Watsa` matta` Barry, scared to get Impeached ?
NRA/GOA need to organize a march by gun owners/2nd Amendment supporters on Washington “ala” Tea Party demo of 2010.
I must have missed the part where private sales require background checks... guess he stopped short of that.
This list looks like a clean whiff ...
I'm more worried about what the gov of Md is going to do.
Like Fast & Furious, right?
A bunch of bull, except for pushing Doctors to question patients about their firearms.
“What firearms Dr., and why are you asking me about that when I’m getting a prostate exam anyway?”
what an idiot....2nd amendment or not...this is all meaningless nonsense. the libholes must be pissed.
My guess is someone sat him down and explained the separation of powers to him at a third grade level and he finally figured out that president and king aren’t the same thing.
Executive Orders are administrative orders to agencies under the Executive Branch, and those entities that are dumb enough to believe that Obama can order them to do something. The actions he directs his agencies to execute must also have a legal basis in established Federal Statute.
IOW, I am not his employee. I am most certainly not his subject. I won’t give him my guns. I won’t register them.
#16 - Doctors will ask if you have guns in the home.
The whole purpose of this is to vilify gun owners and make them out to be lunatics.
Maybe we could start with asking if people are pedophiles? You know, people who really hurt children?
#14 is patently illegal. The prohibition against such research is currently the law of the land and will remain so until expiration of the current CR or the replacement or omission of the provision by some successive funding bill.
Except... I don't think Brian Terry's family is laughing.
So much Kobuki theater and cellophane window dressing. Can’t believe i waitex to watch this non-event.
” 16. Clarify that the Affordable Care Act does not prohibit doctors asking their patients about guns in their homes”
He can’t do it. It’s already been stripped from ObamaCare®.
For sure, nothing to see here. For once a victory.
Like I trust that guy...What’s the catch?
Hmmm. Why do I get the feeling that "challenge" here really means someting more like "force", "coerce", or otherwise "convince" the private sector to do this, whether the market is asking for it or not?
Now we know why the Hussein regime has been encouraging people to sign up for SSDI for mental health reasons, under the guise of running out of unemployment benefits. He wants to take away their guns for having psychological problems. Easy to do on this one.
What firearms Dr., and why are you asking me about that when Im getting a prostate exam anyway?
Oh, and before we get into that Doc, could you explain what a Boundary Violation is?
