Obama's Executive Order Takes Your Tax Dollars & Uses Them For Gun Control Propaganda


In Barack Obama's 23 executive orders last week, one that is extremely significant is the study he ordered the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to begin regarding the causes of gun violence and how to reduce it. Gun violence is not a disease. It is not a public health issue, but with his Presidential memorandum, Obama has made it that, which was nothing more than a sneaky assault on congressional authority so that he can then take taxpayer money to fund his gun control propaganda.

“While year after year, those who oppose even modest gun-safety measures have threatened to defund scientific or medical research into the causes of gun violence, I will direct the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to go ahead and study the best ways to reduce it,” said Mr. Obama.

The memo the President issued gives authority to the CDC to "sponsor" other entities for the study. The memo reads:

The Secretary of Health and Human Services (Secretary), through the Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and other scientific agencies within the Department of Health and Human Services, shall conduct or sponsor research into the causes of gun violence and the ways to prevent it. The Secretary shall begin by identifying the most pressing research questions with the greatest potential public health impact, and by assessing existing public health interventions being implemented across the Nation to prevent gun violence.

This is nothing more than a way to put money in the pockets of anti-gun groups that will promote the Obama agenda. It has nothing to do with health, which is cited several times in the memo.

One thing must be noted and that is that Barack Obama is not the first to use this tactic. The Washington Times reports,

Congress clamped down on the spending after President Clinton used the CDC and National Institutes of Health to create material advancing his theme of treating gun ownership as a public health issue, rather than a constitutional right. Millions in taxpayer funds were blown on junk science, such as $2.6 million used to determine if teenagers who are shot are more likely to have been drinking and carrying a gun. An additional $2 million went to figure out whether moving bars and liquor stores would prevent gun violence in communities.

By calling gun violence a “public health crisis” on Wednesday, Mr. Obama echoed Mr. Clinton’s model. It’s a move that could cost lives, as shifting funding away from fighting disease creates severely misplaced priorities. In 2010, 780,213 Americans died from cardiovascular disease and 574,743 from cancer, compared with 11,078 firearm homicides.

Under the Bush administration, the CDC already conducted a two-year independent study of the laws, including bans on specified firearms or ammunition; gun registration; concealed-weapon carry; and zero-tolerance for firearms in schools. The scientists concluded in 2003 that there was “insufficient evidence to determine the effectiveness of any of the firearms laws reviewed for preventing violence.”

So Obama follows the Clinton playbook by doing an end run around Congress and using taxpayer money of those who believe in the United States Constitution and the Second Amendment to push anti-Second Amendment propaganda. This is exactly the kind of thing that Senator Rand Paul(R-KY) expressed that needs to be dealt with by Congress.

    The heart of problem with young people killing many is created by left wing liberalism. Liberals want to give licence to, they want to prevent the young mostlyfrom hearing about God and right and wrong. They want to fill their minds with hollywood depravity. Liberals masquarade as being for all people,namely the young to give them all the good things, the things they deserve, but instead they are destro9ying them from within the soul. Liberals remind me of what Jesus said would happen to those who caused a young one to stumble. Put a cement block on ther foot and drop them in the ocean. Why so harsh:Just think of all the innocense Liberals are corrupting

    Now all gun owners have a disease..sweet idea.

    Great comments everyone. I needed a laugh today. And before you all go and play the "oh, this guys a commie!" or some other bs reason to write me off, maybe you should do some research into what communism is, and how it is completely separate in ideology from socialism. The labeling in this country is way over played. He's a conservative, she's a liberal, blah blah blah blah. We've become so consumed with polarization merely on labels we've forgotten what it's like to compromise and listen to different ideas. I am not supporting one thing or another here but our country was founded on ideas of freedom of ideas and the ability to express our political beliefs without fear of repercussion. Our freedom of speech, which is a PRIVILEGE, has been misconstrued to allow people to be a$$holes. Knock of the moronic rhetoric and band together. Unity is what will the US strong, not bickering about stupid stuff that in the long run hasn't really made us worse or won't make a tremendous difference. And if you think the deficit is only to blame on Obama, you clearly haven't been following US policy for the last 50 years.

