THE PRESIDENT SOLVES THE MASS SHOOTING PROBLEM!

At first there were only going to be 19 new gun ownership proposals.

In typical government fashion, the tangled bureaucratic mess has multiplied on its own.

His willing partners in the MainStream Media are fawning over President BO (the amateur president)'s new proposals. NBC calls them "sweeping."

A bunch of  "Who shot John," in the end (not a good place to be shot).

Here is a step-by step revelation about each part of President BO (the amateur preaident)'s gun control agenda, as provided him by the very astute Joe Biden.

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

This would have done nothing to have averted any of the mass shootings that have taken place in this country.

It is nothing more than telling the government to follow the law

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.

This would have done nothing to have averted any of the mass shootings that have taken place in this country.

It means regulators will have to back off from their mental health regulations which never should have been put in place to begin with.

3. 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.

This would have done nothing to have averted any of the mass shootings that have taken place in this country.

The feds keep issuing unfunded mandates that cost the states money. This says pay the states back.

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.

This would have done nothing to have averted any of the mass shootings that have taken place in this country.

It just says, "DOJ, don't let dangerous people slip 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.

This would have done nothing to have averted any of the mass shootings that have taken place in this country.

This established another unfunded mandate for the states (see #3 above)!

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

This would have done nothing to have averted any of the mass shootings that have taken place in this country.

Tell gun dealers how to run a background check - which they already know.

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

This would have done nothing to have averted any of the mass shootings that have taken place in this country.

Do what the NRA is already doing. Since it will be done by the feds, it will be less effective and will cost more.

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

This would have done nothing to have averted any of the mass shootings that have taken place in this country.

This is already the job of the Consumer Product Safety Commission!

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

This would have done nothing to have averted any of the mass shootings that have taken place in this country.

Guns used by criminals should be traced. To what, he did not say.

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

This would have done nothing to have averted any of the mass shootings that have taken place in this country.

This only tells the DOJ to do its job.

11. Nominate an ATF director.

This would have done nothing to have averted any of the mass shootings that have taken place in this country.

It only tells President BO (the amateur president) to do the job he's already supposed to be doing.

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

This would have done nothing to have averted any of the mass shootings that have taken place in this country.

It's just a ploy to get the feds to spend more taxpayer dollars.

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

This would have done nothing to have averted any of the mass shootings that have taken place in this country.

It only tells the states to tell their law enforcement agencies to do their jobs.

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

This would have done nothing to have averted any of the mass shootings that have taken place in this country.

Now DOCTORS are supposed to tell the feds why the feds have been ineffective at doing their jobs.

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.

This would have done nothing to have averted any of the mass shootings that have taken place in this country. 

A report! Now that would have stopped mass shootings, right? Obama wants "smart" guns.  They are not like phones, and don't exist. If they did exist, they wouldn't work.

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

This would have done nothing to have averted any of the mass shootings that have taken place in this country.

It only admits that the Affordable Care Act does not mean what it pretends to mean. In other words, "Tell doctors that it is okay to break the law even though we want them to follow the law that I pushed."

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

This would have done nothing to have averted any of the mass shootings that have taken place in this country.

A letter!  A letter!? In other words, tell doctors the Affordable Care Act doesn't mean what it says (see 16).

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

This one might actually be worth something...not much, since it is only incentives, but something.

Every time I or the NRA has suggested this we have been ridiculed, disrespected and called names. Now President Obama is admitting that we were right all along...which we already knew.

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

This would have done nothing to have averted any of the mass shootings that have taken place in this country.

The feds shouldn't spend any money on this one. Every First Response agency in the nation has already done it. With the feds doing it, it will only be half as effective and will cost ten times as much.

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

This would have done nothing to have averted any of the mass shootings that have taken place in this country.

Another letter!! Oh, goody! Tell doctors what they already know. Good way to spend tax dollars, no?

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

This would have done nothing to have averted any of the mass shootings that have taken place in this country.

Reveal what parts of ObamaCare don't say anything.

22. Commit to finalizing mental health parity regulations.

This would have done nothing to have averted any of the mass shootings that have taken place in this country.

More finalizing! This time asking Health and Human Services to do its job (isn't anybody in government doing their jobs already? NO?).

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

This would have done nothing to have averted any of the mass shootings that have taken place in this country.

It absolves President BO (the amateur president) of any responsibility for any of this.

So, do you feel swept?

Maybe "hoodwinked" would be a better term.

How did we get so lucky as to have this guy "leading" us?

Obama’s Gun Proposals. Ban, Ban, Ban!
The idea of punishing law abiding citizens because of the acts of a few criminals is pure insanity!

Thank you Comrade Obama for saving new generations from the American way of life. All this time I just thought you were a tax and spend socialist.

TQM: Interesting you should mention the KKK. The KKK was started by and largely populated by Democrats.

Look, Bean Brain, I marched with Dr. Marting Luther King, Jr. in St. Augustine, Fl. I spoke out for civil rights. I was acosted for having done so.

For you to come in here accusing me of being a racist is the hight of racism. You accuse me because of your inate hatred of white people.

That, sir, is racism. You are the racist.

Apologize by Noon today or be deleted.

(Are you trembling in your boots yet?)

MCT: Yep. We punish the good guys because of the bad guys.

We can't get them, so we get the ones we can reach.

Pitiful.

To liberals like TQM, anything said by a conservative is "racist."

All this list of executive orders does is make liberals feel good about "doing something," when nothing is really done except the wasting of more tax dollars.

Liberals are all about emotionalism over rationalism.

GEC: "...emotionalism over rationalism..."

That an apt description.
