What injuries, deaths do guns cause?

-A A +A

It would be useful to know what the effect of gun ownership has on injury and death rates. Unfortunately Congress limits the ability of researchers to study this issue.
The New York Times, Jan. 5, 2011, said that appropriations for the CDC state that, “None of the funds made available for injury prevention and control at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention may be used to advocate or promote gun control.”
Question is the NRA and other gun advocates afraid of the answers?
