Amazing. That good ole boy Rick Perry has made it into Sidebar twice today. Because:
An outrageous Florida law forbidding doctors to discuss the dangers of gun ownership with their patients was recently struck down by a federal judge. Shockingly, the law, known informally as Docs v. Glocks, was originally passed by the state legislature without any evidence whatsoever supporting the claims made in the NRA-backed bill that doctors were infringing on their patients’ Second Amendment rights by asking if they owned guns.
Rick Perry has announced he will appeal the decision, even though I don’t believe he is legislatively connected to Florida. I mean, Florida has it bad enough with their legislature and their massive-Medicare-fraud-perpetrating governor, Rick Scott. (So maybe the Rick Govs have a sort of deal to support each other? And gee, Rick Perry is kind of — what’s the expression? “doubling down” against doctors and health care. Pretty soon he’ll have driven all doctors and nurses out of Texas but kept all those guns!)
