Obamacare has clause restricting the govt from collecting gun data





LINK






quote:

The nation’s top Democrat in Congress has faced scrutiny in recent weeks for his close ties with the National Rifle Association. On December 30, the Washington Post reported that Reid slipped a provision into the 2010 national health care law that restricts the government from collecting data on gun ownership.

How quickly will Reid be calling for changes to the Healthcare law?

Saw something on the news yesterday about this, a quote from his chief of staff saying the senator's "position has moved" since passage of ACA

We laugh about it, because it's something we like, but if something like this could have been slipped into the monstrosity of Obamacare how many horrible things could have been slipped in?

What happened? Obama did not read the Obamacare bill, aka, the Unaffordable Uncaring Act

THIS!!

It is also why I get tired of seeing posts about "Rep X voted AGAINST the 'Be Nice To Children and Old Ladies Bill!'...how dare hw be against that!!!!??"


It drives me nuts that you can name a bill anything, have it be mainly for something else, and THEN have little bits and pieces that are totally unrelated

Had to pass the bill to find out what was in it. This may have been the highlight of Reid's Senatorial career.

Does the clause prevent FBI or ATF from collecting health data (especially mental health/drug/alcohol issues) for use when you apply to purchase a gun requiring a background check?

I have no problem with this.

Maybe not totally relevant to this tread, but I do have problem with legislation that makes it illegal for doctors to ask, discuss and consult patients regarding guns in their homes, gun safety, etc like the bill that was passed in Florida not too long ago. I believe an injunction has been put in place banning Fla from enforcing the law, however (thank goodness).

re: Obamacare has clause restricting the govt from collecting gun data


The previous law was being abused. My wife had a minor stroke in 2009. Due to her heart condition her Doctor wanted to keep her in the Hospital for 2 days. My wife was interviewed by a Doctor who asked her about guns in the house. The result was we both had to be interviewed by a social worker.

The social worker didn't know a .22 from a 45-70. No, I didn't feel my wife's stroke would lead her to shoot me. I'm still alive....

Ok I have an obvious, but probably dumb question: Why would the NRA not want healthcare providers to do these checks?
Invasion of privacy?
