CDC has always been a political arm with an agenda.
I suspect any gun control research they attempt would be pretty biased...
Quite frankly, there is enough data available that anyone with even rudimentary statistical chops could whip up a study as to causes, impact, etc.
Anyone can pull FBI crime stats on perpetrators, type of weapons used, victims, etc.
Let me save the CDC time and resources;
1) Assault weapons are not the problem. First there is no such thing, but for sake of argument, let's call all rifles AR-15s. This category only
amounts for about 5% of the weapons used. Handguns are the issue.
2) 99.9% of the guns used in homicides and violent crime are already illegally owned. This alone points to the fact that more laws don't matter.
3) Vast majority of gun crime is concentrated in urban areas and in particularly within the black community. It isn't so much a gun problem as it is
a young black male problem. Unless we can address the cultural issue driving the gun violence within this demographic, it will never be resolved.
