In 1992, when I was a CNN Medical Correspondent, I reported this special on violence as a public health issue. It was produced by Susan Deutchman (Lilly). Of note is a section on gun violence (see 3:15, then end of Pt.1 & start of Pt. 2), which includes a discussion of opposition to researching the issue. By dramatically reducing funding, the opponents of scientific research into guns and violence hobbled researchers, so that decades later we have made little progress. Hence the public discussion is still dominated by ideology, rather than evidence.
