    You’re visiting your doctor because you have flu symptoms. After checking your heart, pulse and other vital signs, your doctor turns to you and asks, “By the way, the federal government has authorized me to ask you, What type and how many guns do you have in your home?"

    Sounds like George Orwell’s "1984"?

    Wrong.

    It’s 2013. And if President Barack Obama gets his way by executive order, doctors across the country could play a key role in his new gun control initiative.

    Is it? Suppose a doctor had asked Timothy McVeigh or Terry Nichols that question.

    Does not prohibit is not the same thing as "MUST" is it?

    I figured the Nutter's would jump on that. Now that their lie of "Obama is coming to get your guns" has been revealed, they've got to find SOMETHING to spin into a threat to keep the adrenaline pumping through the veins of their few remaining supporters.

    It's not gun control. I agree it's federal overreach, but you don't have to get stupid about it.

    I don't know? Would you?

    See...this is just another indication that it's all much ado about nothing. The President's whole "program," like the "tough" gun laws in New York, is just a sop to the emotionally charged moment in the aftermath of Newtown.

    It's nothing substantive and little more than a reaction to the cry that "something must be done!" That's just politics in action and not a threat to anything.

    It could have been much, much worse.

    Seems to me this will cause people who own guns that are slightly unstable to not seek help in fear of losing there guns and destabilize further.

    I was saying the point of the OP was stupid.

    Who cares what a doctor asks you?

    You have no legal responsibility to tell them what guns you have, and there is no punishment for not telling them.
