Bloody Gunquack Meltdowns on Twitter Show Motives about Agenda, Not Science

Posted: November 17, 2018 by gamegetterII in Uncategorized

“A doctor has shared a gruesome photo of her scrubs covered in blood to hit back at the National Rifle Association’s claim that doctors should ‘stay in their lane’,” the UK’s Daily Mail happily publicizes. “Dr Kristin Gee, of Los Angeles, posted a picture of her pants and shoes drenched in a gunshot victim’s blood, writing: ‘To the @NRA, this is what it looks like to stay in #mylane’.”

The article showcases angry social media backlash by some anti-gun doctors to NRA’s proper contention that:

“Half of the articles in Annals of Internal Medicine are pushing for gun control. Most upsetting, however, the medical community seems to have consulted NO ONE but themselves.”

“NRA’s tweet was to introduce its article demonstrating those contentions, showing how anti-gun physicians exploit their status as doctors to presume expertise as arbiters of gun safety. That’s a subject we’ve explored before, noting the gunquacks are long on hysteria and short on proof of professional competence in that field.

Think about it—their formidable education and training in their fields of practice notwithstanding, what makes them qualified to offer professional opinions in fields for which they’ve had no formal training? Why are their opinions on guns more qualified than their opinions on what to do about that pinging noise under the hood, or what the proper mix of mutual funds and high tech stocks in your retirement portfolio should be? Just because they’re (presumably) highly competent in one field doesn’t mean they know squat about others.”
