Glenn breaks down the 23 executive orders

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Seemingly benign, a closer look at the new gun orders unveiled by the President yesterday reveals typical progressive agenda at play. These 23 orders don’t ban guns outright but they set a disturbing precedent going forward and lay the groundwork for future action.

“Now I didn’t get a chance to watch the coverage last night on – what is it – the 23 executive orders,” Glenn said this morning. “By the time I went on the air yesterday the reports from the media were it’s not so bad.”

“Have you read these things? This is a progressive time bomb,” Glenn said.

What were some of the ones Glenn was most concerned with?

END THE FREEZE ON GUN VIOLENCE RESEARCH, INVESTIGATE THE CAUSES AND PREVENTION OF VIOLENCE, AND EXPLORE THE IMPACT OF VIOLENT MEDIA IMAGES AND VIDEO GAMES: For years, Congress has subjected the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to restrictions ensuring it does not “advocate or promote gun control,” and some members of Congress have claimed this restriction prohibits the CDC from conducting any research on the causes of gun violence. However, public health research on gun violence is not advocacy. The President is directing the CDC and other research agencies to conduct research into the causes and prevention of gun violence, and the CDC is announcing that they will begin this research. The Administration is calling on Congress to provide $10 million for the CDC to conduct further research, including investigating the relationship between video games, media images, and violence. 

“What do you think the CDC is going to say about guns?” Glenn said.

“It’s a sick culture, and the problem lies in the home and parents maybe should pay attention to their kids,” Pat said sarcastically. “You think that’s what they’re going to say?”

“No, I don’t,” Glenn said.

What else bothered Glenn?

Address unnecessary legal barriers that prevent states from reporting information about those prohibited from having guns: Some states have cited concerns about restrictions under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act as a reason not to share relevant information on people prohibited from gun ownership for mental health reasons. The Administration will begin the regulatory process to remove any needless barriers, starting by gathering information about the scope and extent of the problem.

“Well, now the government can go around HIPAA.  What does HIPAA do? HIPPAA prevents you from seeing your children’s information.  That’s all it does. Because now the government can see it.  You just can’t. So anything that the doctor says about your kids – you can’t get any of the information on your kids because they’re proteced under HIPAA. So all of the protection is not on the side of the consumer, the protection is to make sure that you don’t have access to anybody.  But the government has access to everybody’s. No thank you.

“He also has deputized all of our doctors, and now that the doctors have to decide ‘Should this person be carrying a gun?’ The doctors have to decide. The doctors have to report.  If my doctor asks me ‘Do you have any guns?’ I’m going to say ‘Go to hell.’ ‘Well, I have to ask this’ ‘Well I’m going to answer: I moved to Texas.  I’m proud to be a Texan.  Maybe you should grow a set.  Are you Texan? Are you a stooge? Are you a doctor or are you a policeman?  What are you?’”

“The doctor situation has got to be redesigned.  They have so screwed up our healthcare system, and nobody knows it yet.  There’s no way — I know a lot of doctors they’re not going to do that.  And what will happen they’ll go under more and more and more pressure.  They have to do it or they’ll be violating the law,” Glenn said. “What does that mean? So now your doctor becomes a policeman.  What does that mean for your healthcare? You going to have open conversations with your doctor anymore? You can’t trust your doctor because there’s no HIPAA with your doctor.  No thank you.”

As Stu pointed out, this is progressive foundation building. While these executive orders weren’t a grab for the guns right now, it sets up a scenario that when the next tragedy happens they have all the studies to show how dangerous it is to have guns.

Glenn said, “This is the way that the progressives do it.  Make no mistake that what the President did was stomp all over your Second Amendment rights. He has stomped allover or private conversations with your doctors.  He has made the situation in this country much worse because if there was anybody who had some sort of psychiatric problem that that had access to guns they are certainly not going to go to doctor or not being taken to the doctor until the very last minute.”

“How much more trouble is this country country in? How much more danger are our children in because of what he did yesterday? I contend a lot.  I contend a lot,” Glenn said.

The Wall Street Journal provided a summary of the 23 Executive Orders:

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.

7. Launch a national safe and responsible gun ownership campaign.

8. Review safety standards for gun locks and gun safes (Consumer Product Safety Commission).

9. Issue a Presidential Memorandum to require federal law enforcement to trace guns recovered in criminal investigations.

10. Release a DOJ report analyzing information on lost and stolen guns and make it widely available to law enforcement.

11. Nominate an ATF director.

12. Provide law enforcement, first responders, and school officials with proper training for active shooter situations.

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

14. Issue a Presidential Memorandum directing the Centers for Disease Control to research the causes and prevention of gun violence.

15. Direct the Attorney General to issue a report on the availability and most effective use of new gun safety technologies and challenge the private sector to develop innovative technologies.

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

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

18. Provide incentives for schools to hire school resource officers.

19. Develop model emergency-response plans for schools, houses of worship and institutions of higher education.

20. Release a letter to state health officials clarifying the scope of mental-health services that Medicaid plans must cover.

21. Finalize regulations clarifying essential health benefits and parity requirements within ACA exchanges.

22. Commit to finalizing mental-health-parity regulations.

23. Launch a national dialogue led by Secretaries Sebelius and Duncan on mental health.

    Nutshell summary – this is a blatant and deliberate grab for control and power over our lives by the administration. 

    Answer me this question, if ‘gun violence’ (the new PC term for gun grabbing and control) was of such paramount concern for Obama why did he not demand gun legislation be passed across the board during the two years when the Democrats held Senate, House and White House?

    In those two years there would be nothing from the Conservatives that could have stopped them in the end.

    Of all these recommendations, number 10 may be my favorite!  You have to be kidding me – the DOJ “analyzing information on lost and stolen guns…..”  What a joke.  Isn’t it The DOJ and BATFE who participated in the heinous gunrunning to Mexican drug thugs, resulting in the murder of at least one U.S. Border Patrol Agent (Brian Terry) and countless other murders?  This administration is the worst, the very worst, in my lifetime and I believe in the history of our country.  We cannot let them get away with this nonsense and stand up and say no.  Just refuse to comply.  If we allow this infringement and these Unconstitutional actions to stand it will be to our great peril.  Look only to past worldwide history on gun banning and confiscation to see where it leads – mass murder of citizens.  Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot, Lenin, Mao, and Castro come readily to mind.  I believe there is a sinister agenda here and they see their goal within grasp and will do anything, and I do mean anything, to achieve their evil ends.

    Wow.  This is going to be interesting to see how broad the net is for “mental” issues.  When I lived in Utah (18 months ago), 90% of my co-workers were on some medication for depression or stress (worked at a large law firm) so is prozac and the like going to come under this “mental health” umbrella?  Now everyone who has shared with their doctor that they are sad — maybe from a divorce or loss — and would like a referral to a therapist for short term assistance, are they going to be flagged and not allowed a gun in their home?  Wow.  This is a bad day for Americans.

    Glenn nailed  this part. There’s more here to be addressed. What America saw yesterday was the first step by Obama to hand over gun control to the United Nations, through its trumped up Arms Trade Treaty (ATT), which is supported by the entire Obama gang–all of them.