    Back to calling Obama socialist or communist, if you knew what either of those systems were you would know Obama is neither. Obama renegotiated three free trade agreements, with Panama Colombia, and South Korea, that were signed by President Bush. Obama has also been working with Congress on the Trans-Pacific Partnership. Free-trade is far from communism and socialism. I can understand the argument that universal healthcare may overstep people's freedoms. But if our government provides firefighters, police, military forces, why not healthcare? There is more than enough fat to cutoff in government spending that could be better spent on basic needs that people require. People have healthcare, preventative healthcare not this pharmaceutical praising society we have, they are inherently more wealthy. Since poverty creates crime, health care for all is pretty good. Universal healthcare works as well. The US is the only industrialized country without it. Sound a little strange? Mind you, socialism can coincide with democracy.

    And if you're conservative because of your religion, which I understand you are entitled to your opinion, just remember that Jesus was in favor of curing the sick and saving the poor but at the same time preached community involvement and actively engaging the less fortunate. Clearly, Jesus would have been a communist. Maybe that's why he was stung up on the cross.

    Obama was very careful to call those items Executive ACTIONS, since Executive Orders have an entirely different role--& force of law regarding activities within the Executive Branch only. Many of these "Actions" amount to nothing more than "good intentions", like "commit to plan to..."---which leaves a lot of room for failure ("Well, we didn't SAY we'd actually ACCOMPLISH anything!"), while others are lead-ins to very drastic curtailments of basic rights outlined in the Bill of Rights. Some are so vague as to be completely meaningless--a "national dialogue" on mental health led by Kathleen Sebelius & someone else--(REALLY?)
    On the whole, the 23 "Actions" have the feel of a hastily slapped together gun control package, that has been padded with a few perfunctory nods to other issues like mental health--which was the purpose of the project to start with!

    Here is the group that all guns need to be confiscated from:

    Ft Hood: Registered Democrat /Muslim

    Columbine: Too young to vote; both families were registered Democrats and progressive liberals

    Virginia Tech: Wrote hate mail to President Bush and to his staff

    Colorado Theater: Registered Democrat, staff worker on the Obama campaign, Occupy Wall Street participant, progressive liberal
    .
    Connecticut School Shooter: Registered Democrat, hated Christians

    Studies have shown Liberalism is a mental disorder, and yet the Liberals are the ones committing these mass murders, and yet it's the liberals who call for more gun control, for what? So they could commit more mass murders?

  • mallen11

    He really thnks he can control this Nation. Big mistake but it will take We the People to turn back to God and follow His mandates to make the difference.

    Proverbs 1:7 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction.
    II Peter 3:8… but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory, both now and to the day of eternity.

    I am feeling more and more like a subject, a slave instead of an American citizen. A citizen is supposed to have a say in what happens but with all of the executive orders, the closed door deals, the money and insider information that changes hands in Washington, a dysfunctional Congress, a President who doesn't like America and wants to fundamentally change it, a President who consistently ignores the Constitution, a President who makes major policy changes that we don't find about until it's too late, a President who ignores positive opportunities and applauds and rewards regimes around the world - I don't feel much like a citizen.

    I get more angry at this administration every day with the insult ot our integrity as a country founded on truth and justice to where it is not even a shadow of it's former self. Lies, deceit and just all out disgusting excuses for politicians. We all need to band together and go get rid of them ALL and start our country over again with decent patriotic AMERICANS.

  • gwedem5995

    I mean't to say, you cannot legislate things like this.

  • gwedem5995

    All I see from the presidents executive orders is more spending. Just how many studies do we need. I noticed he did not address the violent movies coming out of hollywood or the violent video games or finding out what kind of drugs each individual had been taking for their mental disorders. I know one thing for sure, if guns would be banned, the criminals who want to do harm will find a way to get them. Has the war on drugs stopped the drug users. You can legislate things like this.

    Obama is at war against all Americans that believe in God, Guns, and The Constitution.
    And he is funding his war with our taxpayer money.

    Bettor use of the CDC would be to find out why liberals lose all their brain cells as soon as they get elected.

    After a shooting spree, they always want to take the guns away from the people who didn't do it.

    They are not Presidential Executive Orders - He has made his recommendations to Congress, and Congress will not go against their constitiuents by and large. If he gets pissed and does Exec. Orders late - The House will not fund them.
