Another poll, let's bury it folks.
------------------------------------------------------------
Fox News: Is it time to make constitutional changes to gun rights?

President Obama recently signed 23 executive orders the White House claims will reduce gun violence. Gun rights advocates claim the White House is trying to illegally skirt the constitution by issuing orders instead of turning to Congress.

Is it time to make constitutional changes to gun rights?
-Not sure. Our Constitution is not something to fiddle with lightly.
-Yes. The senseless killing of innocent Americans must end.
-No. It's not guns that are the problem.

It turns out that, despite all the fanfare and his own words when he said, "Let's get these orders signed," Obama didn't sign 23 executive orders. What he did sign was a wish list of 23 things he would like to see happen called "executive actions" - most of which have no legal weight whatsoever. On that list of executive actions he notes that he will issue 3 "presidential memoranda." Presidential memoranda are similar to EO's, but don't carry quite the same legal weight.

In other words, the "signing ceremony" was a lie - a psy op, if you will (Obama Did Not Sign 23 Executive Orders -- Daily Intelligencer (http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer/2013/01/obama-23-executive-orders-actions-gun-control.html)).

Here are the 23 executive actions he wants to pursue:

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.

So when it comes right down to it, as long as congress continues to deny funding for the biased "research" and other actions for which he calls on his list, there is nothing Obama can do to make any of them happen.

On a related note, a Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll shows that support for the NRA is increasing despite efforts by the White House to vilify them. The poll shows that 41% of people polled support the NRA, while 34% do not. However, the 34% of people who do not support them is an increase of 5 percentage points over the poll conducted in January of 2011.

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

Wonder what that would be like coming from Obama?

"Just get rid of all your guns, it's the 'safe and responsible' thing to do"
