With the full frontal assaults on our 2nd Amendment rights that we are already facing under the Obama administration, you can expect the "epidemic" of gun violence being a health care issue will be up next on the anti-gun menu.
Much like the wily cockroach that can squeeze through the smallest of openings, the anti-gun parasites will not be above trying to take away our 2nd Amendment rights through the opening created with any government take over of our health care.
As usual when it comes to being on top of any attacks on our 2A rights, the guys at Buckeye Firearms outline the scenario in how this could happen....
Buckeye Firearms Association is a single issue, non-partisan PAC. As such, the debate on healthcare reform occurring across the U.S. is not something that would be within our normal sphere of coverage. However, my good friend Chad Baus posted a story a few days ago highlighting how the Centers for Disease Control has begun researching gun violence and the impact of gun violence on healthcare costs. This immediately set off alarm bells in my head as the pieces fell into place. Why, youWe already see the "epidemic" of gun violence mantra being chirped by some big city mayors, one being Mayor Jackson of Cleveland, who has already enacted illegal gun restrictions. So this is not as far-fetched as some may think. This should also be very troubling for any supporters of our 2A rights here in Cuyahoga County.
Healthcare reform is a brilliant way to regulate/ban firearms without violating the Second Amendment.
Healthcare reform, which seems completely innocuous to gun rights at first blush, is a Trojan Horse. Of that, there can be no doubt. The only real question is whether our enemies will choose to use it as such. Given the string of court and legislative defeats the anti-gun groups have suffered, is there any doubt whether the Brady Bunch will pass up an opportunity to regulate firearms in this oblique manner?
Chad's article pointed to a Washington Times editorial taking the CDC to task for circumventing congressional orders to abstain from gun control "research." The original reasoning behind this "research" ban was that the CDC would be using tax dollars to advance a gun control agenda, and the taxpayers rightly put an end to these shenanigans. Now, under President Obama, the CDC is defying this ban by researching "health care costs" and how guns impact health insurance and health care services. If any reader is in doubt as to what the results of this "research" will be, you might as well stop reading now.
So, sometime in the near future, a tax-payer funded study will show that gunshot wounds take up a tremendous amount of medical resources, More...
Because combining this with the passing of Issue 6 Cuyahoga County Reform, which Jackson strongly supported, the residents have allowed a restructuring of our county government crafted and supported by the anti-gun forces in this area.
