Doctor probes teen on guns in the home
Chicago Tribune ^ | 23 jan 2013 | John Kass

Posted on 01/23/2013 6:32:02 AM PST by rellimpank

In pro-gun-regulation Illinois — where politicians would rather play gun control politics than fight the murderous street gangs — a young man was admitted to the hospital.

Sam Insley, 16, of Oak Lawn, wasn't admitted with a gun problem.

Sam had a tonsil problem.

"It was an infected tonsil," Mary Rita Insley told me of her son Sam, a strapping, 6-foot-2-inch, 195-pound lacrosse player at St. Rita High School on the Southwest Side.

"Yes, he's a big kid, but regardless of his age and stature, my husband and I were with him the entire time he was there."

Sam was admitted to Advocate Hope Children's Hospital in Oak Lawn on Jan 4. A resident and two medical students began jotting down notes for a routine medical history. At one point, Mrs. Insley said, they asked her to step out of the room.

"I felt uneasy, but I stepped out so my son wouldn't be embarrassed," she told me, saying she figured they would ask drug and alcohol questions. Sam doesn't take drugs or alcohol, she said.

Had this happen to me, too. Brought my child in for an injury he sustained while playing football, and they asked if I had a gun in the house. "Do you see a bullet hole?" I countered. "What an irrelevant question."

Just answer "irrelevant."

Somebody on FR used to keep a list of logins and passwords for these kinds of news sites so we didn’t have to register. Anybody know where that list is now?

If they ask whether there are guns in the house just say no. Any other answer like “none of your business” will be taken as a “yes”.

>>>Mary Rita Insley, newly sensitized to gun issues, has since applied for a Firearm Owner’s Identification Card. But here’s what bothers her.

“If I purchase a gun, am I then supposed to train my children to lie for fear of the government knowing I have guns?” she asked<<<

I love when the leftist bullying tactics have the opposite of the desired effect and inspire citizens to exercise their rights.

As for the question, some possible answer she could instruct her children to give:

1) None of your DAMN business!
2) I’ll be happy to respond once you have adequately explained how that question is medically relevant to my condition.
3) Doctor, do you have any guns in YOUR house? Any alcohol? Any pornography? Any copies of left-wing publications?
4) I find it odd that you are asking a child who is your patient to inform on his parents. Did you know this sort of thing was common in Nazi Germany? Are you by any chance, a Nazi?
5) Are you planning on invading my house if I answer, “No”?

Just answer “irrelevant.”

I really don't understand what is going on here.

A person asking questions they have no right or reason to ask, is entitled to nothing.

IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO LIE TO A PERSON ASKING SUCH QUESTIONS.

It is also better that the government and people such as this be kept as misinformed as possible. The less they ACTUALLY know about society, the better. And all responsible citizens have a duty to insure that the government and people like this are kept completely clueless.

Therefore - anyone asking me such questions will need to schedule an appointment with a lung cancer specialists and their proctologist - because they are about to get so much smoke blown up their ass their ears will look like chimneys!

And they are owned nothing more than that. The truth is something you earn. Being lied to six ways from Sunday is also something you earn. And they have earned it.
