Default Malpractice kills 1,000 times more people than ARs!

F the doctors and their AMA

https://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/news...eath_in_the_us

What about the fact the CONSERVATIVE estimate of deaths caused by malpractice is 250,000 people in the USA per year?

Assault weapons about 250.

Yes, taking your kid to the doctor is much more dangerous than taking a walk at night in Stockton.

Forget malpractice, PG&E killed more people in California last year than ARs.

That’s why the average cost for malpractice insurance is like 900,000 bucks a year.

Donít give them any ideas, CA will start requiring us to have firearm liability insurance. (which is something we should consider having by choice not edict) Of course insurance companies use actuarial assumptions (ie historical statistical facts) to assess risk making firearm liability insurance policies premiums a tiny fraction of medical malpractice insurance. Hence gun owners are substantially safer than Physicians.

Between malpractice and prescription medication deaths more than 500,000 people every year die at the hands of the medical profession compared to the 12,000 by any firearm excluding suicides.

The pharmaceutical and Medical Industry spends more money lobbying Legislators than the NRA 90:1

And the AMA has the audacity to refer to gun deaths as a plague. The admitted number is 250,000 deaths. Some experts put the true number at over 600,000 people. That's the population of Cleveland. That's more people than anaheim.

Imagine if they showed that on TV. I was almost one of the dead. I had kaiser for insurance. With them it's your life or their bonus, and guess who wins in that equation?

The argument goes nowhere simply because not everyone owns an AR, but everyone does have their own doctor. Facts like this are outweighed by dependency and patient confidence.

50% of households own a gun, maybe not an AR but a gun. That means 170,000,000 people are exposed to guns everyday with no consequences. Very rarely do people get exposed to a doctor but when they do a rather large number of them don't fare too well.

Yes, these numbers aren't apples to apples. The numbers are biased in the doctors favor yet they still kill 1000 times more people than people with AR 15s.

If you look at all gun deaths, about 34,000, doctors still kill almost 10 times as many people per year.

Where is the outrage??

Just MRSA alone kills 99,000 people each year. That's due to unclean conditions in hospitals. We need to ban them . . .
