In the article, the American College of Physicians provides a slew of recommendations – for doctors and lawmakers – that they believe can help combat America’s rampant gun violence.
Recommendations include training doctors in firearms injury prevention and counseling patients on the ‘risk of having firearms in the home’.

While the NRA’s tweet received a mountain of criticism, the organization appeared unfazed.
‘It’s just another example of gun control advocates with the help of the mainstream media blaming law-abiding gun owners for the criminal acts of deranged people and exploiting tragedy to push a gun control agenda that would not prevent these crimes,’ NRA spokeswoman Jennifer Baker told CNN.
‘The gun control policies they advocate for are already the law in California and they did not prevent tragedy,’ she added, referring to last week’s massacre at Borderline.
But Bob Doherty, the SVP of the American College of Physicians, said the responses to the NRA’s tweet showed it was clear Americans wanted something to change.
‘Judging by the thousands of replies posted to this @NRA tweet, doctors don’t agree that they “should stay in their lane” and not talk about solutions to gun violence,’ he wrote. ‘Nor does the public.’
