we're a "gunsick" nation

Just finished an assignment covering a gun violence forum at a local hospital. The trauma surgeon is talking about his plans for treating gun violence as a public health issue and the gentleman below leads out an injury prevention center.

Listening to them speak was truly interesting and moving. Sadly the NRA thinks the solution for the problem is more guns. And public awareness and funding is not up to the task of supporting groups like "Guns Down, Life Up" that works on multiple levels to reduce violence among mainly minority young people.

We're a "lovesick" nation in love with our guns = a truly "gunsick" nation.
