To clarify one issue, and a question Mike Irwin asked: a VA physician or administrator CANNOT disqualify your eligibility for care if you refuse to answer a question. You have no legal obligation to answer a question on firearms ownership during a medical history inside the VA or out of it. A VA patient's eligibility for care is assessed on several criteria which together assign a priority level. The criteria do not include answering questions such as those identified. OTOH, financial status can be related to priority, so you may have to reveal fiscal status - but not gun ownership.
