Response to safeinOhio (Reply #5)

8. I don't know, but that seems like the wrong question to me.

 

A better question would be

Does the NRA oppose funds for unbiased research?


Any research the NRA actively supported would be tainted, just as the research supported by the Joyce Foundation, MAIG and other groups with agendas is tainted. The NRA would taint legitimate science by supporting it.

A more pressing issue is that by politicizing this issue, Rosenberg has poisoned the well. The NRA will tend to distrust the motives of government health organizations investigating guns—and who can blame them? The NRA would only trust them if the President and the organization had a pro-gun stance. Obviously the Joyce Foundation, the MAIG, Brady and MMM would distrust that government agency and administration.

I don't see a solution. But the "blame the NRA" meme is based on false history.
