    Your Doctor performing Firearm background checks

    Does anyone else have an issue with your doctor perform background checks, ask how you store your firearms, or do you have a mentally ill family member, etc.?

    Bend over and cough, Oh by the way while I'm holding your manhood do you have any firearms? How about your Mother-in-Law with Old Timers?

    He can ask whatever likes. How I answer is on me.

    Physicians have enough to worry about. Don't ask them to do something like this. The problem is that personal bias and subjective interpretation may cloud the patient-physician interaction if or when the subject of firearms comes up during a routine office visit. What if the physician is decidedly anti-gun? What if a simple question to a gun-owning patient about his firearms triggers a heated discussion in the clinic? The physician decides to "report" this patient to the proper authorities even though there is no formal diagnosis of a mental disorder. Have we thought that through?

    I'm curious as to what the criteria and dialogue script will be when a physician brings up gun ownership during an appointment with a patient. Will there even be a script? How do we standardize these tens of thousands of patient-physician interactions and turn them into clear unambiguous data? If this patient sees another physician across town, would that physician see fit to alert authorities about the patient? One doc might report a patient when another doc, seeing the same patient and asking the same questions, might not.

    I'm getting a headache. This is ridiculous.

    He can ask whatever he wants, for now I still have the right to remain silent. Just like I can ask him how much money he has in the bank...he doesn't have to answer my question either.

    I'll flatly ask them, "Why are you asking me a question that has absolutely nothing to do with my health or the job you are paid to perform?"

    Well heck... By the title I thought I might be able to get a firearm transferred with my co-pay. Dashed my hopes again!

    Usually one of my doctors questions is “What have you bought lately” since it is common for us to run into each other at the range.

    My doctor in VA invited me over to his place to shoot groundhogs. Asked me to bring a variety of things over so he could check out some different stuff to help him decide what to buy. We also played cards together, and he never asked me if I had a gambling problem (because he usually won, it wasn't a problem). Life is much different in a urban environment. I miss the rural country mountains...

    My answer would be if I am in a good mood "Really?" if I was in a bad mood would be "None of your damn business."

    The question isn't a problem for me since since I lost all my guns in that freak gardening accident. PVC pipe and grease were involved.

    Seeing as I didn't get one until after i turned 40 :)
    I think this one is about the best response I've seen yet. There is still the classic, simple, no. Perhaps followed by, "I'll show you mine if you show me yours"

    I wondered if the doctor was going to say anything...

    I was saw a pulmonary doctor (sleep study) today. She is a very friendly lady, but I know from past conversations that she is not pro-gun.
    Today I had a follow-up appointment, and I was not going to disarm. I figured that we would only be talking about my sleep study from a couple of months ago...so no problem.
    Well, when she finished with her study report, she decided to listen to my heart and lungs...I figured, OK, we'll see if she is bothered by my CC Glock-36, OWB at 4:30.
    She listened here, she listened there, she thumped here, she thumped there...nothing, nada, zip, zero...she didn't stumble upon my 'secret'.
    So...I don't know what she would have said, I guess it doesn't matter now.
    I guess my concealed carry is fairly effective. It was not illegal for me to carry there.

    I probably would not offer much info if asked by a doctor about my SD/HD, except how do I transfer my file to another doctor.
