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!
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....
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.
Make no mistake, the AMA is serious about this. Go back and click on my link to the AMA's Firearms Policies.
When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
And the women come out to cut up what remains,
Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
And go to your God like a soldier.
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...

Doc: We will need a home visit.
Mr. and Mrs. Sixto: That's great! When should we come over?
Oh, should we eat ahead of time, or will you be serving dinner?

The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it.
Captain Crunch is so right! The AMA is on a crusade to rid the world of firearms in the name of "public health". Whether or not I have firearms in my home is none of any of my physician's business! If a pediatrician believes he/she sees some evidence of physical abuse in a patient, they certainly have a responsibility to report it to the proper authorities. 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.

I'd be steamed too!
