The AMA, Ethics and Gun Control (Part II)

(from ammoland.com)
[Ed:  This is the second part of Dr. Faria's series, originally published at Newsmax.com on May 15, 2001.  The double-standard held by the AMA and its organs about using its position "for political purposes" is remarkable.  See Part I here.] I was struck one particular morning when I heard on the radio on January 15, 1999, that the editor of the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), George D. Lundberg, M.D., had been fired by the AMA for using JAMA for his own political purp...

Another Failure of Peer Review at JAMA

You don’t have to be a trained statistician or criminologist to get published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) if you’re on message about guns, judging from this new anti-gun advocacy article. The editors at one of America’s leading medical journals have been clear for years on what they want readers to think about guns—private ownership of firearms should be banned. (more…)

Organized Medicine Continues to Scorn Gun Owners

(from examiner.com)

I’m also chronically disappointed i...

Led by the long-time speaker of the AMA's House of Delegates, now president-elect, organized medicine has joined the gun control movement...

Organized medicine’s answer to the Orlando mass murder: Deception and control

(Internet meme)
Another “mass shooting” in America! That is what politically correct media and politicians are saying. They don’t want to admit that a terrorist attack is much more than a mass shooting.  They refuse to see that hate based on race, religion, sexual preference or political belief has nothing to do with the weapons used to inflict that hate on innocent people.  They ignore the fact that the policies they propose will not change the worldwide war ISIS is waging on everyone who does not belie...

Early Lessons of the Orlando Terrorist Attack

Being able to say “I told you so” isn’t always a good feeling.  But as authorities begin sorting out the details of the Orlando terrorist attack, some things are obvious. The first point is that we knew this was coming.  While there has been a steady stream of small, Islamist-inspired incidents over the last four decades, the ferocity of the attacks has been increasing, as evidenced by the mass murders at Fort Hood and San Bernardino.
