Too bad the assholes at Gawker and the Post-Journal already did their damage.

Now my f’ing doctor ask me if I had any guns in my house. I ask him why he would want to know that, and he said the Guv’mit makes him ask. I wonder how many straight answers he gets.

The courts balked at releasing the records because it is New York City, where the only people who get gun permits are the well connected. Can’t let the peasants see who is armed in the city.

^Alan (2) ,
My doc asked that on my first medicare physical, and I declined to answer. I’ve since stopped taking Medicare physicals, and get the same tests by complaining of certain ailments in a timely fashion.

If the NY Times is shot down asking for gun data, is it a gun crime?

Yeah, my Doc asked me if I owned a gun. I replied truthfully,”No, I do not own a gun.”
“I’m sorry doctor, but since the government has seen fit to turn the medical profession into proxy political snoops, I cannot answer *any* questions not directly related to the complaint I’m seeing you about today.”
The problem with the gun question is that if you even so much as bat an eye when they ask, they will assume that no matter what comes out of your mouth, the answer is “yes”, and if you say “no” they’ll mark you down as a liar.
This is the United States of America. Where all are guilt until proven guilty (unless you are black, then you are innocent until proven innocent)

I notice that their problem is funding.
Money wouldn’t be a problem, if they sold the confiscated firearms to non-prohibited citizens.
Or the Feds could buy ‘em and give ‘em to those who can’t afford guns.
You know, Obamaguns.
Hey, think of it as “redistribution.”
