What role if any should medicine, mental health care and public health play in diagnosing and seeking to prevent gun violence?  Should mental health providers try to screen their patients proactively to determine their risk profiles?  What ought we be doing in medicine to fund efforts to reduce suicides, domestic abuse and homicides that involve guns?
