    Here it is folks.

    CattleDog has done all you lazy readers a favor of doing a great job of briefly outlining this list of actions in post 2,while still hitting all the important parts.

    1. Issue a Presidential Memorandum to require federal agencies to make relevant data available to the federal background check system.

    2. Address unnecessary legal barriers, particularly relating to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, that may prevent states from making information available to the background check system.

    3. Improve incentives for states to share information with the background check system.

    4. Direct the Attorney General to review categories of individuals prohibited from having a gun to make sure dangerous people are not slipping through the cracks.
    5. Propose rulemaking to give law enforcement the ability to run a full background check on an individual before returning a seized gun.

    6. Publish a letter from ATF to federally licensed gun dealers providing guidance on how to run background checks for private sellers.

    7. Launch a national safe and responsible gun ownership campaign.

    8. Review safety standards for gun locks and gun safes (Consumer Product Safety Commission).

    9. Issue a Presidential Memorandum to require federal law enforcement to trace guns recovered in criminal investigations.

    10. Release a DOJ report analyzing information on lost and stolen guns and make it widely available to law enforcement.

    11. Nominate an ATF director.

    12. Provide law enforcement, first responders, and school officials with proper training for active shooter situations.

    13. Maximize enforcement efforts to prevent gun violence and prosecute gun crime.

    14. Issue a Presidential Memorandum directing the Centers for Disease Control to research the causes and prevention of gun violence.

    15. Direct the Attorney General to issue a report on the availability and most effective use of new gun safety technologies and challenge the private sector to develop innovative technologies.

    16. Clarify that the Affordable Care Act does not prohibit doctors asking their patients about guns in their homes.

    17. Release a letter to health care providers clarifying that no federal law prohibits them from reporting threats of violence to law enforcement authorities.

    18. Provide incentives for schools to hire school resource officers.

    19. Develop model emergency response plans for schools, houses of worship and institutions of higher education.

    20. Release a letter to state health officials clarifying the scope of mental health services that Medicaid plans must cover.

    21. Finalize regulations clarifying essential health benefits and parity requirements within ACA exchanges.

    22. Commit to finalizing mental health parity regulations.

    23. Launch a national dialogue led by Secretaries Sebelius and Duncan on mental health.

    Ill sum it up....were going to :

    1) do a bunch of **** that we should have already done
    b) do things twice because bureaucratic redundancy never fails
    #) further clarify that we, as a barely functioning government are complete idiots and you failed as a country in hiring us

    thank you for time

    I do. Why does a Doctor need to know if I have guns in my house?

    #16. Clarify that the Affordable Care Act does not prohibit doctors asking their patients about guns in their homes.

    I do not have trust in our medical providers, trust is earned and not given away. Who to say they say something else when you turn your back.

    This one could be rather onerous.

    4. Direct the Attorney General to review categories of individuals prohibited from having a gun to make sure dangerous people are not slipping through the cracks.

    I think we have evidence already that veterans are considered a risk to the Obama admin. I think our Fast and Furious Attorney General could really have a field day with this one.

    Be afraid, Very afraid once we veterans are disarmed!

    I would hope the Supreme Court would shoot down and decision made by the AG to disarm a group of individuals, as far as doctors go, if they ask me if I own guns I would simply say "No" and try to keep a straight face.

    Simply, this was only a list of executive actions to be taken by the president by order, the other half (AWB, 10 round mag limit, universal background checks) still stands but will have to go through congress. Hope that clears it up for ya...

    My issue is that NONE of these things in anyway targets our countries issues on violence! They're not even close.
    If you haven't seen it yet, gunsamerica posted a nice video going over the actual numbers. Since the 90's our violent crime rate has dropped 50%
