"Attorneys from three physicians' groups threatened Scott with a lawsuit if he signed the measure, saying it would prevent medical professionals from talking to patients about gun safety........"

When did it become a physician's job, duty, or obligation to educate patients about guns or "gun safety"? And how many doctors are qualified in any way to discuss gun safety any more than telling their patients to avoid walking out in front of a bus? There's a lot more to safe handling of firearms and I would not go to a medical practiioner for gun advice anymore than I would go to a firing range to get my tonsils out.

Being antigun should be life-threatening. Ask your doctor.

Anyway, read the new law. It allows doctors too much leeway on the subject. A Judge will fall asleep listening to the new law.

If a doctor discussed gun safety with me it would start an argument.

you have the bill incorrect
the problem was some pediatricians were demanding to know if the parents owned guns and if they refused to answer the children were not taken as patients.
now a Dr has to have a real medical reason to ask the question.
