Obama just mentioned violent video games

Yup, BlueStig nailed it in his paranoia drenched rants. As you can see from the list of executive orders signed, Obama didn't just rewrite the Constitution, he tore it up and threw it away. He's sending jackbooted thugs into your homes to collect your guns right now. Oh wait, no that's it at all. I should have actually read the list before embarrasing myself by over-reacting.

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.

I dislike the Obama Administration.

I dislike both the Republican, and Democratic Parties in general.

He's such a f***ing hypocrite....

The 900 gun deaths number he mentioned was 65% suicides, the remainder was mostly criminal versus criminal, no loss there.

He claimed that nobody was attacking freedom, but he failed to mention the FACTS of proposals coming from his own party AND HIMSELF that have attacked the 1st, 2nd, 4th, and 14th amendments steadily since he/they took office.

And he only signed 3 executive orders today but mentioned signing 23 of them. I want to know the EXACT wording of all of them, and IMHO he should not be allowed to sign anything into law all by himself that violates the Constitution.

The s*** just hit the fan folks, how many of you are just going to sit back and do nothing?


The truth is out there dude.......... just keep looking mulder. I would assume you are one of those people who demand to be called by your first middle and last name by everyone you meet.

Bluestigs response:

"Sure, right now he's issuing strongly worded common sense advice to keep guns out of the hands of mentally unstable people and increasing awareness of potentially dangerous criminals with firearms, but how long till he's SENDING THEM ALL TO THE CONCENTRATION CAMPS!?!?!?"

(He actually responded to one of my posts on gun control by claiming that the first step is getting rid of guns, the second step was genocide)

So what exactly did he say about video games to make the speech relevant to this board?
#19wh0_kn0wsPosted 1/16/2013 11:04:10 AM
it's more irritating that any of this is being discussed because of the sake of children. adults are getting killed, it isn't as much of a problem apparently.

1-23

1. Every state already has a background check system, we don't need a federal system since that's dangerously close to the Federal law preventing a national gun registration scheme.

2. More Socialist health care crap, more of what we don't need.

3. Incentives for states to violate individual personal privacy and possibly violate the laws governing collection of information on non-criminals.

4. Categorizing people, more of politicians deciding they know better how to run your life than you do.

5. They already HAVE that ability in existing laws.

6. Private sellers should legally be off limits, privately sold "gun show loophole guns" only account for less than 1% of all crime guns.

7. More taxpayer money wasted.

8. See #7. Locks can be picked or broken and very few safes will stop a determined thief.

9. The guns already get traced by local LEOs, no need for Federal involvement.

10. The FBI already compiles that information, the DoJ would be wasting time and money doing it all again.

11. The BATFE already has a director, he just needs to be "confirmed" which doesn't require a god damned executive order to accomplish....

12. LEOs already have that training, emergency workers have laws allowing them to carry on duty, Feds can stay out of schools too, let them work up their own plan on their own time and own money.

13. Vague Much?

14. The CDC needs to research actual DISEASES and figure out how to cure them, not waste time and money researching guns when other federal agencies have already done that job.

15. More of his "electronic theft prevention" ideas that could easily be disabled because guns are mechanical devices, not electronic.

16. More Socialist health care combined with an invasion of privacy, typical Obummer moronic crap.

17. Doctor Patient Confidentiality.

18. This I agree with, but where's the money coming from?

19. Those places already have their own plans, no need for Federal interference.

20-23. More Socialist govt. interference in the medical community.

Almost everything is already covered in existing laws, and the money is NOT THERE for any of it.
