A Secret Gun Provision Made its Way Into Obamacare Legislation

Portions of the Affordable Care Act that include mentions of firearms and the parameters through which doctors must operate in questioning patients.

A Secret Gun Provision Made its Way Into Obamacare Legislation

There’s a widely-unknown provision in the Affordable Care Act (also known as Obamacare)

A regulation that was placed deep within the bill back in 2010, among other things, bans doctors from documenting patients’ answers to questions that focus upon guns.

The Washington Post first reported on Dec. 30 about the presence of this controversial wording. Under a section with the headline “Protection of Second Amendment Gun Rights,” the NRA-advocated wording is nestled deep within the law.

The NRA’s stance that patients should not be penalized or discriminated against for owning firearms. As can be seen from the above portion of the legislation, while doctors are not banned from asking about guns, they are forbidden from documenting the information and using it for research purposes.


(If a doctor asks you if you own a gun etc, tell him or her it isn't any of their business! I did.

This must be the only part of the obamacare lie that is useful. Its interesting that “a largely overlooked but significant challenge to a movement in American medicine to treat firearms as a matter of public health.” was included in the obamacare lie.

Doctors who ask you if you own a gun should keep their mouth shut about your guns. Doctors who treat firearms as a matter of public health are the type that you don't need to be going to for treatment.

They might diagnose you as having a case of "gun-itess" for which they would also tell you there is no cure except stripping your weapons away to keep you healthy.

Ask your doctor if he owns a gun if he tells you yes, tell him the only "cure" is to buy another one or sell another gun to an individual. No paperwork involved.)
