"Apparently, every day several children are injured or killed in gun accidents. Then there's a lot of households with mentally ill people. I think it's a good idea for doctors to give advice on the topic of gun safety AT LEAST in cases where someone in the household is potentially psychotic. "

And of course, doctors should also talk about 'car safety, save driving, staying below the speed limit, not tail gating..since dozens of kids are killed each day in car accidents.

Oh, and getting on and off school buses..where kids are injured all the time.

Plus, playing with toys........or being in the kitchen and reaching for pot handles, or getting to sharp knives...

yes.....let's waste the doctors time on trivial stuff....... let's make them squeal to the feds as to which homes have firearms so when it comes time for the gov't to confiscate them, it knows where all of them are. Let's use the docs to compile gun ownership records.......NOT!
