But then brady and such grabbed that and added gun murder into the mix as a injury and death issue.



    CDC also study injury and death prevention.



    There have been gun related studies since this ammendment was enacted. Where they could collect facts etc and present them to congress. to help congress shape laws. But the research could not be biased (which is why the ammendment was emplaced.). like only reporting injuries and deaths but failing to report all the instances where the guns saved a life or more in a defensive action.

    problem is the folks that were submitting studies to CDC for funding where demonstrating pre-bias and was aiming for a very anti gun outcome rather than going where the facts take you both for and against or inconclusive..

    More lies about the doctor's concers with suicide. More and more, states and doctors are enacting laws and programs to help people commit suicide. The only objection most doctors have to suicide is that it's not Doctor Assisted suicide - in other words, they want their cut of the action. Maybe doctors could start selling handgun ammunition, making up for the loss of Walmart as a source, and then they would be fully supportive of handguns for suicide.

    Doctors enacting laws? I've worked with doctors of laws, but that described their degree level.

    You really like to twist things. He said, "from a doctor's perspective." I simply pointed out the hypocrisy of the doctors perspective and added in the hypocrisy of the state legislatures and other liberals who support a right to commit suicide. Don't twist words. It makes your posts incredible.

    That's a great sentiment, OP, keep in mind that less than 5% of all gun owners will even pony up the dough to join the NRA.

    And here lies part of our problem. The NRA is, by no means, perfect, they have been know to make some dicey mistakes, but it remains at the forefront of our fight to retain our guns rights, and so other gun groups such as GOA etc. We, gun people, need to come together to defend our rights or we WILL lose them, one way to do so is to join the organizations that fights for our 2nd amendment rights such as the NRA, GOA, etc. but, what I see is gun owners who simply have decided that there is no need to become members, being their argument as cost, "I am a hunter, so I do not care if a law is passed outlaying handguns", "I do not use a silencer therefore is no need for me to joint", etc, etc, etc.
    Anti-gun laws affect ALL of us, hunters, competition shooters, self defense advocates, etc. We all need to become members of gun groups to support their effort to fight against onerous gun laws.

    I am a life member of the NRA, and would like to join some other groups, what is preventing me from joining, has to do with cost, I am in a fix income situation and every penny counts, but, at this time, I am making a budget to try to become a member of GOA. If every gun owner in America were to be a member, I would guaranty that politician will think twice before they enact anti-gun laws.
