AMA adopts sweep­ing call to re­duce US gun vi­o­lence

USA TODAY International Edition - - FRONT PAGE -

The Amer­i­can Med­i­cal As­so­ci­a­tion on Tues­day pressed for a ban on as­sault weapons and came out against arm­ing teach­ers as a way to fight what it calls a pub­lic health cri­sis.

At its an­nual meet­ing in Chicago, the group bowed to de­mands from doc­tor-mem­bers to take a stronger stand on gun vi­o­lence – a prob­lem the or­ga­ni­za­tion says is as men­ac­ing as a lethal in­fec­tious dis­ease.
