    Flashback: Palin Predicts Obama Admin. Using Health Care to Curb Second Amendment Rights

    On August 1, 2009--just seven months into President Barack Obama’s first term--former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin predicted Obama would attempt to leverage health care to "take away" the Second Amendment rights of Americans.

    In Obama's gun control plan, which the White House released on Wednesday, there is a section titled "Preserve The Rights of Mental Health Care Providers To Protect Their Patients and Communities From Gun Violence."

    It reads, "we should never ask doctors and other health care providers to turn a blind eye to the risks posed by guns in the wrong hands," and proposes to:

    • Clarify that no federal law prevents health care providers from warning law enforcement authorities about threats of violence: Doctors and other mental health professionals play an important role in protecting the safety of their patients and the broader community by reporting direct and credible threats of violence to the authorities. But there is public confusion about whether federal law prohibits such reports about threats of violence. The Department of Healthand Human Services is issuing a letter to health care providers clarifying that no federal law prohibitsthese reports in any way.

    • Protect the rights of health care providers to talk to their patients about gun safety: Doctors and other health care providers also need to be able to ask about firearms in their patients’ homes and safe storage of those firearms, especially if their patients show signs of certain mental illnesses or if they have a young child or mentally ill family member at home. Some have incorrectly claimed that language in the Affordable Care Act prohibits doctors from asking their patients about guns and gun safety. Medical groups also continue to fight against state laws attempting to ban doctors from asking these questions. The Administration will issue guidance clarifying that the Affordable Care Act does not prohibit or otherwise regulate communication between doctors and patients, including about firearms.

    Do not leave your kids alone with a doctor or nurse. They may be government snitches.

    It is now legal and doctor /patient privilege no longer exists.
