Thread: Dr asks wife, "Guns in house?"

  1. #11
    This is a simple-straightforward question. I can't see what the problem is. If the doctor were to ask me about this I'd just be honest. I'd answer:

    "Of course, doesn't everyone who values their freedom? Would you like to see the one I'm carrying now?"

    There are some places like here in HI where the police dept will send a letter to your doctor when you apply for a firearms permit. :icon_mad: The doctor then has about a week to respond to the letter from the police dept. Here in Hawaii, your physician could be responsible for getting your firearms permit denied, AND causing future headaches when applying for permits in the future. :n:

    Seems to me that that would be a HIPPA violation. Should they ask your lawyer as well? Whatever happened to "patient/doctor confidentiality"?

    New Screening Questions for young Doc.

    Yes it is true that all new Dr. are trained to ask the question"are there firearms in the home and if so you should remove them because it is very unsafe to have them in the home with young children" a friend of mine is a former trooper and now is the person that obtains bodies for Dr. to practice on and ALL of his new pediatritions (I am a terrible speller) are trained to as such a question. It should be very interesting when my first baby comes along in a few months and we go to see that Dr. for the first time because I think when he/she ask that question I am going to take out my carry piece (a Kimber Ultra CarryII) and say "like this one?"
    I am a disabled LOE and a Firearms instructor now not to mention a NRA life member so this one will not go over well!

    Do you really think that "brandishing" your firearm in the doctor's office is an appropriate thing to do? :icon_rolleyes: I strongly recommend that you find a more tactful approach in this situation. There are many "anti" 2A folks, there are many more folks "on the fence". Do we really need to give the undecided folks a reason to join the "anti" folks?

    I went with my wife to all of her pre-natal visits, so I was there when the Doc asked "if we had guns in the house". My response was "Maybe. You could break in one night and find out."
