    Obamas Address

    Why did obama just list off about half a dozen executive plans he had, and then sign in 23 executive orders that DO NOT need congressional approval???

    Did anyone else just catch that????????

    Yes, but there's nothing that substantial at first glance. The real damage will come in the bill they propose.

    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

    Oh ok thanks. These all seem reasonable, except for how eerily vague some of it is. And slipping in numbers 11 and 16 is a little scary. But otherwise it all SOUNDS logical on its surface.....Almost like america is growng some of that ol fashioned canadian logic

    $500 million in funding is attached to these. #6 is foreshadowing.

    You figure? It sounds like a way to check if people are selling stolen guns? Where do you see it leading?

    Preparing dealers for running background checks on all private sales of firearms, which is one of the requests for Congress to pass.

    ^So that's just if you sell to a dealer though, right? I get more money with private sales?

    No, the proposal he put forth is to require background checks on all firearm sales. So I imagine this is to lay the framework for having dealers involved.
