    The Obama administration will use information from doctors to make a national database of gun owners


    Doctors do not have to ask patients about guns in their home

    The Obama administration’s January 2013 summary of its executive actions to prevent gun violence makes no mention of requiring doctors to collect information about gun owners. In fact, Kaiser Health News reported in 2012:

    The 2010 federal health law doesn't prevent doctors from asking about guns, but it does prohibit insurers, employers and the secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services from asking about gun ownership in many instances, and it prohibits HHS from collecting such data.
