Why do they ask that question? I haven't been to see a doctor recently but I will be going in the next three months or so. I don't understand what our gun ownership has to do with our medical health. Though I must say owning firearms has improved my mental health.

Give it time.
At some point firearms ownership will be considered a disorder or deviant behavior. Or at the very least, some sort of household hazard...like smoking.

I had to check the box no last week...

"Is there a firearm in your home?"

the doctor came in later and asked me why i had declined to answer the question. i asked him the same question as i had the nurse. he kind of got all huffy and upset with me. i informed him my ailment had nothing to do with them knowing whether i owned or how many firearms i owned.

this is even happening in smaller towns from what i am seeing. we were discussing it at work a few days later and it was not an isolated event. several others had had the same questions asked of them as well at the doctors office. hmmmmm.........
About a year ago I took my son to the doctor for a before school check up, doc comes in and gives him a look over checks the eyes, ears and so on. He then starts asking the normal health questions, and without skipping a beat he asks if there are guns in the house? I ask him what that has to do with health care?? He said as doctor he is responsible for the health and well being of his patients, and guns in the home could be considered a health risk. I laughed and told him that if there were guns in the house they would pose no more health risk to my son than the 2 five gallon gas cans in my garage. I then asked him why he didn't ask about any flammable liquids in the home or if there was any asbestos in the home?? He just looked at me blankly.

I haven't been to a doctor in a couple of years, but the last time I was there they asked me if " I felt safe in my home" I simply said yes and did not mention that I have several firearms and a backhoe, and it would be an intruder who should not feel safe.

My brother is a doctor, I think I will shoot him an email and ask about this question.

I believe this is a domestic violence question.

Winds,

It is a focus and deceptive program trying to be implemented by the Government through the Federal Center of Disease Control. For what ever in the H they should be involved in information involving our Second Amendment. They would like to mask it under the pretense of domestic violence and other purposes. I could see it if we have a person living in our household who is there for mental illness issues. Maybe to assure the patient did not have access to the weapons like in the Sandy Hook incident! But as the Nurse friend of mine stated, most of the medical health people think it is for other purposes. What a better way to collect the information as to the location of weapons in the public. Moral of the story one can answer it with "I choose not to answer it because it is a Constitutional violation of my privacy!" That is what they advised. But Damn I liked the "Well how much money do you have in your purse or wallet!" I can only imagine the look and reaction! That was "Absolutely GREAT"!

I believe that's probably right. I was asked something similar to that once when I had a few large bruises from a motorcycle accident.

I shot a nail into my hand with a framing nail gun. Wife drove me, and she's wearing shorts with the bruise the size of her entire thigh from a water skiing fall.

Medical staff kept us separated for awhile... Didn't dawn on either one of us what was going on until we shared the questions we were getting asked... We still laugh about it
