    As I said all along, nothing on magazine or assault rifles being banned. Instead, 23 directives where some sound good, will cost more money and probably not change a damned thing.

    Gun haters, weeping and gnashing of teeth for you.


    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.

    3. Improve incentives for states to share information with the background check system.

    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.

    5. Propose rulemaking to give law enforcement the ability to run a full background check on an individual before returning a seized gun.

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

    7. Launch a national safe and responsible gun ownership campaign.

    8. Review safety standards for gun locks and gun safes (Consumer Product Safety Commission).

    9. Issue a Presidential Memorandum to require federal law enforcement to trace guns recovered in criminal investigations.

    10. Release a DOJ report analyzing information on lost and stolen guns and make it widely available to law enforcement.

    11. Nominate an ATF director.

    12. Provide law enforcement, first responders, and school officials with proper training for active shooter situations.

    13. Maximize enforcement efforts to prevent gun violence and prosecute gun crime.

    14. Issue a Presidential Memorandum directing the Centers for Disease Control to research the causes and prevention of gun violence.

    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.

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

    17. Release a letter to health care providers clarifying that no federal law prohibits them from reporting threats of violence to law enforcement authorities.

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

    19. Develop model emergency response plans for schools, houses of worship and institutions of higher education.

    20. Release a letter to state health officials clarifying the scope of mental health services that Medicaid plans must cover.

    21. Finalize regulations clarifying essential health benefits and parity requirements within ACA exchanges.

    22. Commit to finalizing mental health parity regulations.

    23. Launch a national dialogue led by Secretaries Sebelius and Duncan on mental health.

    Now that this is a put to bed, time to re(focus) on the broke state of the country, and the debt ceiling hilarity.
     
  4. So all the hysteria about the president personally taking over the country and voiding the Constitution was just that, hysteria.

    It seems as though the White House is recognizing the mental health problem and is trying to work on that.

    Those mandates seem sensible so they probably could have been written up as a bill and it would probably have gotten the votes necessary. I wonder why they didn't try to go through congress.

    So your doctor can ask if you have firearms. If you are acting crazy or you are taking psychoactive meds and you tell your doctor that you have weapons is he/she obligated to report that?
     
  9. Those voices were heard loud and clear as he mentioned the "tyranny outcry" in the announcement. He showed restraint by not listening to the radicals advising him. The days ahead will prove if this is the case.
     
  10. I don't think the crazies on the right influenced Obama one way or the other, especially the freshman Texas crazy who threatened to impeach Obama, what a joke. Obama showed his leadership today and those on the right want to take credit for it, they can't.
