The teacher training option is cheaper and, IMHO, would be more effective. Nothing agains the RO, but he is only where he is.
Sorry, I see this different than you do.
From a White House factsheet, via The NYT, here are the 23 "executive actions" that Obama will take to reduce gun violence.
For full coverage of Obama's announcement today, see here.
There's very little in this part that will be too big or controversial. It's very small bore regulatory stuff.
For the full list of legal proposals, see here.
Today, the President is announcing that he and the Administration will:
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.

some of these seem pointless and other are over reaching IMHO.
It's little different than the might-never-issue arbitrary situations we've got in far too many states, in which showing "good and sufficient need" somehow doesn't get fulfilled when a person wants to protect life and limb. As if that's not sufficient cause. By what standard?
And that's exactly the point: it's a no-standards, no-accountability form of restriction ahead of crimes ever having occurred. Whatever happened to Due Process? We're not the nation of pre-crime; we're the nation of Liberty ... as in, give me liberty or give me death ... as in, don't tread on me. At least we were. We still can be. If only we FIGHT to the last breath to retain what's being wrested from our hands.
Already have 9 pages of that running here
sorry i looked and couldn't find it
If the store closes or stops FFL for waht ever reason then they are required to turn all federal forms into BATF.
Furthermore, Mrs. Martial Archer works in healthcare. She would like to make a few comments about those executive orders so I'm turning her loose....
(#16) "Clarify that the Affordable Care Act does not prohibit doctors asking their patients about guns in their homes". The information your doctor collects, his assessments and procedures are all broken down into codes and submitted on an insurance claim form. Even if you have no insurance, the data is still coded and transmitted. Insurance carriers like Medicare and Medicaid require certain codes on a claim before they will pay the healthcare provider. Meaning that your gun ownership status collected by the doctor could be coded and required before the doctor is paid. Also collected on that claim are mental health diagnosis and reasons for prescribing medications. The government isnít going to require you to register your gun; your doctor is going to do it for them.
(#2) Part of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) guarantees that your private healthcare information will be kept private except as necessary to get paid or to give to your next provider of care. So what are the "Unnecessary" barriers that may prevent states from making information available to the background check system? Could this mean that if you are taking anti- anxiety meds like Prozac, this shows up in your back ground check? And if so then...(#4)would you then fall into the Attorney General category of "dangerous" individuals prohibited from having a gun?
(#21) How could regulations of health benefits and parity requirements within ACA exchanges/Obama Care Health Care Exchanges, i.e. the giant database in the cloud play into this?
(#3) Improve incentives for states to share information with the background check system. Could this be accomplished by throwing more money to the states to help fund the unfunded mandates in Obama Care?
While for many, Obama's executive orders may sound "reasonable", this could potentially be the biggest intrusion of the government into your personal life!
And when did violence become a disease? (#14)
I'm late to the party here but a lot of this seems vague, as in intentionally vague. Other posters have mentioned "slippery slopes" and I think that's exactly the intent with a few, if not many, of these orders.
However, even if it did - you simply provide a copy of the form that has the approval code you and the seller wrote in when it was called in for approval. No need for a database. That's just one way of doing it.
And your comment about gun control and disease . . . yeah, asked the same question earlier. Quite ignorant, isn't it? Drives me up a wall.
