    Why would they need that?
    It's for the safety of the children. The doctor needs to determine if the child is at risk because of their right wing extremist anti government parents. Expect a visit from the SS (Social Services).

    With the implementation of Obamacare, we have no idea what doctors are required to find out about families now and, the scary part, we don't know who will receive the information. Going back in history, Germans were so indoctrinated that they would inform on each other to the Gestapo and other government agencies about their activities. What easier way to get information than to ask seemingly innocent questions of a child. They are not aware of any ulterior motives that may be used by caregivers. That information could easily be obtained at day care centers, etc. and reported to the "authorities." Given the government we now have, I believe anything could be possible. The anti-gun people would not hesitate to stoop that low if they could deprive us of our weapons. Don't ever think they will quit trying!

    My son lived next door to a doc in Greeville, NC. The doc had a pistol range in his back yard. I often did a little target practice when I visited my son.

    Some would actually try to turn you in to Child Protective Services. The doctor would claim that the child lives in a "dangerous setting."

    I had the "guns in the home question" asked to me when my daughter was very ill and had to be admitted to the hospital. The nurse asked "do you keep guns in the home?" I replied "What do you think....?" She asked another question: "Are any loaded?" I replied: " Begging your pardon ma'am, this is really none of anybody's [email protected]% business. My daughter is running a high fever and is severly dehydrated and this hospital is more concerned about firearms in my home."

    I think there was a bill introduced in our state legislature this year prohibiting this question. However, I cannot find any records of it.

    I was surprised to learn that my dermatologist is a FFL holder. My own personal doctor asked me for a class for his license. So there are some docs who are pro-gun. The AMA continues to preach anti-gun sentiments in their publications. I believe doctors read these and feel some responsibility for expressing their opinions. In most states a doctor is a mandated reporter. This requires him/her to report treating stab, burn or gunshot wounds to the police.

    I guess 65 million gun-owners will be getting a call from CPS.

  8. I am a physician and am VERY Pro Gun. As I have posted on other threads the medical and public health literature are replete with anti gun bias. It does not matter how many times Kallerman et al is refuted it always seems to be treated as gospel.

    The official stated position of the American Acadamy of Pediatrics is that private ownership of firearms should be illegal (for the children)

    The well child guidelines published by the AAP contain the questions referred to about firearms in the home and how they are stored. When I was in training to be a Family Physician anytime I worked with pediatricians I would have to ask similar questions or be graded down as performing an inadaquate interview and inadaquate "anticipatory guidance"

    For those of you who reload at home. Even if the physician does not ask about firearms, your status as a gun owner could be recorded during the "anticipatory guidance" about lead levels in the home.

    Being Pro gun, I was very disturbed by the implications of the questions and wouild always work something along the lines of "I respect your right to keep and bear arms" into my anticipatory guidance spiel. I would merely note "firearms safety discussed" in the medical record NEVER would I record if the patient's family had guns in the home. Since I asked the question at every well child visit it could not be used to determine the presence or absence of firearms in the patient's home.

    Incidently I have also given presentations on firearms, firearms safety and safe storage in peer conferences. I have gotten to know several physicians who go shooting on a regular basis through these as well as introduced some of my collegues to more hands on firearms training.

    If my PM Doc asked, it would be more likely a long conversation. We both read the same type of books and they do involve guns.

    Actually, the new health care law has provisions in it that prohibit the collection of such information. They were put in there by none other than Harry Reid as a concession to gun owners when the democrats were doing all the wheeling and dealing trying to get health care passed. Shocker, huh?

    Yep. This is their 'guidance' to physicians:

    Oldgrunt is correct on so many fronts here... Obamacare will be more about information gathering, indoctrination, and social manipulation than healthcare. This is just another intrusion into our private lives by government and what is garnered will not be used to the benefit of the "patient". With todays technology, any info from any source will be collated to form a profile on every individual and the state will then deem how that person will fit and function (or not) in their "new world" society. We have entered a "post constitutional" era in the U.S. and for those of us who love freedom and individualism this will not be a happy land.
