Now we know what’s in the bill – we have read it!. Mandatory electronic record keeping reduces physician productivity 20%, thereby creating an immediate doctor shortage of 20%. ObamaCare contributes nothing to improving healthcare – it’s all designed to control citizens through an inexhaustible data base and it is the IRS that will be determining your eligibility for medical care.

When a doctor asks about your guns, what can you do? Simply ask,

By what statutory authority must I disclose information about firearms?

If medical staff persist, show them the law: “‘‘SEC. 2716. PROHIBITION ON DISCRIMINATION IN FAVOR OF HIGHLY COMPENSATED INDIVIDUALS.” 

Give them a copy for their records.

Excerpt:

‘‘SEC. 2716. PROHIBITION ON DISCRIMINATION IN FAVOR OF HIGHLY COMPENSATED INDIVIDUALS.
‘‘(a) IN GENERAL.—A group health plan (other than a self-
insured plan) shall satisfy the requirements of section 105(h)(2)
of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 (relating to prohibition on
discrimination in favor of highly compensated individuals).
‘‘(b) RULES AND DEFINITIONS.—For purposes of this section—
‘‘(1) CERTAIN RULES TO APPLY.—Rules similar to the rules
contained in paragraphs (3), (4), and (8) of section 105(h) of
such Code shall apply.
‘‘(2) HIGHLY COMPENSATED INDIVIDUAL.—The term ‘highly
compensated individual’ has the meaning given such term by
section 105(h)(5) of such Code.’’.
(e) Section 2717 of the Public Health Service Act, as added
by section 1001(5) of this Act, is amended—
(1) by redesignating subsections (c) and (d) as subsections
(d) and (e), respectively; and
(2) by inserting after subsection (b), the following:
‘‘(c) PROTECTION OF SECOND AMENDMENT GUN RIGHTS.—

information relating to—
     ‘‘(A) the presence or storage of a lawfully-possessed
firearm or ammunition in the residence or on the property
of an individual; or

H. R. 3590—767
‘‘(B) the lawful use, possession, or storage of a firearm
or ammunition by an individual.
‘‘(2) LIMITATION ON DATA COLLECTION.—None of the

‘‘(3) LIMITATION ON DATABASES OR DATA BANKS.—None of

‘‘(4) LIMITATION ON DETERMINATION OF PREMIUM RATES OR
ELIGIBILITY FOR HEALTH INSURANCE.—A premium rate may not
be increased, health insurance coverage may not be denied,
and a discount, rebate, or reward offered for participation in
a wellness program may not be reduced or withheld under
any health benefit plan issued pursuant to or in accordance
with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act or an
amendment made by that Act on the basis of, or on reliance
upon—
‘‘(A) the lawful ownership or possession of a firearm
or ammunition; or
‘‘(B) the lawful use or storage of a firearm or ammunition.
‘‘(5) LIMITATION ON DATA COLLECTION REQUIREMENTS FOR
INDIVIDUALS.—No individual shall be required to disclose any

the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act or an amendment made by that Act relating to—
‘‘(A) the lawful ownership or possession of a firearm
or ammunition; or
‘‘(B) the lawful use, possession, or storage of a firearm
or ammunition.’’.

Executive orders are unenforceable – unlawful – when contrary to specific legislation. In other words, any executive order from the Dictator-in-Chief requiring disclosure of personal firearm or ammunition ownership is an unlawful order. KNOW THE LAW! DEMAND MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS FOLLOW THE LAW!

Action

  1. Read the law – pages 766 and 767. Become familiar with it.
  2. Have with you a copy of the law (pages 766 and 767) before entering the examination room.
  3. When asked about firearms, guns or ammo, ask, “By what statutory authority must I provide this information?
  4. Medical personnel will tell you they are required by the president’s executive order to ask this information.
  5. Explain to the questioner that executive orders do not trump the law passed by Congress and ruled constitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court. The law is, in fact, the supreme law of the land.
  6. Give the questioner a copy of this excerpt from the law – Section 2716.
  7. Stand firm, be polite and don’t be intimidated. If the questioner threatens to deny services, ask for the names and addresses of principles. There are plenty of hungry, junk-yard-dog trial lawyers around looking for an opportunity to make a buck and their services won’t cost you a dime – the get paid with a percentage of recovery.

  1. Refusal to answer may be construed maliciously by the government. Therefore, while I don’t condone giving untrue answers. You are NOT under oath to your doctor. Answer him NO.

    1. By no means do I encourage anyone to refuse to answer. Put the system on the defensive side of things. By asking the question and providing the answer, you help medical professionals, your friends, neighbors and others with good information. By no means should you give untrue answers and neither are you obligated to answer the questions until after they answer yours.
