America’s Top Doc Seeks ‘Middle Road’ On Guns

posted on April 27, 2015

Dr. Vivek Murthy was sworn in last Wednesday as the 19th U.S. surgeon general. And in an interview with The Washington Post, he discussed his plans to move the nation toward a “prevention-based society,” including continuing to raise the issue of gun violence as a public health issue.

“I'm not taking anything off of my agenda,” said Murthy. “I think the majority of the country recognizes that there is a middle road and the question is do we have the courage to find that road, and to walk down it.”

It’s clear that Murthy, who was opposed by the NRA given his lengthy history of anti-gun advocacy, will not carry out the mission of the office unmotivated by political agenda. “Murthy’s confirmation reminds our members and Second Amendment supporters everywhere, we must elect a pro-freedom president in 2016,” said NRA spokesperson Catherine Mortensen.
