Here is our next update about DRGO activity during the past 4 weeks.
We were asked a lot of questions about the AMA’s new (old) stand for gun control, in spite of all the reasons that guns save lives. We were pleased to respond on behalf of the great many physicians and health care providers who understand these issues better than the career politicians in the AMA offices in Chicago.
Questions about how to deal with guns in the hands of dementing patients keep arising. Of course, the answer is “just like anything impaired cognition makes more dangerous”, with full respect for the 2nd Amendment right being infringed. This seems to be the next phase of the “restrict who can keep guns” plan for clamping down on gun ownership, along with 18-20 year olds who bear no resemblance to the extraordinarily rare young person who wants to kill classmates.
‘MarkPA’, the pen name of a man wise in the ways of data analysis and firearms, is contributing deep thinking on a variety of issues.
And we found that one mainstream medical news outlet, MedPage Today, under new editorial management, now shuns DRGO despite the cordial relationship we had previously when it was interested in both sides of the story. Yes, “Truth Dies in Darkness”, as the Washington Post puts it..
2Adoc.com, our referral program for 2A respecting physicians and health care practitioners who want to serve responsible gun owners is up and running. It continues to grow with more and more providers and requests for service.
Last, and most, we are especially grateful to those of you who (with our appreciation) repost or reprint our pieces and ask us for commentary on air and in print. Thanks to all of us, the truth will out!
With very best wishes,
