The News Tribune has published opinion pieces by doctors who are opposed to injuries and death caused by the wrongful use of firearms. What is ignored by these men is the fact that malpractice and mistakes by medical professionals in our hospitals, clinics and nursing homes cause far more injury and death in this country than guns.

Then there are the untold millions of American children who die a horribly violent though legal death by abortion.
