Gun advocacy groups are doing more to hurt the image of responsible ownership and use, than they are to help it.

Its obvious to anyone who isn’t hoarding guns and ammo.

I never knew there was a ban on this in the first place.
Um, who the hell would allow a ban on gun violence research? LOL!

Why would any sane person ban research on any kind of violence especially gun violence? It makes no sense.

The same sort of people who try to limit science generally.

Gun ownership is a faith to many people. It is a good thing to own and use firearms. Any research into the matter might contradict this belief in exactly the same way that research into fetal development might contradict the ‘pro-life’ stance.

Therefore there can be no research into the matter. Research is a danger to the faith.

Sure it does: the CDC is supposed to focus on disease research. Firearms policy is not within its purview.

Why?

The CDC studies all sorts of health concerns - environmental, accident prevention, trauma, suicide, child abuse, etc. Your sudden interest in the definition of ‘disease’ because it happens to be mentioned in the name has nothing to do with good science or scope of practice, but rather in your knee-jerk response to defend anything you think your team stands for, which is gun worship in this case.

re: #5 Dark_Falcon

So I guess based on its name, you’d be content to suspend funding for things like:
Emergency Preparedness and Response
emergency.cdc.gov
Injury, Violence & Safety
cdc.gov
Environmental Health
cdc.gov
at the CDC?
What about if they changed the name to the CDGC? Would it be OK then for them to conduct research on gun violence or are you against any sort of government research of that sort?

Right, if I were a gun owner, I’d loathe the NRA and other groups like it because the NRA and like minded groups make gun owners as a whole look like irresponsible lunatics.

Bull shit.

re: #9 b_sharp

My response exactly to #5

What is it about guns that creates this kind of pathetic non-thinking and tries to pass it off as logic?

11 FemNaziBitch  Sat, Dec 14, 2013 5:11:22pm

The ban was pushed thru by those who don’t want any negative research presented regarding private firearm ownership. Of course, any such research would be biased and all part of the marxist kenyan plan to disarm Law-Abiding Citizens.

It’s bad for business.

re: #5 Dark_Falcon

And BTW I don’t down-ding you (or anyone) lightly, Dark
- It’s that I’ve read enough of your posts to know you’re not stupid, far from it, yet you came out with a talking point you should have recognized as the turd-burger it is.
But it fitted your tribal/team outlook so you didn’t bother even thinking it through
