Credible

Interesting piece from a credible source. The article provides context and information as to what is and has been an ongoing debate on policy, laws and regulations regarding firearms related issues. Some readers may have a minor quibble with the following included quote: "As Dr. Stephanie Boone said, "I know that the house of medicine can fix this." This could be read by some as overly hyperbolic and veering close to self-aggrandizement.

This article only features quotes from one side of the argument on the gun control debate. That lost one star for me, but the other star was lost simply because I found the article hard to read, jumping from one unclear point to the next.

The headline is sensational and does not match the article. The article itself is broaching an extremely controversial subject; however, I always feel like people who wait for a shooting to talk about firearms have an agenda.

The headline doesn't seem to match the article very well. But it does uncover a lot of information from doctors and health officials in response to gun violence, defunded research on gun control, and more. Also, a statistic that mass shootings account for only 1% of gun-related deaths.
