MARCO RUBIO’s HYPOTHESIS: Those against gun bans “want to prevent mass shootings, too. They view banning guns as an infringement on the Second Amendment rights of law abiding citizens that ultimately will not prevent these tragedies.”.
This is called the Scientific Method. To test his hypothesis (which means millions of lives), research is required.
RESEARCH BIAS; Rubio has an A+ rating from the gun rights group for supporting NRA-friendly legislation. According to the New York Times, he has received $3.3 million from the group. (Research bias,performing the research influence the results to portray a certain outcome.)
Since actual scientists disagree with his Hypotheis, perhaps more research is needed. “You would see drastic reductions in what I call gun massacres” with the return of the 1994 federal assault weapons ban, said Louis Klarevas of the University of Massachusetts at Boston.
Most Americans disagree Many “surveys show bans on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines are popular with general public. A 2017 Pew Research Center poll found that 68 percent of adults favor banning assault weapons, and 65 percent support a ban on high-capacity magazines.”
More research to continue unchecked access to AR15 weapons, high capacity magazines, hollow tip and unjacketed buckets given the observable impact on the health and #safety of society. A full repeal of Dickey with funding is the position of the medical community and scientists.
The American Medical Association (AMA) adopted policy calling gun violence in the United States "a public health crisis" requiring a comprehensive public health response and solution. WE CAN DO BETTER!!!! #sciencenotpolitics #enough #gunreform
“As physicians, we have dedicated our lives to public health. And at the AMA, our mission is improving the health of the nation. That mission today must include determining the root causes of this epidemic and turning the tide on gun violence.” wire.ama-assn.org/ama-news/actio…
I restate my conviction, as as an ethical stand, in the interest of my patients with full disclose I have no financial or other interest only #publichealth

1) Ban AR-15 style HIGH VELOCITY rifles

2) Prohibit large-capacity magazines > 10 rounds.

3) Reinstate CDCRepeal Dickey
But as a doctor and a scientist, I would be far more comfortable with actual research dictating policy that affects the health and well-being of millions. #publichealth #gunreform #docs4gunsense
