A year has passed since Congress clarified that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention was allowed to conduct gun violence research, but the agency has yet to receive a significant increase in funding to support that effort.
The past 12 months simply reflect a dearth of funding over two decades that experts feel has left the country no closer to answering some of the most important questions about the nature of gun violence, limiting progress in reducing the number of deaths and injuries that occur each year due to firearms.
That puts hospitals, a major stakeholder in the epidemic of gun violence, in an even greater bind as they try to tackle the social determinants of health with little guidance in that area.
I cannot overstate the impact of lack of funding from Congress, said Dr. Megan Ranney, director of the Emergency Digital Health Innovation program at Brown University and chief research officer at the American Foundation for Firearm Injury Reduction in Medicine, or AFFIRM. The nonpartisan, not-for-profit organization provides funding for firearm injury research that will focus on creating best practices on firearm injury for healthcare providers.

Gun violence research at standstill due to lack of federal funding...
Answer: There is.
There, I saved them a lot of money.
I can save them a lot with car accidents too.
The ONLY reason the ‘rats want gun ‘violence’ researched is to find therein a loophole to declare ‘gun violence’ a public health hazard so to regulate them in the interest of public health.
Any time you see "research" it means tax money to fund some pointy heads to confirm "conclusions" which were already predetermined.
Today no one does research without deciding on the outcome before even starting. It goes without saying that ALL the money is allocated to leftist organizations and professors with an agenda and an ax to grind.
Great news! Thanks for posting.
-it shows that "gun violence" is overwhelmingly concentrated in a certain "minority" and is mostly directed at this group by its own members---
That puts hospitals, a major stakeholder in the epidemic of gun violence,
A standstill, huh?
That’s shame. /s
Boo Hoo Gurl! Me love you long time!
I dunno. I know there is criminal and thug violence, and some of the use guns. Not sure guns commit violence on their own very often.
Good guys attempt to stop violence.
Who should I send my bill to? I charge only $250,000 for this.
There’s no CAR violence, except for Google’s driverless ones :)
Wonderful! Don’t need it!
Nah. I think I'll pass.

For most academic researchers they are paid a salary that allows them to devote their time to whatever research project they want to work on. What's stopping the complaining researchers from using their own time to do the research?
The answer is simple - you don't do fake science unless you are getting paid for your results.
