I forgot to mention that you wouldn't have been questioned like that at one practice that I worked at for several years, although before I started carrying. I was working in a family practice/urgent care clinic, where a few docs carried daily, along with the nursing staff. I used to say that we had the most heavily armed clinic in Vegas!

I don't know the issues surrounding TX A&M, but SB1440 was one piece of insidious legislation.

I guess it is too off topic to go into it here, and the legislation you refer to may well have needed a veto; but that after what was done last year doesn't make Perry a good guy. Maybe just someone who wised up, though that seems rather doubtful.

My kids are grown. However, we taught them to respect our guns and so they did and do. I can only say the doctor has drank the kool-aid. Not sure how accommodating I'd be should they show up at my house . I do remember carrying my 357 in AK and getting funny looks from people - The kool-aid was weaker then....

I try and stress to the kids never to tell ANYONE we have any firearms. I've put the fear of God in them concerning this and I hope it takes. I know how much my father grilled me over this when I was a kid...Of course being 5 and 7....they love to do the ole "my dad..." hopefully my talks will work. Then again maybe I shouldn't go around with one attached to my side all the time.

SIXTO, you should be concerned for the doctor. He obviously has a serious case of recto-cranial inversion, and it is really hard to breath that way. If you could just shove it up a little more...

The request for "home visit" made me laugh.

It really shouldn't. It should make anyone angry and indignant. The Doctor has absolutely NO authority to dictate to SIXTO how he raises his children and stores his guns, even if it is a "request."

Realistic answer to the home visit: "Go pound salt."
Answer I'd like to give: "Oh, one of your staff is an NRA certified rifle instructor and qualified to give advice on safe storage? Come to think of it, we have pistols and shotguns at home, too, so you better have certified basic instructors for those, too. Now, who on your staff qualifies and may I have their NRA instructor numbers in order to validate their credentials? What, you have no such people on your staff? Well, then...

This is what I would be most worried about. That group can be very heavy handed in their operations.

Based on medical evidence they personally observed during an exam of the patient. That should be the extent of their involvement over what happens in someone's home. This whole issues with Doctors and firearms questions really burns me.
