|NRA head, Wayne LaPierre|
Only a lame-witted Republican Congress, commandeered, of course by the National rifle Assn., would ban research that reveals the statistics on gun violence. Even the former congressman who introduced the bill, Jay Dickey, says it’s wrong. But the minute the NRA jumped on the band wagon, all of the GOP Congress, and some Democrats, cringed and simply accepted more money from these thugs and kept their mouths shut.
Reinstating the research is up for grabs again as Congress is currently debating the budget. Tell your representatives you want to see funds appropriated for the CDC to add gun violence to their research again so those out there who favor such an open market for these weapons will see just what they are supporting. Find your Senator and Representative now. You can also tell the White House to support this action.
