Sucks for Gun Grabbers – Obamacare Amendment Forbids Gun and Ammo Registration

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 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.

    Unfortunately, the restriction bears only on authority extended by the health care act–it won’t touch anti-gun efforts unrelated to Obamacare matters. Full text of the section:

    (c) Protection of Second Amendment gun rights
    (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 Search Term End 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–

    Best Section Begin
    (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.

    With more and more incidents of shootings in public places such as schools, movie theaters and marathons, it is wise to think about a solution to prevent this from happening more!
