In Florida, if someone scares you to death you can legally shoot them to death with your BLEEP. But your
family doctor or pediatrician or health worker cannot legally ask you if a BLEEP is kept in your house or how
it is stored.
Apparently even thinking about the risk of unsecured BLEEPs to their children’s and visitors’ safety threatens
parents’ and patients’ right to keep BLEEPs anywhere and any way they want. This BLEEP has been Florida law
since 2011. (The part that made asking about BLEEPs a felony with jail time and a $5 Million fine did not pass).
Physicians groups challenged the law. It was upheld as constitutional in Florida since BLEEP ownership and safety
is a private matter unrelated to medical care.
BLEEPs and tobacco are the only products on the market that when used correctly kill people; BLEEPS kill lots
of people, often children, in a seconds. So BLEEPS can’t be a private matter.

Safety Checklist for a Crawler:
else- or the owner- is injured by the patients’ BLEEPs. Then
taxpayers fund emergency response and medical care for totally
preventable horrific injury or death, and related court costs,
increased insurance premiums, and lost contributions to society.
And we live in fear…. Oh, I see, if you live in fear - get a BLEEP.
The Texas legislature entertained a similar gag rule this month.
