I never knew that "sucks" and "hurts" were diametrically opposite verbs. I apologize for not quoting you exactly. I promise it won't happen again.

I encourage you to do a little research.
The reason the CDC can't do any research into gun violence is specifically because Congress prevents them from doing so. The reason Congress prevents the CDC from conducting any research into gun violence is because the NRA threatens any and all members with lowering their "score" if they even openly discuss removing the ban on the CDC's conducting any research into gun violence.

I think we all know that many, many members of the NRA have a mental illness--especially Wayne LaPierre and Jim Porter.

They have. The CDC and the NIH have begged to be able to conduct research into gun violence and what causes it. Your heroes in the Republican Party and the NRA have prevented them from being able to do so.
The NRA might say they want new research into what causes gun violence, but actions speak far louder than words and their actions prove they don't give a shit about figuring out what causes gun violence.

Someones panties are up in a bunch.
I am a hater of mass shootings and I'm a hater of people who think their 2nd Amendment right trumps my right to live without fear of going into a movie theater and getting slaughtered by an asshole who can purchase weapons of war at the corner gun shop.
If you want to go shoot a deer in the woods then have at it, but there is zero reason for you to be able to own a gun that can slaughter dozens of elementary school children in a classroom.
