More than 32,000 people die each year in the U.S. as a result of guns, making them the second leading injury-related cause of death after motor vehicle crashes. In response to the continued high number of gun fatalities and injuries, one of the nations largest physicians' groups has released recommendations aimed at preventing unnecessary deaths. The key, they say, is moving the conversation about gun violence beyond just politics and the courts.
We concluded that firearm violence is not just a criminal justice issue, but also a public health threat that requires the nations immediate attention, said Dr. Thomas Tape, chair of the American College of Physicians(ACP) Health and Public Policy Committee, in a press release.As an organization representing physicians who have first-hand experience with the devastating impact of firearm-related violence, ACP has a responsibility to participate in efforts to mitigate needless tragedies.

Didn't someone say on another thread that 80,000 people die each year from alcohol? That makes your cut & paste inaccurate.
We need to ban booze before we tackle guns.
