Urging Doctors to Talk to Patients about Guns

In an editorial in the Annals of Internal Medicine, Garen Wintemute, M.D., from the Violence Prevention Program at UC Davis, says that if Congress and the White House won't do anything to stop gun violence, doctors must take action. He urges physicians to make a public commitment to talk to their patients about firearms and counsel them on safe firearm behavior.

Do you agree that doctors should talk to their patients about guns?
