Exposing CDC Censorship of Defensive Gun Data

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) has removed its study regarding defensive gun use (DGU) information from its website. This study showed that Americans have relied on guns for self-defense upwards of 2.5 million times a year. 

This censorship follows a private meeting held between the CDC and gun control advocates. This is clear pandering to liberal activist groups aiming to cover up the fact gun owners use their 2nd amendment rights to protect their life, liberty, and property.

Public trust in the CDC is already at an all-time low. If agencies commissioned with informing the American public are so easily swayed by political-interest groups, they will lose all credibility with the American people. The politicization of our institutions must end.

I sent a letter with Rep. Elise Stefanik to the CDC demanding answers for this censorship. Come January, the Republican-controlled House of Representatives will advocate for law-abiding gun owners and ensure the CDC is held accountable. Read our letter here
