senate Bill S. 2671

Should the Feds Fund Evidence-Based Gun Violence Intervention and Prevention Programs?

Argument in favor

Everyday gun violence in the U.S., particularly urban communities, harms thousands of Americans — particularly minority and low-income individuals. While the gun violence debate has focused on mass shootings, this daily violence kills far more Americans each year. Evidence-based gun violence interventions and prevention programs designed to interrupt cycles of violence have been found effective in preventing this everyday violence, and should be supported by the federal government.

Scientific research is vitally necessary for a country with a mass shooting nearly every week. Stop letting gun manufacturers put profits ahead of lives!

I think it is a good plan to help identify causes and solutions to gun violence in communities effected by gun violence, especially violence by disenfranchised youth. Measuring the longer-term impact of counseling programs and community outreach efforts could layout a valuable template for other disenfranchised communities. I think it is a positive step forward in researching causes, effects and potential solutions to protect our citizens- and a reasonable investment for the future.

Apply science to the gun issue. I say this as an owner of more than one gun.

Gun violence is not an escalating epidemic. Democrat run cities with the most restrictive gun laws have the most gun violence. Don’t believe the gun grabber lies. Guns save lives.

There is no constitutional authority to spend money in this. This is a state and local issue. Read your constitution and understand the limited powers doctrine. Elected politicians in DC do not have any special knowledge on how to run our lives anymore than we do.

    The answer to “Should the Fed fund...?” Is always NO. That aside, this is just a thinly veiled attempt a gun confiscation without due process.

    Yes! Yes! Yes! We have a major problem with gun violence in this country. Those who claim that guns save lives ignore that over half of gun deaths in this country are suicides. Do the research, then there will be data on which to base rational, nonpartisan decisions.

    The issue isn’t about intervention to restrict gun ownership. The issue is that people are becoming deranged and decide to act out in anti social ways. We need non government led research to understand root cause. Government needs to stay out of it.

    Interesting how the radical alt-leftist word smith this topic. Why don't you mention the thousands of lives saved by law abiding gun owners who save lives using their guns? Hypocrites and liars.

    People from both sides should be supporting this. It will provide scientific evidence on the best way forward to prevent gun violence. After the evidence is in we will have a better idea of what works and what doesn’t work. Then we can act on the data in a way that respects our rights in the constitution and protects the lives of our fellow Americans.

    To put it into perspective, the Vietnam war over the period of 20 years killed 58,318 Americans. Every year now, ~40,000 people die from gun related injuries. We have a Vietnam body count every 1.5 years...

    Gun violence has focused most people’s view on mass shootings, and guns. I am one of those who feels the automatic type guns ban which Bush 2 Administration let lapse is DEFINITELY PART IF THD PROBLEM. BUT Evidence-Shows that interventions and prevention programs designed to interrupt cycles of violence are also quite effective in preventing this everyday violence, and should be supported by the federal government.

    Statistically shooting deaths are down in our country. Perhaps we should look at fear mongering and how to stop it.

    Why is “gun-violence” singled out? Most gun deaths are suicides and they include those to skew the stats. If someone is stabbed to death it’s fine? How about beaten to death with a blunt object or bare hands. Isn’t all violence bad? The truth is the people who push gun control legislation don’t think so (see antifa). If they spent half the time looking at the substance abuse, broken homes and mental health issues that lead to violence we may someday help some people. Make no mistake, gun control is only about control. They will not stop at guns. These folks won’t rest until they have decided every aspect of your life, cradle to grave...because they know how to run your life better than you do.

    It’s very tell that the CDC has been prevented from studying gun violence. Those that support loose gun control seem to know that data collected on gun violence would not paint a pretty picture.
