<p>On Thursday, the <em>CBS Evening News</em> seized on the deadly shooting of two local news reporters in Roanoke, Virginia to promote the idea that gun control should be treated like<strong> &ldquo;a public health issue&rdquo;</strong> akin to seat belts, airbags, and anti-smoking campaigns.&nbsp;</p>

<p>In a tease early on in the program, fill-in anchor Maurice DuBois explained that <strong>&ldquo;[s]ome public health officials say gun violence, just like car accidents and smoking-related illnesses can be prevented or at least reduced.</strong>&rdquo; He then promised that <strong>&ldquo;[w]e&rsquo;ll have both sides of that issue later.&rdquo;</strong></p>
