    The CDC and Gun Control

    Ran across this today.

    http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/Gun...7/20/id/516128

    Seems we spent $10 million on something we already knew.
    "Laws that forbid the carrying of arms...disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed one." Thomas Jefferson (quoting Cesare Beccaria)

    The CDC and Gun Control

    It's crazy how the goberment needs to spend all this money to figure out what most people already know. Plus why would he appoint the CDC to head this "study"?

    Government doesn't do studies to find out. Government does studies to support its initiatives or refute the opposition. Science politicized.

    The CDC study was likely by someone not overly impressed with the regime's position on gun control and who also felt a bit secure in their job.

    But, do notice that whoever wrote that summary was not totally insensitive to the government's intentions. They wrote that whether gun restrictions work to reduce crime is an unresolved issue.
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    The study was done as one if Obama's 23 gun control executive orders after the sandy hook incident.

    14. “Issue a presidential memorandum directing the Centers for Disease Control to research the causes and prevention of gun violence.”

    I have sent this to a troubling representative in our State gov. Just like to keep antis informed. You never know, they may see the light with more evidence.
    "Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the people's liberty teeth (and) keystone... the rifle and the pistol are equally indispensable... more than 99% of them by their silence indicate that they are in safe and sane hands. The very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference .When firearms go, all goes, we need them every hour." -- George Washington

    Numerous studies have already been done by the CDC's Morditity group ... investigating deaths caused by firearms. The Injury Prevention group has also looked into firearm deaths. So have others.

    I have not read the recent, presidential study, but it gathered no new data or no new vast amount of data. If they wanted to do this right, it would have been a 10 yr study.

    The state of CA also requires testing of handguns to insure their "safety" and no handgun is known to the state to have failed their required testing and CA has put on their "approved" list tens of thousands of handguns over time. Its now clear that the CA testing requirements now have nothing to do with safety and all to do with trying to limit gun ownership.

    The results of all these studies and testing results in a conclusion that guns are basically safe instruments and that deaths are either from suicide, horseplay, and criminal activity. Not from ordinary folks carrying. But public officials do not care...they are antis for the most part.
