Calling Gun Violence a Public Health Epidemic, Nation's Doctors Call for Assault Weapons Ban

Julia Conley, staff writer

The nation's largest physicians' group announced this week its endorsement of a ban on assault weapons in the latest sign that bold gun-control proposals are gaining widespread support at the urging of young Americans and the #NeverAgain movement.

Dr. David Barbe, outgoing president of the American Medical Association (AMA), framed the issue as one in which statistics and science, with 36,000 Americans dying from gun violence every year, is on the group's side.

Damn right.
We need to march, organize and protest to ban the gun least used in any kind of crime.

“Public Health Epidemic.”

The political establishment looks on this as, crowd control. A means to an end. Less mouths to feed.
