OOPS! CDC study on gun violence not what Obama wanted
Second Amendment: The White House asked the Centers for Disease Control "to research the causes and prevention of gun violence." We're pretty sure that what the CDC found wasn't what the White House was looking for.
The Democrats, and their media allies, obsess over some shootings while ignoring many others.
Kill innocents in a school or theater in large numbers, and the media will fixate on the tragedy while Democrats wail about America's "gun culture."
Shoot a minority who's wearing a hoodie and the left twists the story into something it isn't while the media turn the shooter into a "white" man, though he, too, is a minority — and an Obama supporter with a mixed ethnic background.
It was under these raw and highly charged circumstances that President Obama asked the CDC in January to perform the study. He was surely looking to manufacture a crisis that he could take advantage of.
But basically what it showed was since 1983 there have been 560 people killed by Rifles. But between 2001 and 2010, 335,000 people have been killed by handguns.
