Institute for Southern Studies Dishes the Dirt on What's Happening Around Here

The GOP has blocked funding for a CDC study into gun violence. No study..No violence, right? There's a ton of other stuff in this newsletter. Here's the full newsletter. Think about joining their email list and maybe tossing them a nickel or two.
