SHOOTING: Too many guns are in circulation

After 35 years as an emergency room doctor, I have seen the horrible carnage guns have wrought on way too many occasions. I was even shot at on duty.

The victims range from homicides and accidents to suicides. The shooters were drunk, stoned, crazy or depressed. When the founders wrote about “a well regulated Militia,” they never meant this craziness.

I am firmly convinced that gun violence is directly proportional to the number of guns in circulation. Look at all other developed nations and their gun policies. Why do we need to be different? We must fix this.
