If you picked #4, “murder,” you’re right. The first three are medical diseases. In contrast “murder” is not a medical problem, although it is a tragic cause of death. But in recent years, anti-gun organizations (and some physicians) are seeking to blur this distinction by declaring “gun violence” to be a “public health” problem.
Like many physicians, I’ve seen numerous unfortunate gun-related injuries and deaths over the years. I understand the perspective of fellow physicians who are appalled by gun violence. After the 2012 Sandy Hook murders, ER physician Dr. David Newman wrote a moving piece for the New York Times entitled, “At the ER, Bearing Witness to Gun Violence.” He recounted tragic tales of innocent children injured by firearms. He called gun violence an “American epidemic” that posed a “threat to public health.” Dr. Newman also declared, “I have sworn an oath to heal and to protect humans. Guns, invented to maim and destroy, are my natural enemy.”
Sen. Eleanor Sobel, D-Hollywood, said she opposed the bill because foreign laws have never been implemented in Florida courts or any other state.Gee, and you suppose that just because it hasn't been done, it won't? Wake up and smell the stuff you're shoveling, senator. I would think that you'd want to make sure that women and children are protected, even from the possibility of something like that happening. Sheesh. This law will hopefully, keep things from changing. We don't want foreign laws followed here. This is the United States of America, not the Islamic Republic of America.
Monday, May 19, 2014 DURHAM, N.C. (WTVD) -- Police are searching for three suspects involved in an armed robbery at Durham's newly-opened barbecue restaurant, The Pit, at 321 W. Geer Street.Amazing, isn't it. The owner puts a "No Firearms Allowed" sign in the door, and criminals have the audacity to ignore it. That's just horrible. Maybe Moms Demand Action should do something about it. Hold a demonstration outside, demanding that the evil doers stay away from this business, and not bring their guns the next time they intend to rob the place. Yeah, I'm sure that will keep them away.
Authorities said just before 9 p.m. Sunday, three men wearing hoodies entered the restaurant through the back doors with pistols, and forced several staff members to lie on the floor.
The bandits assaulted two employees during the crime, but they were not seriously injured.
"They're doing great," restaurant owner Greg Hatem said. "One of them actually went to the hospital and was released. They took a good look at him, he's fine."
Hatem also said there were a few patrons in the dining room while the robbery was happening in the kitchen area. Workers were able to ask them to leave, and got them out safely through the front door.
"We're offering $2,000 for the arrest and conviction of these guys," Hatem said. "We take this very seriously. We want to make sure our guests and our staff are taken care of."
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call CrimeStoppers at (919) 683-1200.

I say this based on several discoveries. First, they have apparently made their money by attacking every other major pro-gun group. Like SAF, NRA and others. Most recently, Alan Gotlieb of SAF has been their victim. Unfortunately for NAGR, SAF is not taking it sitting down. From SAF's response to the latest attack.
In his latest effort to raise money for his own self-aggrandizement, Dudley Brown has launched a vicious canard against Alan Gottlieb, accusing the veteran gun rights advocate of “Leading the fight for national gun registration.”
Alan Gottlieb has never advocated for gun registration in his life. His legislative efforts have been to prevent that, and Dudley knows it.
Sean Tonner, deputy chief of staff for former Republican Colorado Gov. Bill Owens, was quoted by The Denver Magazine, asserting, “All Dudley wanted to do was create controversy. He makes his money when there’s turmoil, real or perceived, because that’s what gets his members to write him checks.”And this is just their latest attack on a major pro gun organization. It makes me wonder, perhaps Mr. Brown is a sheep in wolves clothing. Someone from the left, trying to look like he's from the right, in an effort to sow discord amongst gun owners and those that actually fight for our right to keep and bear arms.
WHERE WAS DUDLEY?
The Second Amendment Foundation has championed gun rights legal actions and won in federal courts and the U.S. Supreme Court. Remember, it was SAF that took McDonald v. City of Chicago to the Supreme Court and won. Where was Dudley?
SAF and CCRKBA have conducted the annual Gun Rights Policy Conference for more than 25 years, bringing together major gun rights leaders with grassroots activists to unify and expand the gun rights movement. Where was Dudley?
When SAF and the National Rifle Association joined forces to stop the unconstitutional gun grab in New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina, where was Dudley?
When SAF and NRA joined forces to defeat the San Francisco gun ban, where was Dudley?
When SAF, NRA and CCRKBA joined forces to defeat the City of Seattle’s parks gun ban – thus strengthening state preemption in Washington state and providing a lesson for anyone who might challenge other states’ preemption laws, where was Dudley?
When the International Association for the Protection of Civilian Arms Rights (IAPCAR) was created, Alan Gottlieb was there to help bring together an organization that now has member groups from every continent and several nations. Where was Dudley?
When multi-national gun rights organizations gather in Europe to resist global gun control efforts, Alan Gottlieb is there, but where is Dudley?Even before this, there is a message thread on Gunbroker dot com's forum about his activities. And that is 4 years old. Whatever you do, don't send your money to this guy. He doesn't make a living protecting your 2nd amendment rights. He does it by attacking other pro 2nd amendment organizations. Don't let him get away with his smear tactics.
As high school seniors near graduation, they very often pull senior pranks. One young man in Colorado, however, was suspended from school and banned from graduation because of his prank. The incident caused no damage to the school and was pretty harmless. But, the visual of what he did angered his high school principal so much that she immediately lost it and went on a rampage. His prank? Raising the freedom representing Gadsden flag on the school’s flagpole.If you want to read the entire article, click on the link at the top.
I have to wonder, if this would be going on, IF NYC didn't have such strict gun control laws. Mayor Bloomberg would have everyone believe that only the police and the military need firearms. Yet, Gays are getting pounded on more often now, than in the recent past.

Democrat’s ‘Universal Background Check’ bill discriminates against same-sex couplesPosted on March 14, 2013 by John Pierce
As if same-sex couples were not faced with enough social and legal bigotry, the so-called ‘Universal Background Check’ bill being pushed by Democrats adds the threat of being made a felon for simply going on a long business trip.
“What?” I hear you cry. “How is that possible?”
