WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Last month’s Supreme Court ruling striking down a strict gun control law in the U.S. capital will lead to more deaths and accidental injuries, the editors of the New England Journal of Medicine said on Wednesday.
They joined a growing clamor from medical doctors, especially emergency room physicians, who fear a surge of accidental deaths, murders and suicides if handguns become more easily available than they already are.
Huh? I’m on the email lists for the two major EM organizations, and none of them have said a word about it. Oh, there’s one quote from one EM doc at the end of their article (and the NEJM, which has always been for gun control is quoted, again shockingly still for gun control) but there’s been no “increasing clamor” from EM docs about this.
Another reporter writing what they want, despite the facts.
