I'm going to send you some Obama knee pads. I know for a fact with your posting history had GW Bush done this same thing then you'd be frothing at both ends about it screaming about privacy issues.<quoted text>
Please substantiate your claims about what Obama wants to do. My reading is that there is no new mandate, however once things (such as ajudication) are entered into the public record, he is working with various agencies to make certain that those who are responsible for background checks have access to that information. Ohio went through this not to long ago in terms of teacher licensing by ensuring that school districts, county and state agencies were all communicating information as needed to keep folks who are convicted of things like child abuse out of the classroom. Didn't create any new information, simply smoothed reporting.
As far as a professional having credible information that a patient/client intends to commit an illegal act (particularly murder), I believe that they have been for some time culpable if they do not make a report of some kind to authorities. This was brought up in Aurora where the killer sent his counselor a journal that outlined his plans. Had the counselor opened and seen this, and not involved authorities, I believe that they would have been in trouble of some kind.
As usual though you spin things.
And oh yes blame the doctors, blame the guns, blame the NRA, but for fuck sake don't blame the individual or their parents.