    Absolutely correct Sharmane.  When his orders mentioned ATF and DOJ I spewed my coffee.  The biggest gun runners in the US are going to do background checks, inform the government who they are where they live to know where all the guns to confiscate are.  Hell the ATF and DOJ ARE THE GUN RUNNERS.  These people sicken me including their head honcho.

This is the opening salvo of Obama’s purge of our free society, and the begining of a new socialist, totalitarian police state. I’m always looking over my shoulder, and I trust no one. Now I can’t even trust my doctor? “This is it boys, this is ***!”

  • Anonymous

     I actually see this as the leading step to the Stalin, Mao and Pol Pot “re-education” centers. The next step is to classify anyone having a firearm or wanting to posses a firearm as “mentally predisposed to violence” and thus “probable cause” to “visit the homes” with a warrant to inspect to see if there are any firearms or other implements of destruction under the guise to “protect yourself from yourself” and the others in your family, community or of any political persuasion you have a visceral disagreement with. This is the camel’s nose in the tent through the guise of “health care”, the same health care Pelosi said, “We’ll just pass it and you’ll have to read it after it is passed to see what is inside”… “We will sneak it over the back fence, if we can’t do that we’ll parachute it in.” The ground work for these 23 executive “orders” was laid in the HObama Healthcare Act.

  • http://twitter.com/rapchef2 Renea Pomeroy

    I agree about the Hipaa, Glenn.  So because mild post-partum depression was on my chart 15 years ago, should that mean I can’t have a gun to protect myself?  My problem wasn’t that I wanted to murder my child, but that I had severe anxiety about going anywhere because we could be in an accident, that someone would steal him, that I wasn’t going to be a good enough mother, etc. So what if I had a child now and had the same problem?  But now, I would be afraid to talk to my doctor, because he would report me as depressed, they wouldn’t allow me to have a gun, and it’s the protection of my child that’s causing me anxiety.  Now where is that going to leave me?  With tremendous anxiety and no one to talk to about it.  What if I had a child with Asperger’s? (which statistically speaking, autistic people have almost the exact tendency towards violence as the general population, with the exception that their “violence” is much more likely to be property related rather than directed at people)  So he grows up to be a perfectly functioning adult with the aptitude of genuis.  He gets married to a nice girl, has children and is now 35 years old.  Can he have a gun to protect his family?  Or will the government label him too violent to have a gun due to his diagnosis (without considering that the violent crimes committed lately by supposed autistic/asperger’s people were all people on psychotropic drugs.  Most asperger’s people aren’t taking drugs).  This is a very slippery and dangerous slope.

    While I am not a gun ” nut”, I object to the slow, unrelenting erosion of my rights as a citizen of the U.S.A.  I have a .22 rifle, with a 9 shot clip ( banned as a ” assault” rifle in N.Y. State ) and a BB gun with a 50 round capacity ( God, I am a threat to society!). Please tell me how this new legislation will possibly solve ANYTHING!  Bad people will still be able to obtain illegal weapons, kill others by the dozens, and take their own lives, just as they do now. The only difference is that, if the government wants to dissolve my other rights,  I will not be able to say “NO”.

     Priceless. It would probably be cheaper and better for the country if we insisted that Obama spend the next 4 years golfing. Send him and his family where ever they want to go. spare no expense. Lets just spoil the hell out of him and the girls. As long as he stays out of Washington. I’m not worried a bit about his gun grabbing. this has all been for nothing. Only a simple probing of our rectums.

    There were no executive orders issued yesterday, –just executive actions:http://www.whitehouse.gov/briefing-room/presidential-actions “…Technically, as New York magazine noted Wednesday afternoon, Obama’s measures were “executive actions,” including three “presidential memoranda” and a lot of smaller, non-controversial items – or items that would be non-controversial in a different world, like “Launch a national dialogue led by Secretaries Sebelius and Duncan on mental health” or “Nominate an ATF director.” The shorthand distinction is that executive orders carry the force of law and “actions” don’t.

    This will go much deeper. Even if the Executive Orders go no where, even if the Congress doesn’t pass any gun control legislation over the next four years, Obamacare has set the stage for elimination of gun ownership to those who are taking or have ever taken “psychiatric” drugs. This will include all the ADHD medications that children have been on for the past 3 decades. This will include all of our veterans who are being treated for PTSD. 

    Gun ownership is under attack through every back door there is. Do not underestimate those who would take your rights away. Explore every angle. Do the research.

    Another thing that I caught right away is the Bureaucrats are in control to interpret as they please and  write the rules as they go. 

    Another thing I said on Tuesday after the New York situation..Its A testing ground.. they are testing the waters to see what the reaction is. That helped set the stage for Wednesday where “The One” made this all seem very trivial and made the gun rights people look paranoid and It worked for him.. to a point.
    Also, I can’t believe our newest presidential advisers are now elementary children that have no idea of the kind of world we and they live in.

    #6 would violate personal information, as it is required to have certain information to access the background check system NICS.

    Why does a FFL need to do a background on a private seller?
    We do Backgrounds for a unlicensed buyer.
    If this order is meant that the FFL will do the paperwork between private sales, this is a waste of effort, as we do this already…
    If it meant that we do a background check on someone to tell a private seller he can sell to another unlicensed individual, that I would say is an attempt to gain information about who sales to who, as the only way to get the background verdict from NICS, you need certain information, like a Name, Social security number, place of birth, and date of birth, if they are Hispanic or not, and their ethnicity….
     I dont want to be collecting information for the government more than I do as a FFL.

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

    I agree with this, but the direction this administration is taking will be more harmful to society.

    Let the citizens arm themselves, you can carry a personal defense weapon, but you cant carry a peace officer.
    Another note, The right to bear arms, shall not be infringed, meant that the US government cant make laws restricting the ownership, sale and use of firearms withing the US boarders.

    Impeachment should have occurred when Obama put Muslim Brotherhood in power and brokered an agreement with them in week 1 of the so-called egyptian revolution, according to NY Times.

    Remember, Republicans also agreed with what Obama was doing with Egypt.

    #14 cracks me up.  Is the CDC going to declare gun violence a disease?  Is it contagious?  Is it genetic??  Seriously… this is ridiculous!  They should spend their time trying to prevent outbreaks and superbugs, not stating the obvious….

    I suspect that once they figure out how to check medical history along with the criminal history everyone that takes an anti-depressant or has ANY mental health history will not be buying any guns. I believe also, that eliminates half the population. Most of the wackjobs  involved in this violent behavior have never been treated. Usually because the parents are to ignorant or they are concerned about their own appearance having a child that has serious issues needing attention.

