GUN CONTROL: Obama administration issues two executive actions defining who can buy a gun.
The Obama administration quietly released a press statement, confirming President Obama will be signing two new executive actions defining who can buy a gun based on mental health issues.
The restrictions will try to limit who can buy a gun, based on past mental health issues. The new mental health restrictions, which are being enforced as regulations through the Department of Justice and the Department of Health and Human Services, will allow the government to get around certain privacy laws so they can access your private medical records. It also allows them to yet again sidestep congress.
One of regulations allows the feds to access your private medical records to determine your “mental stability” in relation to owing a firearm. If you are found to be mentally unstable, the Justice Department can then deny your right to own a firearm. But the problem really comes from who’s defining what “mentally unstable” actually means.
