Dr. Timothy Wheeler

quotes from P.W. O’Carroll, MD — he was the acting head of the Division of Injury Control at the CDC. He was quoted in JAMA [subscription required] on Feb. 3, 1989, as saying, “We are going to systematically build a case that owning firearms causes deaths. We are doing the most we can do given the political realities.” He later said he’d been misquoted.
