Florida passed the "Firearm Ownership Privacy Act" after an Ocala, FL couple "complained that a doctor had asked them about guns and after they declined to answer refused to see them anymore."
Three doctors sued the state over this law on the grounds that their speech was being limited. The legal battle that ensued came to be known as Docs vs Glocks. The doctors were supported by the ACLU and the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence.
The NRA wanted to support the state but they were "barred by the judge from participating in the lawsuit, as [he] claimed the state was fully capable of defending itself."
The judge ruled:
“The state, through this law, inserts itself in the doctor-patient relationship … prohibiting and burdening speech necessary to the proper practice of preventive medicine, thereby preventing patients from receiving truthful, non-misleading information. … This it cannot do.”
The President of the Brady Center said in a statement:
“Guns in the home are a proven deadly risk … The government cannot tell us or our doctors that we are prohibited from discussing the deadly risks posed by guns.”
