Pediatricians Take on the NRA Over Gun Safety

For the past three decades, writes The Daily Beast, the American Academy of Pediatrics has been an outspoken voice on the issue of gun control, a position that has landed it on the NRA’s (admittedly very long) list of enemies. For its part, the National Rifle Association (NRA) says pediatricians have no business talking about gun laws. Now, the AAP has started to focus on how to realistically reach parents in red states as well as blue—and to soften some of its language on gun control.
