Fake science: CDC publishes totally false data on gun injuries, but the left-wing media eats it up without any supporting evidence

Though they’ve slightly faded from the spotlight ever since the Judge Brett Kavanaugh confirmation circus, the “March For Our Lives” gun-grabbers are still busy behind the scenes trying to eliminate your Second Amendment rights – and they’re doing it using fake gun injury data being published by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

A recent investigation by FiveThirtyEight and The Trace found that the CDC is publishing gun injury data that the agency itself admits is “unstable and potentially unreliable,” though the mainstream media seems to have no problem with citing it is “factual.”

While various other agencies, organizations, and entities that track such data have procured data showing that gun violence is down in recent years, only the CDC is reporting that it’s somehow increasing. This is what’s known as an outlier, and for scientific purposes it’s typically thrown out as erroneous. But since it matches the leftists’ anti-gun narrative, it’s often peddled in the fake news as “science.”

“… the CDC’s report of a steady increase in nonfatal gun injuries is out of step with a downward trend we found using data from multiple independent public health and criminal justice databases,” reports FiveThirtyEight. “That casts doubt on the CDC’s figures and the narrative suggested by the way those numbers have changed over time.”

More than a dozen public health researchers agree: CDC gun injury statistics are fake news

Responding to an analysis memo indicating major problems with the CDC’s gun injury data, an agency spokesperson reportedly responded to FiveThirtyEight and The Trace with claims that the CDC is “confident that the sampling and estimation methods are appropriate,” even though they’re antithetical to every other gun injury dataset out there.
