Ray, turn off the damned TV. There have been no results from the CDC. I think you're writing about the Priorities for Research to Reduce the Threat of Firearm-Related Violence. In other words it was pre-study outlining the necessity to conduct an exhaustive study.

So this is the results of the strictest gun control laws in the USA. Could it be that we are barking up the wrong tree? Could drugs be the problem - thats a good bet. Could juvenile delinquents be the problem - another sound idea. Could gangs be a part of the problem - you bet! Executive order number 14 of President Obama's 27 gun initiative orders, from January of this year, came out a couple of weeks ago. That's the one about the CDC gathering gun violence data to prove that reducing guns will prevent crime. You missed it? No wonder - the White House isn't pleased with the outcome since it verified John Lotts conclusions ( More guns less crime) with the most up to date studies and information. That is one more ignored study that I am pleased to pay for with tax monies we will borrow from China..