    Impeachment should have happened sooner. Obamao admits to ordering drone strikes on people who held US citizenship. He never gave them a chance at due process.

    making information available to the background check system. (Cut down
    barriers and remove legal loopholes that would keep the Federal government from
    having access to information of who owns weapons)

    3. Improve incentives for states to share information with the background check
    system. (Buy state support to give information freely to the federal
    government)

    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.  (Telling the AG’s that they
    need to remove as many guns from people as possible, even in gray area’s where
    they can own weapons legally now)

    5. Propose rulemaking to give law enforcement the ability to run a full
    background check on an individual before returning a seized gun. (Create a
    way that local LEO can hold weapons from individuals ‘while completing a
    background check, indefinitely)

    6. Publish a letter from ATF to federally licensed gun dealers providing
    guidance on how to run background checks for private sellers. (More federal
    control, on who gun dealers can sell to)

    7. Launch a national safe and responsible gun ownership campaign. (Create a
    program that indoctrinates people that they do not need to have personal
    protection or even need to worry about the government abusing its people given
    power)

    8. Review safety standards for gun locks and gun safes (Consumer Product Safety
    Commission). (Make secured weapons almost impossible to gain access to when
    only seconds count, that way they can tell us that, “see?  He had a weapon but was unable to use it, no
    need to have a weapon in your house”)

    9. Issue a Presidential Memorandum to require federal law enforcement to trace
    guns recovered in criminal investigations. 
    (Remove state sovereignty and give it to the feds for further
    control)

    10. Release a DOJ report analyzing information on lost and stolen guns and make
    it widely available to law enforcement.  (ok,
    I got nothing on this one, seems good to me)

    11. Nominate an ATF director.  (Hey!  He created a job!)

    12.  Provide law enforcement, first responders,
    and school officials with proper training for active shooter situations. (Not
    a bad idea, just afraid of what they will say about legal gun owners and how
    they will be portrayed to newer recruits)

    13. Maximize enforcement efforts to prevent gun violence and prosecute gun
    crime.  (Seems that these are already
    in effect, but once again, if a man is a criminal he will not follow ‘the
    rules’.)

    14. Issue a Presidential Memorandum directing the Centers for Disease Control
    to research the causes and prevention of gun violence.  (uhm, this one is easy, Prozac,
    anti-depressant depressants. Medications that affect peoples mentality create
    anger etc… but another job ‘created or saved’.)

    15. Direct the Attorney General to issue a report on the availability and most
    effective use of new gun safety technologies and challenge the private sector
    to develop innovative technologies. 
    (Seemingly good idea, having a database of new training techniques, once
    again refer to item 12.  Afraid of what
    they will train these folks about legal gun owners)

    16. Clarify that the Affordable Care Act does not prohibit doctors asking their
    patients about guns in their homes.  (Excuse
    me?  If my doctor wants to prescribe a
    medication that is known to create anger issues or depression, then I have no
    problem with the doc asking this question, what I do have a problem with is
    giving that information to some guy in the governmental Affordable Care Act.)

    17. Release a letter to health care providers clarifying that no federal law
    prohibits them from reporting threats of violence to law enforcement
    authorities. (I am for keeping the LEO people safe if there is an implied
    threat, so have the doctors inform the local sheriff office.  This will tell doctors that they do not have
    to follow HIPA rules and that the federal government can and will take care of
    you by making those ‘hard’ decisions for them.) 

    18. Provide incentives for schools to hire school resource officers.  (Train teachers that want to carry a
    firearm and hire officers, from retired military or LEO personnel, to protect
    the students)

    19. Develop model emergency response plans for schools, houses of worship and
    institutions of higher education.  (Already have the capability in the current
    FEMA program)

    20. Release a letter to state health officials clarifying the scope of mental
    health services that Medicaid plans must cover. (What does this
    specifically have to do with weapon ownership? More federal government control)

    21. Finalize regulations clarifying essential health benefits and parity
    requirements within ACA exchanges. (More regulations for what is already in
    place, create more federal government control)

    22. Commit to finalizing mental health parity regulations. (More
    regulations for rules already in place, create more federal government control)

    23. Launch a national dialogue led by Secretaries Sebelius and Duncan on mental
    health.  (Government officials will
    be our saviors, listen to your government, they know what is best for all.  More government control)

    First, Obummer put out Obamacare, Now he is aiming for gun control, more like confiscation attempt coming pretty soon. Notice how much emphasis is used giving doctors authority to ask personal questions that have NOTHING to do with health. Doctors who won’t provide names will be dibarred from obama’s payroll. Always consider the worst case scenario when something is brewing, especially from people like obama and progressives.

     You are absolutely spot on.  The definition of “mentally unstable” will end up removing anyone they want.  The criteria of being mentally healthly to “have a gun” will be so narrow, they will under the guise of control TAKE AWAY the guns.

     They have set back mental health care back years and years.  Perhaps they will bring back lobotomies too.  He  did NOTHING to help those with a mental health issue continue to get help.  He just found a way to use it against everyone.  I thought he was suppose to the compassionate one? (What was I thinking). 
    And then to have my doctor being required to report Dr / Patient information is an invasion of my privacy.  Where is the ACLU on this one…mine and every other citizens civil liberties are being trampled on.
    I cannot believe the stupidity and naivete of those that are ok with these 23 orders that were just made.What rock have they crawled out from?  Did they not study or even “listen in class” about history?  You don’t even have to be a history buff to see it repeating itself with just another bad actor at the helm.

  • Joe Schmoe

    I think this is actually worse…. You see, the president directed the AG to define the categories of individuals who are not permitted to have firearms – obviously this will include criminals and those with mental disorders, but at some point it will be extended to children as a means to identify individuals that may have a proclivity to commit crime, or are otherwise more likely to commit acts of violence based on DNA (remember, they took Mr. Lanza’s DNA for special analysis… looking for the “violent” gene – perhaps a gene that we all have)  At some point each and every one of us will fall within a category at some point in our life that will cause us to be denied the right to use of arms. In some respects this sounds reasonable – but the truth is, there is far too much risk for abuse. Doctors can (and will) place you in a category(s) that will ultimately prevent you from owning a firearm, because the risk to life and health is too great – not only for you the individual (to own or possess) but to those that are around you or in close proximity. Your freedoms are yours so long as they don’t infringe upon the rights of others – and guns will be seen as a threat to individual rights – of life.

    I cant speak for every one (or maybe I can….), but if some one from my family were ever gunned down “by an AR… as if it has suddenly become an animated free thinking thing….”, I wouldn’t blame the government…. unless of course that same government deliberately put the family member at risk by denying them the right to defend themselves using any and all means necessary to eliminate that threat.  And even then…. I wouldn’t blame the government…. I would blame the individual that committed the act.

    He is just toying with us now trying to get us off the incredible debt he has racked up.  With the executive orders, it is his way to see if we are paying attention and just see if he can get away with getting them passed.  If he does, then he is on to bigger things.  Like a Communist-Marxist country.  We would have no guns or anyway of protecting ourselves.  Then he could impose marshall law if he wanted and there would be nothing we could do about it.  I agree it is time he goes and all the communist staff with him.   It’s time to get our Bible and gun carrying Christian country back.   I am proud that I am a Texan born and raised here.  We need to stand strong against Washington and what it stands for – nothing.

    I agree we need to stand together and fight this by impeaching him or vote them out  till next election. They stole the election and I am sure they will do it again.

