The act of self-defense can have a double effect: the preservation of one's life;
and the killing of the aggressor...The one is intended, the other is not.

We can all feel it. With violent crime dominating the headlines, the pressure to blame gun owners is mounting. Everywhere we look, we see the familiar gun grabbers calling for “universal” background checks, a ban on semi-automatic rifles, and that old saw, restoring funding to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for “firearm research.”

Law-abiding gun owners should not become complacent because gun prohibitionist organizations, such as the Million Mom March and Handgun Control Inc., seem to be in retreat, if not scrambling and looking for cover. Other gun control groups, deceptively using more reasonable- and innocuous-sounding names such as Americans for Gun Safety (AGS), Women Against Gun Violence, and Doctors Against Handgun Injury, are stepping up to the plate to keep the pressure on the Second Amendment.

Abstract — En la práctica de la medicina, el cirujano no puede garantizar el resultado porque pueden ocurrir complicaciones; lo mismo puede pasar con las armas de fuego, que pueden ser usadas indebidamente por personas que no deberían tenerlas. Los políticos no deben utilizar tragedias debido a tiroteos callejeros como pretexto para dictar leyes que restrinjan la libertad a los ciudadanos que respetan las leyes, son responsables y saben que la libertad va junto con sus derechos constitucionales y responsabilidades civiles.

The need for reducing gun violence is discussed along with the necessity for citizens to assume some responsibility for protecting themselves, their families, and their property from criminal elements because the police cannot physically be everywhere to protect us all of the time. The problem of sensationalization of gun crimes by the media, multiple shootings by deranged individuals, accidents with firearms, suicide rates, and children with guns are discussed.

"There is a worrying trend in academic medicine which equates
statistics with science, and sophistication in quantitative procedure
with research excellence.
The corollary of this trend is a tendency to look for answers
to medical problems from people with expertise in mathematical manipulation
and information technology, rather than from people
with an understanding of disease and its causes.
