Ted Kennedy Bill Could Send Your Gun Info Into A Massive Federal 

Database 
– And you could be forced to spend $13,000 of your own money toward 
this effort!

At long last, Teddy Kennedy has partially revealed the health care 
system he wants to foist on the whole country — and it isn’t pretty. 

It won’t be pretty for your pocket book… OR FOR YOUR GUN RIGHTS! 

But first, let us explain what TeddyCare is all about. 

At the center of the plan is what’s called a “universal 
mandate.” What 
this means is that you — and virtually everyone in the country — will 
have to buy as much health insurance as the government demands, and that 
insurance plan will actually have to be approved by the government. 

If you work for a small business, the business will buy the insurance on 
your behalf. But you may be saddled with an enormous part of the cost. 
And, if the employer’s contribution is too large, you will be fired. 

If you fail to buy TeddyCare, as the government orders you to do, the 
IRS will fine you, garnish your wages, put a lien on your house, and, 
ultimately, put you in prison. 

How much will you have to spend on your TeddyCare insurance? Teddy’s not 
saying. 

The portion of your paycheck that will have to be forked over to Teddy’s 
latest social experiment will be revealed ONLY AFTER THE MASSIVE HEALTH 
CARE BILL IS SIGNED INTO LAW. 

This should set off alarm bells in your brain, because, for instance, 
the average family policy is currently $12,700.  “So,” 
proclaims Teddy, 
“everyone’s going to get a subsidy to pay for this.”  There’s 
going to 
be a “chicken in every pot,” and no one’s going to have to 
pay for it. 

Yeah, right. If you’re a welfare mother, the government will pay for 
your TeddyCare, and it would pay for it — the first time — by taxing 
employer-provided health benefits of working Americans. But if you a 
“working Joe” your Kennedy-subsidy will be a microscopic 
fraction of the 
cost of your mandated TeddyCare insurance policy. 

Okay, all of this sounds ominous… but why is this a gun issue? 

The answer is that TeddyCare will allow radical left Health and Human 
Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to determine all of the fine print 
in every TeddyCare policy — which you will be required to buy under 
penalty of imprisonment. 

Currently, as a result of the stimulus bill and a whole lot of other 
factors, the government is rapidly moving in the direction of 
computerizing all of your most confidential medical records and putting 
them into a federal database. 

So remember when your son was asked by his pediatrician about your gun 
collection? That would be in the federal database. 

Or remember when your wife told her gynecologist that she had regularly 
smoked marijuana ten years ago — thereby potentially barring both her 
and you from ever owning a gun again? That would be in the database. 

Or if a military veteran complains to his psychiatrist that he’s had 
emotional stress since coming back to the States, that would be in the 
database. 

Or remember when gramps was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, thereby making 
him a “mental defective” who would have to relinquish his 
life-long gun 
collection? That’s in there too. 

And, while we are dangerously close to allowing BATFE to troll all of 
that information, TeddyCare would allow Sebelius to put EVERYONE’S 
private data in a database with a stroke of a pen. 

When we say “everyone,” we don’t mean quite everyone. 

Teddy has conveniently excluded Washington bureaucrats from his 
TeddyCare mandate. 

Also, Teddy and his friends in the media don’t want you to hear about 
the details until after the bill is passed. That’s why they’re trying to 
slam it through within the next month and a half before anyone’s had a 
chance to read or debate it. 

In fact, the TeddyCare proposal is currently circulating around Capitol 
Hill without even a bill number. 

ACTION:  Urge your two U.S. Senators to oppose Sen. Ted Kennedy’s 
mandate that will result in the registration of all your gun 
information. 

Please forward this email to your friends and family and urge them to 
contact their Senators as well. 

You can go to the Gun Owners Legislative Action Center at

pre-written e-mail message below. 


—– Pre-written letter —– 

Dear Senator: 

At long last, Teddy Kennedy has partially revealed the health care 
system he wants to foist on the whole country — and it isn’t pretty. 

At the center of the TeddyCare plan is what’s called a “universal 
mandate.” What this means is that I — and virtually everyone in the 
country — will have to buy as much health insurance as the government 
demands, and that insurance plan will actually have to be approved by 
the government. 

But this is not only an issue of individual freedom; it is a gun issue. 

This is because Teddycare will allow radical left Health and Human 
Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to determine all of the fine print 
in every Teddycare policy — which Americans will be required to buy 
under penalty of imprisonment. 

Currently, as a result of the stimulus bill and a whole lot of other 
factors, the government is rapidly moving in the direction of 
computerizing all of our most confidential medical records and putting 
them into a federal database. 

So if a kid is asked by his pediatrician about his dad’s gun collection, 
that would be in the federal database. 

Or if a wife told her gynecologist that she had regularly smoked 
marijuana ten years ago — thereby potentially barring both her and her 
husband from ever owning a gun again, that would be in the database. 

Or if a military veteran complains to his psychiatrist that he’s had 
emotional stress since coming back from Iraq or Afghanistan, that would 
be in the database. 

Or when gramps was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, thereby making him a 
“mental defective” who would have to relinquish his life-long gun 
collection, that would be in there too. 

And, while we are dangerously close to allowing BATFE to troll all of 
that information, TeddyCare would allow Sebelius to put EVERYONE’S 
private data in a database with a stroke of a pen. 

You cannot imagine how angry I, my family, and my neighbors are about 
this most recent fraud scheme to cheat me out of perhaps over $10,000 
for TeddyCare — and to violate my privacy in the process. 

I insist that you oppose TeddyCare — immediately and loudly. Please do 
not try to shower me with propaganda about how a mandate on how I spend 
my own money is somehow good for me. 

Sincerely, 

(Your Name)
