    This is a copy of a E-mail sent to me And I thought every one should see it. Thanks

    Subject: FYI -- Very important!

    This is a retired Police officer with the Texas Highway Patrol...........

    “If you know veterans and gun owners, please pass this on to them. Be very
    cautious about what you say and to whom. "
    I am passing this along...there are comments from two other people I have also
    been asked if we keep guns in the house. The nurse just kinda slipped it in
    along with all the other regular questions. I told her I refused to answer
    because it was against the law to ask. Everyone, whether you have guns or not,
    should give a neutral answer so they have no idea who does and who doesn't.

    My doctor asked me if I had guns in my house and also if any were loaded. I ,
    of course, answered yes to both questions.
    Then he asked why I kept a loaded gun close to my bed. I answered that my son,
    who is a certified gun instructor and
    also works for Homeland Security, advised me that an unloaded, locked up gun is
    no protection against criminal attack.
    The Government now requires these questions be asked of people on Medicare, and
    probably everyone else.

    Just passing this along for your information:
    I had to visit a doctor other than my regular doctor when my doctor was on
    vacation. One of the questions on the form I had to fill out was: Do you have
    any guns in your house?? My answer was None of your damn business!! So it is
    out there!

    It is either an insurance issue or government intervention. Either way, it is
    out there and the second the government gets into your medical records (As they
    want to under Obamacare) it will become a major issue and will ultimately result
    in lock and load!!

    Please pass this on to all the other retired guys and gun owners...Thanks

    From a Vietnam Vet and retired Police Officer:

    I had a doctors appointment at the local VA clinic yesterday and found out
    something very interesting that I would like to pass along.

    While going through triage before seeing the doctor, I was asked at the end of
    the exam, three questions:

    1. Did I feel stressed?
    2. Did I feel threatened?
    3. Did I feel like doing harm to someone?

    The nurse then informed me, that if I had answered yes to any of the questions,
    I would have lost my concealed carry permit as it would have gone into my
    medical records and the VA would have reported it to Homeland Security.

    Looks like they are going after the vets first. Other gun people like retired
    law enforcement will probably be next. Then when they go after the civilians,
    what argument will they have?

    Be forewarned and be aware. The Obama administration has gone on record as
    considering veterans and gun owners potential terrorists. Whether you are a gun
    owner veteran or not, YOU’VE BEEN WARNED!!!!!

    If you know veterans and gun owners, please pass this on to them. Be very
    cautious about what you say and to whom.

    Hmmmmm.....Like many things in the gun world, I reckon there's a bit of truth mixed in with a ton of paranoia in this case. How many people here actually believe a CCW would be revoked on the basis of someone acknowledging stress? I don't doubt that questions concerning gun ownership are becoming more common in the medical field, and i agree that its of no concern to them. However, this goes beyond that with the nurse's alleged statements concerning stress and/or feeling threatened as grounds for immediate CCW revocation. Too, how can a FEDERAL entity revoke a state issued permit? Theres ways of making the person "prohibited" but that's not the same as an instant revocation of one's right to carry

    So, we have the VA email rumor from three years ago: http://www.truthorfiction.com/rumors/v/va-test-permit.htm

    With a new bit tacked on that is either from a "retired Police officer with the Texas Highway Patrol" or "someone on vacation going to not their regular doctor" or "someone in a hospital in Florida".

    Also, if you're going to mindlessly cut-and-paste, at least take a few moments to pretty up the formatting.

    Anyone with credible information can PM me or another mod to get this reopened.

    This is the type of obvious nonsense that forces me to route email from some people to my spam box. Of course, this type of chain letter acts as its own benign "virus" clogging email boxes and taking up bandwidth in sending. Clear signs of most "warning" chain letters are paranoia, poor writing, and asking to forward the letter on to everyone and their grandmother.
