CDC Gun Research Backfires on Obama
http://www.gunsandammo.com ^ | August 27, 2013 | Kyle Wintersteen

Posted on 09/20/2013 3:54:46 PM PDT by Para-Ord.45

In the wake of the Sandy Hook tragedy, President Obama issued a list of Executive Orders. Notably among them, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) was given $10 million to research gun violence.

Here are some key findings from the CDC report, “Priorities for Research to Reduce the Threat of Firearm-Related Violence,” released in June:

1. Armed citizens are less likely to be injured by an attacker:

2. Defensive uses of guns are common:

3. Mass shootings and accidental firearm deaths account for a small fraction of gun-related deaths, and both are declining

4. “Interventions” (i.e, gun control) such as background checks, so-called assault rifle bans and gun-free zones produce “mixed” results

5. Gun buyback/turn-in programs are “ineffective” in reducing crime.

6. Stolen guns and retail/gun show purchases account for very little crime.

7. The vast majority of gun-related deaths are not homicides, but suicides.

The CDC report is overall a blow to the Obama Administration’s unconstitutional agenda. It largely supports the Second Amendment, and contradicts common anti-gun arguments. Unfortunately, mainstream media failed to get the story they were hoping for, and their silence on the matter is a screaming illustration of their underlying agenda.

Obviously the ‘Great One’ didn’t like this. Why else would a study paid for by my tax dollars cost money?

Someday, we'll have a free press again.

Why don’t we all send copies of the report to Feinstein, Schumer, etc.

I am sooooo proud of the group I am associated with. The CDC is simply the best, most nonpartisan Federal agency out there. They don't really care WHAT the administration wanted -- they went to the science. The science shows what the science shows, and GOD BLESS THE MEN AND WOMEN OF THE CDC FOR STAYING TRUE TO REAL SCIENCE!!!!!

I wanted to put this in font size 7, bold, but I kept my voice more 'muted'... lol

7. The vast majority of gun-related deaths are not homicides, but suicides.

Too bad they didn't get a couple of statistics in there regarding the percentage of deaths resulting from gangbangers shooting each other or being shot by cops.

How they statistically refer to some of the domestic-savages as "children"

And how the gangbanger killings are serious enough to skew the life expectancy statistics in the US.

"The Great One" is Mark Levin's handle.

Folks derisively refer to Obama as "The One".

It works for anti-gun libs too, but they're too screwed up and indoctrinated to understand that.

I don't doubt things are going to get worse, editor-surveyor, but they're not going to stay that way. In the first place, Marxists are looters and armed robbers and rapists and arsonists and extortionists, not builders or inventors or managers or nurses, and in the second, we're builders and inventors and managers and nurses and normal people, not serfs.

They've already destroyed our constitutional republic; actually ruling us, however, is an altogether different matter.

I would say that the priority is to recognize that urban minority males between say 18-30 are rather disproportionately prone to gun (and other forms of) violence. The next step is to actually do something about it. The media will not acknowledge this fact, even when it screams from the pages of the Uniform Crime Reports published by, OBTW, Attorney General Holder's Justice Department in the administration of President Obama.

I have the report at work and even if you throw in the gang bangers suicides are still the biggest amount.

10 million dollars needed to look up statistics and compile them into a study on guns?
I am in the wrong line of work.

Thanks Para-Ord.45. But hey, Zero knew that, which is why he handed weapons over to those poor defenseless Mexican druglords.

This data needs to be read into the record of every State and local government lawmaking body with which to hold them accountable for results.

“I would say that the priority is to recognize that urban minority males between say 18-30 are rather disproportionately prone to gun (and other forms of) violence.”

That is the elephant in the room that nobody wants to talk about. That would require that liberals admit their policies have been a disaster ever since the “Great Society”.

It’s far easier to talk in platitudes and disarm law abiding citizens.

Frankenswine and upchuck shroomer would require the report to be translated into coloring book or speak n spell format because they’re too stupid to even figure out how velcro works, never mind reading a report meant for adults to understand.

If the were able to read then they would understand the meaning of “Shall not be infringed”.
