Own a Gun? Doctor Must Recommend Counseling for you…if Walsh and Santiago get their way…

The NRA posted today the following alert concerning Mass. Democrat Rep. Jon Santiago’s bill to force doctors to ask about guns in your home, and…send you to counseling:

 

House Bill 2005, sponsored by Representative Jon Santiago (D-9th Suffolk), would direct state authorities to create a program for doctors to “screen all patients for the presence of firearms in the home” and would vaguely call for “guidelines for safety counseling for individuals that screen positive for the presence of firearms.” The government would inject itself into the vital doctor-patient relationship. Injecting politics and ideology into this relationship will sow distrust and resentment that could lead to adverse healthcare outcomes for the patient.

Again, please contact committee members and urge them to OPPOSE H.2005. In addition, NRA members and Second Amendment supporters are encouraged to attend the public hearing. Details may be found here and below:
