    I'll say it again... JUST LIE TO THE DOCTOR. End of conversation. You can then get about treating the disease. For those who don't want to lie, you're merely combating tyranny with tyranny. The end justifies the means.

    And if you think this is local only, look who is trying to intimidate Florida for the medical groups. Three doctors groups suing Florida over law limiting doctors in asking patients about guns
    Bruce Manheim of the Washington-based Ropes & Gray law firm said Thursday he would file the lawsuit immediately after Scott signed the law.
    Ropes & Gray sound familiar? Brady Campaign lawyers.
    He serves on the firm’s Pro Bono Committee and represents individuals and organizations in pro bono cases. Most recently, Bruce successfully represented the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence in a lawsuit striking down a federal rule that would have allowed loaded and concealed guns in national parks and wildlife refuges.
    AAP's stand:

    The most effective way to prevent firearm-related injury to children is to keep guns out of homes and communities. The American Academy of Pediatrics strongly supports gun-control legislation. We believe that handguns, deadly air guns, and assault weapons should be banned.

    Until handguns are banned, we recommend that handguns and handgun ammunition be regulated, that restrictions be placed on handgun ownership, and that the number of privately owned handguns be reduced. Firearms should be removed from the environments where children live and play, but if they are not, they must be stored locked and unloaded. Loaded firearms and unloaded firearms and ammunition represent a serious danger to children."
    Wording on their site has been changed as to hide their stand but not much
    This statement reaffirms the 1992 position of the American Academy of Pediatrics that the absence of guns from children's homes and communities is the most reliable and effective measure to prevent firearm-related injuries in children and adolescents. A number of specific measures are supported to reduce the destructive effects of guns in the lives of children and adolescents, including the regulation of the manufacture, sale, purchase, ownership, and use of firearms; a ban on handguns and semiautomatic assault weapons; and expanded regulations of handguns for civilian use. In addition, this statement reviews recent data, trends, prevention, and intervention strategies of the past 5 years.

    Such questions have NO place in medical practice.

    These organizations have left medicine for politics.
    It is for such very good reason that I firmly REFUSED to join any such groups as AMA, AAFP or their ilk. I am still proud to belong to NO professional medical group!

    Although the decision was dated September 14, 2011, i just came across it today searching for something else.

    The court granted the doctors' motion for a preliminary injunction against the law, holding that it violated the 1st amendment and that it didn't protect any 2A rights.
