Obama Signs Executive Order to Bolster Gun Registry

President Obama has not just been speaking in front of cameras with victims of gun violence staged behind him, he’s also been busy bypassing Congress by signing executive orders and other actions on gun control.

In January, Obama issued 23 executive gun control proposals that were mostly organizational and procedural in nature. But now he has officially signed his first definitive executive order to take gun control into his own hands, according to The Hill.

The Hill reports:

The president has used his executive powers to bolster the national background check system, jumpstart government research on the causes of gun violence and create a million-dollar ad campaign aimed at safe gun ownership. 

The executive steps will give federal law enforcement officials access to more data about guns and their owners, help keep guns out of the hands of criminals and the mentally ill, and lay the groundwork for future legislative efforts.

Obama’s Department of Justice says their aim is to strengthen the “quality and quantity of records contained within the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS).”

Last week the DOJ announced that it is pouring $20 million into beefing up the national gun registry.

“As part of President Obama’s comprehensive plan to reduce gun violence, the Administration is committed to enhancing and strengthening the national criminal record system in support of stronger firearm background checks,” said Attorney General Eric Holder. “The Department of Justice intends to take immediate and effective action to work with states to fill gaps in information currently available to the NICS system.”

The DOJ describes the new program as follows:

Funding will be provided under National Criminal History Improvement Program (NCHIP), NICS Act Record Improvement Program (NARIP), and a new, one-time initiative called, Improving the Completeness of Firearm Background Checks through Enhanced State Data Sharing. This new initiative creates a competitive grant program designed to incentivize states, territories and tribes to share information with NICS by closing information gaps that inhibit complete and accurate background checks.

Obama’s administrative action also included plans for more research into “trigger locks and firearm safe standards to determine if they need to be improved” – aka smart guns, and $1 million to promote gun control through a propaganda campaign.

The Hill writes:

Separately, the administration has given $1 million to the National Crime Prevention Council (NCPC) to create, produce and distribute a nationwide multimedia ad campaign on safe gun ownership and storage. The campaign is heading into the research phase and is expected to air by the early fall, according to a NCPC spokeswoman.

Isn’t this something the NRA does for free, funded by memberships? These multimedia ads will most likely be some ghastly “see something, say something” campaign to help viewers identify “irresponsible” gun owners.

Finally, this executive order will subsidize the surveillance-industrial complex through a “Cooperative Purchasing” program to provide schools with discounted rates for “surveillance cameras, emergency communication systems, security design and support, and employee background check systems.”

Federally-funded Big Brother surveillance for schools by executive order. It seems the gun control frenzy is bearing more tyrannical fruit than could have been dreamed up by Orwell himself.

In summary, Obama has signed an executive order to expand and improve the gun database with $20 million in funding, appropriated money for a anti-gun propaganda blitz, and wants all schools tracked, traced, and databased.

If the motivation for an executive order like this was anything but gun control, Americans would probably be mortified. But instead, the numbed masses will likely cheer that he is finally doing something to avenge senseless murder. Problem-Reaction-Solution accomplished.

    He has legislated by executive order, end around tactics, which don’t need Congressional action, yet makes it much easier to take the guns of law abiding citizens, based on some potential fear that they may later on commit some act of violence, and without any substantiated evidence. He has made it more difficult for law abiding citizens to obtain legally purchased firearms and ammunitions, as have several states (such as California). The general trend follows precisely the U.N. and Globalist / Elite agenda of complete disarmament, as has already occurred in numerous other countries (for the same reasons).

    Precisely. The militia is a militia of citizens. The military, including the National guard, is not the militia.

    Your comment reflects your intellect and that is the problem. Without intervention (by the Russians), Assad wouldn’t last long. The U.S. and Israel wants him out, and he will sooner or later wind up just like Gaddafi.
    The Syrian people are the victims of those very same sociopaths who have disarmed most other nations. They are international in scope, yet have the ability through bribery and corruption of politicians, to dictate legislation, domestic and foreign policy, and most importantly, Constitutional Rights. They have the ability to eviscerate your rights, with you having no recourse.
    That is the problem we face, and have faced for more than a century. I was going to simply call you stupid ignorant, but I won’t. What I will say though, is that no matter your political persuasion, ignorance of the facts, and of the political agendas of powerful financial interests, is what is allowing them to gradually facilitate their interests so they come to pass.

