As a Trauma Surgeon and survivor of #GunViolence I cannot believe the audacity of the @NRA to make such a divisive statement. We take care of these patients everyday. Where are you when I’m having to tell all those families their loved one has died. @DocsDemand #Docs4GunSense
Someone should tell self-important anti-gun doctors to stay in their lane. Half of the articles in Annals of Internal Medicine are pushing for gun control. Most upsetting, however, the medical community seems to have consulted NO ONE but themselves. nraila.org/articles/20181102…

Our lane is patient care. As long as people survive (or not) shootings and live with the sequelae, as long as parents grieve an accidental death of a child, as long as suicidal impulses can be translated to near certain death because of guns, it's in our lane. AntiGSW, not Anti2A

As a trauma nurse, I'd just like to add that patient education is also our lane. The goal of healthcare is prevention, not just treat and repair.

"Keep your firearms locked &/or out of the reach of children" does not require training in gun safety and is in our lane, as are all home safety issues (throw rugs, grab bars in the tub, etc.).
