In a news conference Monday a D.C. doctor made a poignant plea to ending gun violence in America.

Dr. Janis Orlowski, chief operating officer of Washington Hospital Center, which treated several of the Navy Yard victims, said: "We need to do whatever we can — to have people argue, to have people disagree — this is something we've got to work on together. ... We've got to stop it."

Orlowski also said, "I'd like you to put my trauma center out of business. I'd like to not be an expert on gun shots..."

Her comments were remarkably candid and included, "It's a great city, a great country and we have to work together to get rid of this...we've got figure it out."