    What laws are we ignoring? – Off the cuff illogical, irrational, dysfunctional, laws that by all accounts only affect law abiding gun owners, and will do nothing to stop even one crime, but do everything to create and ensure more casualties? Oh you mean those new criminal by dictate tyrannical (stroke of a pen laws), which violate our Constitutional Rights and our liberty and freedom as American citizens?

  • jheckler

    I agree with many of your points, but totally disagree with your stance on guns. Law abiding citizen should, and do have the ability to own firearms for self defense and sport shooting or hunting or whatever reason they deem necessary.
    Furthermore of the 11,000 homicides by gun, in a given year, more than 60% of them are committed by gang bangers and drug dealers in inner city America. Most of them are committed by African Americans in these locals. Another 20% are homicides by cop, 96% of those, unjustified murders. Another almost 18% are common criminals and thugs, using guns in the commission of a crime. Leaving just over 2% of homicides, committed by otherwise, law abiding citizen gun owners.
    When you break it down even further, you realize -that-, is even a complete exaggeration or under-examination of the statistics. Why? Because 99.99% of Law Abiding gun owners don’t commit crime. They don’t want to lose their 2nd Amendment rights, and have no inclination to commit crime. The problem is not now, nor has ever been, -guns. The problem is the societal decay perpetrated and propagated by, certain individuals, which has permeated our nation over the last several decades to allow for the conditions where more Orwellian laws and dictates can be implemented.
    Almost nothing happens by accident. It is planned far in advance, and based on history (precedence, such as the false flag attacks you so aptly mentioned), and human psychology, to achieve a certain long-term outcome. The strategy is now, and has always been divide and conquer, using the “Problem – Reaction -Solution” psychological means they are using in Syria, Libya, and other nations in the middle east. They are also using it here, and in Europe.
    This is not about guns or reducing gun violence. We have 300 Million guns in this country. Whatever the actual number, -far too many to believe that we are going to effectively ban guns or can keep them out of the hands of criminals. As we have seen time and time again, you are best able to defend yourself, only when you are armed. The police will not and cannot defend you as we have seen time and time again. The Supreme Court ruled they have no obligation or responsibility to.
    In somewhere around 95% of the mass shootings since Columbine, they have all been in “Gun Free Zones”. This is by design. A mass murderer knows that his chances of perpetrating maximum death and casualties (and therefore making a name for himself), are best where the most gun-control exists; Further illustrating that gun control only affects law abiding citizens.

