Censorship is quite the stretch. It simply isn't anyone's business. If they ask about every other dangerous implement that has or will injure or kill someone perhaps it wouldn't rub any the wrong way. But selective questioning is agenda driven. Firearms aren't even in the top 5. http://realestate.msn.com/article.aspx... Actually 0.02 per 100,000 http://www.childdeathreview.org/nationalchild... but the agenda says...

Asking about swimming lessons , pool alarms , pool fencing and gates , placement of household chemicals , safety gates on steps , bicycle and off road helmets all would lead to more children's lives saved then the leftist political popular gun questions.

It is going to be a long doctors visit.

That can be changed with the stroke of a pen.

The answer is to get government out of the doctors office completely and getting rid of Obama care is the most important priority to achieve this.
