JimDandy, my problem with the CDC's involvement is that they are defining gun ownership as equivalent to carrying disease, they are intentional framing it in a light that says 'ooo, icky, guns are like germs, they kill people, ewwww'.
I have no problem if the CDC was only studying violence in general as that is a manifestation of sickness and mental instability, but they don't focus on an 'epidemic of rape' or 'an epidemic of domestic assault' but they do focus on an 'epidemic of gun violence'. It's a tainted stance.
