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

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."

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.

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.

State to send voter registration

Heading off a lawsuit over compliance with a federal voting rights law, California officials have agreed to help millions of state residents register to vote. Under a deal announced Monday by several voting-rights groups, the state will send voter registration cards to nearly 3.8 million Californians who have applied for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act. The move will ensure that many residents can complete or update their registration in time for the June 3 primary election, representatives of the groups said, and bring the state into compliance with the National Voter Registration Act of 1993.

Or how about the Dred Scott case in 1857? Most Americans have probably heard of that one because it said slaves had no standing to sue in federal court because they weren´t citizens. There have been other terrible Supreme Court rulings, but those two stand out on everybody´s lists.

Every week, Eric Cantor huddles in a Capitol Hill basement meeting room with House conservatives, seeking their input on legislation. As House majority leader, he has been a trusted liaison between those activists and the Republican leadership. Yet in recent days, Cantor (Va.) has begun laying out a far more centrist agenda than the one espoused by the core conservatives who have long formed his power base.

As a member of Congress, I was proud to vote for the Affordable Care Act, providing 32 million Americans with access to quality, affordable health care. I was eager to see many of the reforms in the act, including its provision to lower health care costs for women by increasing access to affordable preventive care. Today, as a private citizen, I´m proud to stand with the Green and Hahn families and their corporations, Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood, in seeking to uphold our most cherished beliefs that we, as American citizens, should not be required to relinquish our conscience and

Union organizers are showing up at Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) inspections of an open-shop business that has been targeted by the country’s second-largest union. Professional Janitorial Service (PJS), the largest non-union janitorial company in Houston, and the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) haven’t gotten along for seven years. The company is currently suing SEIU for $9 million, alleging that the union has repeatedly slandered it. But on three recent occasions, SEIU representatives accompanied federal safety inspectors to examine PJS cleaning sites, says Evelyn Meza, the human-resources manager for PJS. The inspections resulted in fines. Such an organized-labor presence on OSHA

I just had the opportunity to spend an afternoon with a Council on Foreign Relations group at the United States Special Operations Command in Tampa, Florida. The famed Admiral William H. McRaven started the briefing, followed by his staff. I expected to learn about Navy SEALs, Army Rangers, and their air force and marine counterparts. I thought I would hear about the exploits of this 67,000-strong command operating in 84 countries, maybe even about the taking down of Osama bin Laden. But that was not to be. Instead, he and the other officers talked at length about their new mission, starting

Militant atheists — this is why people dislike you. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker believes he can do all things through Christ, but an atheist group charges that he cannot do all things through Christ on his official social media platforms. The Freedom From Religion Foundation has demanded Walker remove posts from his official Facebook and Twitter feeds that read, “Philippians 4:13.” “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me,” the verse reads. “This braggadocio verse coming from a public official is rather disturbing,” FFRF co-presidents Annie Laurie Gaylor and Dan Baker wrote in a letter to the governor. “To say, ‘I can

Gallup Suggests Obamacare Responsible

President Barack Obama´s healthcare law may have been responsible for pushing whites to vote Republican and polarizing the country at historic levels, according to a new Gallup analysis. On the four-year anniversary of Obamacare, the implication of the Gallup study is that Obama´s policies--not his race or personality--have been the impetus for the increasing level of racial polarization. The Gallup study found that in 2010, "nonwhites´ net party identification and leanings showed a 49-point Democratic advantage, and whites were 12 percentage points more Republican than Democratic." That "resulting 61-point racial and ethnic gap in party preferences is the largest Gallup has measured

Authorities are searching for more bodies after a massive mudslide in a rural part of Washington state killed at least eight and possibly left more than 100 missing, while crews battle uneven ground and rising waters. A 1-square-mile mudslide struck Saturday morning in Snohomish County, critically injuring several people and destroying about 30 several homes. Eight bodies have been pulled from the scene and authorities described the search for additional survivors to be "grim." John Pennington, emergency response managing director, said there are reports of up to 108 people missing in the mudslide but noted that number is unconfirmed. "This is a large

A pair of potentially catastrophic cases will be argued before the Supreme Court on Tuesday. These cases are brought by privately held, for-profit corporations that are arguing their religious convictions should preclude them from offering employees the health insurance required by law. Specifically, these private employers don’t want to allow their employees’ insurance to cover some forms of birth control because, contrary to medicaland scientific evidence, they believe some birth control causes abortions. Corporations are not people. Corporations cannot have religious views. If religious rights are extended to corporations, it puts us on a slippery slope where any private company

A few weeks ago, I wrote about how the sweeping acceptance of gay marriage in recent years is owed in large part to Christianity. Rejecting the rigidly hierarchical and stratified societies of the ancient world, Jesus Christ taught the equal dignity of all persons, proclaimed that the meek shall inherit the earth, and declared that the last shall be first and the first shall be last. The Western world has been working out the logic of these subversive teachings ever since, with the institutional transformation of marriage being the latest, though surely not the last, example of its social, moral,
