this is yet another reason we need Universal Healthcare.

At some point the right needs to see healthcare as a right is cheaper than having it as a privilege.
This is not necessarily a health insurance issue. Your link looks at it through that narrow lens, but that doesn't mean health insurance is the core issue.

While it's on the topic of gunshot victim statistics, what else can we find out about these gunshot victims? What percentage of them live dysfunctional lifestyles compared to productive lifestyles? If we knew that, maybe we would realize this is a problem of there being disturbed dysfunctional people, not an issue of health insurance.

Disturbed dysfunctional people need health insurance more than anyone.
But health insurance isn't the core problem, in this case. It's being disturbed and dysfunctional. Health insurance doesn't make a disturbed dysfunctional person any less so.

So this thread needs to be reoriented to be about disturbance and dysfunction. Health insurance is peripheral to that.
