    that would be a tax on gun ownership to begin to pay for the damage they do to the health care system.  Why should you engage in risky behavior and not pay more for health care?

    Also we should release more money so we can study the problem.  The gun lobby won't even allow the CDC to collect statistics.  People owning guns for self defense is an illusion of individual safety, while statistically they make themselves and their households less safe.  Hard to get any actual data showing self defense is required that much, so it would be useful to try and collect some information.  We need a C. Everett Koop who will look the gun industry in the eye and tell Americans how unsafe gun ownership is.

    And those people who think they are the militia, arming for the end of the world or to save us from some Hitler fantasy of a police state- please spare me your freedom rant.  You aren't my militia, you are your own militia and you scare people.
