Senate Democrats want Crazies with Guns out in the Street

Senate Democrats want Crazies with Guns out in the Street.

[Also posted at the Notes on Liberty consortium, show the traffic love and read it over there if you like.]

You may have heard or read somewhere that there is a Senate amendment to ObamaCare that prohibits the government from registering guns and ammunition.

Well, the amendment (3276, Sec. 2716) is real, but what it says, as any fact-checking site worth its salt will tell you, is slightly different. It just says that certain other provisions in ObamaCare shall not be construed as the authority to do this. It is not an actual ban on doing it.

Ironically, all the liberals whining about guns and mental health and how Republicans hate sick people and want the insane to run through the streets heavily armed is turned upon its head. What you have is a Democratic bill that draws the line between doctors/insurance agents helping their patients/customers and doctors/insurance agents snitching on their patients/customers.

I guess the Democrats hate sick people and want the insane to run through the streets heavily armed too. I just knew there was not a dime’s worth of difference between the major parties.

  1. I do think background record checks undoubtedly are a requirement
    in today’s times and ought to be considered a typical action to take.

    • But what is their net effect? Do they prevent/deter crime? Do they needlessly hassle law abiders? Can they lead to something else? If all of the above, which one(s) more so? And is (are) that (those) really the desired or intended effect(s)?

Any thoughts?
