Episode Description:

Deaths and injuries from firearms continue to shine a spotlight on gun violence as a public health issue. Physicians believe gun safety should be a routine part of preventive care and have put forth proposals to reduce gun violence in America. Yet the issue is a flashpoint for controversy: laws banning physician discussion about guns with their patients have been passed, and the nomination of the U.S. Surgeon General was delayed for months because of his position on guns. Should gun violence or gun safety be considered a public health issue like infectious disease, tobacco, obesity, or traffic safety? And, if so, what role should health care, and specifically physicians, play in advocacy?
