35. they can research all they want

NIJ still does. The studies were junk and seriously flawed. They were advocacy, not science. The Kellermann study it mentions was not peer reviewed and was debunked by criminologists.

The NRA has also acted to stifle the amount and quality of data available to the public regarding illegal firearms trafficking. The “Tiahrt Amendments” to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) appropriations bill prevent the media, researchers and the general public from accessing detailed trace data on guns recovered from crime scenes. This greatly hinders researchers’ attempts to “connect the dots” when it comes to deriving broader patterns of interstate (and international) gun trafficking.
but is available to law enforcement and the ATF themselves. I fail to see how the media or how some ER doctor pretending to me a criminologist like Wintemute.

I saw the show where Rachel said "everything you read is biased and believe only what I tell you"
Yes reporters should exercise due diligence to uncover facts and data. Problem is, they copy paste press releases most of the time.
