I just read the whitehouse.gov site on the executive actions.
The EO’s were written by someone who hasn’t got a clue what the laws actually ARE, as its stating things that are already THE LAW as things that are being put into place by EO.
So basically its a whole bunch of executive orders and presidential memorandums that do nothing but pander to the low-information types like Brady Bunch, Moms Demanding Something, et al, to be able to say *Look! I signed a whole bunch of papers to make you feel safer!*
Even the HIPAA-centric EO does nothing, because for use in line with the 1968 GCA, those adjudicated as mentally defective, or unable to manage their own affairs, etc., ARE ALREADY BEING PUT INTO THE NICS AS PROHIBITED PERSONS. But I guess that this is like the Animal House *Double-Secret Probation* in that these folks are going to be put ito NICS twice, so that everyone knows that the Administration REALLY MEANS it this time.
Smoke and mirrors. Bread and Circuses. Dog and Pony. Call it what you will, the only thing these EO’s do as ask congress to approve more budget money to hire another 250 FBI personnel to be able to process the NICS checks faster, and to approve funding for another 200 ATF agents to surf the Interwebz looking for *illegal online sellers*.
Which means that all the *secret FB groups* where folks sell/trade guns are going to go buh-bye, because if you sell a gun on the internet, and FB is part of the Internet Experience, the ATF will come for you. And I’m sure that FB is going to be leaned on real hard to shut down gun trading/selling groups.
There you have it in a nutshell. $500 million dollars requested to hire ATF investigators to hang out all day and troll FB.
Also, I just realized that the one thing which EVERY Democrat was demanding only a few short weeks ago, and that the Moms Demand Something folks along with the Brady Bunchers were gnashing their teeth over was glaringly absent….
The EO’s didn’t mention a damned thing about blending the No-Fly and Terrorist Watch Lists into the NICS system.
I guess Obambi was told in no uncertain terms that if he put Mr. Winky into that particular hole in the wall, on the other side there was a meat grinder just waiting to eat…
