Do you have gun in the house?
GOOD TO KNOW!
When I had my gangrene gallbladder taken out and spent 10 days in the hospital for what should have been an overnight stay, the insurance company kicked me out. I had home nurse visits for two weeks and was asked if I had guns in the house. I respond that if I did I would not tell them. So the below has some merit.
FYI, I am passing this along... there are comments from two other people I have also been asked if we keep guns in the house. The nurse just kinda slipped it in along with all the other regular questions. I told her I refused to answer because it was against the law to ask.
Everyone, whether you have guns or not, should give a neutral answer so they have no idea who does and who doesn't. My doctor asked me if I had guns in my house and also if any were loaded. I, of course, answered yes to both questions. Then he asked why I kept a loaded gun close to my bed. I answered that my son, who is a certified gun instructor and also works for Homeland Security, advised me that an unloaded, locked up gun is no protection against criminal attack.
The Government now requires these questions be asked of people on Medicare, and probably everyone else.
Just passing this along for your information: I had to visit a doctor other than my regular doctor when my doctor was on vacation.. One of the questions on the form I had to fill out was: Do you have any guns in your house?? My answer was None of your business!!
So it is out there! It is either an insurance issue or government intervention. Either way, it is out there and the second the government gets into your medical records (as they want to under Obamacare) it will become a major issue and will ultimately result in lock and load!!
Please pass this on to all the other retired guys and gun owners... Thanks, from a Vietnam Vet and retired Police Officer: I had a doctor's appointment at the local VA clinic yesterday and found out something very interesting that I would like to pass along. While going through triage before seeing the doctor, I was asked at the end of the exam, three questions: 1. Did I feel stressed? 2. Did I feel threatened? 3. Did I feel like doing harm to someone?
The nurse then informed me that if I had answered yes to any of the questions I would have lost my concealed carry permit as it would have gone into my medical records and the VA would have reported it to Homeland Security.
Looks like they are going after the vets first. Other gun people like retired law enforcement will probably be next. Then when they go after the civilians, what argument will they have? Be forewarned and be aware. The Obama administration has gone on record as considering veterans and gun owners potential terrorists. Whether you are a gun owner, veteran or not, YOU'VE BEEN WARNED !
If you know veterans and gun owners, please pass this on to them. Be very cautious about what you say and to whom.
Scream “Asking me about my gun is homophobic!”
Try figuring out what that means and then learn what
‘Subject to the Jurisdiction’ means
“This is my weapon, THIS is my ‘gun’, one is for shooting,....”
What does “valid” have to do with the kenyan?
When the Executor of the laws and the Chief LEO themselves are breaking the laws, and giving a wink and a nod to their supporters to go ahead and break the law,all bets are off. We have entered an age of universal criminality and we had better be prepared to handle it.
Those who go through life believing what they see on TV are in for a rude awakening one of these days.
"Snort"...great response...reminds me of the show Dexter
more and more doctor forms are asking for this info, like any other info that is not related to my health care I simply skip over it.
In the last 5 mos I’ve filled out more health forms than I can count. Not one of them asked for this info.
These doctors need to be reminded of the 200,000 people who die every year in America because of medical mistakes and incompetence.
“No, there’s nobody named Gus living at my house.”
“I often have fun in my house.”
“No, no buns. No wigs, no women’s things whatsoever.”
“A nun? No, I am not Catholic.”
“No, it wouldn’t be wise to run inside my house.”
Always say no. You can always claim that, at the time, they were in the garage or storage shed. And if for some reason the authorities find you have them in your house, you have a plausible denial.
Every time the wife or I go to the doctor we carry a folded copy of this notice and will answer those questions by handing this to the doctor.
(1) WELLNESS AND PREVENTION PROGRAMS.A wellness and health promotion activity implemented under subsection (a)(1)(D) may not require the disclosure or collection of any information relating to
(A) the presence or storage of a lawfully-possessed firearm or ammunition in the residence or on the property of an individual; or
(B) the lawful use, possession, or storage of a firearm or ammunition by an individual.
(2) LIMITATION ON DATA COLLECTION.None of the authorities provided to the Secretary under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act or an amendment made by that Act shall be construed to authorize or may be used for the collection of any information relating to
(A) the lawful ownership or possession of a firearm or ammunition;
(B) the lawful use of a firearm or ammunition; or
(C) the lawful storage of a firearm or ammunition.
Yep, as is the origination of this thread.....we're on Medicare and both the wife and I have had several hospital/medical type things in the past 18 months....and never been asked anything about weapons.
I don't know why people make this sh*t up.
The question about feeling “stressed” is a dangerous trick question. Let’s say you wake up one fine morning and find blood in your urine and become very stressed because it could mean any of several kinds of cancer. Not wanting to die, you get a doctor’s appointment to have it checked out. The average, intelligent person will be very stressed until he learns what’s causing the problem. Indeed, the usual physical is a stressful event. I suspect most people who go to a doctor feel rather stressed, otherwise they’d not be going.
That’s the kind of conversation I always have with my doctor. He and I are competing to see which of us can make this a more gun saturated country.
I use caller iD all the time. If the call isn’t properly identified, it goes to the answering machine.
I have a similar answer to the smoking question. “No I don’t, but do you think it would relieve the pain?”
I think an ouright NO! is the correct and moral response.
Our first obligation to to our family.
Country is next.
Since, at the present time, the second conflicts with the first, it is moral to do what is need to protect the family.
