Fla. appeals ruling voiding 'Docs vs. Glocks' law

Looks like the anti-gunners are at it again in Florida.  Still trying to get a defacto gun registration though by stealth. 

MIAMI (AP) - Florida officials are appealing a federal judge's ruling striking down a Florida law that restricted doctors from talking with patients about gun ownership.

Gov. Rick Scott announced the appeal Monday. U.S. District Judge Marcia Cooke ruled earlier this month in the case known as "Docs vs. Glocks." Cooke agreed with physicians who contended the law violates free speech rights.

The state will take its case to the Atlanta-based 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Scott says he believes the law is constitutional and will continue to defend it.

Florida's Republican-controlled Legislature adopted the Firearm Owners' Privacy Act in 2011 after an Ocala couple complained that a doctor had asked them about guns. The couple says they refused to answer and the physician refused to see them again.

  1. He refused to see them for not answering a question? Outrageous! Floridians - This doctor should be boycotted! When he looses all his patients, maybe he'll see what an intrusion into their lives it really is!

    And hey, there is no law making it illegal to lie to a doctor!
