Surgeon general declares firearm violence in America a public health crisis

Maybe he should talk to his boss about actually arresting and prosecuting the criminals who perpetuate this crap :poop: Instead of releasing with no bail and pleading down charges for repeat offenders and choosing instead to go after law abiding citizens.

Didn’t we try to address this problem before and people said they wouldn’t sign up for free training because they thought they would be on a list.

This is step one in their process of bypassing the constitution. It’s exactly what New Mexico tried. Declare an emergency, giving extraordinary power to the executive branch. Next we’ll see a series of executive orders to mitigate the “crisis.”

This is BS, and it’s another encroachment on our rights. The crisis is out of-control crime, ineffective DA’s, bad laws (I’m looking at you, NY), defunded police, understaffed police department (how many seasoned cops were run out of Northern cities for not getting shots?) and on and on.

Truth and reality mean nothing to these tyrants. It’s all lies to forward their agenda and appease the gullible masses that “they’re doing something.”

Yeah, track the owner list not the guns.

Declare Constitutional Carry Nationwide, drop reciprocity totally, and NOT arrest/prosecute self defense cases on law abiding citizens. Maybe that will put a curve on criminal violence. Too many criminals roaming the streets across the country. Law abiding citizens can’t properly defend themselves with their hands tied behind their backs with all these anti gun control laws being shoved their throats, and has no effect on the criminals as they freely illegally enjoy the 2A, illegally conceal carrying travelling freely across the country, with no reciprocity, committing their crime spree.

Army of monkeys…and a way to try to get votes to fix a problem that isn’t a problem and which can’t be fixed. “We the Sheeple.”

You hit the nail on the head Ronald ! The reason these violent criminals are running rampant is because they don’t have a predator,like the mountain lions in California and the wolves in Idaho

Predictable. Going after everything but the actual cause of the problem.

The neighbor state, New Mexico is 2nd. in the nation for violent crime…has been for years. Liberal “judges” don’t even begin to cover the deliberate incompetence and endangering of their own citizens. Seems that pretty much all democrat destroyed states have the worst crime. BUT…couple that with the war on our gun rights. This is no accident. Weaken the “criminal justice system” go after law abiding citizens guns…pile more and more “gun laws” on already draconian laws and VOILA…sorry citizens, we’re here to take your guns. History repeats itself. Goes back a looooong time. Just check out the histories of nations once armed…and where to many are now. With the bleeding from the eyes democrats and rinos wanting to “rule the masses” expect this to worsen.
Oh, go to the ATF website and peruse the uncountable amounts of gun laws, statutes, regulations etc. I printed out 109 lines of type on bump stocks alone…used in one, still “magically” unexplained shooting in Las Vegas. P.S. there were multiple guns from different areas firing that ugly night.

It seems as though the Surgeon General is unaware that because of local, state, and federal guvments not protecting the public, we must do the job ourselves.

And we do that to manage our own “mental anguish and psychological damage” caused by anointed leaders like the Surgeon General.

One of their prime arguments for declaring this a public health emergency is the number of “children” killed by “gun violence” every year.

But in order to make that number look at all significant they need to massively mislead the public by manipulating who they are trying to make everyone picture with that number while including massive numbers of people that don’t at all fit that image.

Their definition of “children” is anyone 19 and younger. This adds in all the 18 and 19 year old gang members killing each other in the streets pretty much every day. Not to mention all the gang members 17 and under doing the same. None of those are the sweet innocent little five year olds and babies they are falsely implying their numbers represent.

Every childhood death is a tragedy. But this is not a “gun violence” problem. This is a people violence and suicide problem. It’s time to for the hoplophobes to stop ignoring the real problems and worse yet using them as excuses to pursue their personal political agendas.

According to Dr. Murthy’s statement, 48,204 people died as a result of firearm related injuries in 2023. I find it noteworthy that a report from Johns Hopkins a year ago estimated that “795,000 Americans die or are permanently disabled by diagnostic error each year,” and that “The resulting national estimate of 371,000 deaths and 424,000 permanent disabilities reflects serious harms widely across care settings,” yet the good doctor isn’t calling for “doctor control” or “medical restrictions.” If the Surgeon General followed the same logic, and if he had any integrity, he would ban himself and the entire medical profession.

Maybe I’m a rare exception, but in reading his statistics, between all my family, friends, coworkers etc. I can’t even come up with 1% of these people experiencing what he’s talking about. There’s only one bottom line here, the government doesn’t want you to have guns because they, in conjunction with the New World Order, have something planned they fear the populace will reject. Covid my friends was just a dress rehearsal for what they have planned. Don’t fall for it.

It’s just a damn shame that irresponsible gun owners are getting all the attention & responsible gun owners are being reported as the problem. Typical media manipulation
