Medical Evidence: Gun Control Won't Solve Crime

Friday, 06 April 2001 12:00 AM

Written by Miguel A. Faria, M.D., the study finds that most gun violence studies of the past two decades are based on flawed methodology and unduly influenced by political agendas, leading to biased and incorrect conclusions.

The Medical Sentinel, the official journal of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, argues in effect that many of those who conducted the studies decided in advance what they wanted to prove, and then were "prejudiced" by that goal. Thus, Dr. Faria argues, the studies were not objective at all.

The doctor, who is editor in chief of the Sentinel, debunks a number of incorrect, widely accepted claims "promoted by anti-gun interest groups based on tainted studies."

Faria's findings are that:

The health establishment's stated objective in 1979, according to Faria, was "total eradication of handguns in the United States," and the follow-up studies were influenced by that objective.

The doctor faults "those in public health with a proclivity toward the promulgation of preordained research such as the gun and violence research conducted by many investigators with a gun control agenda and disseminated in the medical journals."

"Much of this information is tainted, result-oriented, and based on what can only be characterized as poor science," he concluded.
