We need research into gun violence

gunviolenceresearch_590_394For all the rhetoric that has been flying back and forth in the last few days, we are mostly just guessing about what are the best solutions to gun violence, because research dried up for it (thanks, NRA!) 20 years ago.

  1. You know what they say. Shut up, science!

  2. Nice piece! It seems that the slightest bit of knowledge is viewed as an immediate threat to the second amendment instead of something that could point to actions that could make us all safer with guns. I can’t think of any other product out there that if it could be made safer for our use, we’d ignore the findings.
