Thanks to Emily Miller for giving a heads up on this one.
Dr. Vivek Hallegere Murthy (36 years old) did not answer questions about 2A head-on, but I guarantee you this guy will use Obamacare to extensively expand gun controls by using medical patient data. Remember folks talking about questions now asked by Drs in office visits - Are you depressed? Do you own guns?
My bet is that the masterminds will start using certain diagnosis codes as a starting point to cross-reference CHL permits and even gun purchases - now that the Feds new 'Consumer Protection Agency' has direct access to bank, credit card, and investment data. The Feds gave themselves the right to snoop around in any of your personal financial data, so it is off-the-shelf doable you could flag gun/ammo purchase transactions from credit card data, and mash it up against medical data, etc.
Big Brother has to raw data to snoop and this guy will trump up all sorts of barbra streisand reasons to use it. A sharp cookie - from Wiki -
