Doctors Against Gun Control

Second Opinion

Second Opinion

Well, well.

We talked before about doctors pushing gun control.

But now a major medical journal is taking the exact opposite view:

Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons: Guns Do Not Cause Crime, People Do

“A major fallacy in the analogy between motor-vehicle crashes and shootings is that crashes are almost always accidental, and shootings are almost always intentional. Thus, in the former, the safety characteristics of cars and roads are highly pertinent, whereas in the latter the issue is why a shooter decides to pull the trigger.”

The article also calls out the AMA (American Medical Association) and ACP (American College of Physicians) as having “fashioned gun violence as a “health problem” rather than a “crime problem.” In so doing, they have avoided the real causes of violence and to pursue federal funding for research from an advocacy perspective.”

Read the whole thing.
