App matches patients with 2nd Amendment supporting doctors

There’s been a great deal of talk lately about whether doctors in the United States should be asking patients questions about gun ownership, a practice that began getting attention around the time the Obama administration was working to declare the firearm ownership a public health crisis. If you want to make sure your doctor sticks to actual health-related topics, this app could be for you.

Bob Livingston wrote about the problem of doctors asking questions about gun ownership back in 2013:

Just because your physician asks a question doesn’t mean you have to answer.

Some questions doctors ask, either through their patient questionnaires or during examination, relate to whether there are unsecured guns in the home or about domestic partners and violence. The question about guns was introduced in the Affordable Healthcare Act, aka Obamacare. The question about domestic violence — which typically asks whether the patient is in a relationship in which he or she has been physically hurt by or is afraid of his or her partner — was introduced by Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius.

Answering affirmative to either of these questions could lead to gun confiscation, as is going on now in New York. That State has seen government functionaries rifling through patient medical records and comparing them with gun purchase or concealed carry permit records. Guns are then being confiscated under the State’s draconian gun laws.
