Statistically, mentally ill people are more likely to be victims of violence than commit violence. To reduce gun violence, we must address availability of #guns & complex cultural issues. We can't focus on the molehill when the mountain's right there. ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/P…
We also unfairly overburden psychiatric professionals by making them responsible & accountable for preventing gun crime. Gun violence still disproportionately harms communities of color, & our failure to invest in social and physical infrastructure perpetuates the cycle.
Our most common psychiatric diagnoses (depressive, anxiety, & attention-deficit disordres) have no correlation w/violence. While I agree w/having trained mental health professionals in schools, that won't stop gun violence. We must change our culture. #NeverAgain #GunReformNow

📍injuries & deaths
📍mass shootings
📍defensive gun use
📍hunting participation

So what does the evidence show?

The result of a bullet ricocheting inside the skull and destroying the brain on CT scan. The worst trauma I have seen. GUNS ARE A PUBLIC HEALTH ISSUE – Gen Geller MD, NY #docs4gunsense @drgenngeller
The damage a bullet does to a 1 year old brain as it ricochets back and for. The guilt the family feels. The sadness we all feel.
