    I am adamant that my ignorant religious zealot of an employer not know about my abortion (hypothetical, I neither have an abortion or an employer) or my use of BCP so that he cant use it against me or fire me. I am adamant that no employer needs to know about their employees STD treatment, or their high blood pressure, it isn't their business, and fear of lack of privacy in the workplace could and would cause employees from getting the treatment that they need.

    I could care less if a "system" flags a crazy person/stranger to the gun shop owner and turns them down in their application process for buying a gun. Just like I would be adamant that my employer not be able to poke into my personal credit for no reason, but if I apply for a credit card, or try to run my credit card at a store and get turned down for it, I don't feel that that is an invasion of my credit privacy.

    Are you against mental health screenings, Gloria? That shocks me. I thought you blamed crazy people and drugs for the violence, I would think that this made you happy with Obama.

    Do you not think people will be less open with their doctors if they feel the doctor will report their findings to the government?

    Dr's are already mandated reporters if they think that a patient is a danger to themselves or others.

    So who determines what is crazy? Should anyone who takes a drug for depression or has in the past be denied their 2nd amendment rights? It doesn't concern you at all who would be able to see this information and what judgements would be made based on someone's medical history?

    What do you think? I am in favor of less guns out there, so what do you THINK I'm going to say?

    Who do you want to determine who is crazy? Its funny now that there is a chance to have mental health screening and a chance to have these people who are on these drugs that you were decrying kept from owning guns you are changing your tune..............funny but sadly not surprising.

    I wonder if this could include concealed weapons training for school officials?

    12. Provide law enforcement, first responders, and school officials with proper training for active shooter situations.

    This school in Ohio just voted to arm their janitors, maybe they can use the money from this executive order to train them.

    You do understand that a background check is not going to stop a crazy person from buying a gun if they want one right? It only affects whether they buy it from a gun dealer or a drug dealer.

    Right, back to the "why bother to have any laws" argument. Gotcha. Why bother to have drug laws, or traffic laws, either? Yawn.

    Ya I'm thinking that we should check people when they go to buy a car and if any of them joined AA they shouldn't be able to buy a car because they might drive drunk.

    Also it's possible that someone might yell "fire" in a crowded theater, so we are going to gag everyone as they go into the theater to make sure that doesn't happen.

    Afer all we need to stop crimes before they happen right?

    Its the people who are going to AA who should be able to buy cars, not the ones going to bars every weekend, I would think. Either way, these are not compelling arguments to me, these are silly. As is the idea that a kid like Adam Lanza is just going to trot down to to the local drug dealer and buy himself a semi automatic rifle. The kid was socially inept and a total frightened weirdo and lived in a rich, well off town where the local drug lords didn't exactly hang out on every corner with a sign up for little white boys to come buy guns. Do you really think that "buying high powered rifles" from ones local drug dealer is so easy to do? I don't.
