And thank GOD for the second amendment in America.
Is not a darn business of any doctor to ask such a question to an underage teen.
Plain and simple and NY laws should be stick on Blomberg's mob stinky butt, now, that's an example of a Nazi wanna be with dreams of grandeur.
Why are doctors allowed to ask "do you get good grades in school? Do you get bullied?", as stated in the article? Because there is a good cause to it! Read the whole article.
"According to Insley, Butterly told her the staff began asking such questions in October. This apparently follows a report from the American Academy of Pediatrics published Oct. 18 recommending that pediatricians ask gun questions as part of patient history.
That October report sites firearms as one of the top three killers of American children and reasons that questions about availability of guns would allow medical staff to tell parents to keep guns out of their homes, or at least out of children's reach."edit on 23-1-2013 by ManFromEurope because: (no reason given)

Apparently this is from the Chicago Tribune:
"I felt uneasy, but I stepped out so my son wouldn't be embarrassed," she told me, saying she figured they would ask drug and alcohol questions. Sam doesn't take drugs or alcohol, she said.
Later that day, Sam told her what the doctors had asked him.
"By the way, Mom," she recalled him saying, "when you were out of the room they asked me if we had any guns in the house."
Infuriating, but I can't give you a direct link to the story cause it is a paid editorial.
"Now, with all this gun control legislation (in Illinois), I'm angry for many reasons," she said. "Why are they asking about guns in the hospital? Are they mandated by Obamacare to do so? Can they ask a minor about guns without a parent in the room? I'm really upset."
Advocate spokesman Mike Maggio told us he couldn't discuss this case for privacy reasons, but that gun questions are "not part of our protocol. It is not routine in any way. And it's not a standard practice."
Later Tuesday, Insley said she received a telephone call from Dr. Mark Butterly, head of the hospital's pediatric residency program. She said Butterly told her that it is indeed standard practice.
But you can see the story is there:
So whoever is signed up perhaps can give us a summary if there is anything else.
But I dunno if I want to HEAR anything else. I don't need to hear anything else. This is fricken outrageous, and 2nd amendment rights sure the hell ARE being infringed. This is total BS. They want war. I am convinced of it.
WTF business is it of your damn doctor to be asking that question? There's a fricken CAR in the house right? CARS KILL CHILDREN TOO.
So tell me, Mr. Doctor, you gonna report me for having a God damn CAR now too?
WHERE DOES THIS BS END???
Un fricken believable.

Yo go push your anti-gun agenda somewhere else. Thats why E.U. is one step away from becoming a full blown police state. Remember its because of us Americans and our expertise with dangerous guns why Hitler and the Nazi's didnt take over you punkass euros( remember that always). Its also the main reason The NWO is not completely realized yet. They take Americans guns away the rest of the world better start praying hard even if you are Atheist because at that point we are all done for. The nerve of you people not seeing anything wrong with this. They took your guns first simply because they new you would give them up much easier and a lack of 2nd amendamentedit on 24-1-2013 by beastnwokillah because: (no reason given)edit on 24-1-2013 by beastnwokillah because: (no reason given)edit on 24-1-2013 by beastnwokillah because: spellcheck
I though you might be interested in the definition of interrogation.
1. the technique, practice, or an instance of interrogating
2. a question or query
So, it absolutely, without a doubt was an interrogation. There is zero question of it. You're going to have to try harder, because you're not doing so well.
In the Affordable Care Act, the gun lobby’s section is in Title X, starting on page 2,037, line 23. “Protection of Second Amendment Gun Rights” contains five provisions mostly dedicated to shutting down conversation about guns in medicine. What do these sections contain?
Wellness and prevention programs may not require the disclosure or collection of information relating to the presence or storage of a lawfully possessed firearm or the use of a firearm. At least the law didn’t say we couldn’t ask about it, we just have to do it clandestinely.
The next provision states we can’t collect data related to owning or using firearms. So we can’t write it down? Sounds like an effective way to stifle research related to gun violence so we can no longer prove that easier access to guns increases the risk of mass violence.
Provision three states we can’t use or maintain records of individual ownership or possession of firearms or ammunition. I’m fine with that not being allowed in medicine, but that information should be tracked somewhere. A person amassing an arsenal should raise an eyebrow.
