Thanks for posting this.
Then you are not reading this with open eyes.NA_Wreckdiver said:I don't see anything objectionable.
In fact, I don't see that it changes much from the way things are currently.
(In Pennsylvania at least)
If anything, it seems to ease a few things.
My point exactly. We were "sold" on the idea of HIPPA as a privacy act. Even our spouses cannot access our medical records unless we authorize them through HIPPA but the Fed can.John S said:If you don't see a problem with the below you can't see.
SEC. 117. CLARIFICATION THAT SUBMISSION OF MENTAL HEALTH RECORDS TO THE NATIONAL INSTANT CRIMINAL BACKGROUND CHECK SYSTEM IS NOT PROHIBITED BY THE HEALTH INSURANCE PORTABILITY AND ACCOUNTABILITY ACT.
This is why I am not understanding your prior post.John S said:No Stan, the current law was not compromised by Hippa, Dr's have a legal obligation to notify authorities if a person is a danger to themselves or others,even with HIPA. It was not being done for fear of law suits. This current proposal is frightening.
Isn’t that what the current legislation, which so many appear to stand opposed to, is intended to address?Curly Maple said:I don't think people turn a blind eye to the lunitics. It's just that too many hands are tied dealing with them.
YUP!The big problem I see is in who gets to make the determination of what mentally unstable really is and at what level does it become a threat to society.
Though I agree in principle we also have to recognize that we as gun owners are not the only members of society and thus have to work to suitable compromise with the multitudes that stand opposed to our views.John S said:Dick, governmemt continues to ignor and selectively enforce the gun laws we have now, why would anyone support expanding their power over us when it is us who is supposed to have power over them and that is the main reason they gleefully rub their hands ever time there is a tradgey with firearms involved. It gives them another incremental take over of our rights. We have enough laws now, just enforce the things.
