[snip] Have a conceal-carry license in Missouri? Chances are, the feds now know who you are. At least 185,000 people were affected after the full list of conceal-carry owners was turned over the federal authorities twice.
Apparently from what I understand, they wanted to match up anyone who had a mental diagnosis or disability with also having a concealed carry license, the Columbia Daily Tribune reports Republican state Sen. Kurt Schaefer as saying. What I am told is there is no written request for that information.
I want to applaud the actions of the clerk!
Clerk Jacobs has established a solid set of evidence and testimony that will make the litigation against the State very hard for them to support.
I think that by pointing to the Governor and the Legislature on a radio program he has provided those who didn't want to see a closed door piece of legislation rammed through the State's legislative body by the governor with lots of political ambition.
As such I would wager that the Clerk Jacobs is not on a variety of Democratic party shit-lists.
I think he likely has done all the people of NY a favor and that he has potentially attempted to save the bacon of his County from litigation and further embarrassment.
It will be interesting if other false 2nd amendment affronts keep happening.
Thanks for the link.
When I first read of this a couple days ago, the story said there were four groups of people specifically empowered to release information (violate HIPAA) about psychiatric care to the authorities: Psychiatrists, Psychologists, Registered Nurses and Social Workers. I suspected immediately the RN in the office of the Doc who prescribed the antidepressant a year previous. Nothing reported has changed my humble opinion on the matter. The busybody RN did it.
Lewis’ lawyer understands the nub of the problem here, and that’s the violation of HIPAA outlined in the law. I do have a bit of a problem with the attorney advising his client to turn over the weapons while the court battle was going on. I would have found another way to get them out of the equation.
Somebody *is* going to get the carp sued out of them. Let’s see who.
Actions speak louder than words.
nurse... interesting. As is the list of empowered releasers. Iow HIPAA is obviously worthless.
Pah on the bunch of them.
Apparently this provision supersedes due process and it's not necessary to have a court adjudicate someone mentally incompetent in order to take their guns. The Toomey-Manchin compromise does pretty much the same thing.
--- Adolf Hitler (1889-1945), April 11, 1942, quoted in Hitlers Tischegesprache Im Fuhrerhauptquartier 1941-1942.
Our Forefathers knew what the hell they were doing by making sure the Right to Bear Arms was enshrined in the Bill of Rights.
Which explains why Hitler never allowed Poles to be guards at the death camps....Give a Pole a rifle and he’ll shoot the German right away.
And again...(I just sent it to everyone in my email address book, too)
This year will go down in history for the first time a civilized nation has full gun registration. Our streets will be safer, our police more efficient, and the world will follow our lead into the future.

According to a link upthread, you just sent a lie to your address book.
Thanks for the heads up.
Eh. It happens. Details. It’s still the truth that Hitler went for the guns first. The gun-grabbers want to return us to Nazi Germany.
“The gun-grabbers want to return us to Nazi Germany.”
Before it’s over, Nazi Germany might seem like Mecca.
So, the clerk is saying he gave the right name to the state police but the state police got the name wrong. First of all, why is the clerk calling the state police? Second, why does the clerk know anyone’s mental health treatment? Third, did the state police ever go see the other guy?
Wait. That wasn’t a quote from The Teleprompter?
It would take 185,000 HIPAA violations to do that.
