24. That reasoning has some merit, but I would need more data on it.

However, what if you applied that reasoning to another example of when a Dr. is compelled to notify government about a patient?

If you have a child that turns up with bruises or cuts that are totally accidental or that could otherwise be possibly explained, CPS is going to be notified immediately. And if your child isn't old enough to give their side of the story, CPS can take them and charge you. I know this, because it happened to somebody my family is close with, and they are about to get a large settlement for it.

Do you believe that Drs. shouldn't notify CPS over possible abuse, since that probably deters child abusers from taking their children to for appointments? Should teachers stop reporting suspected abuse, because parents might hold the kids from school?

More study needs to be done on the red-flagging for guns by doctors. Not giving the Dr. the ability to completely remove your 2nd amendment rights, just allowing them to cause some extra diligence before allowing them to purchase a weapon.
