Surgeon General Dr. Murthy meets with Gun-Free UT

Members of Gun-Free UT were treated to a private meet-and-greet with Dr. Vivek Murthy, U.S. Surgeon General and all-around smart, nice guy. He, in turn, was treated to his-and-hers Gun-Free UT t-shirts!

During Dr. Murthy’s talk an undergraduate asked if campus carry was a public health concern.   His answer:   ” My concern about this is when we push laws without fully understanding the public health impact they will have. You might ask ‘well, how should we know?’  Well, ideally this is the kind of thing we should invest research dollars in.”
