Obama Signs Executive Order To Bolster Gun Registry

President Obama has not just been speaking in front of cameras with victims of gun violence staged behind him, he’s also been busy bypassing Congress by signing executive orders and other actions.

In January, Obama issued 23 executive gun control proposals that were mostly organizational and procedural in nature. But now he has officially signed his first definitive executive order to take gun control into his own hands, according to The Hill.

The Hill reports:

The president has used his executive powers to bolster the national background check system, jumpstart government research on the causes of gun violence and create a million-dollar ad campaign aimed at safe gun ownership.

The executive steps will give federal law enforcement officials access to more data about guns and their owners, help keep guns out of the hands of criminals and the mentally ill, and lay the groundwork for future legislative efforts.

Obama’s Department of Justice says their aim is to strengthen the “quality and quantity of records contained within the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS).”

Last week the DOJ announced that it is pouring $20 million into beefing up the national gun registry.

“As part of President Obama’s comprehensive plan to reduce gun violence, the Administration is committed to enhancing and strengthening the national criminal record system in support of stronger firearm background checks,” said Attorney General Eric Holder. “The Department of Justice intends to take immediate and effective action to work with states to fill gaps in information currently available to the NICS system.”

The DOJ describes the new program as follows:

Funding will be provided under National Criminal History Improvement Program (NCHIP), NICS Act Record Improvement Program (NARIP), and a new, one-time initiative called, Improving the Completeness of Firearm Background Checks through Enhanced State Data Sharing. This new initiative creates a competitive grant program designed to incentivize states, territories and tribes to share information with NICS by closing information gaps that inhibit complete and accurate background checks.

Obama’s administrative action also included plans for more research into “trigger locks and firearm safe standards to determine if they need to be improved” - aka smart guns, and $1 million to promote gun control through a propaganda campaign.

The Hill writes:

Separately, the administration has given $1 million to the National Crime Prevention Council (NCPC) to create, produce and distribute a nationwide multimedia ad campaign on safe gun ownership and storage. The campaign is heading into the research phase and is expected to air by the early fall, according to a NCPC spokeswoman.

Isn’t this something the NRA does for free, funded by memberships? These multimedia ads will most likely be some ghastly “see something, say something” campaign to help viewers identify “irresponsible” gun owners.

Finally, this executive order will subsidize the surveillance-industrial complex through a “Cooperative Purchasing” program to provide schools with discounted rates for ”surveillance cameras, emergency communication systems, security design and support, and employee background check systems.”

Federally-funded Big Brother surveillance for schools by executive order. It seems the gun control frenzy is bearing more tyrannical fruit than could have been dreamed up by Orwell himself.

In summary, Obama has signed an executive order to expand and improve the gun database with $20 million in funding, appropriated money for a anti-gun propaganda blitz, and wants all schools tracked, traced, and databased.

If the motivation for an executive order like this was anything but gun control, Americans would probably be mortified. But instead, the numbed masses will likely cheer that he is finally doing something to avenge senseless murder. Problem-Reaction-Solution accomplished.

    These federal agents are supposed to be AMERICANS to yet they ignore the OATH they all took and will come with their guns blazing to KILL ALL AMERICANS WHO DISOBEY THEIR ORDERS. It would be great if we could fire them but we can’t, so we must defend our self from these federal tyrants anyway we can with anything we have to use. TRAITORS ALL.

    Please don’t take this too seriously.

    Don’t be alarmed about surveillance in school. If you have already concluded that public school is out of the question for your children, as we have in our house, then this latest idiocy should sound like distant thunder, not a tornado ripping through your front yard. With added surveillance, the only difference will be that they’ll have a good look at their failed policies in action the next time a gun free school zone is shot up by a madman.

    …That, and it will teach children to hide their drug hand-offs better due to the fact that they’re now being watched.

    No gun registry or database ever stopped a criminal from achieving gun ownership. Turning average citizens into criminals will only serve to further lessen the legitimacy of an already impotent rule of law. Bottom line – there are already enough un-registered, “non-smart” and un-locked guns for every hungry and pissed-off citizen to carry a basic load with a sidearm, and the president and his masters know that.

