Death By Doctor vs. Death By Firearms

The attacks on the Second Amendment, by government, have extended to persecuting a decorated war hero and charging him with five counts of third degree criminal possession of a weapon, for having completely empty 30 round AR-15 magazines in his vehicle.

On January 6, 2013, a decorated combat veteran, Staff Sergeant Nathan Haddad, was driving through Jefferson County, New York when he was randomly pulled over at a Fourth Amendment violating warrantless vehicle checkpoint search. Haddad, who had five 30-round empty magazines in his vehicle, was arrested by the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department and was charged with five separate felonies. If convicted on all counts, Haddad, could spend the majority of the rest of his life in prison.

When Nathan Haddad was arrested, the new ban on his gun magazines had not yet taken effect.  The ignoramuses’ at the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department should be given a civics homework assignment; namely to look up the term, ex post facto. In other words, the government cannot pass a law which makes a past act illegal prior to a new law taking effect. But, I forget, this is the new America and we are clearly in the midst of adopting totalitarian laws and law enforcement practices which are serving to replace our Constitution (e.g. the NDAA).

Ironically, Haddad was recently honored by the Philadelphia chapter of Blue Star Mothers and the Union League’s Armed Services Council for helping disabled veterans get back on their feet and this is how the Jefferson County Sheriff’s office honors his service to his country and later, to his community.

A legal relief fund has been set up to help Sergeant Haddad fight against the tyrants in New York. I would encourage all to donate what they can.

Gun control laws are not meant to stop criminals. Gun control is about control and about disarming the American people because there are some very bad people who wish to do middle class Americans great harm. America needs to wake up and see gun control for what it is; gun control is most often a precursor to absolute tyranny and often culminates in genocide.

If this government was truly sincere about making the country safer, they would be corralling and controlling the reckless and negligent medical-pharmaceutical-industrial complex. The present medical statistics demonstrate that death by doctor dwarfs death by gunfire as the following chart demonstrates.

# of Deaths
Heart disease
Medically caused deaths
Chronic lower respiratory diseases
120, 859
83, 494
Nephritis, nephrotic syndrome
Influenza and Pneumonia
Death by Firearm

In 2010, there were 14,043 homicides in the United States. This was 15th leading cause of death according to the CDC mortality statistics and a Wall Street Journal review for causes of death. However, when one isolates the number of deaths by firearms,  the number of deaths caused by guns drops to 9,601. Gunfire, as a cause of mortality is not even ranked among the leading causes of death. The likelihood of being killed in a mass shooting are about what they are for being struck by lightning.

Let’s take a moment to examine the leading causes of death and the possible reasons underlying the mortality statistics. Perhaps we should be looking at the Bovine Growth Hormones (cancer causing) put into cattle which makes its way into the human population by way of meat and milk consumption.

We ingest these dangerous substances and literally, the entire country is on a secondary form of steroids. Subsequently, massive rates of obesity have beset our nation and not one word of discussion on this topic has taken place in the mainstream media or in the halls of Congress. Maybe the country should question the wisdom of taking the flu vaccine. There is not one shred of scientific evidence which supports the use of the vaccine which would serve to justify the hundreds of thousands adverse reactions. The use of the flu vaccine defies conventional wisdom. How does one make up a vaccine a year before the “new” strain appears. Is this medicine by crystal ball? And where is the supportive data?

With this kind of voodoo science, no wonder death by doctor is the third leading cause of death in the United States. Also, contributing to our demise, in these areas, are the massive amounts of untested, unregulated and unlabeled GMOs by which we have seen massive cancerous tumors in rats raised on a GMO diet. Monsanto has bought out and is controlling the FDA and the CDC, and subsequently is allowed to avoid all reviews of its products and food safety.

Finally when we take a look at chemtrails, perhaps we would be wise to be looking for a link between barium, found in chemtrails, and barium’s prevalence as a causal agent in the development of Alzheimer’s.