    I would venture to say that when the DOJ find out who the Americans are who have high powered guns then they will come after them and seize them.  Watch out….I don’t trust anyone in Washington and even beginning not to trust the Republicans.  We need to get in touch with our Senators and Congressmen and women and let them know there is an election in one year and they can most certainly be replaced if they get some backbone.

    Treason is,but that won’t happen. They don’t have enough votes in congess. They couldn’t impeach Clinton with his oral sex in the Oval office and all his ponorgaphic acts as President–What a man? Hillary would never divorce him ’cause she is the type that will make him pay and pay until he dies. I wonder if he and Hillary ever got checked for aids, His daughter must be proud of her Daddy. What is sex? I think he made the cover of Time for that remark. Maybe Obama could help him get a Noble Peace prize for being such a great liar. Yep! He plays the sax, sucks cigars from assistants that used them to masterbate in the oval office and had more affairs than any basket ball player. I wonder if their isn’t a liitle Clinton running around  someplace. I guess you really can’t blame him–Hillary is no Phyllis Diller or is she really a man in drag. You know Clinton loves gays. Besides Hillary is the one with the balls.
    Impeach Obama? For what –being a Muslim, a liar,no birth cerificate,destroying America, He’s just a beer drinking buddy from Keyna,  a black man or a half white man and is spending trillions of dollars on golfing,vactions, trips overseas, parties at the White house, kickback for his backers, and having a good time. For a community organizer and as a Senator that was always absent–he has done really for himself. You can’t say affirmative action doesn’t work.

    I believe this Glenn mention some time ago this what Russia did combine government with medical treatment they put many innocent people insane asylum or retraining camps  this is a very dangerous combination to our citizens and their rights,Why to silence them because they’re were not in lockstep with government policy of the present administration  !! Plus our President laying the first groundwork  steps to set a precedent !!   Now you already have our President  &,left wing media and obama zombies minions already falsely painting Tea Party are a violent group and  are terrorists ,and republicans are enemy of our country !!!  Now what you think a doctor will do after studying 8 years to lose his license to practice if he don’t obey obama dictates or find people of certain groups dangerous to the public which obama already label then inform police to seize their guns or ban from owning a gun ,maybe patients will go the back of list and kept them their  to denied them needed treatment ,maybe sent them to retraining camps or the insane asylum ??? We should be aware of doctors who start  up conversations  to find out private information to be use against you when not breaking the law or anything illegal just exercising your constitution rights. They will try to find out your member of the Tea party,NRA etc,Republican ,not in lockstep with obama policy  etc per obama these groups are all are enemy of country and have violent tendency !!!!  All this is for obama to use a sly  backdoor method using your doctor to get strong indications of how you voted with your secret ballot at election then punish you using government medical program,have police to harassing investigations until they can find some little thing and make it into a mountain !!  P.S don’t talk to doctor on anything but your health and inform your children to do the same !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I believe obama will stoop to this low level to have complete control over our citizens and no one will dare to speak out !!!!!

    Lee Severson                  culfdn the wake of all the gun violence,everyone wants to do SOMETHING. I  have the solution!! Make a law that states”Every Gun or Firearm” sold must have a trigger lock.I know there should b Made of metal that cannot be easily defeated”. Now, by easily defeated I mean picked, drilled, or hack-sawed off, like Tempered steel. Not only will this give thieves second thoughts about stealing it. It will also prevent many,Many “ACCIDENTS” and other shootings.Whether or not you choose to keep the gun lock on or not that’s your choice, But at least you’ll be able to make that choice by having a gun lock. Now days we lock up just about everything of value. Our houses ,cars, even bicycles. Shouldn’t we at least lock our guns. Thanks for your service to our country and the community.

    so basically the idea of the orders to to make it possible to do research and actually enforce laws already on the books…i get the sense we’re just looking for reasons to be pissed about this.

  • Anonymous

    My thoughts on the POTUS’s recent steps for gun control,..

    1. “Issue a Presidential Memorandum to require federal agencies to make relevant data available to the federal background check system.”

    *Ok, on face value, i don’t see anything wrong with this,but it begs the question”Why wasn’t this data available to start with?’….

    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.

    * Once again, on face value, i don’t see anything here “evil intent”,but another question,”Will this info be provided ONLY to the FBI for sole purpose of criminal/mental health background check? Will it be accessible to any other agency and used for other purposes(insurance company,employers, nosey neighbors?…),which in my mind is an invasion of privacy,”or 

    worse..

    3. Improve incentives for states to share information with the background check system.

    * Please see EO #1 , same response…….

    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.

    *Ok, this is just such a broad statement, several different horrors come to mind! “Categories of people”!!!!!! What? 

    Did we turn the clocks back 5 decades or more? Blacks can’t have guns? Baptists? republicans? What does this even mean? Are 

    known terrorists buying guns legally where a background check would save us? …… Going to have to consult someone 

    smarter than I to understand this one…..

    5. Propose rule making to give law enforcement the ability to run a full background check on an individual before returning a seized gun.

    *Once again,WTF? Law enforcement can’t run a background check? Well who the fuck does?Starbucks?……And if the gun was “seized”, apparently a crime was committed, so WHY THE FUCK ARE YOU GIVING IT BACK TO A CRIMINAL?…….

    6. Publish a letter from ATF to federally licensed gun dealers providing guidance on how to run background checks for private sellers.

    *I have no problem with this as long as it is done honestly,A standard reasonable fee to cover the FFL’s time ,and as quickly as the instant check system is now(or as quickly as it may be with the new resources….),To date, gun dealers have charged an average of 25 dollars for a transfer,any severe up-pricing would be just denying the average person their rights,while the politicians,movie stars, and the rich are the only ones that can defend themselves,..Oh, wait, many cities/states do that already,right Chicago? I sure am impressed how well it works there…. 

    7. Launch a national safe and responsible gun ownership campaign.

    *Nobody can deny the NRA has some of the very best safety campaigns ever,if this is an honest effort,they will reach out to the NRA on this.

    8. Review safety standards for gun locks and gun safes (Consumer Product Safety Commission).

    *This is just lip service to the uninformed. Locks and safes , like every other product, come in different price/qualities. it is up to the individual to determine how much protection they may need or want from children,thieves,crazies getting to thier guns.Or are we going to mandate that too?….

    9. Issue a Presidential Memorandum to require federal law enforcement to trace guns recovered in criminal investigations.

    *WTF? Do you really think we are this stupid? YOU ALREADY DO!!!! We the public know each of the mass shootings gun history from any news channel in a hour!We know what dealer it was bought from. What range they used, and how often they went there! We even fucking know they purchased”1000 rounds over the internet!!!”….

    10. Release a DOJ report analyzing information on lost and stolen guns and make it widely available to law enforcement.
    *A report? Sorry, just sounds like government waste and fraud to me. Hey, maybe it will make the “scoccer moms” happy, that should be worth how many million?…..

    11. Nominate an ATF director.
    *Mr. Obama,weren’t you supposed to already have done that?……

    12. Provide law enforcement, first responders, and school officials with proper training for active shooter situations.
    *No brainer, but a question,. Will local government be able to decide their own needed/level of protection? Will schools be able to have armed personnel if they choose? (ok, that was two questions….)

