Recent JAMA editorial “Silencing the Science on Gun Research”

While I don’t usually use this blog for political viewpoints, I did want to share this remarkable editorial regarding the gun lobby and medical research.

If you have been at all following the unimaginable tragedy that occurred recently in Newtown, Conn then this article in JAMA (Journal of American Medical Association) is worth the read. It highlights how even the medical community has been suppressed by the powerful gun lobby. If only there was such a coordinated effort for more noble causes like an HIV vaccine, solving global poverty or world peace.
