Isn’t he in Hawaii? Can’t he stay there for awhile. Why does he always have to be so busy?

Michelle must have hated being cooped up with him. Eh, vice versa

from purchasing a firearm for mental health reasons.

So if you are gifted a firearm, you are good.

Folks, the battleground is going to be the DSM-5, and its rejection by state level associations.

I suppose that the President has nothing better to do with his time, seeing as how his signature legislation (Obamacare) is such a resounding success...

This has probably been in the works for a couple months at least. They were waiting for a good time to release it.

Mental health issues is a slippery slope without any real definition. In other worlds mental issues is camouflage for arbitrary and capricious second amendment assault on an individual basis. Democrats think that those who cling to their God and guns are already mentally unstable, and I believe that in order to a liberal one has to suspend reality and replace it with wishful thinking. This kind of executive tyranny is dangerous no matter who is defining mental health disqualifications. The right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. The answer is to shoot bad guys not disarm everyone else.

BREAKING: Obama Issues New Executive Actions on Background Checks for Gun Purchases
Katie Pavlich | Jan 03, 2014

“While it is important states are easily able to submit mental health information to the federal background check system, changes in HIPAA should come with extreme scrutiny and thought due to a high risk of changes in the law resulting in major privacy violations. Many doctors are already asking patients (and not just those with mental health problems) about whether or not they have a gun in their home, a fine line to walk.

In the executive action announcement, the White House also urged Congress to pass more gun control measures, some of which Democrats voted no on early last year. “

“However, the administration said the rule change would not require reporting on general mental health care or legally prohibit someone from having a firearm solely because they sought treatment.”

Yeah, sure. Like you can keep your current plan.

The MOST IMPORTANT ELECTION in American History is THIS November.

It determines whether or not the MOST IMPORTANT TRIAL in American History occurs in 2015.

THAT Trial will determine whether or not a ling, unconstitutional tyrant who spits on the Bill of Rights and Constitution and has waged a racist war of extermination against selected ethnic/age groups and selected religious groups is removed from office and thrown into the prison he deeply merits along with his chief henchmen and women, or America becomes just another third world banana republic with an elected chief official who makes the law and the constitution say whatever he says it does.

The GOP has to take over the Congress and conservatives and libertarians have to take over the GOP.

This should illustrate very nicely that Hussein himself never initiates anything.

Other people are guiding the actions of the Executive Branch — he just signs off on whatever they come up with.

Saw an article on here yesterday about a “transgender lesbian feminist” gun owner.

Now THAT is someone with mental health issues, IMO.

If a doctor or nurse can go to jail by violating the HiPPA law, how are state employees not going to go to jail if they provide private health state information to the federal government?

"Mental Health Issues" - purposely chosen for the potentially broad interpretation.

BHO added Mental Health care to Obamacare - just to identify opportunities to reject a Carry Permit.

Mental illness does not equate to violence.

It is evil to pigeonhole people like this.

Yep, then we just have to change the criteria for what constitutes a disqualifying mental health condition!

Isn’t communism/fascism great?!!!

Impeach Obama in 2014. Period.

The US House of Representatives is analogous to a Police Force - - - they “arrest” the perp by Impeaching the perp.

The US Senate is analogous to a Jury of Peers who have the power to throw the Impeached perp off of the taxpayer gravy train, take away his residence, ban him from building a Library paid for by us, and ban him from using his personal Corporate Jet, Air Force One.

Most RINO Americans want to wait, Wait, WAIT! until they control the House, the Senate and the White House.

To those weak-kneeded summer soldier “patriots” I say “Enjoy the Obamanation that you have tolerated since January, 2009.”

In similar manner, we Summer Soldier Conservatives continue to tolerate a wimpy, hand-wringing, sobbing, crybaby Speaker of the House Boehner as our sorry chief policeman.

“Oh, if only my best friends across the aisle would just play nicey nice - - - “ is the perfect quote that fire-in-the-belly Socialist-Democrats love to hear from their doormat, cowardly, Obamacrat RINOs.

Yes indeed, as long as we WAIT for things to be PERFECT we will never attack those whose goal is to destroy the US Constitution.

Suck it up you sorry House RINOs, and replace John “Benghazi Coverup” Boehner with SC Rep Trey Gowdey, or SC Rep Joe Wilson.

Without a fire-in-the-belly Republican Speaker of the House, Obamacrat RINOs will continue to cave in to “their best friends across the aisle,” to the unbridled glee of every Democrat voter in America!

Pretend that you are fighting to enforce the US Constitution, House RINOs.

Fight or go home, House RINOs.

FIGHT or we will send you home!

Impeach Obama in 2014. Period.

I agree it is what should be done. But it won’t. The RINO coalition in either body will not risk being called racist. We need to primary our RINOs. Kick em out.

Not to mention, who decides what is mentally unstable? This sounds like a broad brush to me.

I thought GCA was going to do this?

“Today we begin to disarm the criminal and the careless and the insane. All of our people who are deeply concerned in this country about law and order should hail this day.”

- Lyndon Johnson when he signed the 1968 GCA into law.

LBJ was murderous scum. A lier and a pig. People died who was in his way. Perhaps to the very top.
