Most people with scientific training don't know this, but the National Rifle Association's political arm (i.e. the Republican Party) stopped the CDC and any other government agency from either studying the effects of gun use in America but also banned the BATF from releasing the statistics it has compiled on gun crime, so no researchers at private universities and think tanks can use the data either.
It's astonishing that they can ban science when it comes to guns, but they have.
