    Yes, I guess we do have to pass the bill, to find out what’s in it! (Pelosi)

  4. When you get 3 minutes between introduction and votes these days in the Senate, who has time for reading? I wouldn’t blame Rand for just playing Angry Birds and voting present all the time…

  5. Laws, schmalls, when it comes to Obama he doesn’t need any congress, and he will just write his own law when it comes to gun control.

    I do wonder how many democratic congressmen realized they were approving that amendment to the bill when they voted for it.

  6. @Just Me
    Likely as many as will realize the repeal of that will be hidden in another bill.

  8. They will just amend Senate amendment 3276, part c. to read that the government cannot collect “any information relating to the lawful ownership or possession of a firearm or ammunition ….. of any person who shall have been conceived and born on the planet Pluto.”

    Clipboard: Affordable Care Act limits collection of gun information from patients

    The National Rifle Association successfully lobbied for the national health care law signed by President Obama in 2010 to include provisions restricting the ability of doctors and health plans to collect patient information about gun ownership, Peter Wallsten and Tom Hamburger of the Washington Post reported Sunday.

    Several prominent pediatricians have spoken out since the Sandy Hook shootings about how gun advocates have blocked research into firearm safety and preventing gun violence. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that doctors talk with families about safe gun storage. But, a little-noticed provision of the Affordable Care Act advocated by the NRA prohibits health care providers and insurers from requiring patients to talk about their guns.

  10. “Several prominent pediatricians have spoken out since the Sandy Hook shootings about how gun advocates have blocked research into firearm safety and preventing gun violence.”

    Please describe, in detail, how “gun advocates have blocked research into firearm safety and preventing gun violence.”

    I won’t hold my breath.

  11. The amendment does NOT exclusively state that never can there be established a national registry of gun owners, only that gun owners who utilize Obamacare are not required to disclose their gun ownership while under physician care. And if they do disclose voluntarily that information, that info cannot be obtained by any agency of the government for any such databases. Again, it does not state that a registry can never be established. Of course it can, and it eventually will. And that is not breaking the law nor infringing on Amendment 2.

  12. LOLOLOLOLOLOL Oh, crap, the worm turns. LOLOL

    This is what happens when our out-maneuvered and out-negotiated representatives let industry lobbyists use their corporate lawyers to write legislation that binds an entire nation.

    One wouldn’t think our legislators should be legally required to read every single word of a bill before voting, but apparently it should be written down, funded, with penalties. Yeah, riiiiiiight, like that’ll ever happen.

    It all feels so hopeless anymore.

  13. What the heck is the “powerful gun lobby”? I assume they’re referring to the NRA and like-minded groups funded by voluntary memberships purchased by individuals – you know, citizens.

    I suppose the proles shouldn’t have a voice in these issues. A few days ago, I commented to someone that this wasn’t actually about gun control… the left has no problem with guns in the hands of its enforcers. The gun control debate is a proxy war between the unwashed masses and our so-called betters.

    John Derbyshire states the case far better than I do:
