People lie to their doctors all the time...
Doctor: “Do you own a gun?”
Patient: “I’d tell you, but that would only spoil the surprise.”
How is this really any different than anyone asking you? I’ll talk to just about anyone about my guns. We do it here on FR all the time.
Obama is a communist,dictator piece of crap
it must be impeached
Obama is a communist, evil, piece of crap dictator that must be impeached. It uses a statistically nonexistent event to take away our rights and freedom .
These stupid mass shootings are statistically NONEXISTANT events. the news media has made this mass shooting the event that everyone is talking about for the last month.
Less than 100 people get killed in mass shootings per year.
Criminals rape 300,000 women per year in the U.S.
Criminals invade 2.5 million homes per year . These last 2 are real events and threats.
100,000 Americans dies each year in accidents.
millions of Americans die in the U.S. each year of causes not by a mass shooter only less than 100 do.
There are 50, events per year where lighting kills Americans. There are just a handful now of mass shooting events. but the news media makes sure that every mass shooting is reported on trillions of times to every American and that the shooter is world famous more so than any star.
Mass shootings didn’t happen in the 1800s or did so with even less frequency then. the news media causes these events now as that is where they get the idea to copy cat and also some to become famous
Most people do not know that Obamacare has already instituted a so-called “Wellness Exam”, which is nothing more than a questioning session done by a nurse of Medicare patients.
This, of course is only done in the quest for cost savings and prevention according to the government. The question regarding guns in the home, I am certain will be added to the list.
“The annual wellness visit, which has been offered by Medicare since January of 2011 as part of the Affordable Care Act signed into law two years ago by President Obama, is seen as a way to get seniors medical care upfront to avoid a costly hospitalization down the road.
“The wellness visit is not a physical exam but a way for a doctor to talk to the patient and ask questions about chronic conditions like diabetes or depression.”
“The term physical is often used to describe wellness care. But Medicare does not pay for a traditional, head-to-toe physical. Medicare does pay for a wellness visit once a year to identify health risks and help you to reduce them. At your wellness visit, our health care team will take a complete health history and provide several other services:
” Screenings to detect depression,....”
“a personal risk assessment (including any mental health conditions);”
“a review of functional ability and level of safety;”
“a review of the initial personal risk assessment;”
My doctors and nurse practitioners at the VA medical system are already asking this as part of their routine questioning. Hmmmm, why would the Obama administration want to sieze firearms from veterans?
My doc can ask all he wants, and I’ll refuse to answer.
But, then again, he won’t. He’s my academy classmate and he thinks the same of the Obamadork as I (and the vast, vast, VAST majority of my class) do.
Actually, I’d consider poor performance reports on ANY military individual who supports the dork.
It’s just plain poor judgement, and indicates that that individual has not read the constitution.
Of course, the real test will come when the military has to make certain decisions.
With ObamaCare, once they know who have and don’t have guns, they can decide if who gets health care insurance or not. If you don’t get health care insurance, you are breaking the law and will be assessed a penalty tax until you do get insurance. Nudge!
I see my doc once a year for an annual inspection. At least half of the visit is dedicated to sharing firearms and hunting stories. He’s not participating in the “game”.
I work in pediatrics and Drs have been asking the parents for a number of years,”Do you feel safe in the house,do you have any guns in the house?”
How many years have they been asking this?
More than 5 years.
I would ask the good Doctor if he has applied to the government for approval of his question to me.
If he can’t show me proof, then he’s an unregistered user of the First Amendment, and I’ll refuse to answer.
Doctor: “Any guns in the house?”
Me: “Are you MY doctor or Obama’s snoop? Say, doctors kill more people than guns every year, so how many people have you killed lately? You’re fired.”
First off, my doctor hates 0 bummercare and I doubt she will ask. If I ever have a doctor ask, I’ll say “Yes”.
A paint gun, two staple guns, two caulking guns, a nail gun, several air guns, and two antique, single shot 12 gage shotguns.
I’ll also tell him / her that I need a volunteer to pull the trigger on the two shotguns since they are both over 75 years old.
Here in California they already ask us about it.
I’ll say just one thing on this: Competent lying is a survival skill.
I’d ask the doc....Do you want to know about the hammers, knives and buckets I own also? They kill more people than guns, ya know....
