Don't Ask About Guns

In Virginia it may soon become illegal for pediatricians to ask parents about gun ownership or provide unsolicited counsel to parents on gun safety. Is this for real?

I am for broad gun ownership protections but this has nothing to do with firearm rights. This has to do with free speech protections and the fact that guns really do cause injuries, none of which are more tragic than when it involves a child.

If gun owners with children are really that offended they should find new pediatric care or new insurance that allows them to choose another pediatrician.
