    Well you won't hear about it on FOX. How about Gun Owners of America?

    What happens with all new legislation (and now I'm thinking of socialized health care) is that it starts with a basic bill and then it's handed over to bureaucrats to make the actual rules. Think EPA, Dept of Education, etc. Those agencies have the power to fundamentally change the country.

    If the new bureaucracy for health care decides that (and they base their right to decide on the fact that they are paying the bills) a person who takes certain meds or who has ptsd or whatever is mentally unqualified to have guns, a regulation is made.

    We have four kinds of laws that pop to the top of my head. Each is equally strong and is fully law.

    1. The constitution. (ha ha)

    2. Legislation enacted by congress.

    3. Appellate/Supreme court rulings which are not overturned by new legislation. This applies at both the state and federal level.

    4. Regulations made by bureaucracies who are empowered by congress to make such regulations.

    The bureaucrats often enact the most heinous and invasive laws. They don't have to run for re-election. This is why congress likes to enact a bill and turn the details over to those agencies.

    This is why congress and Obama are so bent on fundamentally changing the health care system into a government run system instead of enacting some laws which would largely fix what's wrong with what we have.

    This is how they rule us a little more each day.

    Yes, this is a way they might try to get our guns. Gunshot wounds are SO expensive and add SO much to health care costs...
