Here is a list provided by the White House of the 23 executive actions President Obama plans to take to reduce gun violence in the wake of the Newtown, Conn., massacre:
  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.

"Finalize regulations clarifying essential health benefits and parity requirements within ACA exchanges. "

Huh? WTF does this have to do with "gun control"

It would seem to me that what Obama is going to try and do is say that if you own a gun, you will suffer some kind of penalty within Obamacare.

This one is stupid, unecessary overkill.

# 18 and 19. Develop model emergency response plans for schools, houses of worship and institutions of higher education.
As if some central govt's bureaucrats far away in DC can come up with a one size fits all model for gasp....even houses of worship. It'll probably be like the govt's food pyramid. These places should each develop their own. What a micro-manager.

But this one is totalitarian and makes doctors work for the state as if we're a police state:

Oh, well this makes Obama and his own band of statist plutocrats FEEL GOOD while they stab Americans in the back.

I could say more...but don't have the time...yet.

This sounds like a euphemism for police/security officers that would likely be armed.

Isn't this what the NRA recommended and the anti-gun crowd went ballistic?

I'd put money on, more access to mental health will result in more shootings. That's because even the psychiatric profession admits it cannot cure, so they use drugs. The kind of drugs used for what I believe is the largest complaint, depression, are what have lead to psychotic episodes of gun violence. How about investigating BIG Pharma and the FDA, both of who know about such side effects? Instead the left increases their market for them. In the meantime, the left whines about corporatocracy when their own policies create and increase it.

That's another one I am not sure of...but it depends on how it gets done. Also, do they need any more incentives after what's happened?
I don't think so. Again, over-kill by paternaistic govt. This should be done just by state/district not the federal govt. Let's have more centralization.

Taxes will rise. The ignorant won't notice a damn thing. Awesome. Par the course.

Here's another very dangerous one. WTF will that mean? Pro gun patriots?

It's nothing. It's a photo op and a PR stunt.
