Medics start #ThisIsMyLane to hit back at NRA with gun trauma stories

NRA Tells Doctors to 'Stay in Their Lane'

The NRA was addressing a recent study from the American College of Physicians that suggests more government action be taken to reduce injury and death from guns.

"It is in the NRA's best interest to help us be part of the solution", Sher said.

The position paper, published October 30, updates previous calls by the ACP - the world's largest society of specialty physicians - on efforts to reduce gun violence, including protecting the right of physicians to speak with patients about safe gun storage and advocating for evidence-based policies to reduce fire-arm injuries and deaths. They show how the stunned public responses to the October 27 carnage in a Pittsburgh synagogue and then the November 7 shooting in a Thousand Oaks country music bar fail to reflect the everyday routine of trying to resuscitate victims in emergency rooms in Baltimore and beyond. "This is me in #mylane, @NRA", @nurielmoghavem tweeted, accompanied by an X-ray image of a patient's torso. Half of the articles written n Annals of Internal Medicine are pushing for gun control.

Whether doctors should be conducting research on gun violence has been the subject of intense debate between the medical community and pro-gun groups like the NRA for years.

"Most upsetting, however, the medical community seems to have consulted NO ONE but themselves". "Someone should tell self-important anti-gun doctors to stay in their lane", the NRA tweeted on Thursday. We are the ones who see the children caught in the cross-fire, who didn't get a chance at life because someone did not care as much for the life of a child as their right to carry a gun.

While the photos are disturbing to look at, some gun control advocates have argued that showing the horrific reality of the 67,000 gunshot wounds, 32,000 gun deaths that happen annually in the U.S.is a necessary step toward enacting far-reaching reforms.

Judge extends Palm Beach county recount submission deadline to November 20th
Nelson on Tuesday also renewed Democratic calls for Scott to recuse himself from any official duties related to the recount. Which could mean to tens of thousands of votes being uncounted in races where the difference is a fraction of that amount.

The NRA tweet prompted many physicians to post on social media about their frequent experiences treating patients in the aftermath of gun violence, many of them using the hashtag #ThisIsOurLane. My ex shot me because I left him. The @NRA needs to sit down.

Not surprisingly, doctors and nurses to took Twitter to criticize the NRA's comments. 'You have to be an experienced firearms owner and have some training to know about gun safety. Physicians don't unless they have that training.' For years, Haughey said she struggled to understand any upside to allowing people to have guns.

It goes without saying, but that statement really annoyed a number of doctors who remove bullets from patients and deal with the immediate and longer-term fall-out from gunshot wounds every day of their professional lives.

In an interview, Sidwell said the divisiveness made it hard to find the common ground necessary for improving gun safety.

And there won't be an end to it until doctors are satisfied, said Bob Doherty, an official with the American College of Physicians.
