14 Ways Obama Can Push
Gun Control Without Congress

Mother Jones, by Tim Murphy & Adam Serwer

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/14/2013 10:35:10 AM

By Thursday afternoon, it was clear that Vice President Joe Biden’s charms weren´t going to be enough to persuade the National Rifle Association to get on board with gun control legislation. Following a 95-minute summit at the White House, the NRA issued a curt press release vowing never to surrender. "We were disappointed with how little this meeting had to do with keeping our children safe and how much it had to do with an agenda to attack the Second Amendment," the organization said. Instead, the nation’s leading gun group pledged to take its "commitment and meaningful

As if 0bama and the Democrats need any encouragement.

Of course I feel dirty for going to that site, however, upon reading the proposals, I would say most folks - wouldn´t have an issue with at least a half-dozen of them (prosecute those who try to purchase a gun illegally, add a 2nd serial number in a hard to access area of the gun (similar to hidden VIN numbers), background checks for gun store employees, database of the mentally ill for inclusion on Insta-check, investigate thefts of 5 or more guns, DoJ taskforce to combat gun trafficking (IRONIC - considering Fast & Furious!)).

The question is, why has BHO not done these things already?

When I read articles on ANY AND ALL issueS that appears to have an agenda. I try to look at the background of the writer. Also his or her connection to a group or magazine. In this case Mother Jones Mag. Which I seem to recall some of their connection past or present might have been Communist or at leasT Socialist.

Following is a encyclopedia description of Mother Jones Mag.

The magazine was named after Mary Harris Jones, called Mother Jones, an Irish-American trade union activist, opponent of child labor, and self-described "hellraiser". She was a part of the Knights of Labor,[8] the Industrial Workers of the World,[8] the Social Democratic Party,[8] the Socialist Party of America,[8] the United Mine Workers of America,[8] and the Western Federation of Miners.[8]

The stated mission of Mother Jones is to produce revelatory journalism that in its power and reach informs and inspires a more just and democratic world.[9]

Mother Jones is published by the Foundation for National Progress, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization. Mother Jones and the FNP are based in San Francisco, with other offices in Washington, D.C., and New York.

Wow, that´s some lede.

If there were any honesty at all at Mother Jones, it would read thus:

"By Thursday afternoon, it was clear that the NRA´s charms weren´t going to be enough to persuade Vice pResident Biden to get on board with respecting the 2nd Amendment."

I have a real problem with a database of the "mentally ill". Ever read the HIPPA declaration you get at the Dr´s office? Why not a national database, accessable to the government of all your mnedical records. What would constitute "mentally ill" sufficient to deny gun rights? Rampaging youretts syndrome? A severe dislike of high places, or irrational fear of spiders? IS someone who has been caught railing against the government in seemingly deranged fashion too dangerous to trust with firearms?

A criminal database I can understand, being convicted of a felony means you lose your rights to a firearm. But thats after a Judge and Jury say so. What if you enter an ER babbling incoherently hearing voices. Initial diagnosis is gonna be your off your rocker but months later they find out you had a complication due to a drug interaction. Are you ever going to get your name off that list?

WHo decides who goes on the list? The Dr? Are we going to turn even more law enforcement and social work responsibility to the MD´s? Would it require a hearing in front of a judge to get you on the list. I hope that at least that siple measure would be taken.

None of that would have stopped even one of the bad guys. A list is not the answer, it cannot be because one of the favoprite tools of tyrants is labeling enemies as mentally incompetant and locking them away. Too many envision the "mentally ill" list to be developed on tips from neighbors, observations of strangers and prying into private medical files "just in case".

No thanks.

All such trial balloons ignore the very simply written phrase: "... shall not be infringed."
And that means period. No caveats.

Re #6: A national database of medical records is coming. It is mandated by the health control law (a.k.a Obamacare). All providers must implement Electronic Medical Records systems by 2014 or face penalties. And the systems must support standard interfaces so that data mining can be performed on them, supposedly for fraud audits but along with being a huge invasion of privacy its really a way to control who gets what health care. The data will used to by bureacrats to determine what types a care are appropriate (in other words they will be used my the death panels) and I have no doubt whatever that "studies" of the data will show that preferred victim groups such as blacks and gays are being underserved and providers will be sued and have to practice affirmative action medicine, and that just scratches the surface of the horrors hidden in the depths of health control law.

14 ways, is that so? Well I got one that over rules your 14. He ain´t got no authority over
our guns in any way shape or form. If your state legislatures and in particular your county Sheriff, goes along with any gun grab, them they side with tyranny and deserve to be treated as domestic enemies.

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

Sheesh! Talk about a complete ingrate... Many people suspect that the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) instigated an over the top paramilitary confrontation with Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy at the behest of Senator Harry Reid especially since the new BLM director, Neil Kornze, was an aide to Reid. So how does Harry´s son, Rory Reid, thank the BLM rangers for putting their lives at risk over desert tortoises that are being euthanized by the Feds? Why, he slams them as "losers" on Las Vegas television station KSNV where Rory serves as a commentator from the left. You can see Reid in

Washington Elite Nutritionist Goes

Masters Win at Waffle House

After his Masters victory, pro golfer Bubba Watson celebrated with his family at a Waffle House. Pictures tweeted from there went viral. Waffle House appreciated the appreciation. What´s not to like about this great story? Apparently some self-appointed nanny state-loving guardians of nutrition like Katherine Tallmadge believe that Watson set a bad example for Americans by eating there. Oh, and with her powers of telepathy, she just knows that Watson´s a complete phony about what he really eats. She went after Watson on one of Neil Cavuto´s Fox programs yesterday, and in doing so caught talk show host Rush Limbaugh´s

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Without mentioning reports that the man accused of shooting up a Jewish Community Center over the weekend was apparently a fan of the left´s Max Blumenthal, CNN National Security Analyst Peter Bergen exploited the murders to claim the American Right is more deadly than jihadists. In fact, since 9/11 extremists affiliated with a variety of far-right wing ideologies, including white supremacists, anti-abortion extremists and anti-government militants, have killed more people in the United States than have extremists motivated by al Qaeda´s ideology. According to a count by the New America Foundation, right wing extremists have killed 34 people in the

Jeff Sessions (R-AL), the ranking member of the Senate Budget Committee and arguably the leading intellectual force against amnesty in Congress, is coming out hard against a proposal backed by Majority Leader Eric Cantor to grant amnesty to illegal alien DREAMers who enlist in the military. “We are now in a period of very large troop reductions.

It’s not every day that Bill O’Reilly accuses someone else of expressing “right-wing paranoia,” but that’s what happened Tuesday night when he faced off with Fox News contributor Monica Crowley over a proposed solution to the controversy over voter ID laws. O’Reilly began his show by giving a soft endorsement to an idea put forward by former President Bill Clinton that would add photos to social security cards, which American citizens are already required to have in their possession. “I am all for combating voter fraud by using voter I.D.,” Crowley told O’Reilly. “My issue with the social security card in particular

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it
