“Oh then maybe there wonâ€™t be enough painkillers for the poor who use the emergency rooms as their primary care doctor,â€™â€ the mayor said on his weekly radio show with John Gambling.
â€œNumber one, thereâ€™s no evidence of that.
How could there be? The policy is brand new.
Number two, supposing it is really true so you didnâ€™t get enough painkillers and you did have to suffer a little bit. The other side of the coin is people are dying and thereâ€™s nothing perfectâ€¦ Thereâ€™s nothing that you can possibly do where somebody isnâ€™t going to suffer and itâ€™s always the same group [claiming], â€˜Everybody is heartless.â€™ Come on, this is a very big problem.â€
By that reasoning, his gun control measures are foolish because they attempt to make perfect (no gun deaths) by imposing laws. And those very laws may actually cause more innocent people to die at the hands of criminals.
That’s not just heartless, it is stupid.
