This number is bogus as hell. I don't think that the total of ALL gun deaths ever approached even 1/4 of that number in a year, including suicide, police shootings, etc.

120,000 would be somewhat less than 5% of the population of the US. If that many idiots were dying eacch year, we would be a much safer, healthier nation.
Re, the original post- I always carry (at the absolute least) two knives. Were my physcian to ask me to remove them from the office, I would happily do so, along with my business. Most of my doc friends are hardly "elitist", I used to work with one who carried his BHP with 2 mags in his briefcase, and a Makarov on his person, in the ED.

Sorry, Sorry, Sorry - my bad. My eyes/brain failed as I typed in the info. It wasn't 120,000 - that was for the doctors; it was only 1500 for gun owners.

Nevermind. Tangle covered it in his post right above mine. Carry on. Move along folks. Nothing to see here.

Probably the only home based FFL that doesn't do transfers.

Thanks, I figured it was a typo. If the numbers were ever really that high, our enemies would have been successful in banning everything!

My doctors office won't even let you turn your cell phone on in the waiting room let alone allow a gun in there. However, the Loss Prevention mind set is kicking in again. Lets take it from the doctors office perspective.........
Perhaps these women in this particular doctors office don't feel very secure themselves being alone in a small room, containing a padded horizontal surface, with the door shut examining an armed man? Where do you put your piece when they say drop trou and put on this robe? Out of reach I'm sure.
100k a year? Imagine how much co-payment cash, vicoden or oxycontons are laying around a place like that eh? What would a dishonest man with a gun like to do with that piece of information?
I firmly believe in the right to carry. But remember, not all people do so legally or for honest purposes.
