If you are going to
Does your doctor or pediatrician really ask your kid about guns around the house, or if you drive safely, or if you wear a bicycle helmet? If he or she does, you need your kid to tell the doctor to mind their own business. Their health is your kid’s and your concern. Nothing else. In an oped piece today, some well informed (yeah, right!!) young lady talks of doctors talking to your kid about gun violence. That’s like the teacher asking your kid if mommy and daddy sleep together. The privacy of the home is at more risk than ever before. That’s it. Let the doc befriend your kid and make you out as the bad troll. Everywhere we look we are losing citizen and parental rights. Tell you what my mom and dad would have done. They would have found a different doctor ….that is after they called the AMA. Thank God for the NRA. Can you imagine what would happen if we didn’t have them? Can you? I can. Read “The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich”. Good lesson to be learned there.
