A technical advisory committee of physicians, under the auspices of the California Medical Association (CMA), has identified opportunities and resources that may help physicians in addressing gun violence as a public health issue. They include asking your patients about firearms when appropriate and following through to keep them safe; educating yourself and your patients about the benefits and risks of firearm ownership and safety practices; recognizing warning signs of mental illness; and understanding your legal obligations for reporting specified medical conditions and the clinical interventions that might restrict a patient’s ability to possess a firearm.