    And as far as the ad council telling us to report our neighbors who don’t lock our guns away from ourselves…this will be applauded in the old-money suburbs and criminal slums of New England, and laughed at throughout the sundry hills and small towns of Dixie. Nothing new is happening here, except further boldening of old battle lines.

    The most divisive president in the nation’s history further agitates old cultural differences that still split the land – to the shock and surprise of no one who’s been paying attention.

    Those “federal agents” USED to be the 2nd line of defense for the US Constitution (1st being the three branches exercising their constitutional defense against another branches encroachment – PLUS keeping their constitutionally assigned duties) but stopped doing their duty and started working against the USA about the same time they took the definition of “Domestic Enemy of the USA” off their web site – if not sooner.

    The Secret Service was the agency who was not only supposed to keep the fed gov “reps” safe, but were supposed to NOT let them go against the US Constitution as their SS) Oath – which is higher then law as the US Constitution is the supreme law and it REQUIRES the oath to support and defend it before anything else and that ALL laws be in pursuance of it – requires.

    None of this is lawful, but as long as “We the People”, including those in the MILITARY and in LAW ENFORCEMENT – plus attorneys and judges, allow this to continue, then it will get worse.

    Yep, the battle lines are drawn, i cant speak for everyone, but i had a belly full of this BS years ago and now im beyond pissed, beyond reasoning with, beyond listening to politics. Years ago some schools in PA got busted spying on the kids AT HOME with the webcams that were internally installed on the laptops that were issued to the kids by their school. My kids were subject to “thumb scanning for school lunches”, a program NO DOUBT FUNDED BY THE ROCKEFELLERS. I pulled them out after issuing a verbal beat-down on the schools management.

    My kids are worth pulling out of slavery, their minds are precious to me, they are precious to me. The State of Pennsylvania does not own them. My children are well versed in firearms and will be free men.

    It is crystal clear to me that the States and our federal government DO think they own us and our children and they seek more ownership. Its clear to me that women are greatly REWARDED in this country for divorcing their husbands, or having children outside of marriage by the entitlement programs. Its also clear the State are using the divorce laws and child support programs to neuter men, take away their power and render them helpless and financially destitute. When divorce is this profitable and beneficial for either party…….. you will see more of it. And we have, over 50%, and then our kids get to have their minds warped and controlled by the state school books that teach everything thats opposite of true Freedom, Liberty and Virtue.

    Obama and his like, are a sick parasites, whore’s of the Elitists agenda to strip power away from the Free Men of this country and gather it unto themselves. Our perverted governance wants ALL our guns, that is CRYSTAL clear. THEY are picking the fight, they are the offenders and violators of Free Men and our Constitution.

    THEY will be responsible for a Civil War of the do not stop.
    Everyone is fed up and sick of this bullshit.

    Title 18 United States Code Section 926 (Federal law Gun Control Act of 1968) makes it a FEDERAL FELONY for ANYONE to require a gun registration list of ANY kind if at any time said list in any way can or will be used as a gun confiscation list.

    He used his so-called executive Orders to protect Holder and his gun running scheme across the Mexican border. Now he wants to lay on his executive Bullshit to force a Gun Registry so they can track us down and riddle our bodies with 70 to 100 bullets when they do their jack booted raids. It will not work that way no more. People will begin to buy their fire arms and ammo from the underground. It’ll hurt the gunshop owners, but that’s the way it’s gotta be……………………

    Churchill Says:

    Of course, another Executive order to bolster the profiling of various segments and individuals of our population. As we do know who they consider as possible Domestic Terrorists, background checks, Gun Registry and Gun insurance is tantamount to profiling an individual as was the previous 2010 Census. Let’s not forget the DHS’s goal of expanding their Information Sharing with INTERPOL, various other law enforcement agencies and including the United Nations. As, it seems to me that the Execitive Branch of Government has an open and direct line from the UN and it’s Policy/Treaty makers.

    Lee, My thoughts exactlyThey can sign all kinds of scrap paper and make it say what they will….. But haven’t you ever heard it said that what you draw on paper works differently in real life. You can make all points end up where you want them on paper, but a lot of stuff don’t add up in the field…….
