    My son had to go to the doctors to get his shot, while waiting in the room the nurse tells my son to fill out something. I glance over just to read some of the questions and I see a question " Are there guns in your home?? Now why would that question be asked?

    Because the government wants to know who has what. And while this is a doctors office, the government is trying to start running the health care system, so that will give them access to the info. I guess I could answer no, since I don't live in a home, I live in an apartment, lol! Or just answer no because it's none of their business, has nothing to do with my health. I can understand them asking if you go in with depression and sucidal thoughts, but not for a shot!

    You will know why when Children's Services come by and remove your son from a "dangerous" home environment . . .

    Obamacare is the culprit, Socialist health care is just the beginning... Beware.

    Damn, I told my son before "nobody needs to know that I have firearms". I didnt want to make a big fuss in front of the doctor so I didn't say anything. But I did repeat myself to my son when we left the doctors office...

    Snopes is a leftest "leaning" site. They are not known to be super truthful.

    Few years ago wife had mis carriage. Hospital asked her if she was carrying a gun. Nurse was shocked when we said yes. Guess no one had said that yet and policy for them was new. They let me take it back to my car and lock up though a security guard walked me out to door but not to car. Never asked me if I had one but I locked if up just the same.

    So your saying that Snopes and the BLAZE made up that there are these clauses within the ACA that protect firearms ownership?

    Cause I can find you any number of reverences on both sides of the debate that mention them being there.

    Don't get me wrong I can't stand the ACA but to blame it for something its not is a waste of better directed energy.

    And you actually believe that this administration will adhere to the laws? They have not been able to do that since he got elected. He lies repeatedly and America can not trust him any further than they can throw him!!!

    Some Doctors are activists, they want to go do their little crusades instead of heal. People need to learn, take politics out of healthcare. It's too important to be a political battleground.

    I never said I believe anything. What I pointed out is that while this practice may in fact be going on its not due to Obama Care. So instead of blaming something that isn't the cause how about working to find the actual source.
