99. There would have to be a change in Federal HIPPA regulations in
order to provide sensitive medical information to national databases. That is a way you could start. You would need to contact your Congressional representatives and also start a groundswell in the general public to do this. I've worked for physicians and I know how private people are about their health information.
That would be opening the 'right-to-privacy' door affecting all of us as well.
There is nothing to avoid someone from having fake I.D.'s made up and giving false information in order to purchase guns - unless we are all fingerprinted at our healthcare provider's offices and have that information in a national database? This may have us move another step dangerously close to the idea of the National Identity Chip being implanted in each of us so that the Government can track our comings' and goings'. Where does it end? I wish everything were that easy.
