Yesterday, an Ohio plastic surgeon, Katharine Grawe—who accumulated nearly 15 million likes by livestreaming operations on TikTok as "Doctor Roxy"—was permanently banned from practicing medicine and surgery in Ohio.

The decision came following a November 2022 suspension temporarily barring Grawe from seeing patients after the State Medical Board of Ohio reviewed "clear and convincing evidence" from multiple patients who were harmed during Grawe's livestreamed surgeries. The board decided to suspend Grawe's license, saying that her "continued practice presents a danger of immediate and serious harm to the public."

    > Well, guns don't kill. They lie inert on a shelf, or in a safe, or under the bed, until someone picks them up, and uses them to kill.

    Nonetheless, the homicide rate in the US is way higher than in other countries having equivalent GDP, e.g. comparing US to UK:

    https://ourworldindata.org/grapher/homicide-rate [ourworldindata.org]

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_guns_and_homicide [wikipedia.org]

    There is good evidence that a significant number of those homicides are committed using guns, and hence it is highly likely that an reducing the number of guns would reduce the homicide rate. I can't prove that statement, of course.

    One might argue that there are other ways to fight the homicide rate that are more effective than illegalisation of guns, such as:
    * better education
    * better healthcare
    * better social care/welfare
