    Never ran into this problem in Texas!!!

    [QUOTE=Jetpilot007;1553106]I took my wife to the doctor office not too long ago. Since my wife was a new patient, we had the usual 3 inch paperwork to fill out.

    One of the questions asked:

    "Do you own firearms in the home? If so are they secured and locked?"

    My face turned WHITE! I said who the hell is the guy asking such an intrusive question? I took my pen, and
    wrote:

    "NONE OF YOUR DAMN BUSINESS!"



    I understand your feelings on this - but - anyone reading your response would probably translate your answer to be "Yes I have firearms in my home but I'm not happy about being asked about it"
    For God, Family and Country!

    My friends, this is just the beginning. Under the new Law of the Land, Obama Crapcare, there will be more intrusive questions, and in my prediction, more detailed questions on firearms.

    On a general note:

    I WILL NOT BUY INTO THIS HEALTH CARE MANDATE AND INSTEAD PAY THE FINE IF I HAVE TOO. IN SHORT I WOULD TELL THE OBAMA GOVERNMENT GOON SQUAD TO LEAVE ME ALONE!

    This thread is just too "Biden's favorite word" funny!!!!
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    With our wonderful new socialist medical system, I would answer 'No'. Since the government regularly lies to me, I am merely returning the favor.

    Does she remind you to keep the kitchen knives locked up ? Or to make sure the garage door safety interrupt is functional so your kid don't get crushed ? Don't get offended but I call BS on the doc.

    In fact I am going to call my provider and ask them if they are indeed asking this question.
    I am a "provider" (hate that word, BTW), and I can tell you no insurance company has asked me to ask that question, and unless they requested the entire record, which is unusual, the insurance company would never know the answer anyway. I expect this was on a pre-made history form, and of course depending on the doc's political leanings, the answer to the question, either positive or negative, was likely ignored. Just my 2 cents.

    I am retired so I give my Soc. Sec. number so I can get my medical bills paid.
    Glad I have it as I would NOT be able to pay for it myself. Last year I had over $40,000 in bills paid by Medicare and my secondary insurer. Both my wife and I are greatful for that!!!

    Holy crap^^^^^^^^^^^^

    Talk about instilling fear where it would hit the doctor the hardest:the pocket book, and quite possibly their livelyhood

    I've never seen this on a written form but its been common knowledge for years that the doctor's "professional" groups like the American Medical Assoc. were pushing their members to "counsel" their victims, er, I mean patients, on the hazards of gun ownership.

    My kids go to a group pediatric practice where they might see any of 6 or 8 doctors in that office. I was there with one daughter (about 11 years old) about 6-8 years ago when the doc asked her if there were any guns in the house. Before I could interrupt she answered “Yes but its okay, my dad is a cop”. I then looked directly at her and told her that we don't discuss our family security details with strangers, especially those who don't have enough class to do their jobs and keep their noses out of other people's business.

    The doc then addressed me and started spouting the old BS stats about how a gun in the home was more likely to be used to kill a family member than an intruder when I cut him off and told my daughter we especially don't talk to people who think they know more than we do when they clearly don't know what they're talking about. The clown then started to argue with me and I pointed out to him that the “study” he was quoting had been widely discredited long before he finished med school and that he should not discuss subjects that he has no real knowledge of and that I would appreciate it if he would stop lying to my kids. We still go to that pediatric group but we avoid seeing that particular retard.

    Red Lock Rules

    Yes it is your government at work, something called "Red Lock Rules" which are supposed to help prevent ID theft. I think they achieve the opposite.

    What the rules are aimed at is the provider having a plan to protect against ID theft such as fraudulent use of someone else's insurance or credit. This effectively means double checking ID in one way or another who you are, and asking for ID is a convenient though intrusive and inappropriate way of doing things.

    This is an FTC regulation, and not statute passed by Congress, but it doesn't matter. It is relatively new, going back about 18 months or so.

    Literally applied, your veterinarian and even your plumber and electrician, anyone who extends temporary credit to you, that is bills you by mail after the work is done, must have a plan in place.

    When my dentist for the past 20 years asked for my DL I refused. I told him he knew darn well who I was and that the Red Lock Rules do not specify that they copy a DL. They didn't like it, but we are still doing business.

    Outstanding response, I'll have to remember that!
