PHOENIX, AZ –-(Ammoland.com)- The lamestream media told you:
92% of the public supports universal background checks. 92% of the public supports universal background checks. 92% of the public supports universal background checks. 92% of the public supports universal background checks. 92% of the public supports universal background checks.
We have not reported on the contents of the bill, despite its amazing acceptance level.
The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that: It’s a pelosi! People support it without knowing what’s in it!
The gun-owner registration bill “92% of the public supports” leaves out guns in hospitals and any… “health insurance entity.” ObamaCare is a health-insurance entity.
It’s amazing what you can learn by reviewing the bills our leaders propose. Alert reader C.D. Tavares spotted an error in Page Nine No. 133, which turns out to be a major element of this breaking story.
Here’s the relevant statute language from
the proposed Manchin-Toomey amendment,
the gun-registration bill being sold to the public
as a wildly supported (but repeatedly defeated)
background-check bill —
(m) The Attorney General may not consolidate or centralize the records of the —
(2) possession or ownership of a firearm, maintained by any medical or health insurance entity.
[Note that the AG, or anyone, is not prevented from recording, storing, collating, compiling, distributing, securing, retrieving, integrating, merging, using or backing up these (or, elsewhere in the bill) all other gun records on you forever; there is no audit trail or punishment for violations; and anyone except the AG could “consolidate or centralize” these or any other firearms records under this “ban.” It’s preposterous, a farce.]
In my Page Nine review last issue, I remarked about that last line in the section:
“And what’s that bit at the end that says medical- and health-insurance-company owned guns are exempt.”
Had I added “…from the paperwork rules,” C.D. noted, it would have made the line more accurate, or at least more clear. But that got me thinking.
The point is this, and it’s never been made before as far as I’m aware. What exactly is a “medical or health-insurance entity” and what are those places doing with all these guns? That’s an anti-gunny-type question to be sure, but surely valid here. And why are they exempted?
This is for people working in ObamaCare — a health-insurance entity. Who are these people? How many of them are out there, exempt? Can we the people get equal treatment under the law? Is this what 92% of the public supports? Or has the media been feeding you nonsense straight from the anti-rights advocates, without a single hint of skepticism or research on their part?
The AG (but no one else in this bill) is also banned from “consolidating or centralizing” records about:
“(1) acquisition or disposition of firearms, or any portion thereof, maintained by —
(A) a person with a valid, current license under this chapter;”
That’s FFLs, people in the gun business. The various dealer types are exempt, because they’re already well papered. For them, this would just be redundant.
The antis will look you right in the eye and lie:
Read the original article, which became the lead story in The Daily Caller —
[Note that the AG, or anyone, is not prevented from recording, storing, collating, compiling, distributing, securing, retrieving, integrating, merging, using or backing up its gun records on you forever, there is no audit trail, and anyone except the AG could “consolidate or centralize” these or any other firearms records under this “ban”. It is preposterous, a farce.]
This is why anyone with a grain of knowledge understands it’s not about background checks. It’s about gun registration by the federal government. It’s in black and white. The media is lying to you.
