The United States Surgeon General, Dr. Vivek Murthy, has released his first “Surgeon General’s Advisory on Firearm Violence,” declaring firearm violence in America as a public health crisis. A blatant attempt to evade the Constitution’s Second Amendment and disarm the law-abiding citizenry using another “crisis” to give the federal government additional funding and powers unavailable under the U.S. Constitution.

If Dr. Vivek Murthy were an honest broker and respected evidence-based medicine, he would realize that it is a very small cohort of individuals that are committing gun violence and, except for suicide, the majority of violence is being perpetrated by the progressive communist democrat coalition of criminals, significant those involved in drug and sex trafficking, with major geolocation in black and minority communities.

Moreover, after filtering out suicides and gun-handling accidents, you are left with criminals, crazies, and terrorists who neither respect nor obey the law. Objective, statistical proof of this proposition can be found in progressive communist democrat-governed inner cities where felony gun charges are plea-bargained away, and authorities are reluctant to incarcerate offenders to avoid the faux racist optics of jailing more blacks and minorities, even if these cohorts statistically commit a disproportionate amount of gun crime. These progressive communist democrat-governed communities are likely to have some of the strictest gun control laws in the nation and a substantial black or minority presence in the governing structure, including law enforcement.

U.S. Surgeon General Issues Advisory on the Public Health Crisis of Firearm Violence in the United States

Washington, D.C. – Today, United States Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy released a landmark Surgeon General’s Advisory on Firearm Violence, declaring firearm violence in America a public health crisis. Firearm violence is pervasive, with more than half (54 percent) of U.S. adults or their family members having experienced a firearm-related incident in their lives. Over the last decade, the number of people who have died from firearm-related injuries, including suicides, homicides, and accidental deaths, has been rising, and firearm violence is now the leading cause of death among children and adolescents.

This new Advisory is the first publication from the Office of the Surgeon General dedicated to firearm violence and its consequences for the health and well-being of the American public. The advisory details the impact of gun violence beyond death and injury, describing the layers of cascading harm for youth, families, communities, and other populations. With nearly 6 in 10 U.S. adults worrying “sometimes,” “almost every day,” or “every day,” about a loved one being a victim of firearm violence, the effects of the public health crisis extend well beyond physical health – it has led to a collective trauma across society that warrants heightened attention.

Firearm violence is an urgent public health crisis that has led to loss of life, unimaginable pain, and profound grief for far too many Americans,” said U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy. “We don’t have to continue down this path, and we don’t have to subject our children to the ongoing horror of firearm violence in America. All Americans deserve to live their lives free from firearm violence, as well as from the fear and devastation that it brings. It will take the collective commitment of our nation to turn the tide on firearm violence.”

While further research is needed to better understand firearm violence and its impacts, we can promote programs, policies, and practices right now that create safer conditions for the American people. This requires leveraging community leaders, working closely with at-risk populations, and educating the public on key protective actions. An all-of-society effort is required to help create safer conditions, build healthier communities, and save lives.

[OCS: No further research is needed, and we understand criminal activity and its remedy.] 

Bottom line …

We know all about criminals, crazies, and terrorists and how to control them. Likewise, we know about progressive communist democrats who want to deny law-abiding citizens the means of self-protection-- and we know how to prevent them. Vote as if your life and the lives of your family depended on it because it indeed does. Do not become part of an even larger victim pool, begging for your life.

We are so screwed.
