That's comforting. ...But what if it becomes a requirement for you to ask and document?

Agreed, and I'll tell my doc to go **** himself if/when he asks. And instruct my children to give a more polite, but same, answer.

You're correct, if you have to have a back ground check for a private sale, that means going through an FFL, that ain't private no mo.

Unless they devise a means to do so through a Smartphone for example, that simply comes back with a 'Yay' or 'Nay', I see no other means by which it could happen.
I really have no problem doing the sale at an FFL, and I'm sure some would welcome the flood of $10/$20 transactions that would inevitably happen.

"Exactly. You have your reasons for "needing" multiple purse's, I have my reasons for "needing" 10 plus rounds and an AR. Regardless if you think I need an AR or I think you need a Louis Voutton(sp?) purse's, the gov't shouldn't be telling us what we do and don't need."

What could happen, private party sales through an FFL only? Of course they can happen, it'll be the cornerstone for his argument for a full database of weapons that everyone owns. Once they know you own it, you'll have to sell it legally because much like the FFLs themselves, you'll be subject to a short notice (or no notice) inquiry to make sure you still own the firearms you have on record...

How wil this affect law enforcement officers? We carry 46 rounds of .40 cal at a time. 90 rounds of .223. On duty.
If my rifle is personally owned but department inspected and maintained then what? 10 round mags for personal practice and 20-30 rounders for duty?

There is nothing that says you can't ask the doctor if they are having any trouble in the bedroom department with their spouse as a response to their question about your guns.

Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

A few thoughts here.
1. 17 does NOT violate Dr. patient confidentiality. There are already laws on the books in every state that make all healthcare workers mandated reporters. In most states, clergy are mandated reporters as well. What that means (though it's a little different in each state), is that if someone is suicidal, or if they are going to commit a crime, the mandated reporter MUST inform the proper authorities. This is a reaffirmation of a law already on the books.
2. CDC research is offbase because guns and gun violence is NOT a disease and as such, there is no mandate for the Center for Disease Control to research it.
3. No where in these statements does it mention "gun registration." If we start yelling and screaming about gun registration out of this set of proposals, all it will do is make us look like we're reactionary, and that will turn the average person against us because they will not want to side with reactionaries. Sure, we can argue that his proposal is reactionary, but it's a lost argument on the average person.
4. If a doc. asks me if I have a gun in my house, my answer to him is that I make it a point not to tell anyone anything I have in my home.
5. This could have been a whole lot worse. I think the NRA and us gunowners should focus on the issue of doctors trying to teach gun control and asking about it. Also push on what is meant by doing checks on weapons seized before they are returned. Make the president spend his political capital on these issues and he won't have enough for pushing gun control through the house and senate.
On a side note: Check your state laws before getting all up in arms about a traffic stop equaling losing your weapon for a year. That's fallacious at best and could very well be illegal for that to happen. For instance, in my state, it is mandated by law that the weapon cannot be taken from a person except during a stop, and must be returned at the end of the stop.
Let's be LOGICAL and engage reason here before we react, or we will end up looking just as silly as those who are reactionary and want to ban all guns.

We absolutely have to fight this 'what you need and don't need' premise to the 2nd Amendment. It is the Bill of RIGHTS, not the Bill of Needs. The Founding Fathers intended for individuals to be able to arm and organize themselves in order to defend themselves against tyranny, by force, if necessary. I immediately dismiss the notion that we need high-capacity magazines or 'assault weapons'. It is a flawed and fundamentally incorrect premise.

I want to see doctors stand up for freedom and not be accolytes of gun control. We need more Ron Pauls.
Lastly, there seems to be some consideration of criminalizing the owner of record of a lost or stolen gun.
A lot of these are creepy and possible only with the relatively new mass storage technology. Does every market revolution precipitate socialist and expansive government as did the Industrial Revolution? I say, "Hell no!".

Reason: DOJ didn't _allow_ sales of guns - they ordered them.

I apologize in advance for not reading every post in this thread before replying so if I'm beating a dead horse, forgive me. But...
I read several comments stating something to the effect of, "Well, that's not too bad". To that I say yea, it's much worse than that.
"Direct the Attorney General to review categories of individuals prohibited from having a gun to make sure dangerous people are not slipping through the cracks."
doesn't scare the crap out of you, I don't know what will. Exactly who is the esteemed AG going to deem "dangerous" and thereby prohibit from having guns?
