Florida Outlaws Doctors educating parents about gun safety - The Florida state legislature has passed a bill that would make it illegal for pediatricians and other physicians to ask patients or their parents whether they have guns in their home.Pediatricians often ask the question at initial well-child visits as a platform to discuss how to safely store guns in the home in order to prevent accidental shootings.But under the law -- expected to be signed soon by Florida's governor -- doctors would face a $500 fine for inquiring about gun ownership and recording it in a patient's medical record. That fine would increase if a physician asked about guns at more than one visit.

WTF? My daughter's doc asked the same thing, I didn't think anything of it. It's a valid question, as the child's health and safety is the pediatrician's foremost concern.
