New England Journal Of Medicine Proposes Easy Solutions For Problems It Admits Have No Easy Solutions

posted on June 24, 2016

On Wednesday, the New England Journal of Medicine wrote, “Gun violence is a complicated problem.” Referencing mass shootings, suicides, homicides and accidents, the Journal warned, “Any group—on any part of the political spectrum—promising an easy solution and speaking absolutes does not grasp the reality.”

The Journal then proposed its own easy solutions: “Although these four types of gun violence have varied root causes and solutions, easy access to guns is a unifying thread;” “universal background checks should be instituted for every gun sale in every setting in this country;” and “A first common-sense step would be a renewed ban on ‘assault weapons.’” 

However, the 78 percent of docs who do not belong to leftist medical groups (like the AMA) question how “universal” background checks will stop killers who pass background checks; how they will prevent criminals who buy guns on the street from getting them; and how a ban on popular rifles that are used in less than 2 percent of violent crime will stem gun crime.
