Heres Whats in Obama’s 23 Executive Actions on Guns

Along with calling for an “Assault Weapons” ban and a ban on magazines with a capacity greater than 10 rounds… here are the 23 things he is specifically mandating:

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.

  1. 4. Right-wingers and tea party members to be labeled as extremists. Prohibited class too dangerous to own firearms.
    5. You know the 6 months it takes to get approval for an NFA firearm? We’re going to make that the norm for all firearm purchases, but because we’re greatly adding to the number of checks, it will take much longer.
    6. ??? What does an FFL have to do with private sellers? Closing the non-existant “gun show loophole?”
    12. Duck and cover.
    14. There are always guns present at the scenes of gun crimes. You should ban guns.
    15. “Smart guns,” “ballistic fingerprinting,” “serialized ammo” and ammo registration.
    16. Setting the stage for increased health care rates for gun owners.
    18. WTF is a “school resource officer?”
    19. Duck and cover.

    Gun crime rates and violent crime rates are at an all time low, and gun ownership is at an all time high. We must do something to reverse these trends.

    • The things that bother me most are the appointment (read political appointment) of an ATF head. Gee, I wonder if Obama will find the most anti-gun person on the planet to appoint to that position? You thought the ATF was bad now… wait until it is 100% political.

      Second, the fact that the CDC is going to be telling us “what causes gun crime”. Guns are now a health issue, so look for more of the same as far as “we must ban guns to save x-number of lives”, but with the legislation to back it up.

      The bureaucracy of firearms ownership just grew by 1,000 percent.

    • Just a side note that I find particularly funny after the flack the NRA took for suggesting armed Police in schools. A School Resource Officer, or SRO is a Policeman that is assigned to the school. What I find funny is the program was started under Clinton. When it was proposed by the NRA, it was stupid. Now BHO is claiming it as his own since he thought about it.

    So basically they have laid out 23 building blocks (foundation) for completely getting rid of actual 2nd Amendment but on the surface it will look like Americans still have the right to bare arms. The begining of an end of the 2nd amendment – soon it will only be present on record not in reality. These are the 23 steps to future civil war of America – Thanks Mr. Mohamad Barack Hussein Osama.
