Vaccinate ourselves against those who want to take our right away

Opinion

To the Editor:

A new group of Canadian doctors backed by the country’s main medical organizations is urging the government to ban and seize guns from federally licensed hunters, farmers, and sport shooters. Its leader compared new restrictions to a “preventive vaccine” against a disease.”

Doctors should concern themselves more about how they increase patients’ costs by prescribing non-generic drugs and making patients travel for results because they get paid more. How many times do they create waiting lists themselves to help with negotiations to extract more money from the government? Maybe we should vaccinate ourselves against those that want to take all our rights away from us.
