Then why do my VA doctors and nurses keep asking me if “there are any firearms in the home” which is none of their GD business? Is it only in New York that this applies?

Take a Clintonian view.

You are in a hospital.
You have no gun there.
Home is where the heart is.
Ergo you have no guns in the home.

A perfectly correct answer.

A dear friend has severe service related conditions and, if he lost his job, would be eligible for full military benefits. He is already recorded as having PTSD. They cannot take away his medical benefits. But, if he ever needs his pension, his PTSD diagnosis means his guns are gone, as are those of his wife, so he has just decided he will have to forgo something he more than earned. He hunts & fishes to feed his family and always has. There is pressure at his workplace, so he is already applying for oilfield jobs in North Dakota and Texas. Given his physical conditions, he should not do that sort of heavy labor, but he may have no choice.

It is disgusting.

At my last check up the Doctor asked me this, “The VA requires me to ask, are you Homeless or might you be Homeless in the near future.”

I told him it might be possible if my kids throw me out of one of the houses I own. Never been asked about guns, I would lie anyway.
