Anti-gun Bureaucrats love to weaponize government in favor of their political agendas. We’ve seen how they use the ATF to change rules that affect the rights of gun owners without even giving anyone a chance to vote on specific policies.

Congress has been taking millions of dollars from you, the taxpayer, and giving it to the Centers for Disease Control and the National Institutes of Health. They’ve taken this money from you to produce anti-gun propaganda and studies that will support gun control legislation, including the following:

  • $1,100,000 to study the “relationship between lawful gun ownership and risk”
  • $490,000 to study “a state with Constitutional Carry versus a stater with strict gun control”
  • $333,000 to “evaluate” gun confiscation laws and gun purchase wait periods in California
  • $518,000 “to enhance policy implementation” of “expanded background checks [and] firearm storage requirements” and gun confiscation laws in Michigan
  • $3,600,000 to study “firearm retirement” for senior citizens which “will strongly parallel (key but not all) aspects of driving retirement”
  • $650,000 to study “firearm prohibitions and relinquishment”
  • $1,200,000 to run a study including “in person and telehealth wellness check-ins” which explicitly include “safety (e.g., guns at home…)”
  • $428,000 to study how “episodic crime reports… that depict violence as a ‘crime’ issue… can lead audiences to blame victims [and] reinforce racist stereotypes”
  • $349,000 to find out if state gun control “firearm laws reduce mortality”
  • $126,000 to find out why Black Americans are six times more likely “to experience an assault-related firearm injury” as White Americans
  • $2,100,000 “to inform evidence-based interventions that prevent firearm injury risks involving Asian Americans” caused by their mere “firearm possession” and more.

Did you know your hard-earned tax money is being used to undermine your rights? This is nothing more than an anti-gun fear campaign to produce as much support as possible for their gun grabs, and you are paying for it.

These CDC and NIH studies are fabricated to justify such gun control restrictions as gun confiscation laws, mandatory waiting periods, and even a firearm retirement age. Yes, you read that right; they want to create an age at which you are deemed too old to own guns. As unconstitutional and ridiculous as these proposed policies are, there are people who have been conditioned to fear guns and despise those who own them, who would actually support these measures. The type of propaganda in these biased studies are produced specifically to appeal to people who don’t know any better or those who have been indoctrinated with irrational gun fear.

The Dickey Amendment is included in every government funding bill and was created to prevent groups like the CDC and NIH from weaponizing research for the purpose of creating biased, politically motivated data that could be used by politicians and bureaucrats to promote and advocate for gun control. Its basic intention was to declare that “none of the funds made available in this title may be used in whole or in part, to advocate or promote gun control.”

It has become perfectly clear that the CDC and NIH are being used by anti-gunners for the purpose of perpetuating a false, so-called “gun violence” narrative in the pursuit of unconstitutional gun laws that would make it nearly impossible for lawful American Citizens, to keep and bear arms.

Several major studies have determined that there are between 500,000 and 3 million defensive gun uses per year in America. Even the CDC was forced to admit in 2021 that there were approximately 1.6 million defensive gun uses every year in America. In other words, good people using their personal firearms to stop violent crime. 95% of the time the trigger was never even pulled. Just the mere presence of that gun stopped the crime. Since those defensive gun studies didn’t support the anti-gun agenda, the CDC was later encouraged by the anti-gun lobby to remove those reports from public view.

Now, it would appear the CDC is being encouraged by congressional Democrats to ignore their own study and create new propaganda that supports the gun-grab agenda.

Isn’t it ironic how groups like the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the National Institutes of Health are not focusing on the mental health issues that cause human violence? Isn’t it interesting how they abandon their very own areas of expertise to focus on firearms?

Republican representative from Iowa Mary Miller Meeks has introduced an amendment specifying that the CDC and NIH are not to be leveraged in the promotion or advocation for gun control. Help support this amendment by going to gunowners.org and use the simple form to tell your Congressman and Senators to refuse this illegal funding of the CDC and NIH.
