    He makes Jocylen Elders look sane and she was crazy as a loon.

    He reminds me of Brad Pitt’s character, Jeffrey Goines, in 12 Monkey’s.

    The NRA clearly believes that THEIR interpretation of the Second Amendment (which is out of step with the vast majority of Americans) is entitled to special treatment, including overrunning the FIRST Amendment. They’ve tried to prevent pediatricians from discussing with parents the dangers of keeping guns at home. They’ve managed to block people collecting data on gun deaths — what are they afraid of? They don’t want anyone even DISCUSSING the idea that guns kill people. Period.

    The LA Times explains why Obama’s nominee is a serious threat to our Constitution who must be stopped at any cost.


    “President Obama’s nominee, Dr. Vivek H. Murthy… has called for more stringent gun laws.”


    Anyone who understands Constitutional Law knows that it’s unconstitutional to limit our right to bear arms, so no one who has ever called for more stringent gun laws can possibly be considered for a position as Surgeon General. What kind of physician wants laws that prevent law-abiding citizens from protecting themselves against serious injury by shooting anything and everything they think might possibly be capable of causing them injury? (This includes ageing spouses coming in late, or even on time if they’ve lost those washboard abs..)

    I’m not entirely certain that not wanting it to be mandatory for doctors to collect data on who has guns in their homes is the same as trying to prevent pediatricians from discussing the dangers of gun with parents.
    And, of course, there is no reason to believe that amassing such data is in any way part of some nefarious scheme to locate and confiscate all the guns from the populace in some whacky plan to overthrow the legitimate government at some shadowy future time and disarm the populace before beginning the “revolution” and getting rid of the messy business of allowing conservative thought a place in government.
    No reason at all. Why, that’s ridiculous.

    Despite left fringer morons’ lies, there are more gun owners owning more guns than ever before in America’s history, yet both murder numbers and murder rates are at over 30 year lows and are on track to hit 100 year lows.

    Gun ownership is none of doctors’ business.

    So then you aren’t speaking of the new national health database and the requirement that patients disclose whether they have guns in their homes, but an entirely unrelated issue against which the NRA has no stand?
    Well then how do you intend to make your point?

    It has been proven time and time again that these gun-nuts in their bunkers can’t hold out even against local police for very long. Imagine the FBI or even the military going against them. At that point there will be no more restraint from the government, they’ll use VX gas if needed or outright torch your house and confiscate everything you own, waiting for you to emerge from your stupid little bunker to execute you on the spot. WHAT IS THE POINT?!? The very thing you try to protect you from is – be definition! – the thing that’s going to kill you, no matter what. Spend your time doing something useful instead…

    The money in that bag must be coming from somewhere. Member dues and/or donations?

    @Nantucket19

    I’m not on anybody’s side. I am enjoying an examination of contemporary topics with my contemporaries. The NRA is suggesting a national mental health database as a step to meet the needs of those who use the ability of the mentally ill to acquire weapons as a lever to move the issue of gun control in a desired direction.
    Personally, I don’t see how any of these proposed measures toward gun control will change the availability of black market weapons, except to make them more lucrative. Were I a criminal, I would be fighting for stringent gun control to open up the market for new import opportunities.

    @MortyForTyrant

    It has been proven time and again that if it didn’t bother anybody, then nobody would be fighting to control it.
    Fighting to disarm them by means of pen and paper is less risky than manual force, but so very time consuming that I fear that those whose objectives require a subjugated and dependent populace are beginning to lose patience, on the presumption that they exist, of course.

    It doesn’t require any great intelligence to recognize that a tool meant for killing is a health risk. That is, after all, its purpose. The matter in question is whether it is better to allow too much power in the hands of random strangers, which historically has resulted in the deaths of hundreds of people every year, or to allow too much power in the hands of the government, which when given such power has been historically known to kill millions in a short span of years, as well as generally oppressing, depressing and disenfranchising the subject populace under its unrestrained dominion.
    The long view of history favors one more than the other. I leave it to you to reason which is preferable.
