HIPAA as a Hinderance to Gun Purchase Background Checks: It's been posited that the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, which is supposed to help prevent guns from being purchased by those not allowed to have them, doesn't work as well as it should because some people don't report information due to HIPAA concerns.  I don't know enough about NICS to know if that's true, but HHS wants to make sure HIPAA doesn't interfere with gun laws.  So they're asking for public comment; if you have a stake in the process or information for that can help HHS deal with the issue, please follow the directions at the link and send in your comments.
