The arrogant ass in the white house doesn't care about law. In his mind (and the minds of his upporters) he's been elected dictator so that every whim of his narcissistic personality must be followed by the masses of us common citizens

Florida Law Prohibiting Doctors From Asking Gun Questions Brings Lawsuit
A bill banning Florida physicians from asking patients about gun ownership, signed into law last week by Governor Rick Scott (R), has brought out more than the typical hue and cry from the anti-self defense crowd.
On Monday, the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence, along with the Florida chapters of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), the American Academy of Family Physicians, and the American College of Physicians, filed a lawsuit seeking to throw out the new law.
While claiming the new law violates doctors First Amendment rights, the lawsuit hardly conceals its bias against gun rights.
By severely restricting such speech and the ability of physicians to practice such preventative medicine, the Florida statute could result in grievous harm to children, adolescents, adults, and the elderly, according to the motion filed Monday in federal court in Miami.
No mention is ever made, of course, of the grievous harm that is prevented because of lawful gun ownership. In fact, a wide range of studies show that self-defense uses of firearms dramatically outweigh accidents and the criminal misuse of guns. Doctors who discourage gun ownership actually make people less safe and more vulnerable to criminal attack.
