Obamacare isn’t just about health insurance but allowing the Feds to intervene in nearly every area of life. And now it has been dragged into the gun control imbroglio. From the press release about the President’s Executive Orders:
PRESERVE THE RIGHTS OF DOCTORS TO PROTECT THEIR PATIENTS AND COMMUNITIES FROM GUN VIOLENCE: Doctors and other mental health professionals play an important role in protecting the safety of their patients and the broader community. The Administration is clarifying that no federal law in any way prohibits doctors or other health care providers from reporting their patients’ threats of violence to the authorities, and issuing guidance making clear that the Affordable Care Act does not prevent doctors from talking to patients about gun safety.
The evil NRA can teach gun safety quite expertly. Most doctors can’t.
