Gun rights advocate Dana Loesch demolished GOP Senate Candidate Mehmet Oz over his former claims about ‘gun violence.’

As The Daily Wire reports:

Popular radio host Dana Loesch accused Pennsylvania Republican Senate candidate Dr. Mehmet Oz of pushing “disinformation” about gun control and gun violence statistics.

Loesch laid out her argument in a lengthy Twitter thread responding to a 2018 claim from the Trump-backed candidate stating that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) had been barred from “comprehensively” studying gun violence.

Right now, the @CDCgov is NOT funded to study gun violence in this country. It’s time we treat shootings as a public health problem. Contact your congressperson today to demand they fund the #CDC to comprehensively study gun violence. #EndTheBan congress.gov,” Oz tweeted.

Oz is currently leading the field in a tight Republican primary, as The Daily Wire previously reported. “According to a poll of more than 1,000 likely Republican primary voters by the Trafalgar Group, television host Dr. Mehmet Oz currently leads the race with a 24.5% margin. Barnette follows closely behind at 23.2%, while former hedge fund CEO and Treasury Department official David McCormick comes in third at 21.6%. As the margin of error is 3%, the three candidates are virtually tied.”

Are Oz’s former statements about gun violence beyond the pale? Let us know what you think in the comments below.

I have never been a fan of Oz and hope he gets his business kicked in November

We had to put up with this type of BS from Pat Toomey chumming up with Joe Manchin years back on gun legislation.
