Thank Goodness for Obamacare: Hidden Amendment Prevents Gun and Ammo Registry

• Independent Journal Review

That’s right. It was put into the bill by Senator Harry Reid — in order to keep the NRA out of the Obamacare fight. Well, thank you Harry Reid?

The Nevada senator, after all, is a fan of guns and firearms, believing them to be as American as baseball or football. (Football without suspected black conservative quarterbacks who play injured in big games, that is.) picked up on the story (which IJReview first learned of via The Right Scoop):

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 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.”

So, even CNN has recognized the provision in the otherwise monstrous law. And now that the Republican Party has control of the House… well, sort of… there is no good reason for any of Feinstein’s gun laws to sail through Congress.

Sorry, folks, but actually reading through that part of the Abominable Act, the restrictions ONLY apply to the Department of Health and Human Services and medical care providers - nothing to prevent DOJ or EPA or DHS or DoD from doing it. And of course, it could be amended in a heartbeat to let the new "Surgeon General's Corps of Health Protection Enforcers" do it instead - or as well.

Think that will stop them?  You don't think there is already a national gun registry?   (Form 4473, scanned in at every BATF visit, on the list with every FBI background waiting period call in)
