BREITBART’S BIG GOVERNMENT

Good news — it has become known that hidden deep within the massive 2800-page bill called Obamacare there is a Senate Amendment protecting the right to keep and bear arms.

It seems that in their haste to cram socialized medicine down the throats of the American people, then-Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Barack Obama overlooked Senate amendment 3276, Sec. 2716, part c.

According to reports, that amendment says the government cannot use doctors to collect “any information relating to the lawful ownership or possession of a firearm or ammunition.”

CNN is calling it “a gift to the nation’s powerful gun lobby.”

And according to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), that’s exactly right. He says he added the provision in order to keep the NRA from getting involved in the legislative fight over Obamacare, which was so ubiquitous in 2010.

    Does it prevent government from collecting any data or only prevent government from using Doctors to collect any data regarding gun and ammunition purchases and ownership?

    Is there room to appeal the other laws on the books if this does prove to prevent government from collecting any data?

    THAT’S FINE BUT I REALLY DON’T SEE WHAT ONE HAS TO DO WITH THE OTHER.

      According to the wording I read, it says the government cannot collect any data … in which case, the government even keeping a record of who had the background checks would effectively be an unlawful act. Sadly, as we saw in NY when that information gets into the wrong hands, it can make people targets even if unintentionally.
