The President outlined his gun control plan in his speech yesterday. He signed 23 executive orders that will be enacted right away. Now some of these orders can be understandable to both sides of the argument, like better background checks and gun education to all new gun owners. Yet, what about the other 21 executive dictates?
Here is a link with all 23 executive orders via The Blaze.
But what does this all really mean? Number 9 really peaked my interest, “9. Issue a Presidential Memorandum to require federal law enforcement to trace guns recovered in criminal investigations.” So would that not expose our own Attorney General, and his department? They are implicated in the selling of guns that are involved in the death of Boarder Patrol Agents and in numerous drug related incidents in Mexico and America? A situation fondly called Fast and Furious.
Number 16 is also interesting when considering your personal rights: “16. Clarify that the Affordable Care Act does not prohibit doctors asking their patients about guns in their homes.” This will have your doctor be an informant to the government. Doctors will now have to ask their patients if they own or if there are guns in their home. This is to protect us from the mentally ill who may want to hurt themselves or someone else. Mental illness education and awareness is needed but to have doctors subject all patients, which will be demanded, to this questioning is an infringement on the personal rights of American citizens.
Where does the line to personal freedoms and government control begin and end? Does anyone know anymore?
