Why Don’t Hospitals Want More Gun Control?

The war on guns will never end. The mainstream narrative has gone quiet because the short attention span of the majority of the left requires them to go with the flavor of the week. That doesn’t change the fact that there is a dedicated base that is always trying to shove more gun control down our throats.

These people are the most dangerous threat to our freedom, and many of them know that. They’ll try to convince you that entire sections of the country are on their side and that you should abandon the fight. It’s an insidious tactic. In fact, it probably has you assuming that most doctors and healthcare workers favor more gun control. The truth is far more interesting.

Leftist groups are proud of their incessant calls for gun control. They want stricter laws and more CDC research. The latter is ironic considering it was Obama who banned CDC research after he didn’t like their findings. Among those leftist groups are large contingency of doctors and healthcare professionals.

“Guns Kill People” is a network of medical publications fighting fervently for more gun laws. Plenty of doctor groups are also in the trenches — raising money for lobbying efforts. In the midst of this mania, one group is oddly silent: hospitals.

The American Hospital Association

The largest lobbying group in the nation that represents hospitals has more than 5,000 facilities under their umbrella. Throughout the years, they have never once made a public statement calling for gun control.

They have a strong anti-violence initiative. It looks into ways to prevent violence and make communities safer. The group spends a fair chunk of change on it every year, but nowhere in any of its publications or outreach programs does it mention guns specifically.

Equally strange, it doesn’t call for legislation. Instead, the initiative focuses on outreach programs, education assistance and community building to fight violence. The only thing even resembling a gun-control call from the group is an expressed desire for more CDC research on all violence, guns included.

Other Groups

The American Hospital Association isn’t an outlier. The largest hospital organizations include the Children’s Hospital Association, Catholic Health Association, Federation of American Hospitals and America’s Essential Hospitals. They represent thousands more hospitals across the country, and from all of them, you can only find one statement that sounds anti-gun at all. That came after the Sandy Hook shooting, and America’s Essential Hospitals made a public call for an end to gun violence.

They didn’t support any specific legislation. They didn’t sign petitions. They just said that gun violence is bad. And, that is the only “blemish” on any of these organizations. Simply put, they are not anti-gun.

Of course, there are exceptions. Individual hospitals are not always on the same page as their associations, but those are extremely rare. In fact, there are only three hospitals in the country that are currently pursuing a public stance on gun control: Massachusetts General in Boston, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and Children’s Mercy Kansas City. That’s it.

This leads us to the obvious question. Why are hospitals so consistently silent on gun control? A few presidents have answered that question, and their words were predictably noncommittal. According to these people, hospitals stand to gain nothing by taking sides on controversial political issues. You can see consistency there. These groups shy from all of the hot-button topics of the day.

But, gun violence more directly affects hospitals than most issues. In fact, more than 99 percent of gunshot victims are treated at hospitals. Even more to the point, a large number of those victims are on Medicare or Medicaid. Those are money losing issues for hospitals. Despite the impact to the bottom line, they’re still quiet.

There’s a more likely reason that you don’t hear tons of cries for gun control from hospitals, their workers and their associations. They don’t believe in it. Disenchanted workers are the first to admit that shooters are criminals and unlikely to obey additional laws. Hospital workers in Chicago really don’t care if Alaska has a higher rate of violence than their city. They only know what they see– an endless stream of gunshot victims every day. They also know that the city’s efforts to tighten gun control have made no impact in their work.

In the end, this brings us to an important delineation. The bulk of doctors and care providers working in hospitals are less fervent about gun control. They want to see an end to violence, but they seem less naive in their efforts. The doctors who don’t deal with gunshots on a daily basis are more likely to sign petitions and go with the mainstream narrative.

It shows another example of what we’ve known all along: realists and pragmatists don’t want gun control. They know it will never end violence.

    Talking Heads and other script readers do as their paymasters dictate. People at the pointed end of the spear, people who at first hand, day in and day out see the abject failure of Gun Control know better, and are not water carriers for the know nothings, that repeat the blather of Gun Control.

      Article lies when saying hospitals lose money on Medicare/Medicaid cases! Those hospitals pad those bills with 90% unneeded charges!

    The hospital employees that see the results of gun violence know that more restrictive gun laws are useless to stop gun violence. These people gave the information to the CDC over many years. That is why the CDC studies were repressed under the Obama Administration, because the studies didn’t agree with what the liberals wanted to see. Career felons create more than 80 % of gun violence, and felons aren’t going to follow the “laws”, count on it. About the only way to stop gun violence is to eliminate career felons on the streets – never let them see the inside of a courtroom, only the morgue. I’m not promoting vigilantism, but I am leaning towards Texas type justice (if more than three reliable witnesses see the crime, then the perp only has a very limited time on this Earth – not 20 or 30 years of appeals before they are executed). Note the States that have lenient gun laws have lower crime rates than very restrictive States like California and New York. Why? The felons will prey on people they know are unarmed. I am looking at this as a citizen, not as a government official that has a bevy of armed bodyguards protecting them 24/7. And we know from past incidents that a posse of armed bodyguards is fatally not enough.

      Please don’t use the Dim’s idiot term of ‘gun violence’, guns do nothing on their own, it’s always

      ADDICTIONS / MENTAL ILLNESS VIOLENCE !!!

      99% of DAILY Religious Terrorism in the USA is Christian Religion Addiction Terrorism !!! :

      Footnoted small sample of Judeo/Christian Religious Terrorism WRITTEN ORDERS direct from the Christian BuyBull (Quran has even more) for Murdering of innocent people:

      “Blessed be the Lord my Rock, who trains my hands for WAR, my fingers for BATTLE.” Psalm 144:1.

      Jesus: “ Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a SWORD. 35 For I have come to turn…
      “a man against his father,
      a daughter against her mother,
      a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law…” Mathew10:34-35

      Jesus, who wanted to be King of the Jews, said: “But those enemies of mine who did not want me to be king over them–bring them here and KILL them in front of me.” (Luke 19:27)

      Anyone who curses or blasphemes God, should be STONED TO DEATH by the community. (Leviticus 24:14-16)

      Anyone who dreams or prophesizes anything that is against God, or anyone who tries to turn you from God, is to be PUT TO DEATH. (Deuteronomy 13:5)

      If anyone, even your own family suggests worshipping another God, KILL them. (Deuteronomy 13:6-10)

      If you find out a city worships a different god, destroy the city and KILL ALL of it’s inhabitants… even the animals. (Deuteronomy 13:12-15)

      KILL anyone with a different religion. (Deuteronomy 17:2-7)

      KILL all men, women, children, and, even, babies already of the 20 nations/50 belief systems/religions of the Promised Land when moving into it. (Deuteronomy)

      Imaginary Jesus of gospel stories said his followers must obey the Torah/Old Testament (N.T. not invented yet) (Jesus invented ~150 A.D.)
