Our group is comprised of trauma surgeons, emergency room physicians, paediatricians, psychologists, nurses, paramedics and other health professionals; many of whom are also licenced firearms owners in Canada. We provide front-line healthcare and enjoy hunting, collecting and sport shooting in our personal lives. Many in our group have seen first hand what the criminal misuse of firearms can do to individuals, families and communities. Unlike some of our peers, our goal is to inform the Canadian public of the facts surrounding firearms ownership and use in Canada. We will not allow tragedies and criminal acts to define this important topic.
We will provide peer-reviewed evidence that the private ownership of firearms is not a detriment to the lives of Canadians, and which refutes the argument that firearms represent a growing public health threat.
We do not want gun anarchy. We want a coherent system of gun laws that are constitutional, effective, appropriately targeted, enforced, and cost-effective. These laws must severely deter and punish the violent criminal and negligent abuses of firearms while promoting the widespread dissemination of firearms safety and knowledge.
We remain willing to work tirelessly with any government or agency to achieve this goal.
Who Are We?
We are Canadian Doctors who reject the claim that firearms ownership is inherently dangerous to the Canadian public.