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

    *DUH! Why just gun violence? Are we going to continue to let asshats out of jail after they murder their grandmothers with a hammer,just so they then can kill their sister,set the house on fire, and THEN shoot first responders like the pos in NY just last month?……….

    14. Issue a Presidential Memorandum directing the Centers for Disease Control to research the causes and prevention of gun violence.
    *Does the CDC deal in mental disease/crime? No, really. I thought they only dealt with germs and such. Are they the best choice for this?…Do they cover side effects of prescription meds that might be a answer?…

    15. Direct the Attorney General to issue a report on the availability and most effective use of new gun safety technologies and challenge the private sector to develop innovative technologies.

    *”innovative technologies.” Cool new toys? Ok by me…….

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

    *”does not prohibit doctors asking”. If a doctor feels a need to ask a mental patient, or perhaps a patient they have to prescribe a drug that may impair judgement, I have no problem with this, if it mandated doctors to ask without just cause would be a violation of several rights.

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

    *Isn’t that already legal?

    18. Provide incentives for schools to hire school resource officers.

    *Armed resource officers? More info please……

    19. Develop model emergency response plans for schools, houses of worship and institutions of higher education.

    * Please see response from 12……..

    20. Release a letter to state health officials clarifying the scope of mental health services that Medicaid plans must cover.

    *Medicaid doesn’t know what they fucking cover?!?! And Obama care is going to be better than the insurance i have 

    now?!?! God help us………

    21. Finalize regulations clarifying essential health benefits and parity requirements within ACA exchanges.

    *Like the budget?…..

    22. Commit to finalizing mental health parity regulations.

    * please see response to #21

    23. Launch a national dialogue led by Secretaries Sebelius and Duncan on mental health.

    *Who are Secretaries Sebelius and Duncan ? ……….

    We all must look at the possible future connection of the dots with obama executive actions orders on guns where it will take our nation with a political police state with your medical program as a added control over you !!!!!! Now he forcing your primary & shrink doctors to become deputy arm of law enforcement ,but they would not have to I.D themselves as part of obama police state law enforcement  or inform you of your rights when speaking or having friendly conversation with them !!! Now for next possible future connecting dot very conveniently  for obama coming out today on fox news Friday Jan 18,2013 the reuse of brain scans to detect slight depression or mental illness etc !!! Now the government with their deputy doctors and this new tool will go on a fishing expeditions with no cause ,mandate this practice to our service men before they retire to take a brain scan before release to set precedent ,next targeted groups as possible threats to the public will be register gun owners, and prone to violence groups like the Tea Party,Republicans,NRA and anyone not in lockstep with obama !!   Now with this tool obama deputy doctors will make you guilty of crime that you will never do ,or illegal act on diagnoses of their preposition of you doing violent act in the future !!,When you long time ago work yourself out the slight depression long time ago completely ,this doctor could force you take mind control drugs or be lock up if not, once on drug you never have the right to own a firearm forever these drugs really make you unstable for ever ,or scare you not to belong to any group obama targeted as being violent or enemy of U.S will targeted you by force to get a brain scan !!   So obama deputy doctor with this tool can exaggerate the mental problem on obama target groups  and no one is perfect,you have no recourse !!!  Some day in future obama might with his executive actions as a medical prevention procedure  will mandate all citizens get a brain scan to prevent shootings so he have more control over you  if have different opinion or belong to certain group that oppose to him politically !!   Just a disguise fishing expeditions using his deputy doctors for more control over our law abiding citizens who are not lockstep with obama policy or else government will come down you in many ways !!  I believe Glenn was right in a past program that if our government proceeds the way it’s going citizens will be found guilty of crimes or illegal actions that they will never commit on preposition to crime or violence per Voodoo doctors as ( President Bush call them) and you be punish for it ,ban on owning a firearm, label outcast,mental, in getting a good jobs and your friends,always be under government threats up lockup,maybe under check in or probation with doctors for the rest of your life ???

     I do not believe this is right ,ya they should report if  a person is unfit to own or have access to gun or should not be allow drive to the police ,it’s up to police to check if they have registry to gun or driving or suspend their driving license !!! Not to have a deputy doctor ask questions and interrogate as part of law enforcement and don’t have to I.D themselves as such and perform fishing expeditions on law abiding citizens with updating medical records with questions on owning guns and their relatives ,who are mentally fit and no threat to no one !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I’m against voting for every Democrat  local,state,fed I’m not for obama police state using  false medical classification of people just because they don’t consider him the savior or not in lock step with his policy  !!!!  If so in love with obama agenda to turn our country into a police state ,Why don’t you move to Russia or Cuba where the police state already in place and their government use medical treatment to control anyone with different opinion !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I’m not debating whether it is ‘right’ or ‘wrong,’ (I think the professional decision should be left to the health provider and if they feel the gun or individual is a threat to public safety, that is their professional call to make), but the fact IS that the executive order issued by Obama does not change the law, as set forth by the Supreme Court. This procedure has been in place for 37 years, so it’s not a “police state” movement or “progressive time bomb”. Honestly, if you even read the summary of the executive order yourself it uses the word “CLARIFY.” Use some judgement.

    Not sure what I said that indicates ignorance. The state and federal government already have and exercise the power to regulate gun ownership. They determine mandates for waiting periods, permissible magazine sizes, the rights of the individual to conceal and carry weapons on their person etc. Those very provisions are private citizens are generally barred from owning fully automatic weapons.

    Setting laws to help keep guns out of the hands of dangerous individuals is not an infringement on 2nd Amendment rights – it’s just good policy.

    That said, I don’t think there is any merit in a number of the proposals currently up for offer. Limiting magazine size is silly unless you also regulate the number of magazines an individual can own. Regulating ownership of “Assault Rifles” is silly because they are used in only a small minority of homicides.

    All that said, I think it makes sense to empower enforcement agencies such as the ATF to actually do the enforcement work they are tasked with. It also makes sense to empower doctors and mental health professionals to advise law enforcement when someone is a risk for harming others. It makes sense to keep up with who owns guns through a national registry so that law enforcement knows where to look when they are advised of a credible threat. Every state requires registration and licensing for motor vehicles and I don’t hear [too many] people screaming that the practice is an infringement of their rights. Why would it be so absurd to require the same measures for guns?

    I’m a gun owner. I support individual gun ownership. I’m also willing to register that gun and identify myself to law enforcement because I haven’t any intent of using my guns in a dangerous or irresponsible way.

    To say that we can do nothing without trampling the Constitutional rights of citizens is foolish and defeatist.

    I don’t think we have the power to impeach Obama any longer.  The Constitution is just something he is wiping his feet on and Congress is wringing their hands or cheering him on.  I think they are all  compromised by their own comfort and  fingers in the pie. Can we expect them to fire themselves? They cannot even pass a budget. The States and individuals are going to have to take on the new gun laws. The right to bear arms was to protect individuals and states from an malignant and overbearing federal government as much as it was to allow us to protect our families from criminals. Hurray for Missouri.

