President Stompy Feet Subverting Democratic Process…. Removing Barriers In Health Privacy Laws For Gun Control


Obama taking executive action on guns after Senate vote

Federal law bans certain mentally ill people from purchasing firearms, but not all states are providing data to stop the prohibited sales to the FBI’s background check system. A federal review last year found 17 states contributed fewer than 10 mental health records to the database, meaning many deemed by a judge to be a danger still could have access to guns. 

The Obama administration was starting a process Friday aimed at removing barriers in health privacy laws that prevent some states from reporting information to the background check system. The action comes two days after the Senate rejected a measure that would have required buyers of firearms online and at gun shows to pass a background check. That’s already required for shoppers at licensed gun dealers. 

Stung by the defeat, Obama vowed to keep up the fight for the background check expansion but also to do what he could through executive action.

Because the will of the people will not be heard in this administration.

    The brothers Tsarnaev had quite an arsenal, including guns and plenty of ammunition. They were manifestly not insane, just fanatical.

    Police chased them to the nearby suburb of Watertown and during the pursuit the brothers threw bombs from the car. Residents in Watertown saw the brothers crouching behind a black Mercedes SUV, shooting at dozens of police 70m away.

    It will be very interesting to find out where they got their weapons. Background checks of religion or ethnicity are not going to fly, and would be unjust. Therefore nothing in Obama’s proposed policies would have had any effect upon the street warfare which went on last night.

    So a logical question to Mr Obama is this: what, sir, are you going to do to stop shootings like this?

      Rational people would say to regulate more who comes here rather than our guns, but I’m afraid our left isn’t rational. Rights and privileges…… it’s all so confusing.

    I can’t wait to see the list of questions on the soon to be required ‘Are you Insane?’ Form at gunshow ticket booths and online gun store webpages.

    All unconstitutional. However, it takes time for the court to slap him down. And that time, he can do great evil.

    Great title. Reminds me of a petulant child
