In a guest column in The Buffalo News, Philip L. Glick, MD, MBA, professor of surgery, and Iris Danziger, MD, clinical assistant professor of otolaryngology, both at the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, write in the absence of laws restricting the sale of tactical gear and assault weapons to civilians, society can be better prepared to save the lives of innocent victims by following guidance from the American College of Surgeons. “With three quick actions – call 911, find the bleeding site and compress/apply pressure – you can be trained to save a life. And when indicated, you can be trained to apply a combat application tourniquet,” they wrote.
