"There were people who were responding and were actually shooting back at Whitman, and in fact after people starting shooting back, ... to my knowledge nobody else was killed after that because it was very difficult for Whitman to get a shot off. He had to start shooting through peep holes." - GOA's Executive Director Erich Pratt

Dear Senator:

On behalf of over 300,000 law-abiding American gun owners, I am writing to ask you to vote against cloture on the motion to proceed to health care. 

As a result of the mandates in the legislation, this bill will most likely dump Americans’ gun-related health data into a government database that was created in section 13001 of the stimulus bill.  This includes any firearms-related information your doctor has gleaned . . . or any determination of PTSD, or something similar, that can preclude you from owning firearms.

Moreover, the special “wellness and prevention” programs (inserted by Section 1001 of the bill as part of a new Section 2717 in the Public Health Services Act) would allow the government to offer lower premiums to employers who bribe their employees to live healthier lifestyles -- and nothing within the bill would prohibit rabidly anti-gun HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius from decreeing that “no guns” is somehow healthier.

Again, I urge you to vote NO on the anti-gun ObamaCare.  GOA will score a vote for cloture and for final passage as anti-gun actions.

Sincerely,
Larry Pratt
Executive Director
