"If an individual is deemed to pose a risk to the public, due to mental instability or lack of safety, they shouldn't be allowed the deadly weapons with which they may cause great harm or death. A gun or fire arm, is not a toy and we the people do in fact have a right to say "No, you who are unsafe, you who would out of malicious or irresponsibility cause great harm or death to others, should in fact, not have or be allowed to have access to or possess on your person or in your home, a fire arm. Which a fire arm is a deadly weapon and tool only useful in imposing death upon another living creature."

I agree with that. The problem is one of trust. I don't trust my government to adjudicate any such program fairly. I think they have a disarmament agenda, and if we give them the power to judge the mental stability of ANYONE, that power will be abused to the maximum extent that it can be. That's why I'm against implementing any program that will allegedly do the same damn thing I'm in favor of.

@Robert. Please explain to me, in your opinion, what exactly is a "mental instability"? Also, how did you come to this conclusion?

LMFAO. Robert, you are a trip my uninformed child. You obviously don't understand "legal" guns, the "legal" ownership process, or the intended purpose of "legal" guns and the evolution of 2nd Amendment and the government involvement. Not to mention the "legal" American Sportsman or the "legal" recreational target shooter.

There are approximately 2000 illegal stolen/obtained/manufactured guns smuggled across the US/Mexico border every day headed to Latin America and the various Latin American drug cartels. In return, these illegal guns, drugs, paraphernalia and cartel members are smuggled back into the US. These same "illegal" guns are used in robberies, hijackings, extortions, gang murders and executions to further the drug trade. It's a vicious cycle.

Robert or ZZ, when you can explain to me how Obama's exclusionary EO banning of law abiding citizens from "legally" owning a gun to protect live and property, come back and talk to me. But, please be prepared to explain how Obama's EO is going to reduce the number of "Illegal" gun trafficking, drug and gang violence and street crimes at the same time. At that point you will have my undivided attention.

Before Obama, Clinton, and G.W. Bush wanted background check loophole closed at gun shows.

Bush's (and possibly Clinton's) argument was that the federal government created the loophole, so the federal government should close it.

"By his executive order, President Obama acted to protect the citizens of the United States of America from death at an early age and untimely death through acts of domestic violence."

Acted? Did he issue an executive order on the matter?

Maybe I missed it.

@ Goodenuff. So far I haven't been able to find the complete text of Obama's EO. Only numerous summaries of it.

But, from what I have read you are right. I don't see any "new" restrictions on guns based on nomenclature, function or design. Instead, I'm seeing a backdoor approach to circumvent the 2nd Amendment by not further prohibiting any more guns. But rather prohibiting "We the People" from legally owning guns through exclusion. In other words, don't ban guns. Ban the "people" who want to legally own a gun. I'll give credit where credit is due. Obama is a crafty SOB.

~~Universal Background Checks for Guns

There are currently 32 states in America that have no statewide laws requiring background checks for the private sales of guns.

This lack of statewide or federal universal background checks for guns leaves large loopholes for violent felons and the mentally disturb to easily gain access to guns as illustrated below.

By his executive order, President Obama acted to protect the citizens of the United States of America from death at an early age and untimely death through acts of domestic violence. When I president is sworn-in before a Supreme Court Judge, he takes the oath of office regarding matters such as domestic violence. You can read about it in your American Citizens Hanbook, p. 143. {Aricle II Executive Department}~~

I'd have to go back and read the proposed HR 4629 language, but the barrel shroud clause was in the previous, now lifted, assault style weapons ban.

I'm unaware of an Executive Order being considered that would ban any firearms. Perhaps you can enlighten me as to where I can find information on such an EO being considered.
