14. “Issue a presidential memorandum directing the Centers for Disease Control to research the causes and prevention of gun violence.”

Good.

The meltdown from the RWNJs is pure comedic gold. They are in pure panic mode “thinking” (I use the term graciously) the President is now “grabbing guns”. Jebus, talk about the inability to grasp reality.

This is crap, touchy feelly librull nonsense, Doctors are not supposed to be snooping into non medical issues. And I am no RW gun toting nutjob

re: #2 Shvaughn

I thought the CDC was supposed to deal with medical & biological issues, not guns. Once again, they are using inappropriate institutions to deal with an unrelated issue

Not entirely accurate:

The CDC focus national attention on developing and applying disease prevention and control (especially infectious diseases and foodborne pathogens and other microbial infections), environmental health, occupational safety and health, health promotion, injury prevention and education activities designed to improve the health of the people of the United States

Executive order 14 would fall under: health promotion, injury prevention, and education.

Ok, but I still think there is a more appropriate venue than the CDC

Disagree
Doctors respond to what they see. And ER/Trauma doctors see enough gun crime carnage to have a perfectly legitimate voice in this debate.

Gun violence is a medical & biological issue.

re: #5 RabbitRunner

You do realize that firearms pose a public health issue. Anyone injured by firearms is a cost borne by society at large - burdening a health care delivery system. Those are costs that are quantifiable and measurable over time.

Reduce the number of firearms injuries - whether self-inflicted or from criminal activities, and you can reduce the resulting health care costs.

Let me guess. It’s prayer, right?

For example.

I admit that I am not comfortable with my doctor asking me about the guns I own, and I would decline to answer. I dislike questions that I feel intrude into personal business that I am not actually seeing the doctor about.

I’m sensing bullshit here.

You couldn’t really think that Liberal is spelled with a U, huh?
