0bamacare somehow manages to encompass firearms and firearm safety. How soon before ‘SURGEON GENERAL’ warning labels are mandatory on the barrels or grips of all guns? What an F’ing joke.
“But there is public confusion about whether federal law prohibits such reports about threats of violence”
I am assuming that CDC along with anti-gun medical associations will evenytally define “threat of violence” as the condition of owning a firearm.
“Protect the rights of health care providers to talk to their patients about gun safety:”
I believe that every doctor who wants to talk to a patient about gun safety should be certified to do so by the NRA.
Every doctor should be as comfortable with a pistol, rifle, shotgun and have familiarity with their anatomy, physiology and safe handling before they can assess patients about it.
After all, we have to be certified to practice our medical speciality, and also have to be certified in Child/Domestic Abuse and Infection Control as a prerequisite for our licensure.
