    House Republicans Vote to Deny Second Amendment Rights to Millions

    Last week while the NRA was spending their time and our money supporting Thad Cochran and denigrating those of us who supported Chis McDaniel, many Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives were busy passing more gun-control legislation.
    According to Dudley Brown of the National Association of Gun Rights one in three Republicans decided to vote against your rights by supporting Barack Obama’s agenda to label millions of American’s “mentally ill”. The Obama administration has been successful in denying more over 175,000 of our nations veterans their Second Amendment rights in this manner and are attempting to expand this to every American.

    The amendment provids $20 million additional dollars for the federal government to acquire as many private medical records as possible and dump them into a national database. Once these records are obtained millions of citizens will be labeled mentally ill and denied their right to possess a firearm.

    The mental illness threat is largely made up by those seeking to limit our rights and destroy the Second Amendment. In research published by The American Journal of Psychiatry, VOL. 163, No. 8, Dr. Paul S. Appelbaum found through his research that only 5% of those convicted of violent crimes were people who suffered from a mental disorder.

    Following his research, Dr. Appelbaum came to two conclusions, First, the proportion of violence that they (people with mental disorders) account for is relatively small, suggesting that the well-documented public perception of the mentally ill as dangerous persons is substantially exaggerated. Secondly, that the disproportionate attention given to their acts of violence by the media and by our elected representatives is unwarranted.

    The assault on our rights and the Second Amendment comes from many directions. The Republicans who followed the lead of the Democrats and voted for this amendment are either allies with Obama in his attempt to destroy our rights or simply not smart enough to understand the real issue. Either way, they need to be sent home.

    Here is the list provided by the National Association of Gun Rights of the Republicans who voted for this amendment:

    Greg Walden (202) 225-6730

    Doc Hastings (202) 225-5816
    Cathy McMorris Rodgers (202) 225-2006
    David Reichert (202) 225-7761
    Jaime Herrera Beutler (202) 225-3536

    I think maybe someone is afraid their psychiatric medical history will get their firearms rights pulled. No where in this cut and paste post does it state what the actual content of what was voted on is.
    Obamacare will take care of what this vote or any like it doesn't in releasing medical records so we're doomed anyway if your records show you are unfit to be around firearms. HIPPA will be null and void eventually most likely starting with the VA as that has already been happening.

    I would be more worried if they started talking about making psych. evaluations mandatory to get a firearm. That leaves a lot of room for amendments on who gives them and what criteria would be in them.

    Mental fitness tests for owning firearms is in our future. If you're see no problem being tested you must be crazy. Showing anger at govt. testing is paranoia and will be an automatic failure. a Catch 22 ain't it?

    Catch-22 is when the fact that you are applying to own a firearm is cause to determine that you are dangerously mentally ill.:rolleyes:
