President Barack Obama and his administration are doing everything they can to make another attempt to control ownership of guns and usurp the second amendment before he loses the Senate to the Republicans in the mid term November elections.
Believe it or not one possible back door approach to accomplish gun control and get around the second amendment is through Obamacare. Obama is currently hand picking a nominee for new surgeon general Dr. Vivek Hallegere Murthy who apparently agrees with his gun agenda.
Murthy is the president and founder of Doctors for America which reportedly started from an organization called Doctors for Obama in 2008. This group has strongly supported Medicaid expansion and the passage of Obamacare and pushed for expanding gun control laws in 2013.
It has been reported that the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee voted in favor of sending Murthy’s nomination to the Senate floor. The democratic controlled Senate could vote in favor of Murthy for surgeon general. This possibility recently raised a red flag to the National Rifle Association (NRA) and concerned American citizens.
Doctors for America successfully fought a proposed Florida law that would have prevented doctors from including in a person’s medical file whether they are a gun owner. It has been reported that Doctors for America feel guns are a public “health threat.” The group circulated a petition to pressure Congress to pass stricter gun laws.
Americans are concerned that as surgeon general, Murthy could persuade lawmakers into passing and enforcing health related gun control laws circumventing our second amendment constitutional rights. If that occurs doctors could someday face the reality of disclosing their gun owner patient names to the government. The next step could be the government dictating who the “health threats” are that own guns. They may be labeled and targeted.
If this comes to a vote in the U.S. Senate, take a close look at who voted for Murthy for surgeon general then vote that senator out of office in the 2014 or 2016 elections. They are against your individual freedoms and America.
