I think it's fine for a pediatrician or GP to review basic safety measures with new parents: keeping cleaning products out of reach, car
seats, blocking electrical outlets and yes keeping guns locked up.

You would be surprised how uncommon common sense can be.

An adult in the course of an exam, of course not. Though maybe in the case of taking in an elderly parent there should be some sort of similar review.

What do you think?


I think that a family doctor should not act as an instrument of the government but rather as a heath care professional.


The lifestyle choices of the parents are out of bounds.


What do you think ?

US appeals court strikes down Florida law in ‘Docs vs. Glocks’ case


So for the time being at least, doctors still have first amendment rights.

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

A good warning label for guns.


And you are 3 times more likely to be killed by a vehicle accident than by a gun

Oh for heaven's sake. Pediatricians routinely discuss child-proofing the home, especially with first time parents. Don't see the American Chemical Council whining that doctors shouldn't caution parents to lock up the Clorox and Liquid Plumber.

The court did uphold one part of the law, which bars doctors from discriminating against patients solely because they own guns.


So for the time being at least, gun owners still have some rights

I had a physician ask me that several years ago. I told him it was none of his concern. He looked at me strangely, paused and that was that.

I think the concern was that such information was being collected for use by the CDC. And not strictly for health reasons. No one ever asked me if I had a swimming pool, or Venetian blinds with cords.
