Florida House Bill 155, introduced by Jason Brodeur, would bar doctors and other medical providers from asking patients, or the parents of patients, whether they have guns in their homes. Cam Edwards speaks with Dr. Timothy Wheeler of Doctors for Responsible Gun Ownership who explains that these "gun inquiry" policies began in the early 1990s and evolved into an effort by doctors to try and convince patients with guns to get rid of their guns. At that point, Wheeler says, the policy definitely has nothing to do with safety, but with politics, and that is what doctors call "an ethical boundary violation." Originally aired 1/12/2011.
