Regarding "It's common sense: Let 'Docs and Glocks' law die" (Other Views, July 21): No matter your stance on this issue, the solution is incredibly simple. Doctors, by definition and oath, are here to try their best to cure or at least relieve any medical condition within their chosen parameters. They can also give sage advice to any conditions they may discover. They, under most circumstances, cannot delve very deeply into your personal life unless, of course, it is by your choice or involves an obvious problem. Therein is the key — your choice. If asked about anything unrelated to your specific reason for allowing their personal probe, just say no. Problem solved. There need not be an issue.
