    The use of “public health” approach to firearm rights is a Big Lie, wherein one reduces injuries from firearm use by eliminating firearm ownership. Criminologists are much more trustworthy than physicians – and much, much, much more trustworthy than physicians groups, regarding criminal violence and firearms.

    Knowing lots of nurses (they travel in packs so if you know one, you know many), they tend to naturally be against things like guns, motorcycles, sports due to the injuries they see day in and day out.

    Just my anecdotal experience.

    A fine article but he gives credence to the supersonic shock wave fallacy. The shock wave is just a tiny sonic boom. It’s a loud noise on a light breeze which will cause no harm except maybe to your hearing. The speed of sound inside your body is around 4850fps, similar to the speed of sound in water, so there is no supersonic shock wave from the bullet passing through flesh.

    The wounding mechanics of supersonic rifle bullets are similar to those of slower pistol bullets. The wounds are greater in degree due to the greater energy of the rifle round, not due to a supersonic shock wave.
