Bill Stalls That Would Allow The CDC To Study Gun Violence As A Health Epidemic

posted on February 13, 2016

On Thursday, a bill that would lift restrictions on funding anti-gun research by the Centers for Disease Control went before House committee. This represented the fourth attempt to advance the measure, HR 3926, which was introduced in November by U.S. Rep. Mike Honda with 74 sponsors—all Democrats, many from New York and California. 

While Honda claims that current regulations prevent “some of the smartest problem-solvers in our nation” from helping to combat gun violence, we’ve seen what happens when the CDC is allowed free reign to spend our tax dollars “studying” gun violence.  

“Americans should be able to trust an organization that claims its goal is an unbiased approach to public health,” NRA’s Chris Cox said. Fortunately, despite support from anti-gun groups such as the Brady Campaign, many lawmakers saw the bill for what it was, and a party-line vote by Republican congressmen prevented the bill from going to the floor. It currently remains in committee.
