Re: “David Price, congressional Democrats to call for restoration of federally funded gun-violence research

So Mr. Billman first grossly mischaracterized a legislative enactment, stating, "Jay Dickey pushed through an amendment essentially forbidding any federal funds from going toward gun research." Then, just to be sure we understand, he repeated it, "Dickey introduced language that stripped the CDC’s funding on gun research."

Then in his next paragraph, Billman proves this deception was knowing and deliberate, by accurately stating what the legislation actually said, "President Obama instructed federal agencies to interpret the Dickey amendment literally—no money for the promotion of gun control, but research is OK."

"Research is OK" == "essentially forbidding . . . gun research" ?????

Gotta love such accurate and consistent journalism!
