Obama Announces 23 Executive Actions Against The 2nd Amendment

Obama Announces 23 Executive Actions Against The 2nd Amendment

UPDATE: List added below!

Today Barack Obama and Joe Biden chose to use an emotionally charged setting to announce plans for sweeping executive actions against the 2nd Amendment. The two surrounded themselves with children and planted families of victims in the audience of the press conference to make their announcement.

“The world has changed, and it’s demanding action”, said Joe Biden, before presenting Obama for the announcements on action. Obama then, oddly claimed there shouldn’t be division in wanting to protect our children. At this point we’re unaware of any organizations or blocks of Americans who do not wish to protect children, so the opening statement from Obama was a bit slanderous and based on assumption.

Clearly, emotion and subliminal assertions are at the base of this move by the White House. Protecting rights, which is at the core of Obama’s oath of office, took a back seat to emotion and subliminal assertions.

Obama then went in to his plan/proposed steps against the 2nd Amendment.

In summary (and we’ll very likely have much more news on this in the coming days, weeks and months):

  • Universal background checks
  • Restore ban on “assault” weapons and create 10 round limit on magazines
  • Doctor initiated questioning on gun ownership
  • CDC funding for gun violence research
  • Significant increase n funding to hire more law authority  ($4.5 BILLION into union friendly law enforcement environments)

At this point there is very little information available in regards to the 23 executive actions Obama signed as soon as the conference ended. Not much has been released as of the time of this post, and we’ll make it available as soon as we have it. We do know for certain, however, that 23 executive actions were signed by Obama immediately following the conference.

Speculation is high that Obama’s inner circle will now activate his campaign infrastructure “Organizing for America” to strong arm the House to enforce his actions against the 2nd Amendment. We’ll keep an eye on this as well.

UPDATE: The List

1. Issue a Presidential Memorandum to require federal agencies to make relevant data available to the federal 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.

6. Publish a letter from ATF to federally licensed gun dealers providing guidance on how to run background checks for private sellers.

    Obozo may not have done much today but just wait ’til he thinks he has the American people thinking he won’t do wrong by us and then he will make his big move. Just like the moves hitler did, he gained the trust of the German people then screwed them by taking away all of their rights. Sound familiar? It does to me. This is exactly what obozo is doing. Beware and be very scared, obozo thinks he is smarter than all of the American people so he will and has done things that the president isn’t supposed to do.

    Oh, please the insanity surrounds those two idiots. The 2 who have more guns protecting them constantly……the Village Idiot and the Insane Asylum Nut Job. Way to go America you got it wrong 2 elections in a row!!~~~~

      Sounds like they are going to be using obamacare and the doctors to try to get information about guns out of people. I don’t think most of them will like this, especially the doctors who mostly have guns themselves. Obamacare is the national nightmare getting worse.

      It isn’t just two idiots; it’s almost the entirety of the administration, save a few more rational types.

    Hahahahahaha….. whoop-dee-doo. None of these 23 ‘executive (dis)orders’ will do diddly squat to stop kooks and criminals from doing what they will do. Obama is a true ‘dumb@$$.’

    Seems to me a few of these “orders” will allow the Fed. gov’t to know all about ur Dr. Visits, med.’s etc…and I now have to wonder….how many ppl will this DETER from seeking mental health help…if they think…big brother is looking over my shoulder…

      This is the exact goal. Less mental health visits, more mental instability, more potential for violence, more potential to further disarmament. ΜΟΛΩΝ ΛΑΒΕ

    There is suddenly a new class of criminals: those who legally and lawfully own items that have suddenly been declared illegal. They can’t catch the current crop of criminals, so they create a law criminalizing the law-abiding citizen.


    We the People, unite!

    #5 says they can seize your gun before they do a background check. That gives them the right to take your guns and then tell you they are doing a background check that will take years so you can say good bye to your guns.
