WEIRD: Obamacare prohibits feds from collecting any info on lawful gun owners – thanks to Harry Reid

The Right Scoop

 

This is an oddball post if I’ve ever seen one. Before final passage of the bill, Harry Reid managed to slip into Obamacare protection for gun owners that prevents the government from collecting any information relating to “lawful ownership or possession of a firearm or ammunition“. This was added, according to CNN, as a “relatively benign way to make sure the National Rifle Association didn’t get involved with this.”

But CNN also points out that Harry Reid was singing a different tune back in 2010 as he was trying to court 2nd amendment voters in his state for his upcoming reelection – even inviting NRA’s Wayne LaPierre to speak at a gun range in his state. And true to form after the Aurora, Colorado movie theater massacre 2012, Reid wasn’t interested in the slightest about changing gun laws, saying “with the schedule that we have, we’re not going to get into a debate on gun control.” This was after he had won his 2010 reelection, of course, but in the midst of a heated presidential race.

So how does Reid explain his change of opinion on gun control now? According to his staff his opinion on gun control is evolving: “The Senate majority leader’s views on gun control are changing. He’s in a different place than he was in 2010.”

Yeah, right. Watch the full report HERE

    “I was for gun control before I was against it.”

    Using a variation of that quote on any given liberal is like shooting fish in a barrel.

    democrats and republicans will say anything during an election with no intention of being restrained by what they said or promised.

    the constitutionalist politicians should adopt the same practice. promise the stupid electorate what they want to hear to the extreme and then do what is constitutionaly correct once in office.

    Reid’s a two faced, criminal piece of crap. A true representative of todays Democrat. The only reason he snuck that in (and sneak it in he did) was to get the NRA off his case in a tight election. That and the fraud that was pulled ensured another six years of Harry Reid’s enrichment at the public’s expense.

    Harry won’t run again in 4 years … if the Americans win, he’ll be hanged … it the Americans lose, he’ll be “Senate Majority Leader for Life.”

    Nope, I predict Harry will stand his ground on gun control.

    And with Boehner pro gun as well, Obama will never get gun control through congress.

    He’s in a differant place now?

    He’s in a differant place, time, world, and dimension whenever he spews his thoughts outward.

    Its too bad he’s exempt from Obamacare, because I’d like to have whatever drugs hes’ on.
