    New law in Florida passed by a Republican legislature and signed by a Republican Governor prohibits Doctors from asking their patients if they have guns

    Some other Republican state, I forget which one, has a script about abortion that the law dictates Doctors read to their patients

    What in the hell is it a doctor's business whether or not a patient owns a gun?

    Good move Florida.

    That doesn't matter

    It would matter if the question was should doctors ask about guns, but that's not what we're talking about. We're talking about the state coming between the doctor and the patient

    I'm not sure what it is you're talking about. My point is what business is it of my doctor's if I own a gun or not? If this question was being asked in Fla., and an elected office put a stop to it - good on Fla./that elected official.

    Didn't we already have a thread that was pages and pages long and covered every conceivable argument there was?

    fwiw, FL is right as doctors have no special training in firearms.

    In other words it's the governments job to decide what questions your doctor can ask

    How in the hell did you draw that conclusion? It's the governments job to be lawmakers. Seems like they did the right thing in rescinding this idiotic law.

    There's lots of things doctors have no special training in. Are we going to pass laws about them too?
