Gun (People) Control by Fiat

It’s the same, old, sad story.

The Executive cannot achieve his goals through the proper Constitutional channels, so he just dictates his desires like Caesar, and presto!

After the last couple of  (the vast majority in recent history) shootings were determined to have been caused by left-wing (sorry – not politically correct) nut jobs, mental health suddenly became the cause celebre of the Brady Bunch.

And, why not?

After all, we don’t want escaped mental patients running around, willy-nilly, purchasing fully-automatic weapons and murdering folks, as is the movies, do we?

Except, of course, that doesn’t happen in the real world.  Sick people sometimes steal semi-automatic weapons.  Or illegally convert them to full auto.  (see the word illegally – already a crime!)  And kill people.

And, there is a difference between a homicidal, padded-cell, mental patient, and YOU, asking your doctor for some medical help with your depression.

But The President and his administration don’t see it that way!  And they don’t believe in current media privacy law, either!

And, as stated earlier, they are doing an end run to bypass H.I.P.P.A.* and make anyone who was ever been depressed and sought mental health aid to be branded a prohibited person – one who may NEVER own or possess a firearm!

Write you congressman and senators, now.  The Gun Owners of America has been kind enough to provide us with a link to make it quick and easy.

  1. They’ve already done this with Vets, but nobody cared… NOW??? And OBTW, it’s HIPAA. Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996

  2. The grumbling & resistance from the vast body of The People is starting to pick up steam, and there’s going to be a push-back … hard. The only question is when. All those folks who thought that conservatives & libertarians were crying wolf are starting to realize that the warnings were true – and now that the draconian police-state direction of the federal overseers is starting to bother them, things will begin to happen.

    I know several folks here who have recently announced that they’re going out of their way to ignore every federal regulation they can think of.

    • I truly hope you are right. Most of the liberals I know have fallen silent, but haven’t yet picked up the liberty standard. Until it affects them directly, i suspect they won’t.
      I’m not commenting on ignorance of federal regulation, save I know some folks who have ignored many others for many years.
