Dear Dr. Faria and all the doctors at AAPS,
There are those of us out here who are disgusted with the "pseudo-science" that is used in medical journals regarding the issue of handguns. The integrity of the medical profession is in jeopardy with our medical organizations taking politically correct positions that are unrelated to medicine. That is why I cannot join them.
There are some physicians, who, before they are doctors, are American citizens, and before that, are men. Men who believe in the duty to protect their wives and children from harm, and protect their communities from harm.
Now I know that there are other physicians out there who believe the same thing. And now that I know this, I have found a medical organization that I can join.
Thank you Dr. Faria, and keep the information coming.
Michael Creta, DO
