Newsmax Fearmongers About Obama's Executive Actions on Guns
Topic: Newsmax

Newsmax's Jim Meyers turns up the fearmongering over President Obama's executive actions on gun regulations in a Jan. 16 article:

You’re visiting a doctor because you have flu symptoms. After checking your heart, pulse and other vital signs, the doctor says, “By the way, the federal government has authorized me to ask you: What type and how many guns do you have in your home?"

Sound like George Orwell’s 1984?

No. It’s 2013.

And if President Barack Obama gets his way by executive order, doctors across the country could play a key role in his new gun control initiative.

In fact, Obama's executive action does not require doctors to ask patients about guns, nor does it require doctors to report gun owners to law enforcement.

Newsmax promoted Meyers' story on its front page with this misleading graphic:

Not even Meyer offers any evidence to back up the suggestion that doctors will turn children into snitches against their parents.
