That has been around for a while — school quetionaires about whether your parents own guns, if you go to church, if you get spanked, etc., abound in California. My kids pediatrician asked me when my daughter was less than 1 year old if I kept a gun in the home. I asked him what business it was to him. His answer was that kids are more likely to die in an accidental shooting in homes where guns were present and “he had an ethical obligation to evaluate every factor in determining the health and safety of one of his patients”.
When I said that sounds a like he was trying to determine if we met his standards for prenting and that if we did not, he would be a good little nazi and report us to CPS, he squirmed a lot and finally stated, “only in extereme cases and if I was convinced that my patient was being abused or in a dangerous environment”. I told him that if I did have the means to satisfy one of my basic rights as a human being (self defense), that was none of his f-—ing business (yes I did drop an F’bomb) and I would find another doctor for my kid that was’nt some quiche eating little brownshirt fag busybody. Exact quote.
And he said......?
Did he ask if there were any homosexuals in the house?
I always love the “accidental gun death” analogy. Apparently, statistics show more drownings than gun related deaths. Yet, there are more guns than pools.
