Docs vs. Glocks: Court Rules that Doctors Can Interrogate Patients About Guns

 Ask all you want, but I will simply reply that it is none of your business.

A federal court ruled on Thursday that doctors have a constitutional right to ask about their patients’ firearms—and record their answers—even if those questions are irrelevant to the health of the patient.

The ruling ends a controversial battle between doctors and the state of Florida. The Florida state legislature passed a law in 2011 barring medical professionals from asking about their patients’ guns unless those questions were directly related to the patient’s situation (i.e., the patient was suicidal or violent).

  1. This should have been thrown out of court. Obviously a doctor can talk to his patient about anything he likes.

    The right way to handle it is to lie to them. With Obamacare, your answers go into your record which is now electronically searchable without a warrant. And the answer "none of your business" = "yes I have guns". The right answer is to always lie to the government. They depend on mountains of data to enact their worst policies. Corrupt their data at the source.

    1. The right answer is to always lie to the government.

      Maybe, but they already know everything about me. I even made the $PLC's hit list last year and this :)

    2. It's never too late to corrupt the file. Then when you have conflicting data in your file, the computer chokes.

      It is probably in one of your files that you are White. What if after today, all your new information came attached to blocks checked "black"? Can you see how that would mess things up? And it's not even technically lying since there is no objective or legal definition of "black". Imaging your congressional districts being redrawn based on the presence of as few as 100 new "black people" in your district. Imagine the next "Obama" president using the HUD form to decide to relocate more section 8 housing into or out of your neighborhood and finding that you already have enough of the "right kind", so they leave you alone instead. All because you marked "black" instead of "non of your damned business".

    3. If you are on the SPLC list, then that tells me what I need to know. You are a patriot. I had a new doctor a couple of years ago. His office had a nurse, whose job it was to act as a monitor of the patients and to keep in touch with them, make sure that everything was done right, etc. On the first meeting with her, she asked me, "Do you have any guns in your home?" She then said, "I am going to put no, on that line. I have to ask, but I don't think it is anyone's business if you have guns or not." Needless to say, my respect for her tripled. I have switched doctors since then, due to insurance,of course. My new doctor asked me if I had any guns. I just said, no. I hate to lie, it is actually a very big deal with me. But I am also a patriot, and am not going to allow the government to intrude into my life without fighting, and I would never hand someone a gun to shoot me, and also give them the bullet.

    4. I'm here for all the world to see, no ifs, ands or buts and have been for 15 years. :)

      Good deal! Email today below

      did you know that YOU made the Southern Poverty Law Center's list of evil Patriot groups? Here's the link-
      Our militia made it too, but you're one guy! What an honor!
      Your friend,

  2. What gets me is that the govt already knows you have guns. Here we have to go thru a background check to buy a gun. But, having worked for the feds, I know that they have lots of information but many times they don't put 2 and 2 together. I have no problem lying to the feds. Bite me.

  3. Private information provided to the government which then may be searched and taken without a 4th Amendment warrant is a criminal action. I worked in a major medical center and we were legally bound by the HIPPA law to protect patients' private information. Does that not apply to everyone, especially our government employees, according to "the equal protection of the laws" (14th Amendment). If a doctor asks such a question knowing it goes to a searchable data base, then he should be asked why he needs to know and if he knows that he is aiding and abetting illegal government actions by violating the 4th Amendment. --Ron W
