Congress Refuses, So California Funds Its Own Gun Violence Research Center
"The California Firearm Violence Research Center will have funding, train a new crop of researchers, and get one of the best gun violence data sets out there. “Over the last fifteen years, national rates of firearm violence have remained unchanged.” says Garen Wintemute, a physician and the director of the Violence Prevention Research Unit at UC Davis. “But in that time period, firearm violence in California has decreased by about 20 percent.” Wintemute, who spearheaded the proposal to create the center with Senator Lois Wolk, a Democrat who represents Davis, hopes that’ll be one of the things the new team can figure out." ‎- JustDuckie
