    Obama's Executive Action on Gun Control

    Man is it tedious to listen to guys. I'm just sitting here on the couch, and I ache all over. I think they told everyone to wear a dark blue suit. Is that supposed to have some psyco-social impact on the viewer?

    Theses are not exact wording but the general idea:

    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.

    Where did you find this? Where can we find the exact wording of the 23 executive orders?

    1-4 really bother me. They seem way to vague and leave the door open for misuse

    I'm just scanning that list, and I'll be honest, I've been up since 4 AM and am sleepy, but none of that sounds terribly, well... terrible. Of course, as I said, I skimmed. Will review later.

    I like #18. That's all I'm prepared to say about them.

    #7: The NRA has been doing that for years.

    #12: Every law enforcement agency I am familiar with already has this training, as do the first responders they work with. Schools already have useless active shooter policies that generally say "hide and hope for the best." What training is there to do? Best practices for hiding?

    HIPPA, G21.

    Health...IPPA.

    I like #17 (my problem with the same law in NY was that it only applied to guns, this says they want to apply to threats of violence, which fits my personal opinion that we should like at violence on the whole) and #19 (focuses on response planning for places where we'd want a response plan).

    I will not agree with most of these, seeing as how they run on the idea that background checks stop crime.

    #18 is amusing. I wonder if the antigun crowd is going to erupt in anger aftert they realize Obama wants to provide incentives for schools to have police officers in them.

    I was worried that he issue something about the importation of firearms or firearm parts (ala, keeping out oversees part kits, milsurp, etc), as that has been an issue before.

    I am worried about

    as this seems to me it will lead us to "biometric" weapons as well as that microstamping crap which does not work.

    I am also seriously concerned with

    as one of the reasons the debate is an emotion vs. facts debate is the research don by Dr. Lott. I know enough about statistics that the question is as important as the answer and I am seriously concerned with how, what, and to whom the questions will be asked by any CDC sponsored study. Bad questions result in bad data, and if we make policy based on bad data, we get bad policy. I acknowledge that the more quality data we have the better, but the CDC has never been politics free (nor have firearms), so I am apprehensive of the results.

    I wonder if #4 could be used to widen/add to the categories that prohibit an individual from purchasing a firearm?

    Most of these are just useless words that don't really help or hinder anything.

    However a few caught my eye.

    Sorry, EO's can't change existing law like that. If the ACA says doctor's can't, then doctor's can't.

    HIPAA is a sacred cow in the medical industry and shouldn't be messed with. It already provides for medical personnel to report valid threats to Law Enforcement. Anything beyond that could harm the ability of the medical community to diagnose and treat patients. Obama can order it if he wants, and it may even pass muster, but a great many medical professionals will ignore it on principle.
