#1 Issue a Presidential Memorandum directing the Centers for Disease Control to research the causes and prevention of gun violence.
Violence is now a disease? Hereditary, developmental, or acquired?

#2 No mention of the US government selling assault rifles to criminals.

#3 give law enforcement the ability to run a full background check on an individual before returning a seized gun.
So seizing a gun gives permission for a 'fishing expedition'? Was the gun seized 'for cause' of some kind, or just because a policeman saw it? Was it seized from the owner or from a gun shop or from someone who had stolen it?

#4 Launch a national safe and responsible gun ownership campaign.
Redundant; NRA does it already.

#5 Issue a Presidential Memorandum to require federal law enforcement to trace guns recovered in criminal investigations.
They don't do this already? It takes an EO? Why?

#6 Launch a national dialogue led by Secretaries Sebelius and Duncan on mental health.
I guess it makes sense for crazy people to lead the discussion on craziness...

#7 Besoeker: having the CDC involved has been a long-time dream/plan for the progressives. They want to use it for stealth regulation, the same way they've wanted the CDC to regulate tobacco, salt and sugar. I'm not kidding. If the CDC can 'study' it, they can come up with 'recommendations'. Remember, they want 'science' to drive the debate -- their science.

#8 Could not agree more Doctor. That CDC crowd are are pathogens unto themselves. If you want reliably independent, valid research conducted, visit BMI in Columbus.

#9 Issue a Presidential Memorandum to require federal law enforcement to trace guns recovered in criminal investigations.
And if they trace them back to those sold by DoJ in Fast and Furious after murdering Mexican citizens who's going to be prosecuted? /rhet question

#11 Nothing about providing firearms to our enemies in the Mideast either.

#12 I wonder if when I go see my VA primary care physician whether they will ask me about weapons I possess.

#13 Theres actually a progession going on here.
#6 :Is the setup for later gun regulations and backgroud checks on personal sales and gifts.
-Remember, govt programs never go away, they just look for something to do.-
#14 : The CDC study. Want to bet what they official result is? Health and safety risk.
Which leads to
#16 : Will these doctors questions be official, or can you decline to discuss?
#21 : Your health insurer and ACA supplier gets to ask specific questions regarding health risks, aka smoking, drinking, drugs. They add gun ownership to list, and want specific answers, as in type, serial numbers, and ammunition availability. Theyre not the govt, so no rights apply. Price of coverage would be based on the answers, coverage could be denied/cancelled based on answers or the lack thereof.
Now tell me Im paranoid.

#14 Better to ask if you own or operate a motor vehicle given the higher rate of deaths associated with the technology.
Even better to ask if you had been in a hospital - An average of 195,000 people in the USA died due to potentially preventable, in-hospital medical errors in each of the years 2000, 2001 and 2002, according to a new study of 37 million patient records...

#15 The training for active shooter response is long overdue. Only thing missing is giving teachers the firearm to fully carry out the full gamut of proper responses. Some of these are horrid CDC, consumer product safety, etc. but there are a few good things in there (surprised the hell out of me).

#16 Meanwhile, D'JANGO Fans, those illegals sneaking into the US from Mexico are taking a well-earned siesta because their illegal comrades up in Canada are demanding "fair-n-equal time" [catch-up] wid Mexico as per covert penetration into the US.
NO NEED FOR PRIVATE GUN OWNERSHIP ANYMORE BECAUSE THE CANADIANS WILL STOP'EM COLD JUST AS THEY STOPPED SEVERAL SOVIET ARMY GROUPS FROM INVADING ALASKA, CANADA, + UPPER US IN THE ORIGINAL "RED DAWN".
