• The Keller ISD School Board met Monday night to discuss the state’s “Guardian Program,” an effort for schools to have an armed defensive approach to an active shooter on campus while waiting for law enforcement to arrive.


The CDC Removed ‘Defensive Gun Use’ Data at the Request of Gun Control Advocates
  • .
  • The CDC has a dedicated webpage that discusses gun violence. About midpage it reads:

Although definitions of defensive gun use vary, it is generally defined as the use of a firearm to protect and defend oneself, family, other people, and/or property against crime or victimization.

Estimates of defensive gun use vary depending on the questions asked, populations studied, timeframe, and other factors related to study design. Given the wide variability in estimates, additional research is necessary to understand defensive gun use prevalence, frequency, circumstances, and outcomes.

  • A  study that indicated as many as 2.5 million defensive gun use (DGU) happen each year was removed.
  • According to an article in “The Reload,” published on Thursday, the CDC allowed gun control advocates to dictate policy, with the CDC removing the study from its website. The advocates had difficulty getting the CDC to meet with them until Dick Durbin’s office pressured the CDC to schedule a virtual meeting. During the meeting and later in emails to officials at the CDC, Mark Bryant of Gun Violence Archive (GVA), asserted that the study was “damaging to the political prospects of passing new gun restrictions and should be eliminated from the CDC’s website.”
  • Bryant emailed CDC officials later saying:
  • “[T]hat 2.5 Million number needs to be killed, buried, dug up, killed again and buried again,” “It is highly misleading, is used out of context and I honestly believe it has zero value – even as an outlier point in honest DGU discussions.”
  • According to The Reload, the FOIA production included a fair share of fully redacted pages but also contained some illuminating emails including a reference to  “plans to talk about potential changes “off-line.”  Was that to avoid a paper trail and create plausible deniability for both the gun control advocates and officials at the CDC?
