NRA wants adoption agencies to drop gun ownership questions
By Marc Caputo | The Miami Herald
The National Rifle Association is pushing legislation to ban adoption agencies from asking potential parents if they have guns and ammunition in the home.
NRA lobbyist Marion Hammer said adoption agencies are violating gun-owners' rights by asking about firearms in an adoption form. She said any request about gun ownership from an agency connected with government was tantamount to establishing a gun registry.
"Gun registration is illegal in Florida," Hammer said. "An adoption agency has no right to subvert the privacy rights of gun owners."
The issue flared up in Brevard County where a gun-owning couple took umbrage at a request from the Children's Home Society that they disclose if they had firearms before adopting a child.
The couple complained to a lawyer, who called Hammer. She said it would be easier to change the law rather than sue.
A spokeswoman for the Children's Home Society, Liz Bruner, said the agency asks about guns because it is required to by the Department of Children & Families.

Gun ownership is a constitutionally protected right.
Adoption is NOT!
Those who want guns, have them. And they have that RIGHT. But they then do not have a right to adopt, as no one does and mothers who are making selections in open adoptions have every right to ask any screening question they chose. They have a right to discriminate against unmarried couples, or couples not practicing a religion of their choice. The agencies that represent those mothers have the same rights because adoption is all about the best interests of the child, not gun owners!
NRA = NO RIGHT to ADOPT
