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.

    Yes and the NRA and gun manufacturers should fund the 90 million. This administration will not participate in this simply because they have no concern for the well-being of the citizens of this country. Their only concern are those with the deepest pockets to make those campaign donations that they thrive for.

    They should have the CDC involved in the study, which the NRA has been against that and any study!

    I don’t trust Senator Brooker’s “evidence based” sources. He has know biases and demonstrated that is uneducated when it comes to firearms policies. No thanks.

    We must find a way to reduce gun crimes in our country. Law abiding citizens must stop believing our government wants all our guns. Gun ownership is legal if you pass the background check. So stop the false propaganda of taking everybody’s guns. What we need is restrictions on military & law enforcement weapons - weapons that fire 30 or more bullets. No homeowner or hunter needs that many rounds. Even 20 is a high number. Politicians like to play the blame game but never do anything to help the situation. Let’s see bipartisanship to solve the country’s problems instead of party politics as usual. Do your jobs. End the party blockades.

    Any evidenced based investigations that can help curb violence and show the excesses of automatic and semi-automatic weapons would be welcomed.

    Gun violence is a huge problem in America and seems to be becoming more and more troubling every day. The government refusing to do anything about it is disappointing and shows people in low income families and areas that our leaders really are not looking out for them. It’s time to stop thinking about ourselves and think about the people who are truly affected by gun violence.

    What we have is a society without God. Combine that with lax prosecution of crimes and you can see the root of the problem. For those that do not understand this is not a gun problem, it is a people problem.
