    No, they shouldn't just ask--they should report them to somebody. Let's create new police forces...the nutrition police, the exercise police, the _____ police. Oh, and train the kids to snitch on their parents too.

    Re: Obama Asks Doctors to Help Deal With Guns

    I'M 60 years old and never had a Dr. ask me about guns. I'd imagine no one here has either. there's people here that will say they have but i really doubt it.
    I confess, I did it, I let the dogs out.

    Do you think that if a mentally unstable person tells their doctor that they have recurring thoughts of going to shoot up a school with their rifle, that they doctor shouldn't be allowed to warn authorities?
    doctors are already required to report that

    just as I, an attorney, if i were still engaged in criminal defense work, has a duty to inform the po po if a client were to tell me "I'm going make the guy who is testifying against me next week sleep with da fishes"

    Sorry, your point is incorrect. As the study says, you are much more likely to kill yourself with a gun at home. You can keep saying otherwise, but to be honest, I don't trust you as much as a trust this study and the others that come to the same conclusion. For obvious reasons.

    If the person makes a threat against someone, then the doctor is going to be worried about that.

    If we are talking suicide, it would be stupid to worry of axes or baseball bats, and to ask about knives would be silly since the question is always yes. Everyone has some kind of knife in their home.

    The doctor isn't there to disarm the populace. You're being ignorant and fearful for no reason.

    well I can't see a problem with that. Doctors are often well placed to determine whether a person may pose a risk to themselves or others, and if they have concerns, by reporting on this may prevent deaths - especially those tragic family murder - suicides.

    The only people who would object to this kind of thing would be people who are at risk of using a weapon for that purpose

    Re: Obama Asks Doctors to Help Deal With Guns

    Fully understanding a doctor dealing with psycohological issues in a patient asking about it.

    If my doctor was asking me about it as part of a routine physical exam, or if I had a kid and he tried asking them about my gun ownership while being hcecked out for a sore throat, then I'd be declining to answer and looking for a new doctor.

    If its somehow legitimately relevant to the health of a patient, and a patient with suidical tendencies or other psychological problems it may very well be, then I fully understand and support a doctor asking about it. But that's about the extent doctors should be expected or pushed to talk about or inquire about "gun violence".

    The socialist knew what they were doing... winning power by making people dependent, add the fact they have a propaganda machine that would make Goebbels proud, and we have 8-years of massive incompetence at the helm... and massive destruction.

    Parasite Nation will wake up one day (as the Greeks have been FORCED to do), but then it'll be too late... their government issued diapers will be full of "it", and there won't be anyone at Comedy Central DC to clean up their mess for them. They'll be farked, as will generations of Americans after we're gone.

    That's our legacy... from FDR to today... the destruction of America by socialism.

    hmmm - so you have the flu - here's a prescription - and by the way ... do you have a gun?

    don't think so.

    in general, doctors are too busy to ask irrelevant questions.
