Posted on 01/16/2013 9:16:55 AM PST by JesseWatters
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.
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.

Number two refers to a specific clause in the affordable health care act that protects patients from intrusive questions about guns. Looks like he wants to eliminate the ONLY good thing in that act. I’ll bet he and Polosi are ticked that it got in there.
It’s mostly a bunch of B.S.
What’s with Precious today? His face looks swollen, his skin looks broken out. He’s listless and depressed. Is he hung over? Sick? Anyone else notice?
16. Clarify that the Affordable Care Act does not prohibit doctors asking their patients about guns in their homes.
Would anyone be surprised to learn that obamacare is at the root of this invasive control?
For every action on this list, we need a similar action regarding our politicians.
He the Imperial President is B.S.
They can ask, we can ignore.
WOW!! This is hugh and series. I bet every criminal in America is crapping in their pants now. Gang members will probably disband and say what are we going to now? Just this list alone will strike terror into any would be do-badder.
If a doctor asked me that question, I wouldn’t answer and would never visit that doctor again.
So no registration of existing weapons?
And no ‘ban’ of selected firearms?
He can’t hope that the Feinstein bill will pass?
If that’s it, it looks like a bunch of political crap.
Obummer never said the words “bill of rights” nor “constitution”- He equated the second amendment with ‘sportsman and hunters- He said that guns took away the rights of “people to assemble”-at Columbine, Sikh temple- This jerk has to go!
Let’s see, he says rights are denied to those killed by gun violence. Maybe he should consider what rights were denied to the people at the Waco compound. He probably slept through that little fiasco.
Number 9 should uncover the source of Fast and Furious.
13. Maximize enforcement efforts to prevent gun violence and prosecute gun crime.
There's his catch all. The man is no better than an islamic terrorist, hiding behind children, as if to deflect any criticism. What an absolute coward!
I see the NRA suggestion made it in there.
Agreed. Nothing like what I imagined he would do.
Agreed. Nothing like what I imagined he would do.
Given the left-wing bias of the APA, it won't be long until everybody is diagnosed with some type of unprovable impairment that would exclude them for lawfully possessing a firearm.
That's the one on the list that concerns me most. Very broad and lacking definition.
That’s the most nefarious of all of them. When your doctor asks you tell them NO. It’s NONE of their business!
This one, in particular, sounds ominous.
Is that the theme from "Jaws" I hear in the background?
Yes. That is the one I was thinking of when I posted my comments. Number 2 is actually about Hipaa, but related.
And his clarification regarding 16 is wrong. Nice try Osama.
Personally, I think the NRA should work to make guns safe, legal, and rare.
“Lets see, he says rights are denied to those killed by gun violence.”
How about the rights denied to babies that survive abortion? He is all for letting them die unattended!
There is no way Diane’s bill will pass in it’s current form if at all.
Massive increase in centralized control and oversight.
He will ask your children about your guns
9 and 10 should be applied to Fast and Furious
There were three completely irrelevant references to the ACA in the bullet points.
That’s the one on the list that concerns me most. Very broad and lacking definition.
Thw whole thing is. It’s like a campaign speech. It’s pointless.
That clause in the Affordable Care Act does not prevent Drs. from asking. It prevents Drs. and Insurance entities from creating a database with the answers and using such data to deny coverage or increase premiums. They can ask all they want. See EO #16.
“This is the one that should scare everyone:
13. Maximize enforcement efforts to prevent gun violence and prosecute gun crime.”
Yep, nice and vague and open to interpretation. That statement will be used for a lot of civil rights violations.
Republicans still control the House, right? They have oversight over agencies and their funding, right?
“If a doctor asked me that question, I wouldnt answer and would never visit that doctor again.”
That question was on a form I completed at a new doctor I was going to about two years ago. I answered the question with another question: “Why the hell am I being asked this question to begin with? What does this have to do with my health care?” I’m sure it was duly submitted to the proper DHS intel gathering center.
Prepare to be labeled "crazy" and / or put on a terrorist watch list....Then disarmed.
Obama is evil, he's feminine, he's a marxist, BUT HE IS NOT DUMB.
He's done exactly what we were worried about and folks aren't seing it !
How about rolling back 50 years of liberalism that has convinced people that there is no right and no wrong?
How about rolling back the abortion culture that teaches people that human life is worthless?
How about getting guns out of the hands of violent criminals?
What does “maximize” mean?
Guaranteed that within these seemingly innocent proposals is something that will bite us in the butt.
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.
Hmmm... “categories of individuals” that constitute “dangerous people”...??? As judged by that paragon of virtue, Eric Holder???
Hint: Black Panthers NO. Free Republic posters YES.
My Dr. has gun and hunting magazines in his office.
Not a Time or Newsweek to be found in there for 5 years now
crazy people are prohibited from owning a gun.
anyone who has a gun is crazy
anyone who wants a gun is prohibited from owning a gun.
next it will be anyone who wants private property.
THE MSMS IS the enemy.
LOL. Attended a few, haven’t you?
This should be the clarion call to all of those that think we can survive Obama. Once they have the 50%+1 vote, they will ban guns and they will come for them.
Does this mean ER Doctor’s can now report drug addicts clogging up the ERs to the federal government and get them on a no buy list?
That's the old Jedi Knight mind trick.
DITTO: that, eye wash for the morons.
