Common Sense, which is far from common,  would tell a entity not to pontificate on subject on which they are incompetent.   So evidently the American Medical Association lacks common sense, from Washington Free Beacon:

American Medical Association announced on Wednesday it would back strict new gun-control measures including banning and confiscating certain firearms.

The measures, which the group called “common-sense,” include outlawing not only the sale of what the group referred to as “assault-type” weapons but also their possession, outlawing the possession of any firearms by adults under 21 years old, a national gun registry, requiring a license to own any firearms, and gun buyback programs among a number of other proposals. The group also called for a ban on the possession of bump-fire stocks, stated its opposition to teachers being allowed to carry firearms in schools, and stated its opposition to national concealed-carry reciprocity. The group also called for the passage of a law which would bar those convicted of domestic violence offenses from owning guns even though federal law already includes such a provision.

“People are dying of gun violence in our homes, churches, schools, on street corners and at public gatherings,

What the media, and the AMA, call Assault Weapons, are more aptly called modern sporting rifles, guns are affordable,  customizable,  easy to use and effective.   So, before the AMA starts telling the American citizen to curb their God given constitution rights to keep and bear arms, the AMA needs to get their own house in order, from Right Diagnosis:

Deaths from Medical misadventure: 98,000 preventable deaths from medical errors annually in America (Patient Safety in American Hospitals, Health Grades 2004)

More Americans, and that counting only those lucky enough to be born, die from medical maladventure than do to gun fire. So physician, heal thyself.
