CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky has blown all of her credibility with her terrible messaging about the coronavirus. Now she’s showing she can concentrate on two things at once by adding gun violence to the CDC’s plate, calling it a public health threat. “Something has to be done about this,” she told CNN. “Now is the time — it’s pedal to the metal time.”
Gun violence in America is an epidemic that has been going on for decades.
The CDC decision to study gun violence is long overdue & in the past I have introduced legislation that provides funding for this research.
This issue needs come out of the dark.https://t.co/tSXVaRVf5D

For DECADES, the gun lobby has prevented the CDC from studying gun violence.

“Study” gun violence.
NEW – CDC implements study on "gun violence" after labeling it a "public health threat," aiming to "craft swift interventions, as they have done to contain the coronavirus pandemic and other national health emergencies." (NPR)

Maybe we’re wrong, but we thought CDC stood for Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, but as we’ve seen, the CDC has gotten into the property rental business as well, telling landlords what they can and can’t do with their own property. And now it’s setting its sights on guns.
Who the absolute fuck do you think you are @CDCgov? You have ZERO legality to even touch our constitutional rights. I wouldn't even attempt to think you have any kind of authority over what we own. Cause that is a massive mistake to push. https://t.co/EdtMTnRH5a

So the CDC apparently thinks they're going to be able to move on guns now? Lol, okay. Good luck with that.
>Give up your guns for 15 days to slow the spread of gun violence!
This agency has zero credibility forevermore at this point and should be defunded, if not disbanded.

Since when does the CDC get to weigh in on gun violence?? Maybe they’re worried about all of the suicides as a result of their unnecessary lockdowns?

What other political issues are they going to label a "public health threat" so they can provide an opinion?https://t.co/GH98Gpf61o

I was wondering which department of the government was going to confiscate the guns. Makes sense it would be the CDC. https://t.co/kfnybVUqth

Holy shit. I don't even like guns but this goes nowhere good. This should make everyone's hair stand on end

If the government tells you you don’t need a gun… you need a gun.

CDC needs to stay in their own lane, this has nothing to do with disease.

Now that it's been proven "public health threats" are just attempts to grab power, the regime is trying the same strategy with guns.#AbolishTheCDC

I don’t know what the CDC is planning but I already won’t comply 😂

The CDC is a public health threat.

Everything we don't like is a public health threat!

Two weeks to slow the spread of gun violence…🙄🙄 coming soon, if we let them.
— Kevin 🍀 (@kevinf456) September 29, 2021
Hahaha, you were warned! they will control everything you do now that they've seen your willingness to comply.

I’m sure their analysis will be as coherent and well thought out as their opinions on post infection immunity.
— Dave S. (@dps5400) September 29, 2021
So is the CDC going to start making gun regulations now to? Can't wait to not comply with that.
— MattWF (@MattFurrer) September 29, 2021
Not their job. Just like their other interventions, non-compliance is the answer.

And there it is. The endgame.

These people are TRYING to get a reaction at this point.

I thought the CDC was busy with eviction moratoriums?

“My job is to understand and evaluate the problem, to understand the scope of the problem, to understand why this happens and what are the things that can make it better — to research that, to scale that up, to evaluate it and to make sure that we can integrate it into communities,” Walensky told CNN, making it clear she has no idea what her job really is.
