    The AMA Moves Left on Guns and Suicide
    It now supports an "assault weapons" ban and refuses to condemn physician-assisted suicide.
    Jun. 13, 2018

    …"Meanwhile, the AMA throwing its weight behind a ban on “assault weapons,” along with support for other limits to Americans’ Second Amendment rights, is a huge win for the anti-gun lobby. That’s especially true if the gun-grabbers can now make the argument that the AMA says guns are bad for one’s health."...

    …"On the issue of physician-assisted suicide, the real ethical problem is two-fold. First, it puts a patient in a vulnerable position for risk of coercion, mistakes and even abuse (obviously with no opportunity for correction). Second, it has the potential to put a doctor on the hook legally speaking to perform a physician-assisted suicide even if they oppose the practice on ethical or religious grounds."...

    A couple of my doctors have hinted about gun issues and ownership and I think I’m being interrogated slowly.

    I have been asked if there are guns in my home. I answer honestly. I don't care. I also believe I have the right to assisted suicide if and when the time may come that I get certain diagnoses from my doctors. The two are not mutually exclusive.

    Pain management doctors tell me if I pop hot for THC they will drop me? Oops, too bad big boy. Because I just fired your dumb ass. Wait?? You wanna talk?? Nope, too late. You have extra time for that patient in the next room now.

    I am what my PCP calls a compliant non-compliant patient. Treat me like an adult and I will do the same with you. This is MY medical care and I will make my own informed decisions, thank you. Last time I checked there were LOTS of doctors in the phone book.

    Bottom line is don't start no ****, won't be no ****.

    Well I’m not going to ask my mechanic for medical advice just like I’m not going to ask my doctor for advice about guns.

    I have been counseled about not telling my VA Doctor that I have guns in the home by some other vets.
    My VA Dr at the Blackwell clinic broke the ice when I told him I farm and he does too, then it progressed to hunting and guns.
    Now we talk guns/hunting seasons while the exam is going on and for a short time after occasionally if he has time to chat.

    I'm sorry what does a 1911 have to do with my gout? Ask me questions about things that relate to my health...Fine.
    Ask me about what I own? Kiss my butt.
