See the video, beginning at 9:25:58.] Nearly a quarter century ago, a young surgeon (well, young by physician standards) discovered that firearm ownership was becoming vilified by the medical powers-that-were.  Anti-gun agenda-driven “studies” shocked him, like Kellerman’s 1993 New England Journal of Med...
