GPs to monitor mental health of all patients who own guns

Comment

not sure why they are saying that we need to collect it from now. also I am a little concerned that we should inform police if someone with a gun develops depression. I think thas we should risk assess this as we do in normality in asking about suicidal or homicidal tendencies. It may create a barrier to seeking help for gun owners which in my view is even more damaging to the patient. - anonymous salaried!
