The gun control debate has been going on for centuries in our nation. Clear back to the framers of the United States Constitution who first wrote the Second Amendment citing that private citizens has a right to “keep and bear arms”. It heightened after President John F. Kennedy was shot. But today it is at a public health crisis.
Fact: for people under 25, deaths caused by gun-related injuries are 2X that of cancer, 5X that of heart disease & 15X that of infections. That’s why over 80 medical groups agree that gun violence is a public health issue. #EndGunViolence Source: gunviolenceawarenessmonth.com/toolkit
