Rand Paul bringing a pro-gun bill to senate floor

Gun Owners (of America) Prepare to Seize Senate from Harry Reid
At GOA’s request, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) has bypassed Harry Reid’s stranglehold on the Senate by bringing a pro-gun bill directly onto the Senate calendar.
The bill is H.R. 4118, and it was approved by the House of Representatives on Wednesday by a 250-160 vote. (See the vote here, with “Yea” being the pro-gun vote.) The bill would suspend the individual mandate of the anti-gun ObamaCare program for one year, thus protecting the privacy of gun owners.

I hate ObamaCare as much as anyone, but I'm not sure I understand how delaying the individual mandate for another year really does much to protect our right to keep and bear arms. Could you explain this a bit more?

As I recall, buried in Obama care are instructions for medical professionals to ask about firearm ownership and to counsel against such. This info gets entered into your health records and is used to build a database of firearm owners.
