    “13 recommendations from a workgroup of 22 surgeons (median experience of 28 years caring for trauma patients), 18 of whom are passionate firearm owners themselves representing a broad range of experience with firearm ownership and use. Hunters, sport shooters, self-defense proponents, law enforcement professionals, and surgeons with previous military experience”

    Too many vague issues. they reference "high velocity" weapons with no specifics. So is 9mm +p+, 10mm etc the same as a Barret 50bmg?

    How many recommendations should there be for blunt force trauma caused injuries. Rubber hammers?, Styrofoam baseball bats?, I'm pretty sure B.F.T.'s still cause more injuries/deaths than bang sticks combined.

    I found this interesting . While I do see vague terms, I believe this was to be foundational in nature , and serve as a baseline from which to build.

    That said, addressing the ambiguity and closing those gaps feels like an effort to boil the ocean.

    But I think you need to start somewhere. Go ahead addicts , i got my helmet on .
