Hey says:
Looks more like a typo than anything, especially considering if you go into the page itself, it says "7 hours ago." Won't stop the conspiracy nuts though.

For those keeping score, Obamas press conference was a non event. Asked Congress for an Assault Weapons Ban and a ban on High Capacity Mags (+10)

Also signed 23 excecutive orders that were basically subtle changes to existing laws and calling for a universal background check.

Hey says:
Any idea how different it'll be from the Brady Bill that was in place a few years back?

I'm just going to assume there's still nothing in the works to change anything regarding mental healthcare. Because that's just for the crazy people.

I havent seen the proposed bill, but I think its similar except for a long gun to be an assault weapon it only needs one of the following instead of two: bayonet lug, pistol grip, telescopic stock, grenade launcher...

You are 100% correct.

Mental problems aren't real. It's all in your head. Man up.

Still amazes me that people can buy grenade launchers.

FOGE says:
Yeah, me too. You cant buy grenades though...

Thats the publish date pulled by google. but yeah a computer error. I found Sandy Hook shooting articles from September. thats one clumsy conspiracy

I'm pretty libertarian, but I'm actually okay with this. I mean, a stray bullet can kill someone. A stray 40mm grenade can kill anyone within a 5-meter radius.

What were the executive orders about? gun control?

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 16, 2013 10:58:43 AM PST
Yup. It's like these conspiracy-makers are so evil and brilliant and this is how they mess up?

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013/01/16/list-executive-actions-obama-plans-to-take-as-part-anti-gun-violence-plan/

The following is a list, provided by the White House, of executive actions President Obama plans to take to address gun violence.

1. Issue a Presidential Memorandum to require federal agencies to make relevant data available to the federal background check system.

2. Address unnecessary legal barriers, particularly relating to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, that may prevent states from making information available to the background check system.

3. Improve incentives for states to share information with the background check system.

4. Direct the Attorney General to review categories of individuals prohibited from having a gun to make sure dangerous people are not slipping through the cracks.

5. Propose rulemaking to give law enforcement the ability to run a full background check on an individual before returning a seized gun.

6. Publish a letter from ATF to federally licensed gun dealers providing guidance on how to run background checks for private sellers.

7. Launch a national safe and responsible gun ownership campaign.

8. Review safety standards for gun locks and gun safes (Consumer Product Safety Commission).

9. Issue a Presidential Memorandum to require federal law enforcement to trace guns recovered in criminal investigations.

10. Release a DOJ report analyzing information on lost and stolen guns and make it widely available to law enforcement.

11. Nominate an ATF director.

12. Provide law enforcement, first responders, and school officials with proper training for active shooter situations.

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

14. Issue a Presidential Memorandum directing the Centers for Disease Control to research the causes and prevention of gun violence.

15. Direct the Attorney General to issue a report on the availability and most effective use of new gun safety technologies and challenge the private sector to develop innovative technologies.

16. Clarify that the Affordable Care Act does not prohibit doctors asking their patients about guns in their homes.

17. Release a letter to health care providers clarifying that no federal law prohibits them from reporting threats of violence to law enforcement authorities.

18. Provide incentives for schools to hire school resource officers.

19. Develop model emergency response plans for schools, houses of worship and institutions of higher education.

20. Release a letter to state health officials clarifying the scope of mental health services that Medicaid plans must cover.

21. Finalize regulations clarifying essential health benefits and parity requirements within ACA exchanges.

22. Commit to finalizing mental health parity regulations.

23. Launch a national dialogue led by Secretaries Sebelius and Duncan on mental health.

They make pills for that too. You're supposed to call a doctor if they make you man up for more than 4 hours.

The fact that the articles are still up should be a pretty good indicator that they AREN'T part of a conspiracy.

Okay so there's some stuff about mental health in there, just no real changes. Sounds like some reminders, clarifications, and additional studies for now.

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 16, 2013 11:08:32 AM PST
I was joking.

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 16, 2013 11:09:04 AM PST
I can't see any real issue with any of these.

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 16, 2013 11:10:26 AM PST
FOGE says:
Yeah, I agree. Unless these get misused in a way that I m not really seeing, then its no big deal. I disagree with the Assault weapon ban and hi cap mag ban but at least it has to go through congress. Doing an executive order on those would have been over the line.

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 16, 2013 11:12:23 AM PST
Or the fact that they are still up is a pretty good indicator that they know removing them would make the conspiracy even more obvious.

OMG so brilliant!

The cap in mag sizes is such a ridiculous non-issue.

If you want to really save lives, try to decrease emergency response time. Those 2-3 seconds for a mag change aren't going to help anyone.

A senator on the radio this morning thought that 10 lives would be saved had the shooter at Newtown had 10 round mags. The math behind this escapes me.
