  •  Doctors are aware of statistics (7+ / 0-)

    Like the statistic that you are more likely to be killed or injured with a gun in the house. Your children are at even more risk:

    A 3-year-old boy in Greenville, South Carolina was shot in the head and killed on Friday after he started playing with a pink handgun because he thought it was a toy.

    •  That's nice. Who cares? (0+ / 0-)

      Nothing compels you to answer a doctor's question.  There is no need for a law to keep him/her from asking.  Just say "None of your damned business."  and move on.

      If your doctor gets testy, you need a new doctor.  If s/he refuses to treat you -- and you need treatment -- you've got a lawsuit in the making.

        Tell all those "Small Government Conservatives" who are passing similar laws all over the US!
