Here's the deal in a nutshell:

Certain HMO's and insurance companies in Florida have been pushing doctor's to inquire about firearms in a patients household. To their credit, many doctor's have either refused to do so, or told their patients that they did not have to answer the question but he had to ask. While others have gleefully jumped on the liberal bandwagon and are asking totally inappropriate questions that are NONE OF THEIR BUSINESS.

This is nothing less than an end-around gun grab.

Senate Bill 432, introduced by Senator Greg Evers (R-2)was heard yesterday, February 22 in the Senate Criminal Justice Committee and PASSED by a vote of 4 to 1.

SB 432
would stop anti-gun doctors from asking children and parents if they own guns and then telling them to get rid of their guns.  It further stops doctors from denying care to children if the parents refuse to answer questions about gun ownership.

This bill is designed to make doctors practice medicine NOT practice gun ban politics in their examination rooms.  As a parent or a patient you have a right to protect your privacy about gun ownership.  How many guns you own and where they are stored is your personal and private information.

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) is pushing its anti-gun agenda of banning and removing guns from homes in Florida.

Voting to uphold the law and the Constitution and to protect your firearms rights were the following:

Senator Greg Evers (R-2)
Senator Charlie Dean (R-3)
Senator Andy Gardiner(R-9)
Senator Chris Smith (D-29)

(Senator Gardiner was substituting for Senator Paula Dockery (R) who had an excused illness.)

Voting against protecting the privacy rights of gun owners:

Senator Gwen Margolis (D-35)

We've been warned, the word is out, and these SOB's aren't going to win. And yes; unfortunately, the majority of political anti-gunners are female and simply know better than the rest of us as to how to raise the kids.
