Money for CDC to study gun injuries fires old debate

Posted: 06.07.19 06:26 AM

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is again a focus of the battle over firearms, as Georgia Rep. Lucy McBath and other Democrats are trying to restore funding for the agency to study gun violence.The Atlanta-based CDC stopped researching causes and results of such violence in 1993 when Republican lawmakers reacted to study saying homes with guns were five times more likely than homes without guns to be the scene of suicides and almost three times more likely to be the scene of homicides.
