Good morning all, I excerised (yet again) my 2nd amendment right yesterday (new FNAR!). Just joined the forum. Now watching BO on TV to see how he's going to 'make us safer' (while hiding behind the kids and keeping his armed guards for life at his side).

Guess if my doctor is going to pop me for owning guns while I'm sedated, I'd better keep an attorney on retainer for any visits to the ER, and keep him on speed dial for those rare occasions when a doctor's assessment of my collection and it's status put my rights (and valuables) in jeopardy....

The following is a list, provided by the White House, of executive actions President Obama plans to take to address gun violence.
1. Issue a Presidential Memorandum to require federal agencies to make relevant data available to the federal 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.

He just listed the rights denied to various victims...those rights were taken by criminals, not acts of government. That is a dangerous and wrong headed comparison to make while calling for restrictions on law abiding citizens.

Anyone else think the 23 EOs listed are rather 'tepid' considering what we were fearing might come down?
