An Interview with Dr. John Edeen MD
The Safety Solutions Academy Podcast Interview Shows are intended to help and bring a new viewpoint to the discussions that SSA typically has regarding personal safety, self-defense and defensive shooting. Today’s guest does a great job of that.
Dr. John Edeen, MD is a pediatric orthopedic surgeon currently in practice in San Antonio, Texas. Dr. Edeen is a veteran of the United States Navy.
John is a hunter, a defensive shooter, a concealed carry permit holder, an NRA Instructor, has dabbled in competitive shooting and is a self proclaimed defensive training junkie.
I met John in NE Ohio when he attended a course hosted by Safety Solutions Academy and we have kept in touch since.
Dr. Edeen is currently serving as the membership director of Doctors for Responsible Gun Ownership and has placed a significant amount of effort in helping to spread the word and the message about DRGO. You can view his media page here.
What We Discuss:
As a person and as a parent I am relatively attentive to safety. In fact, I would say that I routinely err on the side of personal safety and security in the choices that I make for myself and in my family.
That hasn’t stopped my kids for choosing otherwise.
Don’t get me wrong. My kids aren’t reckless. They are normal healthy, active kids. That means from time to time we have injuries to deal with. Over the past few years between the two of them, we have had 3 fractures to deal with.
Today’s conversation with Dr. Edeen goes beyond guns. We talk about how John got involved in guns, kids and injury prevention, athletic injury, the Second Amendment and the Medical Profession, why hospitals should permit concealed carry, DRGO and much more.
What You Should Do Next:
Visit DRGO.us. Doctors for Responsible Gun Ownership is an organization that goes well beyond doctors. It is focused on providing information and expanding the rights of anyone that is involved with the medical profession. That is all of us.
Take a few minutes to consider if there are ways you can help your kids lead a safer life. That trampoline you have? Yeah, you are better off selling it to a pedophile on craigslist than keeping it…
