Just watched the press conference and did some digging until the list of orders was made available. This is what i found.


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.

It wasn not as much of a bloodbath I thought it would be, but it's still crap and they can't make me drink the kool-aid! Of course there was applause, that was the liberal MSM.

I never got a permit in the first place. I don't pay for permits to my rights. If you manage to find my gun it is because I am pointing it at you.

Really not trying to be a nit wit here but can you link your source to this information please? I don't doubt your sourced material but with any issue I would like to see the source first before trying to pick it apart.

I must say this looks fairly innocuous - examining existing laws and institutions and their role in preventing gun related crimes. This may be only to make the public think the pressure is off while Biden's working group develops the hard line laws that won't be popular.
I know there is more than this coming.
This is the first wave only just to get our toes wet.

As for

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

He could start by charging those guilty in the Fast and Furious scandal.
Now THAT would be real leadership!

I just watched him speak and sign these executive orders live on the news. What I'm hearing and taking from these newscasters is that he does not need congresses approval to sign these into law? Is this correct/true? Can someone who better understands help explain this to me?
I thought legislation approval would be required?

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

So are these doctors supposed to report this, and to whom?

my opinion only: I think this is in place so that if you are seeing a psychiatrist who feels you may be a danger to yourself or others, he is not legally barred from asking you whether you have guns at home.

Most of this is already law, and these executive orders seem to simply enforce them to some extent. For example, background checks are already required, so the executive order (which ever number it was) is enacted simply to make sure nothing is slipping through the cracks.

There is something strange to me about the term executive action being used in lieu of executive orders.
I'm not sure what the difference is and i can not find a definition for the term.

Is it just me or does it look like none of them actually do anything?

I'm having horrible flashbacks to the days when my office formed groups to discuss the formation of committees to discuss actions that investigated implementations and so on.....

Gets a sigh of relief from me.

Now to just harass my "elected officials" to keep some asinine AWB at bay.

Reading thru many of those I thought back to Fast and Furious and what an absolut contradiction it is for the DOJ & ATF to be involved in any of these orders.

The other thing that bothered me is all the directives toward doctors. So now our doctors are government spies?

Background checks have never been performed on second hand sales. None of the weapons used in the mass shootings were obtained unlawfully. Get ready for a fifty dollar tax when if you are cleared to sell a used gun.

Yes, it's an air ball !
Obama took a good look at the House of Representatives and threw out a bunch of
placebos.


Obama could very easily get impeached by the House of Representatives.
The trial wouldn't last long in the U.S. Senate but who needs the aggravation?

- PUNT ! -

13 to 17 worry or confuse me the most, that or both.

"Maximize enforcement efforts" I hope they put more behind that to prevent abuse of new power.
