Welcome back everybody it is 9:40 am so glad you're sticking with us some checking out all your comments on and -- promised -- doctor Marc Siegel who always shows up and makes his house call on time today by -- dot.
No worries -- understand -- -- aren't stories of the train and out that Henry Hudson is that it was Sony.
Want to -- is here in New York City today we're glad you could be with us hey Dylan.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- It's it's very bad -- -- lucky to get here on time that you revenue -- at foxnews.com in the opinion section.
That really caught our eye and the question is whether or not doctors can ask patients if they have -- this is this.
It whether they're bringing the gun to the offense or whether they're keeping it at home -- intrigue tell us more.
Bill that's under very complicated question and the more I think about it the more I agree -- -- -- huge question.
Beautiful little tropical port -- well what government can do what Doctor -- do what's patient privacy.
The state of Florida -- is we're sky outside is about to pass a law that -- doctors are not allowed.
Desperation do they have done it's not about people bringing guns to be offered -- about what we believe and all the -- and the American pediatric association a -- -- -- -- -- What about good situation before about children playing accidentally with guns in that deal with a terrible accident.
Which occurred you know it's fairly commonly I think that that's the report so I -- they're concluding in the peace.
That though it may be an invasion of privacy aspect questions the wrong -- -- the wrong time.
And ending up on the side that they should not be a law that forbids doctors get asked this question.
-- You couldn't disagree.
And I'll tell you why because then.
And that's okay it's -- were free to disagree.
Because then -- have to ask will -- keep -- content in the house to maybe you're young child's gonna get into the menacing cabinet do you have -- cleaning supplies locked up I could see it being important to the protection it took them but there are many responsible gun owners out there what does that have to do you go on to the doctor with a sore throat.
I get nervous when you do as a group you know -- to go.
-- -- you're extremely smart and great lawyer in addition to a very close.
The -- And -- -- worked.
-- -- -- -- I don't think -- appropriate.
Question should be I think that in the piece it's not -- little we're gonna look like.
Doctors asking what vegetables can believe what their sexual proclivities are any picture but to start putting laundry and -- -- big questions that may sometimes be appropriate.
Even your political Nazi content may be times when I think yes that course you know it's hot it's another from a pediatrician and I -- there's a precocious kid.
They get millions and everywhere I might last year in -- -- suggested by the way it's don't have day in Serbia so we're just -- BO patient privacy the patient doesn't have to answer the question I don't think doctor should Willy -- say you have a gun every -- that that they are being killed there.
Think if there's got to be -- -- person for personal sixty reasons why that question could be on the books are just don't want it to be illegal to ask your.
-- just -- that really puts in perspective for me so you're saying doctors would have -- responsibly.
-- would have do you would hope me aid.
A reason to ask about a gun in the house.
It's not that weather right used to treat you or not if I don't believe in guns because you haven't gotten.
And that's you know that you're making -- great point that maybe the reason there's a problem in order which is this is a little lot of control of this is a political matter and I'm sure the gun lobby cargo like my position on this -- I think the doctor has to justify what they're asking the question should they don't think they have they ethics violation shouldn't be asking questions that are.
Violations of privacy but there's already laws on the books -- protect patients from that.
I don't wanna really restricted to the boy I can't do it if it's medically appropriate like you can just -- you should.
Because the other questions that you said maybe shouldn't be asked.
Or you would prefer not to ask about what vegetables you having your refrigerator or -- you know what sort of sexual activity you engage in those seem to meet relevant medically.
And then -- -- -- they aren't sometimes art and requested vegetables and the example we could and should probably.
Always know what we're flexible during the bush era where the actual have a -- -- suggesting that -- -- -- what -- but.
But the question here is -- here is that employers or is this.
-- -- -- -- It's a great topic for me because we didn't really think what are their doctors are entitled to know.
And then there's is that can assure you that the -- update cancer and I concluding the peace.
That they should never actually aspiration only just can't do what they -- there was pistons could always have -- you know they don't have to answer questions.
Doctors have to make sure they're asking questions that are that are for the political certification.
Like Tony has a question for you and if you're driving and you know that you can't talk much longer that we understand but I I want to ask -- why the governor of Florida doing this now.
That's a good question -- The interest probably why the better question is why is that house in the vicinity and implored already passed this.
You know I think the governor is being at a position decided he didn't this year -- I think -- the -- -- -- because the club these are.
Putting pressure on the on the idea that it -- a good gun control legislation is what is.
And you know I don't I haven't seen in the -- a lot of stories about doctors invading privacy for doing this -- more just the issue of -- to nobody's business to license them and then nobody can ask you about -- I think that's the nature of the kind of because -- been -- unlike terrain here what you -- doctor Lois and it's.
And before you go I want you tell me about the book and how -- statement Tony has a question why is one of them from doctor Siegel let's suppose the patient dozens of the questions is yes thank you haven't done.
As a medical professional what are you supposed to do that information I guess what's I -- -- knowing SA.
You know law enforcement question.
If you think that a doctor.
Needs to know then I think that law enforcement should be called in and take that extra step -- legally have a gun in your keeping it safe clean your home why what does -- doctor.
What do you and -- have that information I am more when you have the information.
That's great question regarding the character is is that pediatricians are up in -- because they want.
To make sure that their safety precautions in place so that kids are not accidentally playing with guns.
But the lobby that -- -- -- -- record yeah associations are open arms -- Other point of view is there a danger from the -- it felt like a good looks mentally unstable from a psychiatric point of view.
But -- you'd you'd have to be a psychiatrist treating a patient.
Then they even though they have the -- and you're gonna you're gonna do something look at -- and they might be an issue regarding blood horseradish I think that this truck which you don't child protection issue it's a much more common problem.
And much more relevant -- -- this discussion I'm not saying it's a stretch.
About what doctors do about their obligation under state law.
-- to turn in people think almost startled to assure.
Right or suicidal.
Get out of there but roommates.
