I have not been asked this question, but if I were, my answer would be:  "Well, no, there are no guns in my house. I am wearing all of them right now."

A Dr. asked me the question once and my reply was "Does your wife like it in the butt?" I could tell I shocked him and I followed up with "Too personal? Well, that has about as much relevance to our business here today as whether I have guns in the house."

He never asked a second time.

I would reply in my most irritated voice "none of your damn business".

Pokey, my answer would be "no Agent Asshole, I no longer own any of the 250+ guns I have bought in the past 40 years"

If I have to explain what Durham County, NC is, you won't understand.. 8)


Ooo, Ooo, Ooo, Mr. Kotter I know.  Durham County, NC .  That's where the Ruby Ridge incident........no, that's in Northern Idaho.

It was the David Koresh and the Branch Dividians..........no, that was outside Waco, Texas.

I'm confused.  What significance is DurhamCounty, NC?

I do not know who, if anybody, is having the Medical people ask this question.  I have been hospitalized 3 times this year at two different hospitals because I keep having heart attacks.  I have been asked that at both different hospitals, it was on one of the insurance forms and the cardiac rehab place wanted to know.  The place that did my stress test wanted to know if I was a hunter, police officer or in the military. I just told them "no".  That is my short slang for "no I will not answer that question"
Yep, still riding the old one

That question is on the questionare I fill out at my annual physical each year. My doctor says its the insurance company that wants to know. He is an avid hunter and shooter like the rest of us and doesn't like it, but the insurance company reguires it for a physical. I always leave it blank.

It has to do with laws concerning domestic violence. Theres all sorts of forms and paperwoork that needs done when a patients checks into a hoospital. Some docs ask as part of their protocols, some insurance companies ask, etc... They ask questions to all patients about if they feel threatened, do they live alone, are they afraid to go back home, does anybody want to hurt them and so on, the gun question is included as part of the law passed. Not sure if its part of a grand plan, I'm sure folks who want could glean info off it, but as always deny, deny,deny.

Maybe I'm a glass is half full guy.  Many of us don't give humanity enough credit.  If our economy crashed, or a physical disaster strikes most people would strap up their boots and pull together, not apart.  I for one will not live my life in a constant state of fear, if the big meteor is about to render us extinct I'll be watching it come in my lawn chair with a beer in one hand and a fine cigar in the other.

I put little faith and trust in mankind, and who that has posted lives in a constant state of fear?

I think that's generally true. All went fairly well in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. Some couldn't get fuel for their generators on the second(?) day though. What if it was longer? A larger area damaged?

. . .and there will be more disasters like Sandy or probably even worse.  I have no issue with being prepared.  I'm prepared.  Being ready for short term disaster is everyone's responsibility, but burying guns ??  I guess if this gives you peace of mind. . .you go guy.  Perhaps I'm turning this string to the South, but the level of paranoia in this country created by the media and internet has gone out of control. 

" kumbya" . . ."horsemen" really??   :deadhorse:
