Opening Shot On ObamaCare Scheduled

The U.S. House of Representatives is scheduled to hold its first vote on repealing the anti-gun ObamaCare law this Wednesday.

Good for them!

As GOA has pointed out for more than a year, price ObamaCare will allow the Bureau of Alcohol, drug Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE) to troll the federal health records database in an effort to disarm hundreds of thousands of law-abiding Americans.

Even after the forced adoption of language to take care of SOME of the anti-gun problems with the bill, ObamaCare still does not prevent the government from using health records to place people on the FBI gun prohibition list (the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, or NICS).

But, some would protest, ObamaCare does not explicitly mention firearms or background checks.

Well, neither did ObamaCare explicitly give Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius the ability to promulgate rules to regulate insurance premiums.  But she did.

Neither did it give HHS the ability to implement the deleted “death panel” language.  But they did, until public outrage forced them to retreat.

Neither does any statutory law authorize the BATFE to use the Mexico drug cartel violence problem to require U.S. gun dealers to report the names of persons making purchases of more than one rifle.  But they have.

So the question is this: How much do you want to bet that Barack Obama, and his anti-gun appointees, will not use every tool at their disposal to go after the Second Amendment community?-[source]
