    Patients of gun violence vs others

    This is the reason I feel in conflict about gun control. I have never owned a gun, but I respect the 2nd amendment to certain extent. I feel like I need to follow statistics albeit anecdotal from nurses. These are health care professionals who have a deep sense of compassion for patients. They would have been aware how often they care for firearm related victims compared to victims from natural disasters.

    Thank you. This is very enlightening.

    Wow, what I see on the news is the most tragic, but there os other underreported gun related violence, too. This is why I think only nurses can confirm the total victims of firearm violence. Death toll is easy to find, but injuries may be more difficult to gather data from.

    Thank you for your stats.

    Thank you. I hope trauma specialty nurses can give me some insights. I am curious about this when I saw Neil Degrass Tyson's data about victims of gun shot compared to other causes. Assuming that he is correct, I think nurses in trauma specialty and ICU may have better perspective.

    But in order to be outspoken on the issue, you need some data, don't you? Are you able to see statistics on the number of victims of gun shot wounds compared to others in your experience?

    In light of recent shooting incidents, I feel like if there is anyone who can have the most influence on the gun issue, you guys are because you are directly involved with patients. In your experience, how many patients you usually take care of are victims of gun violence? Are there more or less of them compared to victims of natural causes, traffic accidents, and domestic violence? Thank you, everyone.

    You are a noble person and a caring nurse. Unfortunately, someone in this forum is willing to downvote your post and makes fun of your username simply because you have a sensible opinion. His nerve was hit harder than mine. I admire you for letting it go. You are more zen than I am. I am unfortunately not like you. That is why working with animal patients keeps me sane Keep being a good atheist. Keep being grumpy if you need to. There is nothing wrong with expressing your feelings. Nurses are among the most hard working and perhaps the least appreciative professionals in medicine.

    You add too many qualifiers. I don't know why you feel the need to do that. I am an immigrant, and English is not my first language, but I can comprehend enough what you tried to tell me. I should have the option to have my own opinion whether or not I agree with your qualifying statements. Telling me how great you are is not going to earn my sympathy. This is an online environment. I don't easily trust people who catch fish with both hands. The person you need to direct this post to is GrumpyRN. You downvoted his post when he simply stated the fact. You also mocked his username simply because he expressed a factual statement. He is the one you should justify to if you think you need to say something. I am not that person. Sorry. If you and I live in the same state or meet in person, I would walk away from you the moment you invoke your divine calling when we discuss history. I don't like to be a soapbox for Christians to do testimony whether or not they have an intent to convert me. When your words and your action are in conflict, I take your action as the indicator of your intent. I am sorry for being abrasive to you, but I am tired with word game. The only reason I responded is that you specifically addressed me in your statements. Otherwise, I would not care.

    I wish that was the case, but it is not the reality unfortunately.

    I cannot tell whether you are sincere or you only do this for damage control. Your words seem to be louder than your thought. Regardless, there is no need to apologize. You are a Christian. Witnessing whenever to whoever is what a Christian does. I have accepted the fact that Christians can never respect other people's personal boundary. That is the nature of their faith. I could have chosen to ignore your posts, but I made a decision to respond, so I have to deal with your behavior resulted from your religion. That is just the way it is. Because I am very fortunate immigrating to Northern California, I don't deal with people like you on a daily basis. I did in the past, but it was not so excessively unbearable. You live your faith, and that is how it is. You are free to violate my personal boundary about religion, but I don't have to respect your witness testimony. I would rather see you show your honesty this way than offer a damage control apology. A honest enemy is better than a lying friend.

    That's fine. You are a Christian. Passive aggressive behavior and dismissiveness are what Christians are good at. I am used to such people with that saved-unsaved mentality. This is not the first time. Fortunately, my family did not immigrate to a bible belt, so I am safe from the "true" Christians. Feel free to analyze me as much as you wish. You will help me greatly when I have something to share with my allies in the atheist and polytheist communities. It will help their cause and protect religious minorities like myself from the "true" Christians. Atheists and polytheists already warned me about passive aggressive behavior among Christians. You simply helped me confirm that, so I have thank you for shredding my doubt about Christians.

    Wow, a Christian who enjoys privilege for his religion wants to tell me about his biography. This has nothing to do with my post. If I need to see a testimony, I know where to look at. Thank you very much. Besides, it is very low of you to tell me about your divine calling. I am a Buddhist, not a Christian. Whatever calling you have with your deity is none of my business. As a Christian, you cannot help behaving like one (proselytizing to non Christians anytime you wish), can you? What you label as anger and contempt is what I call righteous indignation, which I only have towards certain individuals with certain action at certain time. I am content with what I have in my life. Because of where I came from and my experience as an immigrant in this country, I have to speak up when I see the opportunity. In person, I simply walk away from believers like you with minimal effort. I live simply, and I prefer to keep it that way. Arguing with Chrsitians is something that I only did in the past as reluctant defense. I have stopped doing that for a long time. Whatever "anger" and "contempt" you psychoanalyze me stays in this forum. I am content with my off-social-media life. You don't have to teach me. Thank you.

    The system is an object without feelings. I have no opinion about hospitals. My contempt is towards the people who made a claim to GrumpyRN that they left England for "religious freedom". I responded to him because I know that it is not the whole truth. Even if everything you said is correct, that doesn't mean there was no Christian nurse who attempted to convert patients to Christianity even though they knew that the patients already committed to a faith. Apparently you can simply brush off my statements and enjoy your echo chamber with your fellow believers. I have evidence about such action from Christian nurses who you think are all wonderful and professional. I don't want to post it here because I don't feel the need to waste my time combating against people like you, who don't walk in minorities' shoes. I said what I said as a response to GrumpyRN. I did not respond to other posters for a long while. I don't have the intention to debate with you. As a believer, you would not get it anyway.

    Well, they are Christians. What can you expect from people who wish the apocalypse to happen so that they can unite with their god? These same people are crying wolves who scream persecution while persecuting other minorities. It frightens me that many of these people are in a highly respected profession that values human dignity.

    That nurse only told you partial truth. When the puritans left England for "religious freedom", they brought their persecution to the new continent. They persecuted witches and Quakers. Not mentioning Native Americans have also been their victims.
