It's now illegal for doctors to ask about the role guns may have played in their patient's gunshot wounds. Thank you NRA/Repubs/Morons.
 


A court ruling upholding a Florida law that discourages doctors from asking patients about gun ownership is stoking alarm among some medical professionals, who view such questions as part of basic patient care.
 
Last Friday, in a 2-1 ruling, the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta reversed a federal judge in Miami, who struck down the law in 2012 saying that the statute infringed on doctors' free-speech rights.
 
The two-judge majority found that the main purpose of the law, signed by Florida Gov. Rick Scott in 2011, isn't to regulate speech, but to improve the quality of medical care.
 
The law, the court said, doesn't ban doctors from asking patients about guns, but only cautions against it "when doing so would be irrelevant to patients' medical care."

Lie. (2 of them in the same sentence).

 

#1 - it's not illegal, your own post says as much.

#2 - all gunshot wounds are questioned by medical personnel and law enforcement.

 

Funny, with all the gun control losses mounting and adding up the grabnuts are so desperate they'll post anything ("The NRA Is Hiding Under My Bed!!!)

 

Meanwhile, gun rights continue to advance forward.

More doctors should be asking the questions not less.

Do you think it's appropriate for a doctor, during a routine exam, to ask if there are guns in the home ?

2nd amendment beats the 1st, wow.

Don't get your panties in a bunch.

 

The 1st and 2nd are equally important.

Doctors are responsible for healthcare. They have no business asking about gun ownership. That is as it should be.

I draw the line at giving doctor's diagrams of the house, the alarm code and the locations marked with an X.

Statistics show that a gun in the home can be hazardous to your health.

A good warning label for guns.

A chainsaw could be hazardous to your health. Neither chainsaws nor guns are inhaled, consumed, or otherwise introduced into the body through normal use.

Statistics say that a lot of people die in car accidents. Do doctors ask about their patient's driving habits?

They don't. It's not their business, nor are they experts in curtailing aggressive driving behavior. Same with guns. As it should be.
