Dems Want To Spend $60 Million On Bogus Gun Studies

posted on April 7, 2017

When you’ve run through every trick in the playbook, what do you do? For Democrats, they simply circle back around and try, try again. Their latest unsurprising gesture has them returning to the old saw of restoring funding to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for “firearm research.” 

On Tuesday, 30 Senate and House Democrats introduced Senate Bill 834 that would provide funding for the CDC to the tune of $10 million per year for at least six years. The measure is backed by Sen. Edward Markey and Rep. Carolyn Maloney, who supported similar bills in 2014 and 2015. If the bill is approved, Guns.com notes that it would be the largest amount of funding allocated for federal gun-use research since 1996. 

As we’ve reported here at A1F, the CDC’s research in the 1990s was nothing more than a well-coordinated effort to discredit and disarm America’s gun owners. And there’s no reason to believe new research would be any less biased or bogus.
