Medical Society president Dr. Bruce MacLeod says gun violence should be studied the same way doctors study diabetes and heart disease.

“We really need to understand what we can do to mitigate it,” he said. “Is it the users? Is it the guns? Can you engineer guns to be safer? All of these are questions that should be studied.”

You all know it's coming .......... as part of the new ObamaCare program, firearms will be deemed dangerous - not to mention with IRS leverage. It is coming and what are you going to do about it?

Enter Obamacare.

So Bruce has decided to weigh into the political waters, eh? Funny, but I had never given his position any thought. Is he elected or appointed? Who's his boss? To where can I send a letter and/or a donation to hasten the end of his career. Congratulations, Bruce. People's attention - you has it.

Have you had your bi-annual mental health checkup as required under Zero-Care, comrade?

Ghetto culture and the failed war on drugs are the problems.

Not sure about that
'dem MP-40's are pricey

Someone should ask that clown in public how many people died due to medical malpractice...hint, it's four to five times the rate of total gun deaths per year.

Nothing, but nothing shuts up a doctor like the word 'malpractice'.

Well let's see. The "gun violence" rate for Norwegian Americans is virtually the same as the rate for Norwegians.

Statistically, that would seem to eliminate strict gun control laws as a solution.

I'm thinking it's a cultural thing.

then look at location. Take away the top 30 urban areas in the US, and our "gun violence" rates get very close to Euro levels.

Hmm. Not sure what to make of that.

Death by one's own government (democide) is estimated to have killed 262 million in the 20th century. That number is six times the total number killed in all foreign and domestic wars within the same century.

gun violence.

made up libtard term.

anybody that uses it is an idiot.

I've got a book on gun control. Got it from the library. Has a forward by Bloomberg. Guns are bad, gun owners are irresponsible and unreasonable. Any laws that
reduce the availability of guns are good laws.

Ban the guns for the childrens.

"Can you engineer them to be safer"

That question is an engineering question which means it is not a medical question. Second I believe he can study murderers at his leisure because that is who commits gun violence and we've been studying them for years.

This guy has no agenda. He is completely unbiased. Take his work seriously.

What a shame that science and medicine have been politicized.
