    Provision in ACA is sure to come back to haunt Sen Reid in gun law debate.

    CNN's Jim Acosta reports on a little-known measure in the 2010 Affordable Care Act that restricts doctors from collecting data about their patients’ gun use. The provision is entitled "Protection of Second Amendment Rights" and the language was pushed by the National Rifle Association.

    It was Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid who included it in the health care bill. One Democratic source says it was a way to appease the powerful gun lobby and was seen as a "benign way to make sure the NRA didn't get involved."

    Reid has a history of supporting second amendment rights and courting gun owners in his home state, Nevada. The Senator's staff told Acosta that his views on gun control are changing and differ from his beliefs when the legislation was passed.

    Was this the section that got all the righties concerned with the Government dictating to doctors what they could and could not do with their patients?

    Several states have this on their books - Florida, for one - due to heavy lobbying by the NRA.

    But yeah, Reid's on the hook for this one, too.

    I bet Mitt would have kept that part.
