    gun violence research has been stopped for CDC and other federal agencies, yanked funding. rachel maddow had story on this last night.

    At one time, the Atlanta-based Centers for Disease Control was at the forefront in that debate, dedicated to addressing gun violence as a matter of public health. But gun rights advocates cried foul, accusing the CDC of practicing politics rather than science, and Congress agreed, stripping the agency of funding for gun-related research.

      needs to be publicized...widely and reversed.

      it's horrifying.  What are we coming to - Communist Soviet Union, Communist china, Burma, .... only slaves to corporations and/or industries.

      Disgusting.
