
15. gun safety
16. doctors asking ... about guns
17. reporting threats of violence
18. school resource officers
19. emergency response plans
22. mental health ... regulations
23. national dialogue ... on mental health
I am reading between the lines here. The law is focusing on Doctors to mandatory report information on someone health. Medical professionals could effectively risk practice (kicked out of Obamacare system) if prescribe mood altering drugs without asking about guns. If you are on these drugs you are banned from owing weapons.
Psychiatric medications are psychoactive drugs prescribed for the management of mental and emotional disorders. There are six major classes of psychiatric medications:
Antidepressants, which are used to treat disparate disorders such as clinical depression, dysthymia, anxiety, eating disorders and borderline personality disorder.
Stimulants, which are used to treat disorders such as attention deficit disorder and narcolepsy and to suppress the appetite.
Antipsychotics, which are used to treat psychotic symptoms, such as those associated with schizophrenia or severe mania.
Mood stabilizers, which are used to treat bipolar disorder and schizoaffective disorder.
Anxiolytics, which are used to treat anxiety disorders.
Depressants, which are used as hypnotics, sedatives, and anesthetics, depending upon dosage.
In addition, several psychoactive substances are currently employed to treat dependence on other substances. These include acamprosate or naltrexone in the treatment of alcoholism, or methadone or buprenorphine maintenance therapy in the case of opioid dependency.
[i] Great the weasel investigating himself for raiding the hen house. /sarcasm
Communist Goals #26 & 27
26. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrist can understand or treat.
27. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.
Drudge Headline: WAR ON CRAZY: OBAMA DEPUTIZES DOCTORS
My doc asked me that question only once. I informed him that I had spent 7 years in the US Infantry and was trained as a range saftey officer. I then informed him that I would listen to him if he could show either greater saftey experience or greater formal training and certification.
He never bothered to ask me again.
I guess drug companies did not see this one coming. Expect to see heavy lobbying.
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.
Like members of the BATF and FBI who have exhibited any kind of aggressive discussions or behavior?
Actually #1 is pretty bad.
You will now likely have a permanent file on record w/the FBI just for exercising your constitutional right to bear arms.
This is stasi tactics. Do we do the same for exercising free speech?
I suspect when a doctor writes a perscription for anti-depressants he/she will then ask about guns , and perhaps report or record your response .
Some years ago, I was having trouble with insomnia. Doc prescribed Xanax, which was exactly the wrong thing to do. The stuff scared me so much that I only took it for a couple days before disposing of it.
Dunno if you've ever had anything like that, but you just don't.....care. Your pants are on fire? Meh. Whatever. I'm really not sure how to describe it, let alone function on it.
So....I self-prescibed Tylenol PM before bed. Problem resolved itself in short order. Suppose that I should have done that to begin with.
Is there a need for heavy duty meds like what we're talking about? Sure. But the demand, and the realistic need, are two completely different things.
...and of course there’s nothing to address the so-called “gun free zones”.
Nope, they have nothing to do with it!! /s
Maybe they could at least state “Gun Free Zones will be renamed as ‘Easy Victim Zones’”.
In a country that allows firearms due to the principle of fighting tyranny, it amazes me that liberals think they can create a “bubble world” (schools, universities, etc.) where there are no guns and no consequences.
That Being acknowledged by our Declaration of Independence as Creator and "Divine Providence," and by the First U. S. President to be "the Supreme Ruler of the Universe" only specified Ten Commandments for all people, for all situations, and for all time, and when He came to earth, He summed up those Ten as being only One great law:
"Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."
Perhaps if an American President were publicly to acknowledge, as did many previous Presidents, this basic duty of citizens toward each other, emphasizing that the duty is to the Creator and Giver of Life, Liberty, and Rights, then a new tone might be set for youth in the nation.
"Although guided by our excellent Constitution in the discharge of official duties, and actuated, through the whole course of my public life, solely by a wish to promote the best interests of our country; yet, without the beneficial interposition of the Supreme Ruler of the Universe, we could not have reached the distinguished situation which we have attained with such unprecedented rapidity. To Him, therefore, should we bow with gratitude and reverence, and endeavor to merit a continuance of His special favors ~George Washington, 1797 letter to John Adams

Re-read the list. The WhiteyHut blinked.
This is about the limpest bunch of horsehockey. The libs must pulling out their hair at this over-promoted nothingness. We may be witnessing the start of the nobama downhill slide.
The wife said they just wanted to stimulate the economy via guns and ammo sales.
#2 is rather chilling. Basically he wants to drop all HIPAA restrictions on mental health records and share them with basically anyone if it will stop a gun sale.
So, if the government can come up with a gun control bill THIS fast, why can’t they do the same with a budget?
