    My last Dr. & I talked guns each time I visited. He was a shooter and a reloader. He understood when I asked about including lead testing as part of my annual physical.
    I was upset when I found out he'd moved on to another job. Getting a good Doc at the military hospital/medical hobby shop can be a hit or miss proposition.
    They don't all have an anti-gun agenda.

    I will tell him it isn't any of his concern. Then I will get another doctor.

    I think I might have been wearing a Ruger t-shirt last time. He asked if I owned firearms, I replied yes and we went off to the next question on the check list. No anti-gun rants or going into details.

    I will politely ask my doctor how that question is relevant to my current visit.

    Unless they provide a really good answer, my next response will be that what kind of property I own is none of their business unless it has a direct impact on their current diagnosis.

    You are not compelled to answer their questions. Though if it were important or relevant I would.

    If they're combining mental data, and putting into the background check, then why does a doctor have to ask that question?

    For that matter, when did doctors become an agent of the federal government.

    The only thing a doctor should disclose to the federal government, is if you show up with some highly contagious disease. I can understand that, because some dude in Texas who took a hunting trip to Zimbabwe, could potentially wipe out New York if the CDC doesn't find out.

    But guns?... Really?....

    Well, since if he (or she, depending on which of my docs) is examining me, my CCW is either on my belt, or on top of the pile of clothes, so they are already pretty aware of the answer to THAT question. And they are both shooters and hunters.

    It is more likely to be "Did I tell you that I got that Browning we had been talking about?" or "Wanna go shoot some clays next weekend?"

    If you have a Doc you are not comfortable with in ALL circumstances- you need another Doc. No, really.

    I will tell them NO, I do not.

    I sat my two sons down when I got home last night and explained the new rules the president has blessed us with (to the best of my knowledge). I informed them that if anyone (including, doctors, teachers, cops, friend's parents) ever asks them if their are fire arms in the home, the only right answer is "NO".

    Why would your doctor ask you how many firearms you have. ? The gun laws are strict in the uk but the doctor woldent ask you how many firearms you had.

    QFT. This is why I followed my doctor to his new office when he left the last one he was with. He is one of only 3 compotent ex-Navy doctors I have ever dealt with, and he is as much of a gun nut and hunter as I am. My wife and I both go to him for the same reason C3 goes to his.
