    Thumbs up a study ordered by Obama says guns save lives. ignored by the administration.

    i know i`m preaching to the choir here as i`m sure that all the members of this forum are more or less pro gun.

    some interesting findings for a study done by the Institute of Medicine and National Research Council, under the directive of the Centers for Disease Control done as part of the Executive Orders signed by President Obama earlier this year in the wake of the Sandy Hook shootings.

    Interesting stuff. They sure avoid coming to any conclusions, as expected.
    "Yet this government never of itself furthered any enterprise, but by the alacrity with which it got out of the way... The character inherent in the American people has done all that has been accomplished; and it would have done somewhat more, if the government had not sometimes got in its way."

    pretty good considering that Obama has always been anti gun.

    Obviously he was expecting different results.

    I wonder why the media hasn't jumped on this report?

    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    Keep it on Obama/The Report/Firearms/Self-Defense. Please do not drift into General Democrat Liberal General Politics. So far so good.

    Maybe O's speech writers can rewrite the study into something he finds more palatable.

    well it would appear that your quiche was left in the oven too long and has shriveled into a piece of charcoal that strangely resembles a Smith & Wesson M&P

    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    This administration will not let facts get in the way of their agenda and that has been demonstrated over and over again. Denial, diversion and discrediting are the tools of the trade here.

    One thing to remember, before you go spouting numbers and statistics based on this report you need to make sure you READ the ENTIRE report. There are also many points made in the anti gun position and you need to be able to respond to those points in the report if you use the pro gun points. At least you won't be blindsided when asked about those points.


    No better way to look the fool than to not know the other side of the coin you flip.