    I was expecting some real Stalin like executive orders from this clown. We got Jimmy Carter. Don’t get me wrong. I expect congress to do there job and nullify 24 of the 24 orders, and I let my congressmen and senators know that. But my point is and I hope you can see this too, is that Obama was probing us. And he stuck his face in a beehive and knows it. We got “Obama gun control lite”. That doesn’t mean we sit back. On the contrary we must attack fiercely now. And tell our elected officials to do so too. Believe it or not Obama is on the ropes. And I haven’t heard one pundit say as such. Now is the time to kick his ass. Tell your congressman.

  • greywolfrs

    Nothing I said was foolish and ignorant. The ONLY way to stop it completely is to ban guns altogether. In a society that allows private gun ownership, taking ALL guns is the only way. There is nothing defeatist about that statement. The problem is the Second Amendment.

    No “Assault Rifle” has been used in any of these. People can not own an “Assault Rifle,” without first going through a full finger print, FBI investigation and purchasing a “collector’s permit.” The permit most people can not afford.

    Stop acting as if you are trying to have an “honest” conversation about this, when you don’t even know what an “Assault Rifle” is.

    As the United States Defense Department’s Defense Intelligence Agency book Small Arms Identification and Operation Guide explains, “assault rifles” are “short, compact, selective-fire weapons that fire a cartridge intermediate in power between submachine gun and rifle cartridges.”[21] In other words, assault rifles are battlefield rifles which can fire automatically.[22]

    Weapons capable of fully automatic fire, including assault rifles, have been regulated heavily in the United States since the National Firearms Act of 1934.[23] Taking possession of such weapons requires paying a $200 federal transfer tax and submitting to an FBI background check, including ten-print fingerprints.[24]

    Many civilians have purchased semiautomatic-only rifles that look like military assault rifles. These civilian rifles are, unlike actual assault rifles, incapable of automatic fire.

    A few things that people like you seem to miss.
    Doctors should be cops now? That violates a person’s right to privacy and also violates the oath doctors take. Besides, I doubt anyone intending to do something is going to tell their doctor, they may be crazy but they are not stupid.

    Regulating how many Mags a person can own? That sounds like freedom and the very intent of the Constitution, NOT.

    We already have a national register to purchase a gun. We already have a basic background check to purchase a gun. None of that is anything new.

    Last but not least, how many of these things happen with guns that the person owns? Most of these things happen with stolen weapons, not legally registered ones. The guy at Sandy Hook did it with his mother’s weapons, which he STOLE.

    In the end, you people who want to act on emotion, rather than logically thinking about this whole thing make me sick. Your knee jerk reaction is not solving the problem. I find it funny that people like you actually think Obamao and Democraps care about those kids. They do not give two shits about those kids. They care about their agenda and getting dolts like you to go along with it. Sorry, but the government nor you have the right to limit the Second Amendment with your “feel good” legislation. Read the Second Amendment some time, “SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED.”

    Stay stupid though.

    Some people argue for years now our medical doctors may have ask  questions you about your ownership of guns or your relatives or just strike up a conversation about guns but their status at that time was just a medical doctor !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Now with obama care and the President executive actions with new rules,laws,regulations how to practice, President dictates,directives, threats of penalties or lose the right to practice medicine doctor will be force to become a deputy of federal law enforcement !! Now your primary doctor status completely change from just being a doctor to a federal law enforcement doctor that greatly change the situation when you have a conversation with him or answer his questions !!!   Example you have a construction flag person to (direct traffic)   Next year,he become a cop now at construction site detail he really (still does direct traffic as a traffic cop ) but he still a policeman also !!!  Now what obama has done with his executive actions have made doctor into federal law enforcement deputy doctor  in fact your doctor will be a uncover cop who will not have to  I.D himself self as a law enforcement person or to have to inform you of  your rights when you have conversation or answers his questions !!!  Now under the President or his czars directives or dictates etc will force these uncover law enforcement doctor deputy to go on fishing expeditions on law abiding citizens ,legal gun owners,people belong to the violent Tea Party etc. To start up conversation or ask questions (example you own a gun or,relatives with  guns or belong to violent group like the Tea Party etc which obama falsely label)  So to entrap you & unsuspecting citizens  even they are doing nothing illegal ,but to punish them for their second amendment right to own a gun and defend themselves and their family and to belong to certain groups or have different opinions than the sitting president not in lockstep,or to gain indications how voted with your secret ballot during election by invading your privacy  !!! Now we all know all of us have some imperfections and humans are not perfect ,but under obama government threats this undercover  deputy law enforcement doctor will key in on a imperfection especially people in one of obama falsely targeted groups doctor will be force to exaggerator this imperfection to declare you unfit to have a gun and put on obama black his list to misuse his government powers to harass and punish you for not being in lockstep with his policy and owning a gun ,or member of certain group. Plus you won’t have a right to a second doctor medical opinion who independent from obama dictates and have no legal recourse !!! All obama is doing here is a sneaky way to take away your right to own a gun plus to punish law abiding citizens who just have a different opinions by invasion of privacy with misuse of government power per obama !!!!!!!!!!!!  We all can thank obama for destroying doctor & patient relation and medicare care system !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Using the Assault Rifle definition you’ve chosen is useless. It’s not the definition that was used for the previous Federal Assault Weapons ban, and isn’t the definition used by the absurd and overly restrictive new Assault Weapon ban recently adopted by New York state. In any case, I thought I was clear in saying that there was no good reason to ban Assault Rifles (however defined) or to limit magazine size. I was simply stating that it might help if everyone were required to register all firearms and various state and local agencies were sufficiently empowered to take guns away from dangerous individuals. This is to say that something needs to be done about private gun sales and the “gun show loophole”. Many states have absolutely no requirement that a gun owner MUST register their firearm. Private sellers have no obligation to check on who they are selling guns to. That’s a problem that can be fixed.

    Mental healthcare professionals and doctors already can report credible threats of harm against self or others. The administration is just moving to clarify that engaging in that reporting doesn’t constitute a violation of HIPPA. I don’t know what the point of funding the CDC studies regarding guns is. What are they going to find…? Guns can be lethal? So yeah, it’s a silly “feel-good” measure. Your assertion that people who want to hurt others won’t say anything to a doctor or therapist is flat out wrong. I worked in mental healthcare for some time. Dangerous/disturbed people are pretty willing to tell you all about the crazy stuff they’d like to do. It was always good to know that the law was on my side if I needed to report those threats to law enforcement.

    Yes. Sandy Hook was perpetrated using stolen guns, but wouldn’t it have been reasonable for the mother to have BEEN REQUIRED to either remove the guns from her home, or AT LEAST better secure them when they are being stored in a home with someone who’s mentally unstable? The Colorado theater shooting was perpetrated with legally purchased weapons. Wouldn’t it have been nice if his therapist had called law enforcement and said… “Uh… yeah. This guy’s bat-crap crazy and shouldn’t be allowed to have anything more dangerous than a spork.”?
    I don’t understand why this has to be an all-or-nothing proposition. I absolutely don’t support taking peoples guns away. I don’t support limiting magazine sizes or the amount of ammo that people can have. I do support moving the ball in the right direction to keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people. Mandatory registry for all weapons (previously purchased included), close the private sale loopholes, empower law enforcement to actually enforce existing laws. That won’t prevent every tragedy, but it might prevent some. What’s wrong with that?

