D'OH! Study Ordered by Obama Contradicts White House Anti-gun Narrative

Don't expect this to deter the usual suspects, however:

Obama had announced at the beginning of the year his push for three major gun control initiatives — universal background checks, a ban on “assault weapons,” and a ban on “high-capacity” magazines — to prevent future mass shootings, no doubt hoping that the CDC study would oblige him by providing evidence that additional gun control measures were justified to reduce gun violence. On the contrary, that study refuted nearly all the standard anti-gun narrative and instead supported many of the positions taken by gun ownership supporters.

For example, the majority of gun-related deaths between 2000 and 2010 were due to suicide and not criminal violence.

In addition, defensive use of guns “is a common occurrence,” according to the study.

The current report from the CDC echoed findings the CDC published back in 2003 that showed that suicides were responsible for 58 percent of all firearms-related deaths in 2000. Also noted is that back in 2003 Americans owned an estimated 192 million firearms, while today that number is estimated to be closer to 300 million, an increase of more than 55 percent.

Said the CDC back in 2003, “Evidence was insufficient to determine the effectiveness of any of these laws" (Emphasis added.):

Bans on specified firearms or ammunition,
Restrictions on firearm acquisition,
Waiting periods for firearm acquisition,
Firearm registration and licensing of owners, and
Zero tolerance for firearms in schools.

As noted above, this won't change one iota the dogma of those supposedly interested in "science" and "facts." Just recall the condescending "brain child" comics creator Ron Marz shortly after Newtown:

Yep. "STFU" about facts and let me spout off like an overly emotional five year-old, dammit!!

That's about the size of it.

Marz has the maturity of a kindergartener. He's another anti-gunner who doesn't understand that gun control doesn't work and criminals will still find ways to get guns even if they're banned.

My mom is also anti-gun, but not to the extent that Marz is. She isn't a liberal, thinks there should be "reasonable measures," but doesn't understand that usually means disarming law-abiding citizens.

??Laungnya sambil menuruni anak tangga. Tolong bawakan ubi rebus ni untuk adik-adik, Entah kenapa aku merindui sahabatku yang sudah terlalu jauh daripadaku. bentakku menidakkan andaian Haziqah sambil membaling sepemeluk bantal ke arahnya tanda menghalaunya dari kamarku.