With Obamacare being fully implemented, complete with age-related rationing, a reasonable person would expect these medically induced mortality numbers to skyrocket!

When one steps back and looks at the medical-pharmaceutical-industrial complex, it is clear that what is supposed to cure us, all too often kills us. Meanwhile, America stays fixated on gun control as a means to increase safety and longevity when the data does not support this illogical, unproven and unconstitutional action.

Meanwhile, an examination of the causes of death in the medical industry, as related by the Starfield Report, demonstrates the extreme danger posed to nation’s health and well-being by the medical-pharmaceutical industrial complex.

The Journal American Medical Association
Barbara Starfield

Medical Cause of Death
Annual Number of Deaths
Deaths from medication errors in hospitals
Deaths from unnecessary surgeries
Deaths from other errors in hospitals
Deaths from infections acquired in hospitals
Deaths from FDA-approved correctly prescribed medicines
Total of medically-caused deaths in the US every year

It is clear that America’s annual mortality rate would decline significantly if the government were to ban doctors instead of attempting to ban guns. The medical system is a far greater threat to our nation’s health and welfare than are firearms. An American has a 23 times greater chance of being killed by their doctor than by a firearm!

Incidents of mass murder in the U.S. declined from 42 in the 1990s to 26 in the first decade of this century. Head of the Police Chiefs of America, John Lott, offers a final damning statistic which serves to indict the illogical beliefs underlying gun control:
With just one single exception, the attack on congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords in Tucson in 2011, every public shooting since at least 1950 in the U.S. in which more than three people have been killed has taken place where citizens are not allowed to carry guns.
School shootings actually peaked in 1929, but we would not want to confuse Obama and his minions with the facts. Meanwhile, our inane gun policies persecute heroes like Sergeant Haddad as he is clearly being made an example of, by the government, to thwart the rising tide of anti-government sentiment over the gun control issue. In other words, the Haddad case is designed to frighten law-abiding citizens into giving up their guns.

The United States is in the process of criminalizing the act of self-defense by removing the only equalizer that Americans have for self-defense against an attacker or to fend off a tyrannical government. It is safe to say, that we are committing national suicide by gun control.

If only most Americans had the courage and wisdom of the folks in the youtube video clip below.

In the clip, New York residents tell local law enforcement officials what they think about the new N.Y. gun control "laws" and they are passionate!

I think Doctors are the third leading cause of death.

'gun violence', the term is a euphamism for human violence, a succesfully planted and sustained misrepresentation by the anti freedom to privately own a gun faction, a clever peice of political science that absolves the individual of responsability for their violent actions and shifts the blame to an inaminate object which cannot pursue any act of violence of its own accord.
there is no such thing as gun violence there is only human violence.

I'm ok with sacrificing 9,600 people a year to maintain the world-wide perception that, "attacking the U.S. would not be 'us' vs. an army of 500,000- it would be 'us' against 280,000,000 armed citizens and an army of 500,000."

Yep, my conscience is clear on that. The soviets feared that, the Germans feared that, the Japanese feared that, the Brits and the French learned that lesson too and any "pretender-to-the-throne" is held at bey by that reality.

Genetically modified this and that, hormones in this and that, steroids in this and that- then we throw chemtrails on top! As a scientist, I see your point, however, I think you miss the big picture. Individually, all of the crap we ingest is tested; your information that suggest otherwise is misleading to the point of dishonesty. But we'll just blow past that for the sake of the bigger picture. What is not tested is the recombinant effects of the culmination of all of it. No one gives the lab rats GMO products in combination with a flu shot, a dose of cheese manufactured from steroid & hormone laden milk, chicken mcnuggets, a bath in tap water and then let them sip a diet coke chock-full of asparatame. Therein lies the "conspiracy" and that is where the FDA is impotent to act.

