The story is that a bill has been proposed that would make it illegal, in fact extremely illegal, like "$5 million or face up to five years in jail" illegal, for a doctor to ask his patient about guns in the home.
Now I ask you, is that about the craziest thing you've ever heard, or what?Sponsored by Rep. Jason Brodeur, R-Sanford, the bill would make it a felony for a physician or staff member to ask patients or family members of patients if they own guns or store guns at home.
If found guilty, the medical provider could be fined up to $5 million or face up to five years in jail.
Marion Hammer, executive director of United Sportsmen of Florida and a former national NRA president, said the gun rights groups have no opposition to a physician's office handing out brochures on gun safety, but the direct questioning on whether there are guns in the home of a patient and how they store them goes too far.
"Simply, it's none of their business," Hammer said.
