Where will training in firearm tactics, mechanics, and ethics fit into the surgical training curriculum? How will the ACS remedy the institutional poverty of knowledge in our profession about the civil right of firearm ownership?
Until now, organized medicine’s involvement in firearm policy has proceeded with deliberate, even defiant ignorance of these vital issues. The failure of their approach shows in the general lack of any results other than creating and nurturing ill will among America’s 100 million gun owners.
ACS leadership should proceed with this project with these caveats in mind. Or better yet, not proceed at all.
