I might be on the minority, but I agree with some his thinking. If people refuse to take care of themselves, and we aren't allowed to kill stupid people, druggies, or others like them, then there should be some controls set down by the Gov't. Everyday, there are probably twice as many BS'ers in any given ER or walk-in, just looking for a pill fix.

On an extreme comparison, look at medical pot. It's been legal for years in some places regardless of the Federal laws, but yet people "claim" all sorts of stuff, just to get their high on. If the Gov't would spend money, do research and realize cannabis can be used without the pschoactive components, I bet a lot of people suddenly wouldn't feel that pain when they got a pill that didn't get them high...

Doctors attend medical school for 10+ years to get their medical license. Most much more than that.
In addition, they are required to take classes every year to keep that license.

The knowledge and training they acquire is what we pay them the big bucks for.

The politicians, with no such knowledge or training, are butting in where they don't belong....again.

Bloomberg: If You Sell a Gun to Your Son, 'There's Something Wrong in Your Family' | CNS News

Quote:

If you sell a gun to your son, “there’s something wrong with your family," says New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
In a radio appearance on Friday, Bloomberg, a gun control activist and co-chair of Mayors Against Illegal Guns, praised the legislation that is now moving forward in the Senate. The bill would require universal background checks for most sales of firearms, including those online and at gun shows.
