Obama-commissioned study: Guns used for self-defense an ‘important crime deterrent’

[Ed. – Note: this study was by the CDC, which Democrats claim is not “allowed” by the Republican Congress to study guns as a public health issue.  Yet the CDC was able to perform a study ordered by Obama.]

“Self-defense can be an important crime deterrent,” concluded a study by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) mandated via executive order by President Barack Obama. The findings also question the effectiveness of gun-control measures.

The $10 million study was commissioned by President Barack Obama as part of 23 executive orders he signed in January of 2013.

The study’s findings include:

  • Gun-use is the safest of studied “self-protective strategies,”
  • Suicide accounts for most firearm deaths,
  • Felons who use guns very seldom obtain their guns by stealing them, and
  • There is no evidence that gun restrictions reduce gun violence.
