@gungasnake,

Nearly 45,000 annual deaths are associated with lack of health insurance, according to a new study published online today by the American Journal of Public Health. That figure is about two and a half times higher than an estimate from the Institute of Medicine (IOM) in 2002.

The study, conducted at Harvard Medical School and Cambridge Health Alliance, found that uninsured, working-age Americans have a 40 percent higher risk of death than their privately insured counterparts, up from a 25 percent excess death rate found in 1993.

“The uninsured have a higher risk of death when compared to the privately insured, even after taking into account socioeconomics, health behaviors, and baseline health,” said lead author Andrew Wilper, M.D., who currently teaches at the University of Washington School of Medicine. “We doctors have many new ways to prevent deaths from hypertension, diabetes, and heart disease — but only if patients can get into our offices and afford their medications.”

@gungasnake,
A quick search shows that those figures are bogus.

According to the FBI, in 2012, there were 8,855 total firearm-related homicides in the US, with 6,371 of those attributed to handguns.[3] 61% of all gun-related deaths in the U.S. are suicides.[4] In 2010, there were 19,392 firearm-related suicides, and 11,078 firearm-related homicides in the U.S.[5] In 2010, 358 murders were reported involving a rifle while 6,009 were reported involving a handgun; another 1,939 were reported with an unspecified type of firearm.[6]

@timur,
Besides that, death caused by criminal malpractice in such a high number would have reduced the number of medical practitioners dramatically, I think.

Some sources seem to think that the 195,000 number for malpractice is too low....

The 323 number is just for semiauto rifles. Most gun-related deaths in the US involve pistols.

@gungasnake,
Then you should have compared it to, say, malpractice of sunburns treatment..

@gungasnake,
In 1984, between 44,000 and 98,000 hospitalized Americans died each year as a result of preventable medical errors. (Institute of Medicine (IOM) report on medical errors.)

One thing I notice about assault rifles....

The two D.C. area snipers, Muhammed and Malvo, were using an M16 rifle which you could call an assault rifle or assault weapon if you want to. But the WAY they were using it, one shot from inside 100 meters and then drive away, they could just as easily have been using a flint-lock. George Washington could have made any of those shots easily enough with his third or fourth best rifle.

B lack powder weapons in the United States are legally the same as spears or slingshots, few if any laws apply.

It is not what comes into your mouth that defiles you, but what comes out of it
