Rabidly anti-gun doctor Vivek Murthy to be the next U.S. surgeon general

The Senate Monday voted to confirm President Obama’s nominee for U.S. surgeon general Dr. Vivek Murthy after more than a year of delays, according to multiple news reports.

He was confirmed in a 53-41 vote, that was split largely along party lines, with one Republican breaking ranks to support the nomination.

Republicans and the NRA strongly opposed Dr. Murthy’s nomination because he has stated that he believes guns are a public health issue, supporting stricter gun control measures, MSNBC reports.

On Monday, the NRA issued a statement confirming their opposition to Dr. Murthy.

“America’s next surgeon general should not be a political operative whose professional inexperience has been a source of bipartisan concern,” said NRA spokesman Andrew Arulanandam, according to MSNBC.

Senate Republicans, who largely voted against his nomination, agreed with the NRA.
