Obama Issues 23 Executive Orders on Guns

The President today decided to bypass Congress yet one more time on yet one more issue and signed twenty-three executive “actions” regarding gun control, while nagging Congress to do more.  These orders were quickly criticizedfor not doing anything which would have prevented the Sandy Hook Massacre, which should be the litmus test for any new law.   Here’s Marco Rubio:

“Nothing the president is proposing would have stopped the massacre at Sandy Hook.  President Obama is targeting the 2nd Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens instead of seriously addressing the real underlying causes of such violence. …Rolling back responsible citizens’ rights is not the proper response to tragedies committed by criminals and the mentally ill.”

Plus, these executive orders will cost at least $4.5 billion to implement.

Give them a read.  There’s a lot of bureaucratic and regulatory nonsense in there, along with some pie-in-the-sky liberal “responsible gun ownership campaign” merely designed to make lefties feel good about “action.”

Adam Lanza didn’t own any guns.  He stole them from his mom, then murdered her before massacring school kids and teachers.  He was mentally ill.  Yet, only numbers 20, 22, and 23 mention mental health and they just deal with Medicaid payments, other regulations, and a “national dialogue.”  The others only make life more difficult for law-abiding citizens, which at the end of the day exposes more liberal advantage-taking than actual problem-solving.
