US ban on gun warnings branded 'scary'

Florida Governor Rick Scott this week said his government was appealing a court ruling to defend his state’s controversial ‘Docs vs Glocks’ law which makes it illegal for doctors to ask patients if they own guns.

“This law was carefully crafted to respect the First Amendment while ensuring a patient’s constitutional right to own or possess a firearm without discrimination,” Mr Scott said in a statement.

“I signed this legislation into law because I believe it is constitutional and I will continue to defend it.”
