Neurosurgery Leadership Featured in Article on Gun Safety Legislation

On June 24, the AANS and the CNS issued a press release praising Congress for passing the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act (S. 2938 (117)). Subsequently, Becker’s Spine Review published an article titled, “Neurosurgeons laud Congress for passing gun safety legislation,” featuring Ann R. Stroink, MD, FAANS, AANS president and Nicholas C. Bambakidis, MD, FAANS, president of the CNS. This legislation will expand background checks, restrict certain individuals from owning guns and provide incentives for states to enact “red-flag” programs.
