Hot New Idea: Doctors Should Be Trained to Determine Who is “Fit” to Carry a Gun

Concealed carry permit holders aren’t the people carrying out mass shootings or gang murders.

Remember when I warned about the dangers of President Obama’s Surgeon General nominee Vivek Murthy? Here’s another reason why the National Rifle Association and even pro-Second Amendment Democrats have lined up together to oppose his nomination: the Left wants doctors trained to determine who is “fit” to carry a firearm. More on this proposal and study being used to justify the move from The Atlantic:

The American Medical Association, the American College of Physicians and U.S. Surgeon General nominee Vivek Murthy are calling gun violence a public health crisis.

North Carolina is among the states where law enforcement can ask physicians to sign off on competency permits, but a recent survey of the state’s doctors shows many of them worry they may not be equipped to judge their patients’ physical and mental ability to handle concealed guns safely. The U.S. currently lacks training programs and comprehensive standards to guide doctors in making such assessments, so physicians are reduced to using their best clinical judgment.
