For years, organized medicine has been misusing its authority to turn the public against firearms owners. Prestigious medical journals have abandoned their usually strict peer review standards to publish junk science articles written by anti-gun activists with medical degrees. Their purpose? As one pediatrician put it, to convince Americans that 64 guns are a virus to be eradicated."
Now Doctors for Responsible Gun Ownership and the Claremont Institute offer the antidote to the public health establishment's skewed science. Firearms: A Handbook for Health Professionals is a 25-page booklet that distills the latest criminology research on firearms and presents it in a reader friendly format for health professionals and the general reading public.
The Handbook is available for $5 per copy. Bulk orders are available at a discount and strongly encouraged. Place your order by calling (909) 621-6825 or see our announcement on the Claremont Institute's web page at www.claremont.org.
