Gun Control Executive Actions

The speech Obama just made was horrible. Nothing but appealing to emotion. Not surprising I guess.

Here is a list of the proposed actions

Here is a White House-provided fact sheet listing his "executive actions."
Gun Violence Reduction Executive Actions
Today, the President is announcing that he and the Administration will:
Issue a Presidential Memorandum to require federal agencies to make relevant data available to the federal background check system.

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

I have a question.

How does any of this stop Adam Lanza from murdering his own mother to gain access to her firearms?

Wasn't it in the USSR that if anyone disagreed with the

regime, they were deemed mentally ill and sent off to "mental hospitals".

I suppose expanding the definition of mental illness to include all freedom lovers would work for them.

Just stay away from doctors or any kind. If you must go because you can't deal with it yourself, don't talk about anything but the specific malady you are suffering. Lie if they ask you about gun ownership or anything else unrelated to your current medical problem. Don't even think about talking anything political?

"Bend over and grab your ankles" should be etched in stone at the entrance to every government building and every government office.

Why do you think I'm upset with the "NRA"

for offering up that talking point. I knew when the government and other groups call for anything like that, it is always used for oppression.

Now supposedly, based on "emalvini's thread, Obama is asking doctors to rat you out if you seem "troubled".

Feds get a notice from the doctor.
Feds investigate you.
Deem you unstable.
Take your 2nd Amendment rights away.

You'd think after seeing how this government works for decades, people would lay down their own mental sickness called "normalcy bias" and really wake the fuck up for once.

WARNING! Patient confidentiality has just gone away.

"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."

That "unnecessary legal barrier" is YOUR doctor - patient confidentiality.

I have not gone to a doctor in years, hope I never have to go again. If I do, I will take cash and ask them to keep all my information off the computer and if they won't, I will lie through my teeth about who I am.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

Hey, watch out, it might now be considered Obstruction of Justice to lie to doctors.

Write them a letter, they'll listen to you.

I'm sure he'll reverse this whole mess if we just send him some flowers and a support card.

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

So, police seize guns when they think you are a "threat to public safety" then hold it for an indefinite amount of time so they can "run background checks", in the meantime sending you to counciling to determine your "mental fitness", then prescribing you drugs. Since you have been prescribed meds, your background check isn't clean and they keep the guns.

Nice.

You left out the part where the mental health professional

tells you to take a drug, you say "No thanks, I don't feel I need it." The next day he tells you to take a drug and you say "No thanks, I don't want it." The next day he tells you to take a drug and you realize he will never let you out until you take a drug, THEN you take a drug and lose all right to protect yourself ever again.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

All these actions

Are backdoor methods to shut down the Gun shops and retailers from selling firearms and ammunition. So much red tape, fees, time, and liability will make most if not all of these gun businesses just throw up their hands and say "forget it". At best, it will drive the overhead cost to own and shoot a firearm so high that only the rich and connected will be able to own firearms, making the rest of ordinary citizens become unarmed like serfs were in the feudal (Futile?) age where Knights could only possess arms.

It will create a boom in the "illegal" gun trade. This tactic never works. Didn't work for alcohol or drugs.

Can't wait for all the Republicans and Boehner to get behind the president on this, minus a handful.

Mental Health labelling is the bottom Line.

An excuse to get rid of dissenters by labeling them as mentally ill. This more than gun control is the hidden agenda. Such a round about way of controlling the people. Used in every fascist regime.

"Commit to finalizing mental health parity regulations.
Launch a national dialogue led by Secretaries Sebelius and Duncan on mental health."

This talk about shooters being mentally ill means that anyone can be declared mentally ill, picked up without a warrant, held indefinitely, killed. All of this is by Obama executive order. So any one that speaks against the government can be labelled mentally ill, and disappear from life.

"This kind of control over citizens by government was practiced by Mao in China, Communist Russia and Nazi-controlled Germany. As following in the footsteps of previous dictators, Obama is proving himself to be the next in a dangerous line of Fascist controllers who will imprison his own military if need be to accomplish his goals set forth for him by the global Elite."

Ever been depressed? Ever

Ever been depressed? Ever taken xanax? Oh too bad you can't protect yourself anymore.

Ever taken SSRIs?

Black Ops has a whole cache of weapons for you...
To focus on "mental illness" and ignore the SSRI connection has got pharma laughing all the way to the bank.

Im actually surprised at how

Im actually surprised at how ambiguous some of this is. He didn't just come out and say he's gonna take our guns. However incrementalism is a tried a true tactic of the government. I think he's trying to soften up congress a bit, once he gets an inch he'll take a mile.

Look for CONgress to roll over just like they did on taxes

when our economy is headed down the drain.
