Medicine Grand Rounds - Guns and Public Health

This presentation examines the stark statistics around gun violence (homicide, suicide, unintentional death and non-fatal injuries) globally, nationally, by age groups and intentionality. Dr. Hemenway advocates a public health approach for reducing gun violence, using population based solutions and shared responsibilities to reduce the risk of harm, without necessarily changing gun ownership laws or access to mental health treatment. He emphasizes the importance of data collection to inform harm reduction strategies and education for gun sellers, organizations, and trainers where the message for safety carries respect and has credibility with gun owners.
