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

I'll go along with that. That'd sll I'll go with, the ONLY thing he's done to actually "Prevent" Gun nuts from shooting Kids.

#2 Gun crimes already carry stiff penalties.

#3 As Bigjim said, and criminals and crazies don't care and will still do violence despite what the law says.

Following liberal logic on gun control, we should outlaw meth and crack since it does so much harm and is easily found on the streets, right?

#4 I had a close look at these executive orders, and I also believe that they are a whole lot of nothing. And they don't seem to exceed the exceed the president's authority for the most part. He has the right to name a head of the ATF. He has the right to instruct his departments to conduct studies. He has the right to tell them to (in essence) try to enforce the law harder. I might not *like* Obama, but I don't see that he's breaking any new ground here.

#5 Tell us first about government's Fast and Furious gun-running to the drug cartels in Mexico and gun-running to our AQ enemies in Syria. Also come clean on Benghazi.

#6 The devil is in the details. Would anyone really trust this President with the power these EOs would give him and and the bureaucracy of the government?

#7 "The State must declare the child to be the most precious treasure of the people. As long as the government is perceived as working for the benefit of the children, the people will happily endorse any curtailment of liberty and almost any deprivation".

#8 Some of the EOs are fairly straight-forward and fairly clear. Many other EOs are couched in generalities and leave out specifics. Without details and specifics, the door is open to vast power and control over law-abiding citizens with no effect on reducing violence. The EOs only serve to disarm law-abiding citizens. No mention is made of Hollywood's role in promoting violence through movies and television. Nothing is said of violent lyrics in music (gangsta rap) which promote violence to woman, police, and others. Nothing is said in these EOs about controlling gang violence. Nothing is said about the role of the main stream media in hyping violence in the media and what role this might play in violence. Nothing is said about the government's role in weakening the laws of the country (immigration, gun-running, etc.) and the lack of respect for the government and the law that this creates. Like health care and TARP funds, these EOs have been created in a rushed manner in a knee-jerk reaction to tragic events.
