Fixing wounds doesn't entitle you to craft Constitutional policy and limit rights. There are about 1.1 million doctors in the US and a minimum of 250,000 medical malpractice deaths per year. There are 300 million guns in the US and about 60k total deaths from guns per year. Looking at the numbers, it looks like Doctors are more deadly to people than guns are.
There are so many factual and logical errors in this post, I don't think I can begin to respond to them all.
Fixing wounds doesn't entitle you to craft Constitutional policy and limit rights
You seem to imply that owning a gun does allow you to craft Constitutional policy. Certainly doctors have as much right as gun owners do. Shouldn't both sides be entitled to state their opinions?
There are about 1.1 million doctors in the US and a minimum of 250,000 medical malpractice deaths per year.
This sentence is factually untrue. You didn't bother to look at anything to do with the study. It specifically states "The researchers caution that most of medical errors aren’t due to inherently bad doctors, and that reporting these errors shouldn’t be addressed by punishment or legal action. Rather, they say, most errors represent systemic problems, including poorly coordinated care, fragmented insurance networks, the absence or underuse of safety nets, and other protocols, in addition to unwarranted variation in physician practice patterns that lack accountability."
Facts from the study: - 1. Doctors are not responsible for most of the deaths due to medical errors. 2. Most of the deaths due to medical errors are not malpractice but a result of failures of systems put in place. 3. Many of the deaths are caused by persons other than doctors such as nurses, pharmacy techs, data entry personnel that enter the wrong data, etc. Your own link uses the story of a young girl who died due to an error by a pharmacy tech. Pharmacy techs are not doctors.
There is no evidence of doctors causing 250,000 medical malpractice deaths per year. According to the study you referenced it can't even be 125,000. Your statement is patently false and not supported by any study.
There are 300 million guns in the US and about 60k total deaths from guns per year
This comparison of guns to doctors is nonsense.
First of all, if you want to compare doctors to guns then you are clearly stating "guns kill people" since you are clearly stating that doctors kill people. Are you conceding that the argument that people kill people not guns is a false argument but it is actually guns that do kill people?
What you are actually doing in comparing doctors to guns is comparing persons to an instance. Either you should be comparing the instances of guns to the instances of medical interactions or you should be comparing those that could possibly make a medical mistake to those that own a gun.
If you are not conceding that guns kill people but rather it is gun owners that do that then your numbers of persons that can make a medical error resulting in death is incredibly low. Unlike the study you referenced and are misusing horribly, you only count doctors. You should also be including physician assistants, nurses, nursing assistants, pharmacists, pharmacist techs, insurance coders, the people at the check in counter, the writers of medical software, and the list goes on and on. Any one of those persons could make a mistake that could cause a death according to the study. That would mean you have severely understated the number of persons that have made a mistake resulting in a death.
(There are 4.2 million nurses on top of the 1.1 million doctors which results in your number being understated by at least a factor of 5. If I researched the entire medical industry it would show you to be off by much more but the factor of 5 is enough to show you are way outside the mathematical norm.)
But you counted guns and not gun owners which mean you did the reverse for that argument. You have clearly overstated the number of gun owners by relying on the number of guns. The number of gun owners is only 30% of adults according to this study: http://www.pewsocialtrends.org/2017/06/22/the-demographics-of-gun-ownership/
The number of adults is only just over 250,000,000 which means that only about 75,000,000 adults own guns.
(That would mean your comparison using guns instead of gun ownership overstated that part of you comparison by a factor of 4.)
Overstating one side of a comparison and understating the other is sloppy at best and down right deceitful at the other end.
Of course you could compare instances of guns with instances of patients interacting with the medical system.
The US averages 4 doctor visits per capita. That means there are over 1 Billion (with a B) doctor visits. If we merely assume each visit only involves 1 check in and 1 nurse prior to the doctor that means there are over 3 billion personal interactions that could result in medical errors. ( I haven't even started with all the pills dispensed to those patients by pharmacists and other persons that can make mistakes but already you are off by a factor of over 3,000.))
Looking at the numbers, it looks like Doctors are more deadly to people than guns are.
Now we have looked at the numbers.
But just for the sake of being ridiculous let's make a conclusion as baseless as yours. Your misuse of numbers is more deadly to people than doctors are.
(Although there is a possibility I could be correct, since you are using your numbers to support giving more opportunity for people to use guns to kill people.)
