“Do you know that Congress will not allow the CDC to study gun violence? They’re not allowed to study it.” – Source (skip ahead to 3:10 for quote)
Well, it’s quite a peculiar claim since the ban on the CDC studying gun violence was lifted in 2013, and the CDC produced a major report on gun violence & gun control. Certainly the findings were shouted from the rooftops, right? Guns and Ammo has the full scoop on the CDC study Obama neglected to mention.
