NIH was disallowed to collect ANY data on gun deaths and to not do any stats on the problem. The NIH was relieved of that responsibility by Congressional action back about 2005? What reason? The article above states that the bills prime sponsor in the Senate regrets proposing and leading that legislation.
I think we are just aweee bit paranoid. The newspapers seem to get the stories of the mass shootings and the NIH would most likely be focuing on the much larger number where kids kill each other each weekend in revenge, little spats, drive-bys, and accidental shootings.
So you dont want to know? Is that your way of handling this issue, just make believe it doesnt happen?
I was over at the Hardware store earlier and theres a HUGE line of camo accoutered "patriots" were looking to buy Ar 15's and other semi autos .
