Ha! Secret ObamaCare Provision Protects Gun Owners from the Evil Liberals Wish to Do

Harry Reid Shooting

By Gary P Jackson

Most days when I see, hear, or think of Harry Reid, I think about gallons of hot tar, truck loads of feathers, and the most productive use of such things. Today however, if he was here, I’d kiss the rotten, crooked son-of-a-bitch!

One of the reasons Reid was able to win re-election in 2010 over Tea Party favorite Sharron Angle was Reid had the powerful backing of the National Rifle Association. The video below shows Reid at the opening of a shooting range in Nevada, a range partially funded by tax payer dollars Reid earmarked.

Before the healthcare bill passed, Conservatives were up in arms because absolutely no one in Congress had read the 2800 page monstrosity in full. Nancy Pelosi infamously proclaimed: “We’ll have to pass the bill to see what’s in it!” Well, guess what is in the ObamaCare bill …. 2md Amendment protection for gun owners, that’s what!

ObamaCare prohibits the federal government from collecting firearms registration data. CNN’s Jim Acosta explains:

Though both Reid and the NRA’s LaPierre declined to comment, CNN’s Acosta reports that Reid slipped this little jewel into the ObamaCare bill in order to make the NRA “benign” during the ObamaCare debate. You known, because “conspiracy theory nuts” might have said Obama would try to grab guns someday!

BTW, as I write this, the main headline on Drudge reads [ in bold red letters] as follows:

WHITE HOUSE THREATENS ‘EXECUTIVE ORDERS’ ON GUNS

Above the headline are the following photos:

Directly from the Affordable Care Act [ObamaCare] legislation: [emphasis mine]

SEC. 2717 ø42 U.S.C. 300gg–17. ENSURING THE QUALITY OF CARE.
….
( c ) PROTECTION OF SECOND AMENDMENT GUN RIGHTS.—As
added by section 10101(e)(2)

(1) WELLNESS AND PREVENTION PROGRAMS.—A wellness and health promotion activity implemented under subsection (a)(1)(D) may not require the disclosure or collection of any information
relating to—

(A) the presence or storage of a lawfully-possessed
firearm or ammunition
in the residence or on the property of an individual; or
(B) the lawful use, possession, or storage of a firearm or ammunition by an individual.

(2) LIMITATION ON DATA COLLECTION.—None of the authorities provided to the Secretary under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act or an amendment made by that Act shall be construed to authorize or may be used for the collection of any information relating to—
(A) the lawful ownership or possession of a firearm or
ammunition;
(B) the lawful use of a firearm or ammunition; or
(C) the lawful storage of a firearm or ammunition.

(3) LIMITATION ON DATABASES OR DATA BANKS.
None of the authorities provided to the Secretary under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act or an amendment made by that Act shall be construed to authorize or may be used to maintain records of individual ownership or possession of a firearm or ammunition.

(4) LIMITATION ON DETERMINATION OF PREMIUM RATES OR
ELIGIBILITY FOR HEALTH INSURANCE.

—A premium rate may not be increased, health insurance coverage may not be denied, and a discount, rebate, or reward offered for participation in a wellness program may not be reduced or withheld under any health benefit plan issued pursuant to or in accordance with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act or an amendment

(A) the lawful ownership or possession of a firearm or
ammunition;
or
(B) the lawful use or storage of a firearm or ammunition.

(5) LIMITATION ON DATA COLLECTION REQUIREMENTS FOR
INDIVIDUALS.

—No individual shall be required to disclose any

under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act or an
amendment made by that Act relating to—

(A) the lawful ownership or possession of a firearm or
ammunition;
or
(B) the lawful use, possession, or storage of a firearm
or ammunition.

An Executive Order cannot supersede legislation, but we’ll have to watch every piece of legislation from now until Obama is out of office, and possibly beyond, because as easy as it was to hide this protection within ObamaCare, it’ll be just as easy to hide in another bill. Remember, the fiscal cliff death that just passed was around 159 pages, and no one even saw the final draft until about 3 minutes before the vote, meaning absolutely no one read the entire bill before voting, an act that should be a felony, and a jail-able offense. But I digress.
