My General (Family) doctor retired about 5 years ago. So I located another and had to fill out a New Patient Questionnaire. There it was midway down on the second page . Do you own any firearms? Surprised, Shocked, and just at a loss of how me owning or not owning guns could possibly play any role in my treatment for whatever may ail me at a general doctor. So I'm sitting there filling out paperwork in a crowded waiting room with my primary 9mm at 4:30 and my LCP Gen 2 in my back left pocket. So of course I didn't check either box, I wrote in big bold letters NOYB!!! and underlined it. I was actually there for a annual physical, so I new we would be talking about my guns at some point. So we got to the disrobe part of the visit and I ask where could lay my pistols and the doctor without even blinking just point to a counter to the left. It's not all doctors it's the AMA and they are extremely anti-gun.

Never been asked about guns by doctors.

However I had a rando dude in the checkout line at 7-11 ask me point blank if I was carrying yesterday. I returned a WTH look, he made a "gun" with his index finger and thumb and pointed it at me. I kept him in my FOV, paid for my coffee and GTF out.

I guess an OPSEC reeval is in order to deal with these types of shenanigans. The planet is pretty Fd.

This topic reminds me of a ridiculous flirty question I would ask chicks back in the day. It is hilarious!

Question: How many kids do you got and is your man in jail? hahahhahaha

You would be surprised at the answers received.
You also be surprised at the non-answers received.
Finally, you would be extra surprised when they would get startled, confused, or even a little pissy because you apparently discovered some secret aspect of their life that you somehow knew about hahahahaha.

That ridiculous question would tell me more about a girl than could be logically conceived hahaha.

So if a doctor asks me the same firearm question I know what question I'm replying with hahahaha just gotta replace "man" with "wife/girlfriend" in some cases :mrgreen:
