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.

Did this unconstitutional "executive order" include gun shows yet? Will you need a background check to buy ammo too? How about spending the 20 million on schools & info structure instead?

There are very few real Americans left, lots of US citizens yes, but damn few American Citizens.
While a few may question Obama's legality to hold office due to birth, I do not.
It is illegal to talk of removal, so you must kiss his ass!
My language becomes cruder by the day as I find not one single Political issue or political personality that literally is worth the powder to blow them to hell nor do I find any respect of those who continue to play the "Proper Language Forms in the Proper Games"; games they continually lose.
They properly pucker up within a system of abuses that they voluntarily remain within , hoping their sweet lips will save them.
I Find no person of popular fame in any form of popular media even worthy of listening too other than with questioning ear.
While their are a lot of "Information "Specialist" telling us how each day we get more screwed by those other Information Specialist, almost all are not real activist for anything other than their paychecks.
It is the american way and why today the U S ecist

All this is from his executive actions he signed back in January. He hasn't done anything recently. Last news was the assault weapon ban was dropped from the frankenstien bill, but the rest of the bill is still going to try and get pushed through. it can still mess shit up though.

So the government is trying to protect our children. It's so very sweet of them.

But what are they planning to do with their 2,000,000,000 newly-purchased bullets? That's 6 bullets for each US citizen. How would you like yours?

The well-regulated Militia of the 2nd Amendment is explained in Article 1, Section 8, Clause 15 and 15 as citizens called up (drafted) to put down invasions and rebellions: the Militia is organized, ARMED, and controlled by the governnent under the Congress; ultimately, the President as Commander in Chief is in charge. That's exactly what Clause 16 says.

So if the President find that public safety is endangered by inadequate gun laws, which allow criminals and the mentally twisted to buy not only guns but assault weapons, he has the obligation, in the absence of Congressional initiative, to do whatever is necessary to confront the problem, which is that each year, 32,000 Americans die from firearms and that massive loopholes in existing laws allow people to buy weapons of war without any background checks.

This article paints the most satanic vision of Obama's efforts to ACT now, in the urgency of the moment, when 3000 more have died by gun since the Newtown massacre, done by a young man with assault weapons and possessing an NRA certificate for taking a gun safety course.

The President, in the face of such an ongoing emergency, has a Constitutional obligation to take measures to increase public safety.

No rights are abolished by these actions; cameras in schools and enhanced background checks of school employees is hardly tyrannical.

The 2nd Amendment is based on the Militia, which is organized, armed, and controlled by the Congress with the President as boss.
He is acting because of the paralysis of Congress to save lives.

For that, tho I detest many of his policies in foreign affairs and his coziness with big business, I applaud him and would mock the author of the above paranoid reading of common sense measures.

Homeland Security, this Frankenstein that grew out of the 9/11 Hoax, has 130,000 employees and they are buying bullets for training for 5 years (they say). I do not worry about the bullets....I worry about the 8000 nukes we have, the trillion we spend on security/defense each year, and the power of the war hawks to start wars in the absence of any just cause, based on lies.

I worry about the 300 million private guns, including 4 million assault weapons,in the hands of anyone who wants them, without background checks or limits, thru loopholes and exceptions in the Brady Act. I worry about the 32,000 gun deaths a year, the fact that your chance of dying by gun (if you live to 80) is 1 in 136.

It's a gun mad culture, whether privately or with the governnent.
The people (4% of world pop) have 33% of the world's private guns
and the military has a budget 8 times larger than China, 15 times larger than Russia, 100 times larger than Iran.

Since the end of the war in Vietnam, over a million Americans have been killed by gun, 40 times more than died in that war, more than twice as many as the fascists killed in WWII, and since 9/11, 400,000 Americans have died by firearms, well over 100 times more than the hijackers killed in that Big Lie called 9/11.

Americans are insane and have an addictive connection to guns, weapons, and violence. That is the major driver of our lack of national security, which like an addict we think we can overcome with more weapons, more wars, more enemies.

It's insane.

Good luck grabbing guns...
300,000,000 guns say, FORGETA BOUT IT!

Let do some math...

2,000,000,000 bullets equals 6 bullets for each citizen. But, 300,000,000 guns times 50 rounds per gun equals 15,000,000,000 rounds.

