Researchers in UC Daviss Violence Prevention Research Program are worried President Trump will simply erase their data the way his administration erased climate change data from the White House web site.
The fear took hold on inauguration day, when members of the Violence Prevention Research Program watched the Climate Change information disappear.
Wired reports that Magdalena Cerdá saw the Climate Change information vanish and viewed is as a call to action. She said she worried the same thing could happen to gun violence data on websites belonging to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Bureau of Justice Statistics, or the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
Cerdá was on an Amtrak train when she noticed the Climate Change material disappearing and she sent an email to Garen Wintemute saying [they] needed to start downloading
data immediately. The goal was to get all the online resource material saved to a back-up drive so they would have it, even if an outside party ordered it removed or inaccessible on the internet.

this doesn’t make sense.
They claim it’s their data and they don’t have a backup ?
Well now that you mention it; that’s a great idea. Kellyanne; see if you make that happen please.
According to “so-called” researchers, oh yeah, why even bother to post here, unless you’re anti-gun activist!
Let me get this straight - they are afraid Trump will take the gun violence info off the WH website?? But it won’t just GO AWAY, will it?? Is every leftie afraid about everything then??
I would rather see Trump erase the “gun violence” researchers.

More winning! The Libtards are in full meltdown mode!
When they run out of things to whine about, they whine about made up things.
If its federally funded, they don’t own the data.
Trump needs to require BATF destroys all their gun registration records.
