Don't confuse the issue by calling it "gun" violence. The problem is violence. Blaming the gun, although simple & we-are-doing-something feel-good, is absurd and detracts from dealing with the real problem. I would hope that our AMA leadership would be wiser than our politicians whose feel-good answer to every problem is to pass another law to further restrict our freedoms.
