Do You Own a Gun?

Rate this post

I received this email from a trusted friend who forwarded it from her trusted friend.   I have no idea if it’s the God’s honest truth or urban legend.  It’s vitally important to verify the information.  

Fact of Fiction?

 Do you have a gun in your House?

When I had my gangrenous gallbladder taken out and spent an overnight stay which should have been 10 days if the insurance company had not kicked me out. I had a home nurse visits for two weeks and was asked if I had guns in the house. I responded that if I did I would not tell them. So the below has some merit.

FYI, I am passing this along…there are comments from two other people who have also been asked if we keep guns in the house. The nurse just kinda slipped it in along with all the other regular questions. I told her I refused to answer because it was against the law to ask.

Everyone, whether you have guns or not, should give a neutral answer so they have no idea who does and who doesn’t. My doctor asked me if I had guns in my house and also if any were loaded. I, of course, answered yes to both questions. Then he asked why I kept a loaded gun close to my bed. I answered that my son, who is a certified gun instructor and also works for Homeland Security, advised me that an unloaded, locked up gun is no protection against criminal attack.

The Government now requires these questions be asked of people on Medicare, and probably everyone else.

Just passing this along for your information: I had to visit a doctor other than my regular doctor when my doctor was on vacation.. One of the questions on the form I had to fill out was: Do you have any guns in your house?? My answer was None of your damn business!!

So it is out there! It is either an insurance issue or government intervention. Either way, it is out there and the second the government gets into your medical records (as they want to under Obamacare) it will become a major issue and will ultimately result in lock and load!!

Please pass this on to all the other retired guys and gun owners…Thanks, from a Vietnam Vet and retired Police Officer: I had a doctors appointment at the local VA clinic yesterday and found out something very interesting that I would like to pass along. While going through triage before seeing the doctor, I was asked at the end of the exam, three questions:1. Did I feel stressed? 2. Did I feel threatened? 3. Did I feel
like doing harm to someone?

The nurse then informed me, that if I had answered yes to any of the questions, I would have lost my concealed carry permit as it would have gone into my medical records and the VA would have reported it to Homeland Security.

Looks like they are going after the vets first. Other gun people like retired law enforcement will probably be next. Then when they go after the civilians, what argument will they have? Be forewarned and be aware. The Obama administration has gone on record as considering veterans and gun owners potential terrorists. Whether you are a gun owner, veteran or not, YOU’VE BEEN WARNED !

If you know veterans and gun owners, please pass this on to them. Be very cautious about what you say and to whom.

  1. I will ask hubby, but I beieve the gun issue is asked in medicare evals. I do know that they have to ask if you have unsecured area rugs in your home!! WTH does the government need to know this for? I have seen the forms, but I cannot remember the other stupid questions.

  2. Unsecured area rugs? Maybe they think there may be a trap door that opens to a hidden hiding place–what other reason could there possibly be? God only knows.

  3. LTG,

    Last year, the Florida state legislature introduced a Privacy of Firearms Owners bill, CS/CS/HB 155. The bill “Provides that licensed practitioner or facility may not record firearm ownership information in patient’s medical record; provides exception; provides that unless information is relevant to patient’s medical care or safety or safety of others, inquiries regarding firearm ownership or possession should not be made; provides exception for EMTS & paramedics; provides that patient may decline to provide information regarding ownership or possession of firearms….”

    I believe that physicians, especially psychiatrists, should be able to ask about a patient’s firearms — if the patient is severely mentally ill, e.g., schizophrenic, depressive, or bi-polar. For that matter, such individuals should not own guns. Period.

    • Watch, they’re just declare being a veteran, white male and/or conservative a “concerning” condition.

  4. Interesting. I’m going to ask my dad if he’s ever been asked this questions.

    Heck, my niece came home from grade school one time with a “survey” that asked if there were guns in the house.

  5. I have never been asked this question, but if I were, I would say no.


  6. Oh, Hell no! I refuse to answer that question. I was asked that question once at a VA clinic when I had my 40 year physical exam by an Army Reserve doctor (9 years ago). At the time, I felt uncomfortable with it. Regretably, I answered yes. Never again! I would rather give up my future military retirement and VA benefits before I answer that again.

    • We were recently having our 15 year old son updating his immunizations and the nurse asked him if we had guns in the house; being in Texas, we said none of your business. He was also asked how many times a week do we eat at a fast food restaurant…Big brother and mother Michelle is everywhere. God help us.

  7. Reblogged this on The Freedom Fighter and commented:
    So Snopes says it isn’t true that Medicare is required to ask about gun ownership. That doesn’t mean they can’t or won’t ask. I warned about this issue of doctors spying on us for the government in an article I wrote in March 2012.

  8. Although I don’t have time to check it out right now also try he is better than snopes…

  9. Looks like the left-wing radical Obama Clinton Version of 1984 has started to be implemeted.

  10. Just love that healthcare reform… death panels for old folks, being asked whether you have any guns.
