I don't think this is new. In MA, the gun question is part of the standard set of questions doctors ask everyone when they select a new primary. Granted, it's only one question and not several like what the VA seems to be doing. "Do you have firearms in the house?", followed by "Do you have any pets in the house?". Neither of which I felt was their business. I asked the doctor why he was asking these questions and the response was because the data was for the insurance companies working with the HMOs. I don't think he was lying to me, but at the same time I don't think he knew for sure either.
