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.

What does “maximize” mean?


Also, he says he wants to maximize enforcement in order to prevent gun violence.

Which is it? Enforcement or prevention? Two different things. Is he going to announce the hiring of Superman to prevent crime? Or maybe Batman and The Boy Wonder?

Or is he going to create a new Agency called the Bureau of Pre-Crime? The ersatz Thought Police? Very ambiguous and thereby, dangerous.

We need to realize that this is what the Usurper is saying in public, not necessarily what he will do.


6. Publish a letter from ATF to federally licensed gun dealers providing guidance on how to run background checks for private sellers.

Why would a private seller have to use an FFL holder?

Here's my take:

1) The ATF will announce that gun-show organizers are considered to be firearms dealers and all firearms sold at gun shows must have a background check performed.

2) The ATF will announce that all sales of firearms are considered transactions covered by the Gun Control Act.

See? A wave of the magic administrative wand and no more "gun show loophole" and no more private sales of firearms.

We need several states to make it clear that Federal officials trying to enforce any bullcrap like this will be arrested and will be prosecuted and will not be released based on any order of a Federal court.

Yep. Under the leadership of John Boehner.

Yeah, we’re pretty much screwed.

Obama has bigger fish to fry. He is choosing to pick his fights carefully. This one on gun control is pretty low down on his totem pole as compared to other issues such as immigration in order to preserve the latino vote for the Dems next election; and the debt ceiling and sequestration issues are coming up in the next two months. Obama isn’t going to expend too much capital on this issue. He’s focusing on much bigger battles.

Obama knows if he steps too far into the gun issue, he’ll lose a lot of gun toting Dems as well as Pubs over this. He also knows that if he steps too far it would be the last straw that broke the camel’s back and there would be cries for impeachment by the Pubs, or it would get immediately tossed into the courts where he might very well lose, and he would get no compromise from and would lose the Pub controlled House bigtime on all future issues. He has too much to lose here and not enough to gain. I could see Obama taking another stab at this issue more towards the end of his term of office possibly, but not now.

Sorry, Obama is a remarkably stupid individual. He's managed to surround himself with others who are either thuggish or just as stupid.

Frankly, they have no idea what to do about head cases or street thugs ~ if they started locking up those folks and taking away their access to firearms they wouldn't have anybody left who could attend White House barbeques!

I do keep a paint ball gun in my trunk :). By their definition, it sounds like an ‘assault weapon’

"Go to a doctor and say your stressed out or dealing with anxiety? Maybe that will put you into a new group disqualified from having a gun. Post a rant on the Internet? Categorizes you as having anger issues. No guns for you!"

Yep. This looks like the BATF will have complete access to everyone's medical records which under Obamacare are all digitized and kept in a federal database. Thus, if you want to keep your guns you better not seek medical help if you think you may have depression any other mental issues or if you think you may have a substance abuse problem. If the Doc asks about guns in the house just say "no". Refusing to answer or asking what that has to do with anything will just get you in the database as "refused to answer" and will be considered the same as "gunowner" to the Feds.

Rush...Obama intentionally pushing buttons wanting to get people upset. Why?

Authoritarianism. Obama and his kids are more important than yours. His family and power group will have security. There is a class system. Your kids are not as important. State comes 1st.

your individual rights are not what matters...America becomes like rest of world.

Maybe he should consider what rights were denied to the people at the Waco compound. He probably slept through that little fiasco.

Was he still huffin' and puffin' with the Choom Gang back then?

He will ask your children about your guns.

0bama will enact a snitch program and offer a bounty that will encourage your neighbors and liberal relatives to turn you in.

I can fully envision a pediatrician asking a mother if there are guns in the home during a regular visit.

Umm...the answer is always 'no'. Or, if you must, invoke the 5th amendment...while you can.

#5. Sieze guns now. Try to justify it later. I can lose my gun for no good reason but still have to beg to get it back.

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

He may me required to ask. We can refuse to answer, or lie our butts off, depending on individual preference.

>> Which is it? Enforcement or prevention?

When I read between the lines on this one, I come away thinking the purpose is to come down HARD not on gun owners but on gun *dealers*.

How many dealers do you think have a perfectly clean accounting of inventory vs. 4473s? Are they in need of stepped-up “enforcement” of existing rules to “prevent” guns getting into the wrong hands?

Make ‘em miserable, drive a lot of the smaller ones with less stamina out of the business.

That leaves fewer, bigger ones (WalMart, Cabela’s, Big Five, etc.) — and those are much easier to pressure.

"I haven't seen him today but hear he looks bad. Wondering if he got told to stand down on the hard stuff. Anyone with common sense would have seen he was ready to set off a nuclear political storm."

Just a thought...perhaps the Molon Labe sticker plastered of the Commie in Chief Cruiser and people showing up at the door of his Gun Smuggling AG rattled his cage? You have to remember he is a tin horn dictator. He never expected to get the resistance he has recieved. Best Gun Seller in the History of the World! And his kids get to see him called a "Elitist Hypocrite".

See EO #16.

Yeah, I made a follow up comment that what I was actually thinking of was what was addressed in 16. My bad.

but the rest seems like Obama bailed.

That’s my take too. Looks like they are not utter and complete incompetents after all. They figured out that there were some clear constitutional limitations.
