    Congress Trying to Implement the Medical Records Gun Ban
    -- Step #2 in fraudulent budget process comes to a vote on Wednesday

    Congress is moving closer to a showdown over the largest expansion of
    government in modern U.S. history -- a bill which would require
    virtually every single American to buy government-approved health
    insurance, whether they wanted it or not. And, in the process, that
    bill would feed all of your most confidential medical data into an
    enormous database, which could be used to take away your guns.

    This is a bit complicated. But here's where we are:

    Once a year, the 1974 Budget Act allows Congress to pass a bill --
    solely for the purpose of balancing the budget -- and that bill cannot
    be filibustered in the Senate. Hence, it can be passed with only fifty
    Democrat votes (plus the vice president), without any Republican
    support.

    Now, that supposed "budget-balancing bill" is called the
    "reconciliation bill" -- and it can only be created if the annual budget resolution
    mandates it.

    Three weeks ago, the Senate considered its version of the annual budget
    resolution. Gun Owners of America asked you to oppose passage of the
    Senate version of the budget resolution for two reasons:

    * First, although the Senate version of the bill did not contain
    language mandating the giant anti-gun database and the huge $10,000+
    per person government health mandate, the Pelosi-devised House version
    did.

    * Second, although Senate Budget Committee Chairman Kent Conrad (D-ND)
    protested mightily that the Senate version did not mandate the anti-gun
    database and health mandate, GOA found out that Conrad intended all
    along to capitulate in House/Senate conference to the Pelosi language.

    Now, the budget resolution has come back from conference, and guess
    what?

    Budget Chairman Conrad stabbed us in the back, just as GOA thought he
    would. His actions meant that Senators didn't have to go on record
    voting for gun control the first time around.

    The conference report gives Senate and House Republicans until September
    to cave in and agree to pass the anti-gun database and $10,000+ health
    mandate. And, if they do not, the Left Wing Democratic leadership will
    pass their own bill with 50 Senate votes -- and no Republicans.

    And, incidentally, when we say "anti-gun database," we mean that
    everything your kid told his pediatrician about whether you have a gun
    collection will be searchable by the government. And people with
    Alzheimer's, ADHD, and other disorders will begin losing their gun
    rights just as quickly as veterans -- who have seen the ramifications of
    being on a government database.

    Although the next vote on this budget resolution will not be the final
    battle in this eight-month war, GOA is asking senators and
    representatives to vote against the sleazy, corrupt budget resolution
    conference report -- scheduled for a Senate vote this Wednesday.

    Incidentally, the one thing that the federal government can do to reduce
    health costs is to remove the anti-gun federal laws which prohibit more
    Americans from using firearms to defend themselves and their families.

    ACTION:

    Contact your senators and representative. Ask them to vote against the
    "fraud scheme" which the budget resolution conference report
    has become.

    Please use the Gun Owners Legislative Action Center at
    http://www.gunowners.org/activism.htm to send your legislators the
    pre-written e-mail message below.

    You can also call them toll-free at 1-877-762-8762.

    ----- Pre-written letter -----

    Dear

    The budget resolution conference report would set the stage for
    legislation to require virtually every American to purchase
    government-approved health insurance. And it would use government
    control over health insurance to require providers to feed our most
    confidential medical data into an anti-gun government database.

    When I say "anti-gun database," I mean that everything a kid
    tells his
    pediatrician about his dad's gun collection will be searchable by the
    government. And people with Alzheimer's, ADHA, and other disorders will
    begin losing their gun rights just as quickly as veterans -- who have
    seen the ramifications of being on a government database for the last
    decade.

    The budget resolution was sold to the Senate under a lie. Senators were
    told that the Senate version contained no "reconciliation
    instructions"
    when, all along, Budget Chairman Kent Conrad intended to immediately
    capitulate in conference.

    Please show that such underhanded tactics are unacceptable in the
    Congress. Please vote against the budget resolution conference report.


    Sincerely,


    ****************************

    I sent mine, as usual, to both the Alabama and the Mississippi folks in Washington.

    Not that it is going to do any good with what ‘we’ sent to washington.
    I really hope that God damns these people that are against freedom.

    There were two alerts on that page. The other one was on Obama's illegal firearms manufacture deal with Mexico. This one could make it illegal to re-load ammo.
