If anything, these 23 orders prove Obama is nowhere near going after your guns. End of story.

I think that those Executive Orders are an excellent start. Bravo Mr President!

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?
Since Doctors and our Health Care industry are now under Obamacare guidelines. Doctors can legally ask if you have a gun in your home, before treatment. It won't be long until that question becomes mandatory for treatment. It's another way to pinpoint where guns are located, and who has them.

17. "Release a letter to health care providers clarifying that no federal law prohibits them from reporting threats of violence to law enforcement authorities."
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.
Again only my opinion but I think 17 is to clarify that if psychiatrist is told by a patient that he or she may be thinking about committing an act of violence, there is no law against them reporting that to law enforcement. No legal ramifications for breaking doctor/patient privilege.

This is not about more thorough checks it is about getting second hand sales of guns to go through the same procedures as new guns. In the past Americans have been able to give or sale a used gun to anyone they deem worthy. It seems now that we are no longer trusted.
