Doctors are mad about Rick Santorum's advice that students learn CPR
In short: CPR would not help victims of gun violence. "As a surgeon, I've operated on gunshot victims who've had bullets tear through their intestines, cut through their spinal cord, and pulverize their kidneys and liver," tweeted Eugene Gu, a resident physician at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. "Rick Santorum telling kids to shut up and take CPR classes is simply unconscionable." Santorum, a former U.S. senator from Pennsylvania, made the provocative comments about CPR and "phony gun laws" Sunday on CNN, a day after the March for Our Lives . The nationwide rallies drew hundreds of thousands of people demanding safer schools and tighter gun laws in response to the Feb. 14 shooting spree that left 17 dead at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla.

The United Kingdom and nations have accused the Kremlin of orchestrating the nerve-agent attack, which Russia has denied.
