Gun Owners of America

Washington, DC --(Ammoland.com)-  Led by feckless chief Justice John Roberts, the U.S. Supreme Court today upheld the ObamaCare law by a 5-to-4 decision, with Roberts voting with liberals Breyer, Ginsburg, Sotomayor and Kagan.

While the decision means many harmful things for the American public, the Second Amendment community remains greatly affected,
[GOA's John Velleco was at the U.S. Supreme Court today to speak with media about how the ObamaCare decision negatively impacts gun owners.] as the law requires Americans’ medical information to be culled and entered into a national database.

Centralizing these medical records will allow the FBI to troll a list of Americans for ailments such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) to deny them their gun rights, in the same way that the Veterans Administration has already denied more than 150,000 veterans their right to bear arms.

GOA's John Velleco

GOA’s John Velleco was at the U.S. Supreme Court today to speak with media about how the ObamaCare decision negatively impacts gun owners.

Ironically, the Boston Globe last week reported how snarky liberals have been shocked to learn that hundreds of pages of their most intimate psychiatric notes have been posted into the database — available for reading by hundreds (perhaps thousands) of strangers who work for their provider.

Now, their most embarrassing recollections are semi-public knowledge, and this was done knowingly and unapologetically by the people to whom they were spilling their confidences. Their privacy is gone, and there is nothing they can do about it.

This is the danger that gun owners face — the sharing of medical information (like PTSD) that can be used in the future to deny them their right to purchase a firearm.

As for the ObamaCare decision itself, the Supreme Court ruled today that the Individual Mandate (requiring all Americans to purchase health insurance) is constitutional under Congress’ taxing power.

Thus, the government can force us to buy broccoli — or anything else – by simply imposing an enormous “tax penalty” for failing to do what the government orders us to do. There is NOTHING the government can’t now do as part of its taxing power.

Incidentally, ObamaCare was passed amid vigorous denunciations that Congress was imposing an enormous tax on the American people — and on the middle and lower classes. Thus, by allowing the Obama administration to now argue that it “fooled us,” the Court becomes a co-conspirator in Obama’s fraud.

The culprits? Well, certainly the tepid, political-wind-monitoring Roberts, who has sold himself to receive favorable media coverage by the liberal left and to get invited to the swanky parties in our nation’s capital. Ironically, the Senate almost did away with the Senate filibuster in order to secure Robert’s confirmation to the Court.

If there is a silver lining to this decision, it is that the Court ruled that the Individual Mandate CANNOT be justified under the Commerce Clause of the U.S. Constitution. This is good news for gun owners, as this text has been illegitimately expanded over the years to justify all kinds of unconstitutional laws – including gun control.

Americans now know what we need to do: We need to repeal the Individual Mandate through a legislative rider (or amendment) to the must-pass Continuing Resolution, which Congress will take up around September 30. And perhaps, the ultimate way to get rid of ObamaCare is to get rid of Obama.

In the process, we will need to put a constitutional majority in control of the Senate and consolidate and even expand the anti-ObamaCare majority in the House.

But the first line of defense is to force a vote on must-pass legislation to repeal or “defund” the mandate. You can expect Gun Owners of America to be at the epicenter of this battle. So please stay tuned for updates!

      My primary concern is that they will attempt back door gun regulation thru the health care industry. Perhaps insurance penalties if guns are in the home. The NIH has tried something similar, I believe.

      This article was brilliant. I think it’s pretty fair to assume the US is heading for dictatorship.

      This directlly has to do with me, I have PTSD, but I don’t want to run around and kill people. To take away my guns for a war I fought 45 years ago is the most stupid reason i’ve ever heard. The 2nd amendment says all law abiding citzens can own a gun. Does this mean that most soldiers who served their country in a combat zone, are now crazy, and can’t be trusted? NO! It means that they fear that we would be part of that well formed milisha, if the government takes awat our constitutional right. We are a scattered group, but would band together as brothers again, if the government takes away, what we fought for, FREEDOM! I erge my brothers in arms to bury your guns in burial tubes as I have done. Get large PVE TUBES, END CAPS, AND SCREW CAPS FROM HOME DEPOT, AND MAKE YOU OWN. I would sugest not to bury them on your own property, and to put ammo with them. Even if your not an ex G.I., the government has their sights on you too.

      Obamacare is a BACK-DOOR GUN REGISTRY. It puts gun ownership for all at risk, not just those with PTSD, because it puts the 2nd and 4th Amendments at risk. A court in Florida just ruled that doctors can ask patients if they have guns in the home and refuse to see them if the patient refuses to answer. Through the funding for electronic records that Obamacare includes, doctors are incentivised to ask this question. Then, along with your other personal information, gun ownership will be included in your electronic health record.
