There are some new developments in the case of the Florida law passed to prevent doctors from asking their patients about guns.
The physician groups suing to block a new Florida law that bans doctors from asking patients about guns in their homes asked a federal judge in Miami Friday for an injunction to block enforcement of the law.
Some people, even Second Amendment supporters, have called this law an affront to the First Amendment.
We at YankeeGunNuts see this law as the natural backlash that happens when the public is victimized by an overreaching organization that has overstepped its bounds and is trying to infringe on other people’s rights. The doctors do not want to give up their anti-gun agenda. This latest delaying tactic is like the tantrums that the leftists and union thugs in Wisconsin are throwing right now.
Just read the comments to the article:
“The primary motivator is the American Academy of Pediatrics. They are in favor of a complete ban on personal ownership of firearms and up until 3/9/2011, when they replaced it with a less overt message, their website stated the following:
‘Where We Stand: Gun Safety
The most effective way to prevent firearm-related injury to children is to keep guns out of homes and communities. The American Academy of Pediatrics strongly supports gun-control legislation. We believe that handguns, deadly air guns, and assault weapons should be banned.
Until handguns are banned, we recommend that handguns and handgun ammunition be regulated, that restrictions be placed on handgun ownership, and that the number of privately owned handguns be reduced. Firearms should be removed from the environments where children live and play, but if they are not, they must be stored locked and unloaded. Loaded firearms and unloaded firearms and ammunition represent a serious danger to children.’
The reasons the law was passed was because:
1. AAP has an anti-gun agenda and encourages its members to follow suit.
2. Doctors have asked patients about gun ownership.
3. Doctors have asked children about gun ownership without parents present.
4. Doctors have recorded patient’s gun ownership information.
5. Doctors have released patient’s gun ownership information to a third party (police) without consent and without cause. (Uxbridge, MA)
6. Doctors have denied service to patients simply because of refusal by patients to reveal gun ownership information. (Ocala, FL)”
The left is clinging desperately to its pet causes. But they are being handed defeat after defeat in the courts and at the ballot box. The internet ensures that the truth gets out. Google cache prevents them from hiding their biases. And they don’t like losing so they throw hissyfits.
If these doctors love gun control so much, why don’t they move to a country that has strict gun control, like Cuba or Mexico? Both countries are in dire need of trained doctors.