    Within those 23 executive orders THERE IS indeed real Stalin like orders— according to Glenn when he broke down their effect. By uisng Obama care,the Health Insurance Portabiliyt Act, Doctors and your medical information Obama will establish access to all your private HIPPA medical info and if you have ever in your lifetime taken anxiety meds or had a diagnosis related to any type of depression they will use that to establish a reason why you can’t own a gun. Eventhough you are no longer in need of such meds or are now medically ok. Returning vets who may be have been diagnosed with PTSD,but are now well will be denied gun ownwership.Obama  will establish a national gun registry on all guns.By using the Consumer Product Safety Comission and the Center for Disease Control he will side step congress and use those agencies and others to establish reasons why gun control is necessary and put policies in place to implement  gun control without any input by congress.The effect is very subtle and as Glenn said lays the foundation for future  gun control policies. In addition, if you are counting on congress”our elected officals” to do anythting you must know something no one else knows. “Attack fircerly, kick his ass” by what? Telling your elected officals to do something? That is like a one legged man in an ass kicking contest.! Tell my congressman what? I don’t want Obama for President. Please do away with his executive orders? They can’t affect his executive orders. That’s why they are called Executive Orders. Remember “Fast and Furious” when he issued an executive order about the info conserning his attorney general. He basicly told congress (the Republican committe investigating) ” to go piss up a rope”‘ ’cause he wasn’t giving them anything. And they didn’t get any info! I don’t know about you ,but when ever I have to go get my annual prostrate exam and the doctor probes my rectum— it is no fun getting probed. I feel the same way about getting probed by Obama.I agree with you about Jimmy Carter –he was an asshole,but just the same a dangerous asshole.Our elected officals haven’t done anything to stop Obama yet and they won’t. The majority of them are more worried about getting reelected and saving their jobs than saving the country. Sure they may be a few left that care,but they are ineffectual and their vote doesn’t matter anyway.Congress(the few Republicans in the House) the Senate is owned by Obama —-can’t stop him. If Obama is on the ropes he must be like Mohammed Ali and using Rope A Dope ’cause he looks like he is doing fine. Apparently eventhough you don’t— the rest of the country is taking him seroiusly. Across this country the sale of AR’s has gone crazy.If you can find one to buy or order one–most stores are sold out, Maufactures have a year back order waiting period.Ammo is sold out on line or in stores. High capacity magazines of any kind: AR, AK, semi auto anything are sold out and most stores or on line sites won’t back order because they don’t know what the price will be in the future. A high capacity magazine that sold for $9.95, $10.99 or $15.95 just a few weeks ago is now $31.95. and higher.
     Between Finestein, Biden,several congressman, some religious people(notice I didn’t say Christian pastors or preachers instead of religious because true Christians read the Bible and know the TRUTH about what the Bible says concerning weapons— self defense and protecting your home) and unfortunatley some liberal Chiefs Of Police, liberal mayors and liberal left wing elected officals–all of these combined are pushing Obama to create gun control measures that will remove guns from society ,from private owners and put them ONLY in the hands of the military and police–like the rest of the socialists countries,commuist countries or dictatorships in the world. If you think this was “lite” please give us an example of what you consider “heavy” and how he will achieve it. Good luck with trusting Congress to protect your rights under the constitution. Lock and Load people! Keep your power dry. Remember sight picture, trigger control and center mass. Get ready! It’s coming to a neighboor hood near you!

    We are not even close to shots fired in anger. these 23 orders were a joke. even though their illegal. In my opinion this was obama’s plan b. No it’s not great. great would have been no EOs. but we all knew something was coming. I think that Obama and Beohner both saw the reaction of america and Obama throttled it back a lot. To me this is a good sign. it doesn’t mean kick back by any means. It means turn up the heat. I was just over at Cabellas and the shelves are being stripped daily. This is a good thing. it means people who previously were unarmed, are now armed. it is also a sort of public opinion poll. I think that things are gonna turn around, and if they don’t, well I’m still prepaired. we still have a lot of tools at our disposal. Like governors and county sheriffs. please look up countysheriffproject.org. I don’t know what you think we should do at this point but pressure the haouse and senate. but I’m with you on this; Obama sucks and he always has.

    Mayors Against Guns – Asinine Hypocrites
     
    Mayor Nutter of Philadelphia, Emanuel of Chicago and other mayors across the country are calling for an end to any “financial investments” their cities might have in companies that produce “assault weapons”.
     
    An article in the September 2012 issue of Tactical Weapons discussed the firearms used by the dedicated officers of Philadelphia SWAT.  First on the list was the dreaded “Bushmaster” along with another “assault rifle” manufactured by Sig Sauer.
     
    These firearms are actual “assault rifles” capable of full-automatic fire.  Are the mayors of these cities going to insist that their SWAT units not have access to these rifles”?  I don’t think so!
     
    How then are these cities going to have “no financial investments” with companies that manufacture “assault rifles” if they are spending the dollars of their own tax-payers to acquire actual assault rifles for their police departments?
     
    Having a brother-in-law, now deceased from natural causes, that worked in law enforcement most of his life has given me more than a normal appreciation for the work our police officers do and the danger they face every day.  Our police officers and SWAT teams SHOULD be armed appropriately and be given every advantage over the criminals they face.
     
    Ordinary citizens should not be denied that same advantage when defending themselves and their loved ones.

    Mm. Throughout your whole tirade, one thing really stuck out to me: “But that won’t happen.” And you’re right! We Liberals have Congress in our pockets save for a handful of staunch, right-wing “patriots” that refuse to bow to our whims. Also, Mr. Beck and his counterparts are “roughly” accurate in their portrayal of future events. We figured that a majority of these Executive Orders were digestable enough that you’d be lulled into a false sense of security, but to have you in an outraged fervor? It’s -delightful-. I was speaking with someone from the Accounts Payable department at the firm the other day and they remarked: “Can you believe that we actually got that kind of candidate in office TWICE?!” I’m still in awe that we managed to get him in. I mean, a guy who not only LIVES our destructive, Progressive agenda, but who also gets you Conservatives foaming at the mouth? Life couldn’t be more grand for a Liberal such as myself at the moment! I can’t wait to see the looks on your faces when we come for your guns though! I’m bringing a camera on that day for SURE. :D

    Actually, Obama has not issued that many. And your figures for his predecessor were off as well. You were right in one regard though! He is going to fundamentally destroy America and I’m rooting for him. We Liberals have waited SO long for the time when the Conservatives no longer had the ability to stymie what we were doing; it’s nice to finally be able to stretch my legs and admit to what we’re doing and planning. :) Seriously? That whole cloak of secrecy thing has been frustrating.