No one thing is making us: sick, fat, cancer-ridden, Alzheimer's susceptible, autistic, compliant or pathetic. It is the combined effects of many of the items. Think of it this way: a windstorm doesn't just "blow a house down"; it is the combined effects, over time, of ripping off siding, fascia, soffit, the the roof and eventually- the house. Same thing goes for the recombinant effects of our diet.

Look at Dr. Mary's Monkey, a book which describes the cancer vaccine that was injected with the polio vaccinations. Done knowingly by the Government and Health organizations, this has partially led to the soft tissue cancer epidemic in the US.

You stated the death rate would drop after banning doctors. You would need to take into account how many would die from the lack of medical care. Kinda shits on the whole article which was pretty good.

Indeed Merlin. Clearly the most obvious signs of the combined effects over time of various toxins is the willingness of gun lovers to believe that their guns can protect them or democracy.

11:28, There is no such thing as gun violence?????

A fat slovenly TV loving American who eats a steady diet of soda and fast food isn't much of a threat to anyone. I do not fear this typical slob and any violence between us would result in him getting beat like a dog. If that lazy out of shape pig had a gun, it would be all over for me.
Gun violence is real, so is human violence involving fights and lesser weapons, and they are very different things.
Only a greasy gun industry shill could attempt to confuse that issue with clever sneaky word games. Are you a lawyer?
Of course the gun nuts have proven their willingness to detach from reality and accept any lie from the clever wordsmiths employed by the gun lobbyists.

Except it will be from our own government, not from outside. 9600 is worth it.

Merlin Wizard said...

@ anonymous feb 5, 11:24 am. I doubt it would ever be from our own government, if the 280,000,000 are still armed.

Guns may not "insure democracy" but they would definitely insure my property was littered with food for the local animals if anyone, foreign or domestic, attempted to gain entry without my expressed written consent. Well trained by the military, well educated by experience ( and school) and disciplined enough to dial in my dope, maintain windage markers, lead only as necessary and pull the trigger without jerking.

@ anon 11:22

According to the CDC there are more deaths from blunt force trauma (i.e. lesser weapons) than firearms. There are literally millions of firearms used for self defense in this country and that fact is hardly every made known.

Only a self-important busybody would ignore facts and maintain that they know best how we should all live.

Anonymous said...


Only a liar would claim an absurdity like blunt force being responsible for more murder than guns........without any link, typical.

Or, perhaps a paid gun industry shill? Hard to tell, you don't give much away.

Everyone has their opinion. They one scientist educated he states through books can't see the whole picture because our schools and collages just teach us what they govern us to believe as truth. Some of us who actually question the lessons being taught are the ones who have some brain cells that weren't there during the conformation part of class. We were in the Dean's office being threatened with losing our scholarships for rippling their glass lake.

Face it, you can lead the horse to water but you can't make them drink. Soon their water supply won't exist except one filled with all the combined toxins. Then maybe they will look back at how ignorantly book smart their words are. Of course the effect of all things bad for us put together is going to make things worse. Doesn't take a scientist to figure that one out, c'mon, it's just common sense. Taking down each contributor to this deadly end result must be dealt with individually and held accountable for their part in this human genocide. They also must be taken apart quickly and with precision to stop any money hungry, agenda followers from hopping on board to take over where the old ones crumbled. There's a domino effect to everything we do and think and the universe in not bias to whether or not your thought and actions will have a good or bad impact on humanity. Herein lies our responsibility to REALLY look at the "Whole Picture" if you want to see the REAL truth.

I may be weakened and sick but I stand among the annonymous trying to be a light so people see the truth despite the fabricated webs our government weavea to confuse and distract us.

Guns were used in 67% of homicides, which accounted for only .12% of all violent crimes. There were 1.2 million violent crimes last year, of which 12,000 resulted in death, 9600 of them by firearms.

So, though the anonymous genius above was wrong about more murders being caused by blunt instruments than guns, he was right about one thing: blunt instruments were used 100 times more often than guns in the commission of violence!

The FBI data tables tell an interesting story- everyone should go read through them.
