Executive Actions that cause concern

Here are several of the "Executive Actions" that may be a cause for concern that I received from the CCRKBA:


1. 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. -

This would make everyone's medical records available for the background check system. They could say if you are taking a certain type of medicine you are not able to purchase a gun.

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

Could this be incentives or penalties for states that don't cooperate?

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

The NRA, hunter safety courses, and concealed weapons classes have been teaching this for decades.

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

This executive action violates a current law against that says doctors may not ask their patients about guns.

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

This would be violating existing laws of doctor-patient confidentiality

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

Give teachers the opportunity to volunteer to protect their schools through concealed carry permits. Criminals know schools are gun free zones.

I think the last one could be a good order if it will make schools not a gun free zone.
