Gun Control, Doctors, and The Daily Show.

A friend forwarded a Daily Show segment mocking a rule that Florida Governor Rick Scott signed in law.  The law is designed to protect the Second Amendment Right of the people to possess firearms by removing it from the list of information doctors can gather from patients. 

The jocularity included asking medical personnel if gun owners were acting paranoid and afraid of being on government lists.  I say, "Who wants to be on government list?" as government lists only help politicians and special interest groups.

While all this may seem like a minor thing on its surface, let's remember that there are many anti-gun organizations and many anti-gun political action committees (PAC's)  who support politicians who are also very anti-gun. These groups will gather information to gin up their own special brand of misinformation to prey on the concerns of all Americans in an effort to eventually remove firearms and the ability to defend themselves (ourselves) from all law abiding citizens. Well, except their own body guards (Sen. Diane Feinstein, D- CA).

The real paranoia lies with the anti-gun crowd.

Anyhow, here is the Daily Show's humorous "report".

Oh, and to Governor Rick Scott - Thank you for something that is good for Floridians and a model for other states.
