    Got asked the Gun In The House ? today

    I had to make a trip to my general practitioner today for some lingering problems I've finally go fed up with. I have not been there in two years so they had me fill out the obligatory forms. On one of the forms it asked me if I had a gun in the house. I answered yes. I suspect my physician is as liberal as they come. It will be interesting to see if anything is said going forward. I may be going back quite frequently if they can't find the problem. Stay tuned.

    I would have wrote none of their business. I have already instructed both of my children to give that answer if any doctor, dentist, etc asks that question.

    I would not answer it, or answer it "No". It is none of their business.

    I'd leave any question I felt was not relevant to the medical exam blank. Doesn't matter if it is about guns or something else. If they don't like it too bad.

    Huh?
    Why is it any other their business?
    My standard answer for questions like that is "NOYFB" or "NA" if I'm in a good mood.

    Heh...I don't fill out any of them except the pertinent questions(symptoms, family history, etc...). Everything else gets left blank. Don't give them any room. If you answer some of them and only skip the obvious ones (firearms drugs etc...) then that leaves them room to think about it and form their own "opinion". By not answering ANY of them, they can't form any opinion ...

    Good answers. And if I see that question on a form, I'm not going to be in a good mood, so I'll probably never make it to "NA".

    I hope you don't mind me borrowing your answer from now on Rugergirl.

    I've yet to be asked that question by a doctor or anyone else that thinks they have any "authority", but in my neighborhood it would be a really stupid question to ask anyway.

    If asked on a "form", it would be left blank... then if asked verbally, it may just be the NOYFB answer...and NOT the acronymn. But I look "old and chrotchity"....I could pull it off

    I wouldn't have answered the question. That is none of your doctors business, period. If you felt obligated to answer the question, answer NO!

    I would not have answered that question either and would have just left it blank.

    I take a yearly hearing test at my company given by a contractor. Their questionnaire had a couple of questions I didn't much care for or answer about shooting guns. I let them know right off this was not pertinent information and frankly none of their business. The sign up sheets would also lay around on supervisors' desks the previous week with everyone's social security numbers in the open until the paperwork was given to the employee for the test. They don't do either of these things anymore. Now we just go and give our name when entering the testing van.

    Like others here, that particular question has no bearing on my medical conditions and if I ever see it on any medical questionaires, there will also be no answer.
