    Ever wonder why there are no governmental medical or public health studies on whether easy access to firearms mitigates or amplifies both the likelihood and consequences of these acts? Ever wonder why there have been no studies on the association between purchase of a handgun and the subsequent risk of homicide or suicide since the 1990s?

    Wonder no longer.

    Both The CDC and all of the Department of Health and Human Services agencies, including the National Institutes of Health, were told not to...not just TOLD not to COngressionally ordered not to.

    All courtesy of the NRA by way of pro-gun members of Congress.

    Even the US military has had it's hands tied when it comes to discussing gun violence.

    Florida and 7 other states are trying to restrict private doctors from discussing or recording information about firearm safety with a patient.

    The NRA somehow got the gun manufacturers in 2005 to be exempt from any civil liability due to their actions or products..

    The right is concerned about how David Gregory showed a high speed clip to LaPierre...

    They want Piers Morgan to be deported, because he is asking "hard" questions about guns..

    Today's an article in the WAPO...

    ATF, charged with regulating guns, lacks resources and leadership - Washington Post

    What is interesting is that this gun lobby wants to have a registry for mentally ill people... but, not for gun ownership. Something about infringing on someone's rights or other such poppy****.

    If this isn't the most transparent lobby of all time I don't know what is.
