Why you ask? Because while the rest of you are swapping recipes for hemlattes and cyanide souffles and amanitatinis and wondering what to wear to your first Death Panel party (black is classic but a tad cliché), some of us have to read this big boy.
As a result, some of us are wondering WTF is wrong with this country [PPACA p. 2037 – 2040]:
‘‘(c) PROTECTION OF SECOND AMENDMENT GUN RIGHTS.—
‘‘(1) WELLNESS AND PREVENTION PROGRAMS.—A wellness and health promotion activity implemented under subsection (a)(1)(D) may not require the disclosure or collection of any 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
‘‘(B) the lawful use, possession, or storage of a firearm or ammunition by an individual.
Yes, for reasons I’ve not bothered to research (although I could make an edumacated guess), approximately three pages of PPACA are devoted to reassuring ReaLAMEricans that under no circumstances will any Health Nazis try to count, fondle, fold, spindle or mutilate a man’s precious private guns.
I’ve yet to find the pages devoted to assuring ReaLAMEricans that Health Nazis won’t make them gay marry box turtles or burn their Bibles or stick beans up their nose, but you know what? I won’t be surprised if it it’s in there.
