Actress Amanda Peet's sister practices internal medicine at an inner-city hospital in North Philadelphia, which sees about 500 gunshot-wound victims per year. Peet stated at the Feb. 6 press conference: “Despite these numbers, some people believe my sister should be prohibited from asking her patients about guns in their homes,” she said.
