    Yea, that will go over like a fart in church on a hot summer day.


    Skippy, thanks for the links.
    I will support gun control when you can guarantee all guns are removed from this planet. That includes military and law enforcement. When you can accomplish that, then I will be the last person to lay down my gun. Then I will carry the weapon that replaces the gun.

    No problem guys. You should actually thank Xavier's Thoughts who is another "nurse with a gun". I regularly visit the sight and found the article about the AMA advising docs to pry into their patients live about firearms.

    The other approach is you can also say "The day that my firearms instructor is able to give me a prescription for antibiotics will be the day I receive firearms safety from you."

    Guns came up during my physical today. I think I was the first one to mention it, but he was a lot more receptive to a discussion than I thought he might be. He does have concerns about his responsibility and need to protect his family. His negative concern is that he has 6 boys age 3-12 and a 1 y/o daughter with Down Syndrome. He's concerned about how to integrate firearms with his sons. I told him about the NRA Eagle Eddie program, and Cornered Cat about the philosophy to educate and train kids. He listened. I also talked to him about various training options available. Can't do too much during a physical while he's making sure my head isn't up my a$$ as my wife believes. Good conversation and I plan to follow up more during future visits.

    Actually I get asked that every year during my annual PHA (online medical questionnaire/exam) and I also get asked if they are loaded or locked up. And every year they tell me to not keep them loaded and to lock them up. I wonder when the Med Group will learn....

    i'e only been asked that question once, not by a doctor though. i was asked by the preacher at my mothers church when home on EML. walked over to where mine are stored and showed him my SW5906 spawning a long discussion of the benifits of .45 over 9mm and why a weapon is best kept on ones person rather than in a gun closet in another room.

    Cool

    Can't remember where I got this but it sure fits this situation. Show it to your doctor or the nurse if they start asking you questions about guns or pushing gun control.


    Doctors and Guns

    Here's some statistics that you may find of interest... (No offense intended to any doctors on this forum.)

    Doctors:
    (A) The number of doctors in the U.S. Is 700,000
    (B) Accidental deaths caused by physicians per year are 120,000
    (C) Accidental deaths per physician is 17.14%
    Statistics courtesy of the U.S. Dept. Of Health & Human Services

    Guns:
    (A) The number of gun owners in the U.S. Is 80,000,000 (yes that's 80 million)
    (B) The number of accidental gun deaths per year, all age groups, is 1,500
    (C) The number of accidental deaths per gun owner is 0.001875%
    Statistics courtesy of the FBI

    So statistically, doctors are approximately 9,000 times more dangerous than gun owners.
    Remember, guns don't kill people, doctors do.

    FACT: NOT EVERYONE HAS A GUN, BUT ALMOST EVERYONE HAS AT LEAST ONE DOCTOR

    Please alert your friends to this alarming threat.

    We must ban doctors before this gets completely out of hand!!!

    The American Academy of Pediatrics is very anti-gun. They are pretty much anti-everything that might give Jr. a boo-boo are 'damage' his psyche. My wife is a Family Practice Doc (AAFP), which means that she sees infants to elderly. She said the only time she asks if you have a gun at home is if your shot. The AAP started this years ago and I asked her about what The AAFP position was. Her reply was at this time they aren't wasting their time w/ questions not pertaining to the health of patients.
