IBD Gets Panties in a Bunch Over Gun Research.

Cause, you know, studying something or asking questions is a bad thing cause the results may disprove your position. Quoting Joe Barton, the conservative paper notes:

More than a decade ago Congress, seeing it as a backdoor assault on the 2nd Amendment and the right to keep and bear arms, voted to cut funding for firearms research by the Centers for Disease Control. Such research was viewed as one-sided and based on flawed assumptions that all gun use was bad, even that which saved lives and deterred crime.

The National Institutes of Health seemed to have picked up the baton by funding similar studies of gun violence as a public health issue.

"It's almost as if someone's been looking for a way to get this study done ever since the Centers for Disease Control was banned from doing it 10 years ago," said Rep. Joe Barton, R-Texas, of one of the NIH studies. "But it doesn't make any more sense now than it did then."

Note the commenter who finds inconsistency in the "culture of death" dems pushing abortion and euthanasia but not wanting citizens to wave guns around....
