"If you like your gun, you can keep your gun" is definitely not anything you'll be hearing from President Obama soon.
You may never have thought that a simple visit to the doctor could lead to the FBI breathing down your neck, but the president's new executive actions on gun control could lead to just that, mortally wounding the long-established presumption of doctor-patient confidentiality.
