Rick "America's Worst Governor" Scott: sacrificing the 1st Amendment on the altar of the 2nd.

The Plan to Muzzle Doctors Over Guns | Mother Jones

Doctors have long been permitted to ask patients about other risk factors, like smoking and drinking (and patients, of course, have long had the freedom to lie about their bad habits). But asking about guns is different, say backers of the law, which could cost offending doctors their medical licenses and a $10,000 fine.
Hey, Floridians, doctors aren't trying to take your guns away; they are trying to make you aware of the risk factor you have brought into your home. They'll probably put it much more delicately than the facts warrant: if you are a parent that keeps a gun the same house as your child, you are an irresponsible, dangerously ignorant parent.

Funny, isn't it, how these same clowns who pretend to be so concerned about a "government takeover of health care" are the ones most in favor of the government taking over health care and preventing doctors from having open and honest conversations with their patients?
