vivekEmily Miller over at the Washington Post has done a nice write up on why President Obama’s choice for surgeon general is a nightmare for gun rights in America.

Dr. Vivek Murthy has proven himself to be anti-gun at several turns, though he has so far side stepped answering questions about his stance on gun rights to concerned senators.

According to Miller’s article (hit the link to read the whole thing, it’s good stuff),

Dr. Murthy is the 36-year-old president and co-founder of Doctors for America, a group that advocates for Obamacare and gun control laws.

The group calls gun violence “a public health crisis.” It pushes for Congress to ban “assault weapons” and “high-capacity” magazines and calls for spending tax dollars for more gun-control research.

The organization also lobbies for doctors to be allowed to ask patients, including minors, whether they have legal guns in the home. If the patient admits to having guns, Dr. Murthy wants doctors to “counsel them appropriately about safety measures.”

Murthy is, of course, also a big supporter of the Affordable Care Act (aka ObamaCare), but we won’t get off topic into discussing that here.

If confirmed, Murthy may be one of the most partisan appointments to the position of surgeon general in history.

Why don’t we take a look at some of the disturbing tweets from Murthy’s Twitter page?
