And Direckshun pulls this old LIE out of his playbook.

The premise that the CDC is somehow prevented from doing research into gun violence is complete and total bullshit.

This is based on the complaints from leftists like Direckshun who don't like the fact that there is a law in place which prevents the CDC from funding studies that are solely purposed to advocate gun control.

People like him conveniently ignore the fact that the CDC DOES gun violence research all the time... they just don't like that it isn't the propaganda they expect.

Click this link and see for yourself.

And for those who missed it, here is the law that has Direckshun all hot and bothered...

Quote:
The Departments of Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act specifies that: "None of the funds made available for injury prevention and control at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention may be used to advocate or promote gun control."
So, basically, he wants YOUR money to be used to promote HIS agenda.

Hey Direckshun, how about we get the CDC to fund a study promoting prayer in school as it relates to increased social stability and mental health? Or better yet, you ok with the CDC funding a study that advocates for stricter prohibition on abortions because the people behind the "study" think life begins at conception?
