    Well, it's the limitations of the data that can be obtained. They can cross reference gunshot wounds with gun owners or show increased prevalence of injuries from gun shots with increased gun ownership. Both of these are gun control fodder.

    What they don't collect, what the CDC will not collect, is data concerning the use of firearms that saved someone's life (e.g. protecting one's self from a home intruder). The data collected can only be used to show gun ownership in a bad light.

    I dig through medical records all the time. Trust me, they are a long way from being organized anywhere near well enough to link addresses, names and gun ownership. And there's an easy way to avoid getting onto some feared "registry" of medical records--don't tell the doctor about your firearms.

    part of my last conversation with my doctor was what I needed to do to be more healthy for hunting season. we discussed my needs and he could infer from the conversation that i had guns. i don't really care, neither did he.

    the .gov knows i own guns; i apply for a hunting license every year, i have a carry permit and have purchased guns through a ffl. i think everybody is giving .gov too much credit, they aren't that good at what they do, take a look at the state of .gov affairs after all.

    I only ask patients to see if they have they same hobby as me. That is how i found most of my shooting buddies. IMHO the "gubbement" does not have the right to such information:p.

    If my doctor asks me questions about about firearms, I will simply tell him/her that the questions are irrelevant. If the doctor states that he/she is required by federal law, then I will say that there is no law. Obama`s EO is of no effect and not law.
    Then I will tell him/her that I am finding another doctor that will not ask questions about my guns. We must push the doctors not to comply. And there are a lot of doctors already saying they will not comply.
