Don't Be Shocked When Your Doctor Asks About Guns
The Rush Limbaugh Show ^ | November 19, 2013 | Rush Limbaugh

Posted on 11/20/2013 5:10:09 PM PST by Tolerance Sucks Rocks

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Jesse, somewhere in Texas. I have one minute, but I wanted to get to you. Hi.

CALLER: Hi, Rush. Mega Air Force brat dittos.

RUSH: Thank you.

CALLER: I wanted to call and let you know that I'm working in health care. I'm actually a comptroller for a hospital, but I'd heard rumors this was happening. My wife last week had a family doctor appointment with an OBGYN, and one or two of the mandatory questions she was asked is, "Do you own a gun in your house, and do you keep it loaded in your house?" They would not register her as a patient until she answered that question.

RUSH: Now, you had heard that was coming, but you didn't know it was real until yesterday?

CALLER: Well, 'til last week when my wife had that appointment.

RUSH: Last week.

CALLER: She came home and I was shocked.

RUSH: You were shocked, even though you had heard about it before?

CALLER: I heard rumors, but I was like, "There's no way a health care provider is going to ask that kind of question."

RUSH: Unless they are mandated to by the federal government.

CALLER: Well, and I figure it's part of Obamacare, but just the sheer fact that they asked the question and they wouldn't even let her register as a patient until she answered the question blew my mind.

RUSH: Right. Well, that's the tip of the iceberg of the things that they're gonna know about everybody who signs up.

My niece is a pediatric nurse and she's told me that it's SOP to ask this question at her hospital...a teaching hospital of a major medical school.

"Do you own a gun in your house....

Of course not - guns are scary and evil.

They’ll get their registry, one way or the other.

BTW, “None of your damn business” gets marked down as “yes”.

And that is why I will never say none of your biz, just a simple NO. My wife knows this as well. According to big brothercare, we have no guns.

“None of your damn business”

I'm going with "I don't want to spoil the surpise."

"...And my doctor should not be suprised when I tell her it's none of her G-damn business."

In which case the doctor will just put down "yes" - guns in the home. The only answer to give is NO. Period.

I was asked that question 5-6 years ago. My PCP, a friend and former customer of my now-closed Family Farm Business for 22yrs and I shoot together, monthly, so he put a ‘NO’ on the answer block.

Just lie and say NO.

I went to a local urgent care facility to see a doctor last year. I had to fill out the typical personal information forms, and there was a questionare that asked if I own a gun, or if guns are kept in the house. There were other non medical questions such as asking if we had a swimming pool at home and other silly questions.

I answered all the questions "N/A" to that and drew a single line from corner to corner on that page. I only answered the other forms that asked about insurance, medical questions, billing etc.

I was glad they didnt demand I answer the questions, but wonder how many people filled out answers to those questions.

Nope. No Firearms.

No pens or paper either.

I completely have given up on the Bill of Rights.

Feel better Doc that your income monitored?

How you going to pay off that student loan? Going to owe your soul to the company store?

And remember that, because of HIPAA, your entire medical file, including any information that could be used against you, can now be accessed by a multitude of government authorities, federal, state and local.

This is especially important if you have ever taken any pharmaceutical drug that can be considered psychoactive, including drugs given to children for ADHD (attention deficit), antidepressants (the most widely prescribed pharma), etc. Also importantly, you may not have been prescribed these drugs for *years* or even *decades*, but they may be used as an excuse to confiscate guns.

All told, perhaps 80% or more of Americans could be *disallowed* from purchasing or owning guns because at some point they took a medically prescribed drug.

NO profanity, NO personal attacks, NO racism or violence in posts.

Does that have any meaning to you?
