Watch Obama's Gun-Control Decree - Live Webcast

Tyler Durden's picture

It would appear, given the equity market reactions, that investors are not expecting a dramatic impact to the gun-makers as Sturm, Ruger, Smith & Wesson, and even Cabela's are all rising ahead of the Biden-Obama Gun-Control Decree. Perhaps, this is front-running of what is likely to be record-breaking gun sales in the next 48 hours if past history is anything to go by. From the NRA's view of Obama as an "elitist hypocrite", Republican calls for his impeachment, and many US citizens against gun control (even though emotions are raw - 51% of men polled want to protect the right to own guns), it would appear that the populist might be struggling, especially as Politico notes that there are strong indications that any comprehensive legislation restricting weapons and/or ammunition won't even see a vote on the House floor.

This is long overdue. I'm ashamed to admit that America's gun legislation is far behind the rest of the developed world. It's embarrassing that we have thousands of deaths every year caused by firearms in this country, and yet right-wingers religiously support lax gun regulations. The rest of the works looks upon America's gun loving culture with horror. How many more people need to die before the right supports a ban on dangerous assault weapons?

I thought he said "23 executive actions."  Can't wait to see what's in those. . .

SheepDog-One's picture

Probably 15,000 pages of red tape and hidden nightmares at least.

SilverRhino's picture

List of the 23 Executive Orders is as follows:   

 

 

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.

 

 

Number 1: just freed up ALL federal agencies (including the IRS) to share data for the NICS check system currently in place. 

Number 2: just trashed HIPAA's privacy guarantees for your health information when it relates to a gun. So now, any time a doctor asks "Do you have guns" or even asks family memebers ... all that information can be collated into the NICS system as well. 

Number 4: Allows the Attorney General to add entire classes of people to the no guns categories in a form 4473. If you make it to the "No Fly" list for the TSA ... kiss your ability to purchase a weapon goodbye. 

Number 5: Allows for LE officers to perform theft under color of law by requiring background checks before handing your property back to you.

We as a nation can not stop mass casualty incidents. The discussion has lost all direction, and the proposals put forth by the Biden Task Force failed to come up with meaningful legislation that would limit the damage done during the Sandy Hook incident. The first line of defense in school is the teacher/staff. Current active shooter drills focus on law enforcement for stopping the shooter and ensures that during a lockdown teachers lock the door then hide with the children. This ensures that the teachers become victims rather than giving them the means to be the first line of defense.

I would support federal legislation that would reimburse schools for the cost of handheld Stun Batons, Mace, and even taser guns for each teacher and the proper training to handle these non lethal devices. With teachers stationed near the room entrance during lockdowns the use of these non lethal devices would enable the teacher the chance to disarm the assailant and give the police and/or school resource officer the precious moments needed to respond. By making the teachers active participants during these incidents and training them during the active shooter drills we can limit the potential harm done.

Most incidents at schools are not mass casualty but angy students with a grudge. These non lethal devices in numerous capable hands can and will limit the overall potential damage done by a student with a pistol or knife.

This legislation would include funding from the federal government to reimburse schools to ensure that at least one full time Resource Officer is on hand in each school who is trained to detect and subdue imminent threats to the children and staff.

Giving teachers loaded firearms is not the answer as many teachers will not accept them. Banning Assault weapons is not the answer as only 3% of gun homicides are committed by rifles. Banning magazines is not the answer. Spending billions to turn schools into 24 hour locked down prisons is not the answer.

Enabling and ensuring that our educators and school officials, have the skills, training, and knowledge to protect themselves and those around them is the answer.

Obama and with his brilliant plan to "ban" the AR-15 (and other "assaulty" weapons), because he's a pragmatist, and really wants to do something to reduce gun violence by psychopathic killers:

 

"...of 12,664 murder victims last year, [just] 323 were killed with rifles, according to the F.B.I.’s Uniform Crime Report."

That's correct. 97.5 out of 100 homicide victims last year were killed with handguns, knives, glass bottles, hammers, baseball bats, fists, etc., and not rifles of any kind, let alone "evil, black, assault-y" semiautomatic ones.

I'm quite confident that nearly all the homicides that were perpetrated this weekend in Chicago, land of some of the most restrictive firearm ownership laws -- yet land of an abnormally high homicide rate-- were done so using "low capacity" handguns and revolvers (not to be banned, Mr. President?).

While the anti-RTKBA agenda crowd will renew their dogmatic, irrational push to try and legislate away the right to purchase magazines holding more than 10 cartridges of ammunition, they will never want an honest debate on the efficacy of such a piece of legislation.

i find it strange that the teleprompter didn't tell obama to talk about the obvious connection between SSRI's and other drugs and mass killings....

@ TruthInSunshine,

Facts?  What facts?  Facts mess with the CRIMINALS False Narratives and PsyOps/PscheWarfare.

Citxmech's picture

I really want to hear the rational why any gun is somehow more deadly because it's equipped with a pistol grip, folding stock, or flash suppressor.

DosZap's picture

 more than 10 cartridges of ammunition

Problem with the 10 rounds, IF semi Auto's are banned, WHAT other weapons(handgun can use 10rds?)

NADA................

Absolutely correct.

As someone else mentioned, Kimber is based in The People's Republik of New York State, and they mainly produce 1911 .45ACPs, so it will be good for MIMber, since a 1911 has a 7 round magazine as an inherit part of its design.

"DISARMAMENT IS A PRELUDE TO GENOCIDE!"

Anyone who has studied history knows this, because it's obvious. Which means, those who we know HAVE studied history and want disarmament anyway are not merely foolish, and they are certainly not well-intentioned; they are evil, and they mean us harm. Isn't THAT obvious by now?

I'd advise the brave man to stay off tall buildings and avoid bathtubs for a while.

And in case you didn't notice; yes, there's more holes in that story (pun intended) than a swiss cheese (and they still have their guns)
on top of that Jennifer Greenberg-Sexton (of that famous actor family) made another cameo appearance.

but hey, the american people, especially the "Obamabots" are too stupid to deficate so... no one will give a shit.

Wanna save kids?  ARM adults in the school, otherwise STFD STFU and FOAD!!!

NotApplicable's picture

In other words, he's an invaluable tool.

BTW, your rant is fine until ask about saving kids. You seem to be forgetting that he personally condemns them to death.

In the minds of megalomaniacs known as "leaders," human lives are but means to political (read: EVIL) ends.

But then again, he's not the first, nor the last, but merely evil's current facade of compassion.
