"The police are allegedly circumventing HIPPAA laws and going through medical records, cross-referencing them with pistol-permit holders and coordinating with Obama’s DHS. They are going back ten years to locate people who took anti-depressants or who received counseling."

Back in about 2003, Major League Baseball wanted to know how widespread performance-enhancing drugs were and they surveyed the players. A-Rod filled out the confidential survey on performance-enhancing drugs and answered the questions honestly. The government got involved and suddenly A-Rod was proven to have taken the drugs. No one cared, but someone obviously got hold of his personal medical records.
The reason I bring this up is because we will all be A-Rod now that the government has access to our health records. For gun owners, it is particularly ominous.
Recently a Mr. David Lewis of Amherst NY was ordered to turn in his guns because he takes an anti-anxiety drug. He hired a lawyer and, within three days, the police said it was all a mistake, they had the wrong guy.
I thought to myself, well, they had the wrong guy and they really went through someone else’s HIPPAA records. I wasn’t particularly relieved.
