Strange isn’t it? I posted the intent to limit our guns the first time back exactly two years ago. Obama has never been shy at telegraphing what he has in mind regarding destroying our rights. In return, we as American voters have done our best to install a defense via the GOP. First the Tea Party develops, then we take the House, the Senate, and the moribund Grand Old Party does nothing but join the Democrats in our demise. Keep in mind, Obama said his “orders” would be coming out over the next couple of weeks. He is not done with us yet.
Recall New York takes guns away from 34,500 without due process
But this little number may be starting us on the worst of it. Why did he take so long in moving forward? That is the question.
Obama to tighten Gun Control for those who ever took an anxiety pill? January 6, 2014
We saw this freight train coming now didn’t we? So now Eric Holder and the DOJ will comb our prescription plans which they will secure from the Insurance company no doubt, and put everyone on the watch list who ever took a medication for a non physical condition. You betcha. Which is estimated to be about 25 percent of the population.
The Obama administration quietly released a press statement,
The Department of Justice is proposing to change rules for the federal background check system to clarify who under U.S. law is prohibited from possessing a firearm because of mental health problems.
…..confirming President Obama will be signing two new executive actions defining who can buy a gun based on mental health issues.
Earlier this year, the State of New York used similar mental health regulations to classify anxiety as a mental health issue. Because of that, anyone who has ever reported feeling anxious could be at risk of losing their 2nd amendment rights. In fact, there are already a number of cases making their way through the court system in New York, where people actually lost their rights because they were prescribed anti-anxiety medications.
Since almost 25% of the population now takes anti-anxiety / depression medications, almost a quarter of the country could be at risk of being labeled mentally unfit to own a firearm, if these same policies take hold at a federal level.
They’ve already started going after Vets with these regulations.
The restrictions will try to limit who can buy a gun, based on past mental health issues. The new mental health restrictions, which are being enforced as regulations through the Department of Justice and the Department of Health and Human Services, will allow the government to get around certain privacy laws so they can access your private medical records. It also allows them to yet again sidestep congress.
One of regulations allows the feds to access your private medical records to determine your “mental stability” in relation to owning a firearm. If you are found to be mentally unstable, the Justice Department can then deny your right to own a firearm. But the problem really comes from who’s defining what “mentally unstable” actually means.
