ER doctors say it's time to study guns and gun violence
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have shied away from researching firearms and gun violence ever since 1996, when Congress passed an appropriations bill that forbade the CDC from using funds “to advocate or promote gun control.” Now a group of emergency room physicians is calling for an end to the CDC’s moratorium.
