    Physical with Questionaire

    It's that time of year again, I'm getting a physical tomorrow. I have the usual form for medical history to fill out. I've posted on this before, but the question asking if I have a firearm in the house I left unanswered this time. I'm going to seeif the Doc asks me why I left it unanswered. I'll post again if a discussion on the matter takes place.

    That seems to become more prevalent in medical situations. I dont like it at all.

    I would just say no, unless you go hunting. In the end, why do they want to know? Unless you have a history of some type of injury that would be aggravated by hobbies, which is something a person reading a physical form would know, it doesn't matter.

    Actually, just say no. They have no need to know. I'm not aware of any law that you would be violating. At least you wouldn't be doing anything illegal in Wisconsin anyways.

    I would agree with saying no, none of their business. Personally I would talk to the doctor the first time it was asked and probably look for a new doctor. Fortunately it is highly unlikely that such a question would be asked up here. My doctor is an elk hunter.

    Ask if that includes RPGs or Stinger missiles. That should determine his true interests.

    I think they're just routine health assessment quesions. Once a year for the past dozen or so years, I fill out a form at my doctor's office with questions like smoking, motorcycle use, seat belt use and, yes, gun presence in the home. I've always answered them and see nothing sinister. HOWEVER, what Homeland Security does with it, should they access your file with the new computerized record systems is unclear.

    Maybe routine back there, I have never been asked such questions other than smoking.

    "the question" comes from a standard questionnaire from the AMA. It really doesn't reflect much on your individual doctor, other than he probably doesn't put much thought into his own questionnaires.

    The only question about firearms by my doctor is what have you bought lately.

    What about hatchets, axes, pitchforks, chainsaws, machetes, arrows, a kitchen full of knives and a tackle box full of rusty ole fish hooks?

    Florida recently has had a new law up for a vote that says doctors can no longer ask this question. I believe it passed. Since I'm going to the doctors soon I will find out!

    I answer YES. Why should I act ashamed of it? It is of course none of their business, and just leaving the space blank and saying so is OK, but heck, I'm proud that I'm someone who took the time and made the effort, and passed the background checks to get my CHL.

    So, I'll answer YES. No one is coming to my door to take it away for heavens sake. On the list of things to worry about, that is down there way below slipping in the shower.

    Would that not be an infringement on the doc's free speech?

    S/he can ask, you can decline to answer or decide to answer untruthfully if that is your choice. You are also free to find another doc. What's the big deal? Its not like you are signing something under oath.
