    I voted no, but it actually can be considered yes. If the uninvited public stays out of my house they will stay healthy.

    That would be an OSHA issue IMHO

    I love this quote:
    James, PharmD- Jul 16, 2008
    Murder has been in the hearts of men since Cain and Abel. We have been slaughering our fellow man century after century very efficiently thank you very much. Guns are simply tools. Tools can be used or misused and once release upon the world, they can never be made to go away. Can advocating or denegrating a tool, rather then dealing with the motivations of the users, ever be a valid approach to any public health issue? Do we say "bad potato chip" when a patient asks for help with weight loss?
    "My God David, We're a Civilized society."

    Not surprising to see this. The AMA is VERY anti-gun.

    Well, they're afraid of lead poisoning.

    Voted "no." Current results:

    Yes approx. 12%
    No approx. 84%
    1168 responses thus far.

    No other choices, so why not adding up to 99-100%?
