Is Your Physician Qualified to Advise on Firearm Safety?: In yesterday's Gun Rights Examiner column, we looked at a common practice among many physicians, particularly those associated with HMO/PPOs: Counseling patients who own guns to store them locked and separated from ammunition… Ten years ago or so, I read two articles that defined a unique approach for countering doctors counseling patients on guns,"Risk Management Advice to Physicians and their Insurers: Don't Borrow Trouble,"and "Physicians, Don't Borrow Trouble, Part II". They were written by Joe Horn*, a retired Los Angeles County Deputy Sheriff and risk management consultant. He raised some points that intrigued me… Well, that's an interesting thought to add to the mix. I contacted Joe and asked if I could take his thesis and distill it into a form. He agreed, and working together, this is what we produced… (The only firearm questions my physician asks me is whether he made a wise choice in a purchase.)