That's 1500 rounds for each of the 1,000,000 law enforcement traitors that attempt to steal our guns! Seems like someone flunk math class on the opposing team....

I know what the FEMA camps are for, since the prisons will run out of space quickly when the Feds are arresting law-abiding citizens for having unregistered guns. Lead poisoning is going to become a huge problem in this country!

Hard working, law-abiding citizens only want to use their Constitutional it again...C-o-n-s-t-i-t-u-t-i-o-n-a-l protect themselves from the Government.

Allowing drones in American airspace had an agenda all along. The Feds are going to go in with Predator Drones first...then, any resistance in attempting to grab someone's guns, Hellfire missiles or 50 cal. will secure the scene. Don't believe it? Look at Pakistan. Drones can count the hairs on your balls!

This guy loves to write Executive Orders. Reminds me of a King or Dick_tator. He will be disbanding Congress soon. It's pretty pointless to have one if, the President doesn't use them (even if by LAW he's obligated to!) (If he taught Constitutional Law, those students got a raw deal and a lot of wrong information!)

To the Armed Forces and Veterans, your duty is to defend the American People and to protect your Country and support the Principles and Rights in the US Constitution! It's your responsibility to defend us, because we have paid dearly for the protection.

CONCIDERING OUR MILITARY EXPENDED OVER 200,000 rounds for every Iraq killed during first 3 weeks of invasion., maybe they should order more.
Unlike the people of Iraq that had no military forces fighting and civilians just waiting for US heros to arrive. We may have a few americans shooting back at DHS.

Over 500,000 people die each year due to some type of physician or prescription error; only 30,000 people die by gun shot. Where is the outrage over the medical statistics? Oh, wait, the US citizenry doesn't care about being shot up with tainted vaccines and flu shots, taking poison in a pill, and being treated for disease instead of wellness. Yet, the US citizenry will allow the people killing them to take away the last vestiges of protection against the perpetrators (our Government).

The total number of people killed each year is LESS than 1/100th of 1% of the ENTIRE population of the USA. This is not the number of an epidemic. What is really going on? Trying to disarm for what reason?

President Obama walks into a local bank in Chicago to cash a check. He is surrounded by Secret Service agents. As he approaches the cashier he says, "Good morning Ma'am, could you please cash this check for me?"

Cashier: "It would be my pleasure sir. Could you please show me your ID?"

"Truthfully, I did not bring my ID with me as I didn't think there was any need to. I am President Barack Obama, the President of the United States of AMERICA !!!!"

"Yes sir, I know who you are, but with all the regulations and monitoring of the banks because of 9/11, impostors, forgers, money laundering, and bad mortgage underwriting not to mention requirements of the Dodd/Frank legislation, etc., I must insist on seeing ID."

“Just ask anyone here at the bank who I am and they will tell you. Everybody knows who I am."

"I am sorry Mr. President but these are the bank rules and I must follow them."

"I am urging you, please, to cash this check. I need to buy a gift for Michelle for Valentine’s Day"

"Look Mr. President, here is an example of what we can do. One day, Tiger Woods came into one of our bank branches without ID. To prove he was Tiger Woods he pulled out his putter and made a beautiful shot across the bank into a coffee cup. With that shot we knew him to be Tiger Woods and cashed his check.”
“Another time, Andre Agassi came into the same place without ID. He pulled out his tennis racquet and made afabulous shot whereas the tennis ball landed in a coffee cup. With that shot we cashed his check.
So, Mr. President, what can you do to prove that it is you, and only you, as the President of the United States?"

Obama stands there thinking, and thinking, and finally says, "Honestly, my mind is a total blank...there is nothing that comes to my mind. I can't think of a single thing. I have absolutely no idea what to do and I don’t have a clue.”

"Will that be large or small bills, Mr. President?

Obama signed Adjustments of Certain Rates of Pay on Dec 27,
Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity on Feb 12,
Amendments on Mar 15,
Establishment of the Presidential Commission of Election Administration on Mar 28.
There has been no signings since.

He does not have the authority to pass any gun control bills. He can suggest rules and clarify and limited fortification of laws but that's about it. Example, he can direct the ATF to create a program for dealers so they will understand the rules.

You need to check your facts the militia is not controled by the govt.the national guard is they are two different things. The right of the people to keep and bare arms shall not be infringed.
