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.

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.

They can ask, we can ignore.

So no registration of existing weapons?
And no ‘ban’ of selected firearms?

He can’t hope that the Feinstein bill will pass?

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.

This is the one that should scare everyone:

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!

18. Provide incentives for schools to hire school resource officers.

I see the NRA suggestion made it in there.

HIPAA requires that medical information is to be kept confidential from anybody without the patient's consent. It may be that the administration intends to allow information about the "diagnosed" mental instability of an individual to made available in a background check.

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.

Launch a national safe and responsible gun ownership campaign.

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.

Agreed. These bullet points read like what you'd see in a corporate retreat where the company is failing and everyone has been asked to provide ways to keep the company healthy and alive. A lot of bullet points, no real content, e.g. - "Let's all try to do better".

There were three completely irrelevant references to the ACA in the bullet points.

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.

Yep, nice and vague and open to interpretation. That statement will be used for a lot of civil rights violations.

“If a doctor asked me that question, I wouldn’t 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.

Read between the lines people....

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?

Guaranteed that within these seemingly innocent proposals is something that will bite us in the butt.

For example:

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.

MSM logic.

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.
