Matching Patients With Gun-Friendly Doctors

Many of us are fortunate to have doctors that don't pry into things that have absolutely nothing to do with treating us.  Some are not so fortunate.  Several years ago Florida passed a law preventing doctors from asking patients about whether they have firearms in the home.  Pro-rights legislators in Virginia attempted to pass a similar law several years ago with no success.   Recently, the Florida law was overturned by a circuit court decision.  Yesterday, Dr. Robert Young Executive Director of Doctors for Responsible Gun Ownership appeared on to discuss the organization's new referral service for people who want a gun-friendly doctor. is now recruiting pro-Second Amendment health care providers. Dr. Young says that it is a project that has been years in the making. They are issuing a call to anyone in healthcare who would like to participate. The circuit court decision against Florida’s Firearm Owners’ Privacy Act showed that it was time to act.
