According to this guy, we're all suffering from a social disease here at Gunway. What do you think?
Haha well they want to lock us all up anyway so at least by this guy's method our rooms will be padded. We are just a bunch of silly sociopathic patriots aren't we?
Sensationalistic. His colleagues should laugh in his face for trying to call something so statistically insignificant a pandemic. Hey, Doc... If you are seriously looking to save society from numerous deaths and bodily harm, there are certainly much bigger fish to fry. Automobiles? Hello? Is this thing on?
You know what's a really social disease? Doctors who think they're god.
I think there are also stats out there that show that Drs kill more people than guns do.
He's just confused. He doesn't understand guns and violence, and so naturally he tries to make the "problem" fit into a familiar paradigm. Kinda like the saying, "if all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail." Of course he thinks it's a disease.
Sprinkle with Obamacare 3 times daily for 10 days. Solved.
This guy is making me look bad. It's not just him. I can't believe how many of my fellow graduate students, who are pretty high IQ, come to retarded conclusions like this.
We are taught to understand logical fallacies, to FALSIFY our hypotheses, understand causal relationships, go beyond correlation and understand mechanism of action.
We would get destroyed if we came to dumbass conclusions like this when writing manuscripts. But somehow that critical thinking is lost when discussing "scawey guns!" and any other idiotic, leftist craptrap.
This may rank up there with the most ignorant things I've ever heard.
This disease is called cranial rectumitus. It's the overwhelming desire to put ones head up their butt when confronted with common sense. It's aka progressive liberalism.
Drunk driving kills more people a year than guns, so does texting and driving...should be ban car use, make cell phones illegal and bring back Prohibition? They would never hear of it! So why are we picking on guns? Ignorance!
I guess everyone with a hobby is suffering from a social disease. What a stupid ***hole. Like most doctors he doesn't have any idea what he's talking about.
Could an admin delete those? I have no idea why it posted that many times.
I concur CCRider. It is a classic case of rectal cranial inversion.The worst part is I don't think you could have a reasonable argument with this guy. His line of reasoning is too far out there.
What a CROCK! I couldn't even read it all. I am sick of these a-holes and all thier social diseases. Its lame, every time some lunitic does something its not there fault, its a disease or societies fault. NO ITS NOT! I enjoy shooting and its not a disease and I am offended that he can even say that!
A social disease... Does that mean if we take some penicillin, we are good to go?
15 leading causes of death in the U.S. in 2010, per the CDC website. "Assault" in general, let alone by gun, didn't make the list this year, it was 15th the year before. Looks like our good Doctor needs to look toward himself for an answer!!!
1. Diseases of heart
2. Malignant neoplasms
3. Chronic lower respiratory diseases
4. Cerebrovascular diseases
5. Accidents (unintentional injuries)
6. Alzheimer's disease
7. Diabetes mellitus
8. Nephritis, nephrotic syndrome and nephrosis
9. Influenza and pneumonia
10. Intentional self-harm (suicide)
12. Chronic liver disease and cirrhosis
13. Essential hypertension and hypertensive renal disease
14. Parkinson's disease
15. Pneumonitis due to solids and liquids
Ironic that the medical profession (from which he comes) in fact failed to "stop" the Colorado tragedy...that guy was ID'd as having problems and they either did not or could not do something about it. If Doc suggests that we need more ranges and in those ranges more training and education for CC permit holders. That'd work for me. More people carrying more competently?!? Who's in? Just read The 7 Things You Must Know Before You Draw Your Gun. Next on the list is Glock The rise of America's Gun (though I don't love Glocks).
