Medical records are not for anyone that isnt authorized by the owner to look at. When I say owner, I mean patient. HIPAA violations cost people their jobs because our medical privacy is guaranteed by law. Being forced to give up your privacy to the Government as terms of exercising your 2A is complete BS.
The day they take the whole topic of Mental defect seriously is the day we may start to agree on terms of its official use. The same people that today say Mental Defect is the perfect reason to deny Firearms ownership are the same folks that have consistently denied treatment and closed psych centers across the nation to save money. Hell, Andy Coumo's Dad opened up the Psych centers doors and let them all walk away in NY in 1994, thats better!
Culling a single right because mental defect is suspected proves they are not trying to protect us, they just hate guns! If they are gonna take the time to deem someone unsafe, at least look at the overall picture of what is reasonable to try to prevent based on their defect, not just pick one out of the grabbag. I dont take regs serious when they state were safe because we took away a "Crazy Persons" 2A but we shouldnt worry about them driving Motor Vehicles, Working in Food preparation areas, buying a samurai sword or having a bic lighter and a gallon of gasoline on them.
Back to background checks! Why do we feel safer with them?
These folks are in charge of clearing federal and state employees before they get access to sensitive material, they and others have been prosecuted for falsifying data, docs and interviews. What makes anyone think that our Weapon BCG check system is better than the ones we use to secure our national secrets?
