This is day fourteen of my look at the twenty three executive orders on gun control enacted by the President.
14. Issue a Presidential Memorandum directing the Centers for Disease Control to research the causes and prevention of gun violence.
This one is a bit scary. The CDC has difficulty in tracking and explaining common issues such as the influenza virus, so how effective are they going to be at mental and social issues? The leadership of the CDC is vehemently anti-gun, so how will they provide unbiased research? How much more funding does this give this agency and how will it be used? Transparency? Probably not. Is this research going to label our vets as terrorist threats due to their immersion in violence? Are they seriously going to address the movie and video game industry that provides alternate realities and emotional displacement in regards to violence?
This one seems a bit like a script from a Stephen King book. Twisted and scary.
