Sadly a typical view. So, we should blame cars for wrecks...forks for obesity....alcohol for kidney disease....since it's obvious that people aren't the problem. She's a professor?

Same old story.

Maybe mental health care should be more available, through spending more money for the mental health system.

Craziness.... She writes, " A much better indicator of whether someone will be violent is whether they come from a violent, poverty stricken environment, and whether they struggle with addiction. Eliminating poverty, domestic violence and childhood exposure to bloodshed would likely make a dent in our problem with gun violence". Why do the elites/media so easily say that violence is rooted in poverty, as though middleclass and rich people don't do stupid things! ...as though poor people don't grow up to be responsible, hard working citizens!

What she doesn't do is talk about the types of different types of gun violence. Surely the only meaningful example of gun violence that would further the case for 'Gun Control' would be otherwise lawful citizens using their legally obtained firearms to commit crimes? Unfortunately this would be a very small number! It wouldn't include suicide, lawful shootings by law enforcement or citizens defending themselves. Critically, it wouldn't include criminals shooting each other, as these people shouldn't have guns in the first place!

Well it does make Sense! Since if the Gun wasn't there then the tragedy would not have happened! How ever that like saying u car accident would never have happ if there were no cars.

She should stick to teaching medicine and stop pontificating on a subject she is all too lacking in knowledge.
Yup, although she should not be teaching at all.
