More people die from hospital-acquired problems than shootings. Director of Doctors for Responsible Gun Ownership Tim Wheeler joins Cam Edwards by phone to discuss these shocking numbers reflecting that 98,000 people die from preventable medical errors each year. More Americans are therefore dying each month than died in the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, and yearly gun-related death rates fall far short of these "hospital deaths" as well. Wheeler and Edwards speculate that perhaps media, politicians and people would be better served to fix these problems rather than attack the Second Amendment.
