Here's The List.... I Mean "Photo Op"

Is it just me or is this list "mostly" full of hot air?
With words like... improve incentive, propose, review, clarify, publish a letter, launch a campaign, release a report, direct someone to issue a report, and the ever popular "may"... Seems to me this is mostly about "looking good" in the eyes of his followers.

Or are some of these things really cause for concern??
Please tell me what you think....

List of the 23 Executive Orders is as follows:

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 rule making 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.

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.

Number 1: just freed up ALL federal agencies (including the IRS) to share data for the NICS check system currently in place.

Number 2: just trashed HIPAA’s privacy guarantees for your health information when it relates to a gun. So now, any time a doctor asks “Do you have guns” or even asks family members … all that information can be collated into the NICS system as well. Of course all I or my family members are going to answer if ever asked is no. The only reason a doctor would ask is if they are an anti gun activist. Unless they are asking a person with a metal health issue, and those folks will lie anyway too.

Number 4: Allows the Attorney General to add entire classes of people to the no guns categories in a form 4473. If you make it to the “No Fly” list for the TSA … kiss your ability to purchase a weapon goodbye.

Number 5: Allows for LE officers to perform theft under color of law by requiring background checks before handing your property back to you. So if you have a CCW License and the take "control" of your weapon for their safety while having official contact with you such as a traffic stop, they would not have to give it back until they have run a full background check at the station. even though OHIO laws says they have to give it back in the condition it was received once the official contact is finished.

I think it's mostly a smoke-screen so we don't focus on the debt, Benghazi, fast & furious, etc.
