This is another step on that very slippery slope.
    Situations like this are exactly why the question about guns doesn't belong in the exam room in the first place. Where does one persons rights end and another persons rights begin? Abuse should be visible, not just to the doctor but to teachers, other parents, the barber and a host of other people. Why should guns be up for debate in the exam room? The parent might shoot the child? C'mon ....

    For jumpwing and noway2, Ya'll are exactly right. I think I explaind my thinking a little further down in my post.
    Based on evidence at hand, Doc should ask certin questions. But the outright "Does Mommy & Daddy have guns at home?" line of questioning....... as posted eariler, train the young'uns to tell the Doc to ask Momma &/or Daddy that question.

    " ...the inquiry about gun ownership is but one part of a battery of questions asked typically of patients with small children..."

    Seeing as this is taking place in FL, and seeing as I live there and visit the DRs often, I have yet to see any forms asking anything other than past medical family and personal history, whether I use drugs or alcohol, nor have I been asked anything about firearms by any medical person in any capacity. Maybe the bulge under my shirt deters it?

    But until I need treatment for a GSW, I'll consider any such questions as NOYB.

If anything, I'd expect it would facilitate a greater awareness of safe gun handling/storage in these households - sounds like a positive thing to me.
    Soooooo.....does your Doctor ask you if you have chainsaws, kitchen knives, axes, screwdrivers, electrical outlets, plastic bags, string, yarn, rope, extension cords, stairs, 5 gallon buckets, coffee pots, dogs, cats......around your house??? I didn't think so! It's none of your doctor's GD Business!!! When my wife and I got married 6yrs ago, she needed a new primary doctor, since she was in a new town, etc. I setn her to mine. She came home and told me that the doctor started asking her about how many guns were in the house, etc. My wife said she politely declined to answer the questions. I told my wife, "I guess we both need to find a new primary care physician!" I later discovered that it is well documented that the AMA is anti-gun and encourages doctors to document gun owners. WHY????? I think we all know why!

    I'm sorry that ya'll are that way with the doctors.

    Me and my family doctor discuss guns for 20 minutes before we get to the other stuff. We we bought, how it performed, what we're gonna get...you know...the usual stuff.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    I am lucky in having the same relationship with my doctor, in fact we both shoot at the same range.
    When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.
