Marion Hammer, executive director of Unified Sportsmen of Florida and a former National Rifle Association president, said she knows some parents are offended because "a number of them" have complained to her organization. The legislative initiative traces its roots to a publicized fracas last year in which an Ocala-area physician told a couple to find another pediatrician after they refused to disclose whether they had a gun. "You have a right to seek medical care without being interrogated about the private property that you own," Hammer said.
The pending bill in the Florida Legislature would also make it illegal to note a patient's gun ownership status on a medical record.