    Unfortunately, Critten, I would like to advise you that you are almost incorrect. D: As one Liberal to another, please allow me to put you in the know. Climate Change IS real, yes, and we Liberals actually control it. We were planning on eventually using it to create a catastrophe, but it appears as if it won’t be necessary; not yet. The rape thing is accurate, so…Good job! Evolution does happen, yes! And Benghazi was planned to draw out some of our Conservative enemies! We ARE planning on relieving people of their guns; it’s necessary if we want to establish our one-world government. The war in Iraq was something our boys came up with to stir up younger voters like we did with Vietnam. The moon landing was, regrettably, not real. We filmed it at the most advanced film studio that we had access to though! We needed to inspire and distract. FEMA is authorized to open camps AFTER the gun-grab, but no sooner! :D And UN election observers are already taking over states; they have been for YEARS. As to your last points, we are planning on making the one-world government a communist government AND the plan is to let them try to impeach, but watch as that falls apart and our puppet president comes out looking even stronger! :D Consider yourselves Illuminated! ;D

    REPLYING TO SPARBUCKS. I beleieve you are truly concerned,but still don’t get it. I went to that website for the Sheriffs. They can’t do anything. You can’t see the forest for the trees. You are putting all your trust in the congress, the courts and the sheriff’s. Obama doesn’t play by the rules–he makes them up as he goes along. He has no intention in complying with the constitution. The Federal courts the ,Circuit courts will side with him and any lower courts that don’t will be over turned. He is not in the least concerned with what the American people think. He could care less. With his re election he believes that he has a mandate from a majority of the people to carry out his socialist plans.He is not in the least afraid of those in the minority that lost. In part, he may be testing the waters to see what some Democrats in congress say about his plans,but he knows even those Democrats from states that are hunting states and have a large NRA MEMBERSHIP will follow the party line and vote with him. If they want to be re elected.It is hope less to trust congress the courts or the public at large. A majority of Americans got the President they wanted. Look at a recent You Tube article— injustice.com about the Criminal Justice Dept and the Criminal Iinvestigator arm of the IRS. Obama is an expert at smoke and mirrors and slight of hand–while he has your attention on the thing he wants to draw your attention to ’cause he knows exacly how you will react—- while all the time working behind the scenes to accomplish what he really wants using behind the door techniques. He knew exactly what he was doing issuing the 24 executive orders.He wasn’t backing down or off of anythting.And he certailny isn’t joking about what he wants to accomplish.
     What should we do? March on Washington 2 million 3 million strong. We neeed more public demonstrations in cities, in front of city hall in support of the 2nd amendment. Demand air time on Public Broard cast  TV in support of the constitution. More billboards, more handouts/flyers/ signs at churches, malls, social functions–where ever— supporting the 2nd amendment and denoucing Obama gun control . Get the youth involved handing out flyers. Church groups, Cub Scouts, NRA memebers. The eldery groups, Veterans groups, hunting Clubs, Law Enforcement groups ,etc. Let the people know the truth about the stats for gun violence not what Biden says is the truth. The rally technique worked for the Tea Party because they became vocal and visible— not silent. Ask people for donations in their community to support the Constitution. Hold  free community education seminars in Public Libraries, community halls,etc about guns ,violence, and the truth about the plans Obama has for gun control. THAT IS A START.

    Very good question ask Obama!  Just guessing,but I would think probably because he was so concerned with passing Obama care,helping the Muslims,incresing the deficit,  trying to figure out what to do with the war on terrorists,freeing the illegal aliens, the trillions of dollars in debt to China, giving away all the money to chevy and the rest,plus getting re elected–he was also working behing the scenes with the UN on Treaties to make America a global community like Europe. Besides all the Czars, and  using all the Federal  Agencies to implement his Socialist plans. He may have been occupied with  other items of paramount concern to him at the time.  That is besides golfing, parties, and traveling the world.

    Please explain in your opinion why we are better off under Obama. In your own words not what someone has told you,but what you believe and why. Thanks Oh!. Also if you don’t mind , what is your education level, how much do you make a year after taxes, how old are you, are you married or single, what part of the country do you live in -the reason I ask is because you sound so profound in your responses. You must have at least an eighth grade education,and probably with your government support make at least $20,000.00  a year and pay no taxes. You must be at last 19 yrs old single, and from New York ,Chicago, La , DC or one of those high crime areas that have really good gun control laws.Thank you so much for all your wisdom.

    If he enters my home illegally and tries to take my gun illegally. Self defense is a wonderful thing! Oh! or anyone else who believes in removing the 2nd amendment and acting in an unconstitutional manner.

    King George of England felt the same way about the colonies. How did that work out for him? Oh! it didn’t work last time here ’cause the Confederacy lost. The second time is always a charm.

    No problem! Please, please come in person and please bring your camera. I don’t have any pictures of a liberal mounted on my wall –not yet any way! If not —–I’m sure you and Jimmy Hoffa will have alot in common.I always enoy a good joke and you’re laughable. I haven’t met a liberl yet who isn’t a coward and picks on old people,cripples and children. You are all mouth. If you don’t show up–I’ll know why!

    I love you’re vocabulary. Ass and dumb— were you looking in a mirror at the time or just repeating something you’re mama used to say when she called you to clean your diaper. Please— from your extensive knoweldge of World History give us an example when US citizens were fighting for the Nazis. Please explain in your own words,in the English language,  not what someone told you or what you over heard from some skin head when a soldier shot a US citizen fighting for the Nazis. Thanks I’m sure we all be grateful for your enlightment.

    The senate has the authority to veto any Executive Order within 90 days of being signed. With the power struggle and current majority in that house of Congress I doubt if we, the country, shall see that happening any time soon with this president in office.

    Actually, the third time is a charm. Also! While it would be awfully fortuitous for me to be the one assigned to take your guns specifically, I doubt that’s how it will happen. I -think- that we were mulling over our options and we’ve decided to use airplane contrails as a humane means to knock everyone unconscious. We’re Liberals, remember? One of the goals is to avoid needless bloodshed. :)

    In reply to Natural loser. I was right you’re all mouth and no balls, can’t stand up like a man and do your own work. Just like a liberal. And apparently you have never flown a jet–contrails? Needless bloodshed ? Yea as long as it’s not yours. You don’t mind spilling innocent unborn babies blood or soldiers blood to protect your useless life form.The only thing you’re good for is cannon foder and target practice. YOU might need 3 tries to get it right, like getting your food stamps,but the next time there is a civil war—it will be indeed the last time and it will be done right. Fortuitous –isn’t that a big word for such a pea size brain like yours. Please define it for me ’cause your use of the word in the context in which you used it is not what you think it is. Liberals make that mistake often —using words that they don’t know what it means. Boy!  as a liberal amongest other weak kneed liberals you must be on the bottom of the totem pole. Of course,like the rest of your kind ( cowards, and spoon fed zoombies) you can only parrot what someone else has implanted in your tiny little brain. I tell you what. since YOU won’t  come to me to get my gun–give me your address and I’ll come to you and I’ll give you what comes out the end of the barrel.
