Faux Medical Groups Call For Restoration Of CDC Gun-Control Funding

posted on April 8, 2016

More than 100 so-called “medical” groups called for an end to the ban on federal funding for gun-control efforts by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

In reality, the list is padded with political advocacy groups, such as five chapters of Physicians for Social Responsibility, Research!America, the Big Cities Health Coalition and the Colorado Public Health Association (whose website says it’s “working on a new Vision & Mission,” but “aspires to be the Voice of Public Health in Colorado”).

The letter to the House and Senate Appropriations Committees was released by Doctors for America, another self-described “progressive” activist group. In addition to lobbying for safe storage and background checks, the letter asks, “What should be the trigger pull on a firearm so a toddler can’t use it?”

The CDC’s opposition to gun rights prompted Congress to bar it from using taxpayer funds for gun-control efforts in 1997. Since then, CDC advocates have attempted to cast gun crime as a public health issue in order to remove those restraints. Even with the ban, the CDC still published 121 articles on gun violence in 2013.