    You can’t expect that a law abiding citizen will bring their gun (if they are even allowed to carry concealed or open), into a “Gun Free Zone”. For the most part, this is Federal Law, and carries harsh penalties. Our government by and large has already illegally legislated the illegality of self defense and totally eviscerated the 2nd Amendment (what the Founding Fathers implemented based on experience, history, and knowledge). Our gun rights and right to self defense has already been removed. So what do you think the result will be? It certainly won’t be a mass shooting, or any shooting necessarily, where a law abiding gun owner was able to save themselves or others by using his gun. Do you expect corrupt beholden politicians to be rational, in their research or discourse on the subject?
    If that were the case, they would repeal and any all anti-gun legislation, and we would see crime drop by 50% in the first 10 years alone (assuming the economy was strong and there were no other negative outside influences), and by another 30% by the following decade. An armed society has always been a polite society. It wasn’t guns that changed that fact. It was societal and moral decay for financial gain/profit/covet means. Those very same individuals who sold out our nation (many of them anyway), are the very same ones behind the U.N./ Globalist/Communist/Fascist/Central Banker/Financial Elite agenda to disarm us all.
    90% or more of these so-called mass shooters who committed these mass shootings, were on Psych meds; with ZERO scientific evidence
    that they had a mental illness; that required use of those drugs; and with ZERO evidence that the drugs are effective in treating the existing or non-existing condition they were supposedly prescribed to treat; With extensive evidence however, that these medications: 1) Cause thoughts of feelings of violence, homicide or suicide. Such that they are some of the most prominent warnings on the label/foldout. 2) Can actually cause the psychosis or mental illness they were supposedly designed (and prescribed) to treat.
    This is a serious problem that is not being addressed and is in fact being stonewalled in the name of profit, bribery, and corruption. It is perhaps the biggest problem in existence after the poverty that creates violence and crime. No one is necessarily accurately diagnosed, and yet they are being prescribed dangerous mind altering, life altering drugs based solely on the opinion of one person. Their Constitutional rights are being removed based solely on the opinion of one person. Millions of Americans are being illegally and unconstitutionally disarmed (loosing their 2nd Amendment rights among others), based on lies, or a complete and total lack of evidence, or outright fabrications as happened to me.
    People had better wake up and start doing some research, such as the thousands of hours I have, or we are doomed. It will be too late for Liberty, Freedom, and human rights. It will be too late to save America and the world. We have gone into the middle east, and murdered millions of innocent people, based on the instructions of the very same people who are eviscerating all our Constitutional Rights (in our so-called government and the shadow government).
    We destroyed the Constitutional and Human rights of those innocent people in sovereign nations we had no business in, and yet we want to supposedly uphold our own rights and moral superiority? OR These very same bureaucrats and who they’re working for are perfectly happy to murder and destroy the lives of our brothers and sisters in other nations, so what makes you think they won’t and aren’t doing the same to us, in more subversive secret ways? Does it make sense that they love us? Our Federal Reserve System is a private banking cartel with the controlling shareholders in Europe/England specifically. The same is true of the Wall Street banks and largest commercial banks. So they caused this last $multi-trillion dollar Global Recession that began in 2007/2008, and yet our government bailed out these banks, instead of the millions of homeowners and citizens who lost their homes and jobs.
    Who is working for whom? There is a famous quote by Thomas Jefferson, where he stated he believed that private banks were more dangerous than standing armies. Google it. It is very telling.

    No offense, but you are mistaken and delusional. I don’t own a single gun, though I would like to be able to in the future, if I deem it necessary for whatever reason (sport shooting at the range included). Gun control laws have only made our nation far more dangerous. There are between 300 Million and 400 million guns in America. No gun control legislation, or even an outright ban on all guns, is going to make America “safer”.

    That being the case, your best defense and security, is a gun. Whether against a common criminal, or a not so-common criminal (a rogue police officer for instance).

    This is not about guns or reducing gun violence. We have 300 Million guns in this country. Whatever the actual number, -far too many to believe that we are going to effectively ban guns or can keep them out of the hands of criminals.

The problem is the societal decay perpetrated and propagated by, certain individuals, which has permeated our nation over the last several decades to allow for the conditions where more Orwellian laws and dictates can be implemented.

    Do not believe that someone who has researched extensively and understands the actual human history of false flag attacks, is wrong, or is a tinfoil hat wearing conspiracy theorist, when they say that these attacks, including mass shootings, have been the result of specific mind control operations, and people have been paid, to commit terrorist attacks in the United States (and elsewhere), in order to bring about the Problem-Reaction-Solution Orwellian psychology, to disarm law abiding citizens (as has already been done the world over), to remove their Constitutional Rights, and to create an Totalitarian/Authoritarian police state and control grid, which is decades along in it’s evolution.

    This is from a book written by Thomas Jefferson:

    “Laws that forbid the carrying of arms…disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed one.”

    This exactly holds true, and it is what we are seeing in America.
    When all gun-control legislation is repealed and only then, will we see vastly safer America where criminals are afraid to attack and do not know who to attack, because they don’t know who is or isn’t potentially armed. Criminals will commit their atrocities all day long against those people they know are disarmed, but they know their crimes are not worth dying for.

    Shaken, not stirred. Melted in my glass of water please so I die a slow and painful death. The problem is so many Americans (I estimate 95%) are either partially or totally ignorant. They seem to believe our economy is doing great, and we are not $20 Trillion in debt; and that the debt is meaningless and will have no future dire impact or consequences. They are totally blind to the greed and corruption that permeates the Western World.
