Seems there are some sensible folks within the AMA organization who believe AMA's anti-firearm rhetoric is just that rhetoric! [emphasis mine] quote: Doctors for Responsible Gun Ownership (DRGO) has a prescription for the American Medical Association’s (AMA) latest attack on gun rights. They want the doctors to take two doses of reality and call in the morning. The doctors note the AMA’s most recent announcement that it would pursue an “unprecedented” push for gun control is actually more of the same – a failed treatment for the wrong ailments. DRGO’s Dr. Robert B. Young highlighted that no more than 25 percent of America’s physicians are affiliated with the AMA, and it might partly be because of the organization’s anti-gun agenda that has little to do with healing and preventing illness but does chase after schemes to deprive rights. unquote.
