  •  it's completely fucking unnnecesary, and just (0+ / 0-)

    rewards the paranoia-spouting bullshit that was out there.  It's as if I insisted that a No Funds Will Be Used to Conduct Prayers rider be inserted in a highway bill. And a defense contracting bill. And a healthcare bill.

    It's completely pointless, and indulges the batshit crazy among us.

      did you read what I wrote?
      I was interrogated about guns when I sought treatment for insomnia.
      It's not paranoid. It happened to me.
      Sorry if that doesn't fit your narrative.

      And I'd have gotten away with it, too, if it hadn't been for those meddling kids.(-7.88/-7.23)

        Yes, that seems foolish to me.
        OTOH, You refused to answer and weren't arrested or anything.

        I'm not sure what this language is aimed at, the quote says "Health and wellness programs",  but either it wouldn't forbid the doctor asking about guns in your case or it would forbid it in cases where it might be more appropriate: someone talking about suicidal feelings for example. (And yes, there are other ways to commit suicide, but guns are perceived to be easy and convenient.)

        The Empire never ended.

          if a person discloses suicidal feelings, you move into a zone like the one covered in California under 5150 W&I and the rules change dramatically, and health care professionals are mandated reporters.

          And I'd have gotten away with it, too, if it hadn't been for those meddling kids.(-7.88/-7.23)
