Obama’s Gun Order Allows Doctors to Turn Their Patients in to the Government

For a man who was once awarded a Nobel Peace Prize, Obama seems to be more concerned with taking away the rights of Americans than offering new ones.

The latest government power-grab begun by Obama now brings patient privacy into the crosshairs.

Delivering on its promise to deliver “common sense” gun control, the Obama administration on Monday finalized a rule that enables health care providers to report the names of mentally ill patients to an FBI firearms background check system.

The action was one of a series of steps that President Barack Obama had called for in January 2013 in the wake of the Newtown, Conn., shootings to curb gun violence, but the rule was not published until today.

While the 1993 Brady law prohibits gun ownership by individuals who have been involuntarily committed, found incompetent to stand trial or otherwise deemed by a court to be a danger to themselves or others, federal health care privacy rules prohibited doctors and other providers from sharing information without the consent of their patients.

Under the rule, which takes effect next month, for the first time health providers can disclose the information to the background check system without legal repercussions.

Apparently its not “common sense” to protect the right of privacy as it pertains to medical records. Obama — and his government — would rather collect all of the information as it can about his citizens so that he can restrict them of their constitutional rights.
