On statistics. (And gun violence)

Here is something I want you to do.

1.- Epidemiology matters, but the NRA, through a member of Congress, got the CDC research defunded in 1997. I gotta give it to the NRA, they learned from the Tobacco industry. (These tobacco hearings were in 1997)

2.- all the data you have been able to see is raw FBI data, which has not gone through the epidemiology filter.

3.- Call, email, whatever, and demand Congress restores this funding. The reason it was defunded in the first place was that it was showing the actual problems and developing epidemic.

That is all.

5. You need to ask?

It helps in creating and funding programs for suicide prevention. The information is thin any longer, so it's a hit and a miss based on really old data. That is but one obvious example.

9. I wrote an article on suicide in sd county last July I think

So I still got most of them links. That was one of the things that jumped at me. CDC has suicide data, but beyond .... Some really basic stuff, from FBI figures, not much.
