"The bills have passed all committees and the House is expected to vote Tuesday, and the Senate may soon follow.Referred to by the National Rifle Association as the 'Patient's Gun Privacy Rights' legislation, the bills say a health professional cannot ask about gun ownership unless they have a good medical reason, and they may not enter facts about gun ownership into the medical record, 'if the practitioner knows that such information is not relevant to the patient's medical care or safety, or the safety of others.'"
