Surgeon General's authority over gun policy is beside the point

The point being (deliberately?) missed here is that the Surgeon General speaks with the federal government's voice on health issues (and even on what are dubiously claimed to be "health issues"). Even without direct power to set policy, the Surgeon General is presumably thought to have some influence, else why have the position at all?

By what legitimate authority does anyone have any control of another person's health care, diet or anything else?

Why would anyone grant this person any power over their life, regardless of his beliefs about guns or self defense?

I don't care WHO he is, or who else is "nominated... I don't care what any of them believes or "wants."
