Dr. Webster, in your response to Dr. Moy, you said that access to the firearm market is a significant factor in the amount of violent crime perpetrated with firearms. Furthermore, in your study it suggested that total homicides increased, and that nearly all that increase was attributable to firearm deaths. Restriction from the firearm market seems to be the most sensible choice.
Considering the importance of the physician-patient relationship, should there be an obligation for physicians to take action, and see that access to the firearm market is denied when they believe that an individual should not be trusted with firearms? To clarify, I don’t mean to suggest that point is when a patient has announced a desire to harm themselves/others, as every physician should take action at that point, I am asking if physicians should be required to make a determination before that point?
