How corrupt can The Biden Administration get?
In a shocking and blatant attempt to usher in mass gun control The CDC is attempting to reframe the issue of gun control as a public health issue.
I say let them try.
This is the most corrupt administration in American history, and their lawlessness knows no bounds, but they are also collapsing right now on multiple fronts.
The Biden regime is imploding….
Here’s more on The CDC’s blatant power grab:
The CDC is now involved in gun control. Welcome to Biden‘s America.

Business Insider writes:
Dr. Rochelle Walensky, the director of the Centers for Disease Control, wants her agency to establish gun violence as an urgent public health crisis. “Now is the time — it’s pedal to the metal time,” she told CNN in a new interview.
“The scope of the problem is just bigger than we’re even hearing about, and when your heart wrenches every day you turn on the news, you’re only hearing the tip of the iceberg,” Walensky said.
Congress stopped funding the CDC’s gun violence research in 1997 under pressure from the National Rifle Association, and the agency’s directors in the time since have largely stayed mum on the issue until now.
‘CDC Director Vows to Take on Gun Violence As Public Health Crisis’
Bullshit. 2/3 of gun deaths are suicide, about 99.9% of the rest are committed with illegal guns.
But these tyrants want to grab guns from law abiding Americans so they can control you. https://t.co/U5daz4JLTX

After selling the rights to write health guidance for school reopenings to Randi Weingarten and the teachers unions, and botching mask guidance for the Delta spike, the CDC now plans to take on gun control.
How does Rochelle Walensky still have a job?https://t.co/3kL0sJGBtd

Reason had this to say:
Walensky’s disavowal of restrictionist motives and her lip service to finding common ground with “the firearm-owning community” would be more reassuring if it weren’t for two facts. First, CDC-sponsored research in the past typically has served an anti-gun agenda that aims to reduce homicide and suicide by limiting access to firearms. Second, President Joe Biden has consistently used “public health” rhetoric to give his preexisting gun control ambitions a scientific patina.
Beginning in 1997, responding to complaints from the National Rifle Association (NRA), Congress prohibited the CDC from spending taxpayer money on gun violence research. That ban was lifted in 2018, and Walensky is taking advantage of the new leeway by funding studies aimed at “understanding the root causes of gun violence,” as CNN puts it.
CNN presents the NRA’s opposition to CDC research in this area as politically motivated interference with science. But as Don Kates and two other gun policy scholars noted in a 1997 Reason cover story, the studies funded by the CDC were controversial precisely because they seemed designed to promote a political cause.
