Guns and public health: Applying preventive medicine to a national epidemic

It happened again twice in less than twenty-four hours. Are any of us surprised? And can anybody help?

When a panel of seven doctors was asked how many had seen a gunshot victim within the past week, three hands went up. "I think people think that if their loved one gets to the hospital, that there's magic there. But sometimes it's just too much for us," said Dr. Stephanie Bonne.

If there was ever a time for preventive medicine, it's now, says a group of doctors.

"A grandfather was shot yesterday," said Dr. Roger Mitchell. "A son was shot yesterday. Yesterday a mother was shot yesterday. And then the day before that, there were five other people that were shot that were connected to Americans in this country."

Another memorable excerpt from the article: "The only thing worse than a death is a death that can be prevented," said Dr. Ronnie Stewart. "And to go and talk to the mom of a child who was normal at breakfast and now is not here, is the worst possible thing. And honestly, it drives us to address this problem."

The NRA, Trump, and all Republicans are directly responsible for this epidemic of violence across our nation, and it must be addressed and eradicated just like polio and any other deadly disease. We must regain political control of this nation in 2020.
