Dems pushing CDC to fake “gun violence” science research just like the EPA fakes climate change research

One of the reasons why Leftist Democrats love big government is because they can use it to give themselves, their party, and — importantly — their agenda an air of legitimacy.

That’s why majority House Democrats are pushing for more funding for “gun violence research” and they’re looking to a familiar ally to provide it: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which has a history of producing ‘politically correct science’ on the subject of guns, especially.

As The Hill reported last week, Democrats are attempting to claim that gun violence has become a “public health emergency,” despite FBI and government statistics to the contrary and all while they work to thwart POTUS Donald Trump’s declaration of a real national emergency along the U.S.-Mexico border — just like Barack Obama said it was in 2014.

If they manage to push additional funding through the GOP-controlled Senate to a presidential signature, it would mark the first time in two decades that Congress ponied up tax money for gun violence research. Funding fell off after lawmakers passed an amendment in the 1990s discouraging federal agencies from conducting gun-related research.

“We should not be afraid of research, said Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn.), chair of the House Appropriations Committee’s subcommittee on health. “Gun violence is a public health emergency.”

She added: “The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is the nation’s foremost public health agency. And yet, it has been absent from this research agenda for more than 20 years.”

The GOP is arguing that funding gun violence research is a Democrat political stunt aimed at producing ‘evidence’ that it’s an ‘emergency.’

“The money we spend needs to make a difference as opposed to making a political point,” countered Rep. Tom Cole (R-Okla.), the subcommittee’s ranking member.

The Hill noted further:

An amendment passed in 1996 — named for former Rep. Jay Dickey (R-Ark.) — prevented the use of federal funds to advocate for gun control. But Democrats and public health experts argue it also created a chilling effect at agencies studying the causes of gun violence and how to prevent it.

Politically correct research isn’t scientifically sound research
