Quote:There has been PLENTY of research on guns done by other people aside from CDC. One of the controversies is that gun violence is not a disease, so it's hard to sometimes justify their studies. Regardless, this study WAS authorized by Obama and done upon his request. So, there were some good and bad findings.
car crashes etc. They are not involved in the crime aspect of it but the danger to health. Do not let the name fool you. It was mad political by Republicans that did not want a result that put them in trouble with their base. Few others want the CDC to stop looking into various non-disease related issues like alcohol deaths, cars etc. Just saying.
And what private studies? There are all manner of studies but typically policy is made off of academic studies and government ones. Because they are the most open (for the most part). Privately funded studies by groups with varying levels of direct conflicts of interest are hardly telling.
That said, the evidence available does support gun control more than arming everybody. Which the later, ironically, is more likely to occur at the moment.
