A Pediatrician's View on Gun Violence and Children
The Eddy Eagle program at the NRA is a valuable way to address this issue, notice how it was not even mentioned?! They really are not interested in a reasonable solution, they want more gun control. The myriad current law do little, but they really want more. OK, they really want gun confiscation.
More after the break.

Guns falling into the hands of real children which result in death or injury is always a tragedy. It is also rare. Most "children" injured by guns are either under age gangsters shooting each other, or innocents. This is no more a gun problem than bank robbers using a getaway car is a car problem. We have a drug problem, we have an inner city gang problem, both are interrelated, and both are violent. The solution is not elimination of guns. The solution is to eliminate the contraband. Then address the problems of the inner city. Neither can be addressed by progressivism, both are the creation of progressivism.
On the other hand, there is a problem facing doctors today, one which they studiously ignore while pontificating about the need for gun control, or other authoritarian control of we, the hoi polloi.
Physicians are the third leading cause of death in the US.
Physicians angry that they are the third leading cause of death in the US demand article retraction
Boy are they butthurt about being found out! It would seem that within this framework doctors would be a significant, and likely leading cause of death among children as well. Yet they foment about minutia.
Physician please remove the beam in your eye before worrying about the mote in ours.
The most dangerous man your child will see this year, or next, is their physician.
