I've said it before, but the fact that Republicans won't let the CDC collect data on gun deaths and injuries suggests that they know the data will suggest policies they don't want. Or at least believe it will, which is as much of a tell.

Hmm, you're saying that experts think making research publicly available to all could help generate better policy and improved health outcomes? I wonder if there's a lesson there that could be applied to other topics in public health research by...*checks notecard*... the American Journal of Public Health.
