1st and 2nd Amendments clash in ‘Docs v. Glocks’

A Florida law that prohibited doctors from talking to patients about firearms was overturned Feb. 16. The 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the law violated doctors’ freedom of speech. Medical professionals and organizations sued the state of Florida over the provisions underlined in the Firearms Owners’ Privacy Act. The case, Wollschlaeger v. Governor of Florida, is known as “Docs v. Glocks.”
