On November 7, 2018 the National Rifle Association (NRA) tweeted, “Someone should tell self-important anti-gun doctors to stay in their lane. Half of the articles in Annals of Internal Medicine are pushing for gun control. Most upsetting, however, the medical community seems to have consulted NO ONE but themselves.” This tweet was in response to the publication of “Reducing Firearm Injuries and Deaths in the United States: A Position Paper from the American College of Physicians.”1 On November 19, 2018, we sadly learned of the death of Dr. Tamara O’Neal, a member of our Resident and Student Association (AAEM/RSA), along with two others at Mercy Hospital, in Chicago. Just one year prior, we lost our own Dr. Kevin Rodgers, AAEM president from 2015-2017, to gun violence. He was a leader, friend, mentor, father, and husband, and is so dearly missed. It is now time for all of us to unite and put our political and cultural differences aside because we are not just treating this epidemic — we are the victims of this epidemic.
