More nosy doctors who don’t like guns

I’ve noted the phenomenon of Big Nanny pediatricians quizzing parents about whether they own guns before.

The AMA, of course, is notoriously filled with gun-grabbing activists.

Read Shawn shares another example via the Raleigh News and Observer. He e-mails: “No longer satisfied with just making sure the kids are in good health, the doctors now see fit to pry into your personal life to see if you have guns in the home.”

Parents are likely to encounter a different type of question during their children’s health visits at Duke University Health System’s pediatric clinics these days: Do you need a gun lock?
As part of a joint effort by Durham County and Duke, pediatricians are talking to parents not only about the safety of guns in families’ homes but also about safeguards in places where children visit.

“It involves not only asking, ‘Do you have a gun in the house where the child lives?’, but also, ‘What about family members and friends?’ and ‘What about other households where the children may visit or stay during the weekend?'” said Dr. Sara Robert a Duke pediatrician and professor.

If the campaign were limited to merely asking and advising parents about gun safety, that would be one thing.

But the anti-gun doctors’ lobby is much more ambitious. And they make no bones about it.


Meanwhile: There will be a 2nd Amendment rally in Chicago. Don’t tell your pediatrician if you plan on attending…


Here’s an antidote to the anti-gun M.D.’s.

Reader C.M. e-mails: “I have also been asked on a form at my children’s doctor if we have guns in the house, I leave it blank (which probably tells them that I do). If safety is their only concern then why don’t they ask if people have pools in their back yards? We are often told that people are more likely to be shot when there are guns in the house but how often do we hear that there are more likely to be drownings when there is a pool in the back yard? Just wondering.”
