When we consider the left’s relentless crusade against our Second Amendment rights, we must further consider that more often than not, these efforts to curtail the right that protects all others have far-reaching constitutional and ethical consequences.
An example of this kind of effect can be seen in the left’s recent push to restrict gun sales on people on the so-called “terrorist watchlist.” While foreign nationals are already prohibited from purchasing firearms and those convicted of felonies are prohibited as well, Democrats have postured as the protectors of society by insisting that Republicans are looking to facilitate the arming of terrorists.
In reality, the argument is nothing short of a manipulation. An American citizen can be placed on the list without any semblance of due process. If a government bureaucrat says that one is a terrorist, he is a terrorist and if the Democrats had their way, that man would be denied his Second Amendment rights without any due process of the law.
But for liberals looking to score points, it is expedient to boil-down the argument to deliberately false talking points.
When President Obama unleashed his unconstitutional anti-Second Amendment edicts, not only was he violating the Second Amendment, but the Constitution’s protection of separation of powers between branches of the government.
However, according to Dr. Robert Young of Doctors for Responsible Gun Ownership, President Obama’s edicts not only violate the Constitution; they violate longstanding HIPAA practices upon which every American relies for medical privacy.
In a shocking explanation of what effect the president’s orders will have on Americans, Dr. Young explains that the government now is compelled to violate the patient privacy of hundreds of millions of Americans in the pursuit of stamping-out the Second Amendment.
Dr. Young explains below. His caution is lengthy, but is an absolute must-read for every American who has or will see a doctor and every American who has or will own a firearm. Please read below as it is invaluable information about which every American should be warned:
President Obama is now using executive actions to fill in certain “gun safety” gaps in our present hodgepodge of laws and regulations. One might wonder whether he is motivated not only by the possibility of “saving just one life” but also by the fact that most of the nation disagrees with him about the need for further gun control and about his right to rule by fiat . . .
DRGO works hard to cover the often discouraging intersection of health care and gun rights. This effort required watching in word-for-word, tear stained, excruciating detail the January 5 White House press conference and CNN’s January 7 Guns in America town hall from George Mason University.
It meant reading the President’s January 7 opinion piece in the New York Times, “Guns Are Our Shared Responsibility” and all 56 pages of the federal Department of Health and Human Services Final Rule 45 CFR Part 164, Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Privacy Rule and the National Instant Criminal…
