List of executive actions Obama
plans to take as part of anti-
Gun violence plan

Fox News, by Staff

Original Article

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

Comments:
0bama just had the gall to say this is the land of the free and always will be. What a pathological liar he is. It won´t be the land of the free while he is ruling. When you see a sentence beginning with "Direct the Attorney General" you should be very afraid.

I thought the Obamacare law was clear in prohibiting questions about gun ownership. He can´t change the law.

I note that Obama´s DOJ has an important part to play in these new gun contorl rules and regulations. This is the same DOJ that continues to coverup and stonewall regarding the DOJ´s illegal transfer of thousands of so-called assault weapons to Mexican drug cartels. Something smells of long dead fish.

With some exceptions, there´s not much on this list that is too onerous. HOWEVER, the list does not address severe prosecution of those who commit crimes with guns. Stop those creatures, and you´ll stop maybe 85% of all crime. And, there´s thankfully nothing addressing types of guns.

Don´t see anything really outstanding here one way or the other. Mainly telling Federal agencies to do what they are already empowered to do. Must be content to leave the tough stuff in Congress´ lap--where it belongs, actually.

Hey what about Holder and his gun running operation? Doesn´t that count here?

I did´t see where he directed Holder to stop running guns to drug lords in Mexico. I guess he isn´t worried about gun violence in Mexico that he and Holder enable.

What the list tells me is that he is not interested in gun violence. If he were he would address mental health issues with congress to enact more stringent laws. This is a photo op for the low info to confuse the low info crowd into thinking he is doing something. This is just a list of things to spend money on.

We never answer questions regarding possession of guns on medical forms. If the question is on a form we leave it blank, and if someone ever asks, we will refuse to answer the question. Actually, my husband did have a conversation with a doctor, who agreed that it is not an appropriate question. It is no one´s business, including physicians, if you have guns in your home.

I love it when 0bama touts Reagan´s 1994 letter on "assault weapons." Don´t forget that Ron Reagan said that his father´s dementia started during his second term and that his doctors diagnosed it in 1992. Did Reagan have the mental capacity to make an informed decision on this in 1994?

I see these as just another way for Barry to create more bureaucrasy and red tape. The Doctor references should be disobeyed by everyone - refuse to ask if you´re a Dr., and refuse to answer if you´re a patient.

Any patient with psychiatric problems will now resist going to a doctor now that they have to be snitches.

What an incredible load of meaningless nothing, Presidential memorandums, DOJ reports, reminders about what agencies are already doing? Talk about a waste of breath.

One made me laugh out loud

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

Let me rephrase

Remind doctors that the Dr Patient confidentiality respected by all legal precedant in the US is VOLUNTARY and that a Dr can tell the government anything he wants to about his patients.

What a tool. Notice, not one call for any actual legislative action, or more directly, no call for any kind of public debate on the matter.

Run little Obammy, Run.

All sizzle, and no meat.
Just a bunch of bureaucratic BS policy changes--most of which the Feds should have been doing anyhow if they were doing their job.
Little/no impact. Just another grandstand by Obama.
As far as my doctor asking me about guns, who cares? I will either tell him to MYOB, or that I have an M1-A1 Abrams tank in my garage, depending on my mood that day.

None of this would have prevented Adam Lanza from going to that school and shooting those children.

His mother had the guns legally.

He was not diagnosed with mental illness by any doctor we´ve heard of. Aspberger´s is not mental illness.

They dance around the pesky HIPPAA (sp?) privacy law. Good luck with that.

This was mostly paper saber-rattling and show biz.

Incremental disarmament. Between Jarold (Jabba the Hutt) Nadler deciding just how many bullets should be required for self defense to my senile idiotic senator Nelson telling me what weapons I should use for hunting this has gotten completely out of hand.

The purpose of the 2nd Amendment is not to protect the rights of hunters...it is to protect the citizens from oppressive government.

When the govt comes after your guns, I´m sure they will have "assault" style weapons. I will have the equivalent....after all...it´s only fair...

Summary of the Obama show today to quote Shakespeare:

Life´s but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.

Well...except another half-billion dollars of wasteful spending...

This is a setup to broadening the diagnosis of mental illness. Just as the definition of ´terrorist´ has been enlarged to include returning veterans, home schoolers and evangelical congregations, look for mental illness to be expanded to include conservative principles, patriotic beliefs and regular prayer.

The guy makes me think of an asp, whatever he does or says.

What a bunch of nothing. I am very surprised. If nothing else why didn´t he at least address the gang culture and the mental health issues. Also what about reinforcing the idea use a gun in a crime automatic prison sentence. If we don´t turn around some of the cultural issues we will never get violence under control. He didn´t even mention the violence in movies and games. I can´t believe this will satisfy his base because they want much stricter controls and outright bans.

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check.

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent
