Dem Senator Wants CDC To Research Guns Like Diseases

This certainly sounds like a royal waste of money.
Check it out:

On May 21 Senator Ed Markey (D-MA) and Representative Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) introduced legislation designating $10 million a year to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) “to fund research on gun violence prevention and firearms safety.”

The funding would take place for six years starting in 2015.

According to, Markey released a statement with the bill in which he said:

It is time we study the issue of gun violence like the public health crisis that it is. If we want to prevent injury and deaths from guns, we need to know what can be done to prevent it. No one should be afraid of more non-partisan, scientific research of this issue—not Democrats, not Republicans, and not the NRA.
