    Personally, I don't think it's any of the medical provider's business, but I don't need the government to tell them that, I'm perfectly capable of expressing my opinions all by myself.
    TAA - my sentiments exactly. If you feel the doctor is being intrusive, don't answer. I see no need for a law actually preventing doctors from asking such questions whatsoever.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    It's pure politics....waiting periods add nothing to healthcare. Neither does a politically motivated hysteria over "assault" weapons.

    Neither of which is relevant to this case about doctors asking about guns in the home.

    Does anybody else see the possible pun in the title of this thread?

    "Show me your guns!" Lol. I know, I'm a child.

Some people seem to contend that idea as well.

    The doc can ask whatever he want's, doesn't mean I am compelled to tell him the truth. I think it is a back door resulting from this HC law from the Marxist n chief, and it is stupid. You want the doc to ask me if I own a gun? How about I tell him to go _____ himself! You did not provide a valid medical reason for the question being asked in a routine physical, you only seemed to display you lack of knowledge of depression, and mental illness.

    But let's be clear, the doc can ask what ever he wants, he may not like the answer though.

    Give me one good reason why my family practioner needs to know that info? Should I tell him what kind of golf clubs I have as well? or what kind of law mower?

    Wouldn't that be in violation of their oath that they take? Wouldn't that defeat the purpose of being a doctor to begin wtih - if someone doesn't actually want to help people then why bother going through med school to learn how ot help people.

    the only thing that's my dr's business is my health and health related issues - I don't own a firearm now, but when I did it still wasn't their business. Just the same as it's not their concern that I read books late at night or slouch while i sit at the computer.

    Actually the medical world is going in the other direction with the HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act)Privacy Rule . It has spurned a whole new business of shredding your medical records. Doctor's offices aren't even suppose to announce your last name when they call for you in the waiting room.

    You just can't let paranoia rule your life like that.

    Then:

    arresting people with unregistered firearms.

    Finally:

    Confiscation.

    Don't believe the Mayor?

    Seat belts were optional.

    Seat belts became mandatory equipment.

    Wearing seat belts became a matter for start-interlocks, and later, alarms.

    Wearing seat belts became MANDATORY for all states seeking federal hgihway funds, subject to possible tickets by state tax collectors when stopped for other reasons. (These tax collectors are called "cops" in the vernacular of the peasantry.)

    Unconstitutional seatbelt check roadblocks were implemented. Another loss of freedom.

    Finally, not wearing a seatbelt has become in itself, a ticketable offense for which any tax collector can stop a vehicle and submit a tax bill.
