Court Upholds Florida Law Discouraging Doctors From Asking Patients About Gun Ownership
The 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta has upheld a Florida law that discourages physicians from discussing gun ownership with patients. According to the court, the law does not prohibit asking patients about guns, but only cautions not to do so when it "would be irrelevant to patients' medical care."
