Regarding the April 8 cover story “Gun violence: Another public health crisis?” (Nurse.com/Article/Gun-Violence): I spent the past 25 years in emergency medicine.

Part of that time was spent at a children’s hospital in a supporting role to nurses. I prepared babies who had been in the way of assault weapons for the morgue. It’s so sad that nurses are not getting out in front of this issue.

I am shocked and dismayed ED nurses are not fighting to get assault weapons banned.
