Default Background checks and current HIPPA laws

Morning all... I watched the very interesting gun law interview on Meet the Press this morning (Bloomberg vs LaPierre) and the discussion following. There was a passing mention of HIPPA law (the privacy law which prevents medical practioneers from giving out information) with respect to background checks.

It raises and interesting question... If the mentally ill (at least those known to be mentally ill via diagnosis by a Psychologist or other MD) are protected by these HIPPA laws, how can that information be provided to DOJ's or the Fed's for use in a background check?

This was 'glossed over' on MTP....

BTW, the NRA via LaPierre ate Bloomberg for breakfast!
