First of all, word on social media is that you should avoid romaine lettuce, as it might be tainted with a strain of E. coli.
Outbreak Alert: Do not eat any romaine lettuce, including whole heads and hearts, chopped, organic and salad mixes with romaine until we learn more. If you don’t know if it’s romaine or can’t confirm the source, don’t eat it. https://t.co/NrFOIxG8hx pic.twitter.com/FuzkHv4bd3

I already knew salad was poisonous because it tastes like salad.

In case you hadn’t heard already, gun control groups have been lobbying hard for the Centers for Disease Control to once again study the effects of gun violence, a point brought up, emoji-style, by Politico’s Dan Diamond:

Are guns a contagious disease?

Because CDC has what to do with guns? I wish the left would stop being this stupid.

Can you tell us what the thoughts of the CDC are on infrastructure? How about defense spending? Tax rates?

CDC did do a study on guns once, the facts didn’t fit the narrative so they buried it. Good try though.

It’s true: President Barack Obama had the CDC study gun violence, and in its 2013 report, the CDC found that “almost all national survey estimates indicate that defensive gun uses by victims are at least as common as offensive uses by criminals,” and that “there is empirical evidence that gun turn-in programs are ineffective.”
In other words, it backfired.
CDC on guns : “They save WAY more lives than they take.”

Since you’re talking CDC.. heres some of their stats.. Deaths by guns per year (including suicides) is around 30k. Deaths prevented by self defense with guns.. low end 500k up to 3 million.. Guns save lives. #FACTS
