ABSTRACT
The article reports that in the wake of mass shootings in the U.S., President Barack Obama issued an executive order for the Department of Health and Human Services to conduct studies on causes and prevention of gun violence. A Center for Disease Control study showing the relationship between guns at home and increased risk for homicide and suicide was reportedly criticized by the National Riffle Associaiton. This allegedly led Congress to eliminate funding for gun control studies.
