Obama Study Concluded Firearms Used for Self-Defense ‘Important Crime Deterrent

“Self-defense can be an important crime deterrent,” concluded a study by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) mandated via executive order by President Barack Obama. The findings also question the effectiveness of gun-control measures.

The $10 million study was commissioned by President Barack Obama as part of 23 executive orders he signed in January of 2013.

The study’s findings include:

Gun-use is the safest of studied “self-protective strategies,”
Suicide accounts for most firearm deaths,
Felons who use guns very seldom obtain their guns by stealing them, and
There is no evidence that gun restrictions reduce gun violence.

“Studies that directly assessed the effect of actual defensive uses of guns (i.e., incidents in which a gun was ‘used’ by the crime victim in the sense of attacking or threatening an offender) have found consistently lower injury rates among gun-using crime victims compared with victims who used other self-protective strategies,” the CDC study, entitled “Priorities For Research to Reduce the Threat of Firearm-Related Violence,” states.

10 millions of Taxpayers Dollars spent on this "Study"? One of many Barrack's Executive Orders. Another BS study on something which could of been done for less than $10,000 by anybody with common sense and logic. But why not spend millions on Taxpayers dime? Because, Yes, We Can, Bankrupt the America. And Sheeple keep cheering.

The 2nd amendment was crafted for Americans to protect themselves from a tyrannical government.

Look, 12:59 there are reports that you need to have access to. You go ahead and file Freedom of Information acts with thousands of police agencies for all their records on these cases and let me know how long it takes. RE the money. I hate to say it but our guy has spent more than that on trips alone! Seems like no matter what we do the politicians, red or blue, really love to spend our money.

The answer to your question 2:19. Start now, if you don't have a piece, purchase and learn to use it before carrying.

Good point there. Who knows what they spent the money on, maybe their own pet projects? Bottom line - Money is gone and nothing to show for it.

I'm a little leery of the felons not using stolen guns stats.

626 This is obama's own people's stats. If they could have shown that these guns were stolen from legal owners, they would have quickly shown to say and have another reason not to possess guns because criminals will steal them.

This does not help their gun confiscation case.
