    Senate Judiciary Committee Meeting 30 JAN2013 - Gun Violence

    Here's may take from watching the hearing.

    We can keep our guns.
    There will be background checks for everything sold.
    Mental health records will be part of background checks.
    High capacity magazine no more - 10 or less rounds.
    More federal prosecution for violators.
    Feinsteins bill will pass but slight modification.

    Feinstein thinks Wayne is looking good.

    Felt sorrow for the girl scout group cut in half due to Newtown shooting.

    Hearing are still going on My take> NOTHING was learned

    The left ask their eyewitness (panel) questions that we knew the answer too already
    The Right did the same thing with their side of the Panel..

    There is no perfect solution but what we know is that Mental health needs to be revisited...
    everything else was smoke-screen feel good type of words... like trying to pass a new
    AWB that didnt work the first time around..

    why 10 rounds? Where is the research behind it? The reasoning behind it? why not 11 or 12 or 17? Oh thats right because 10 is closer to ZERO. These liberals come up with the biggest hock of crap to brainwash the people with

    "yeah we limited the good guys to 10 rounds, that will stop criminals from conducting mass shootings!" Are you kidding me?

    10 rounds was discussed to give victims a chance during mass shootings.

    Then there's that dirty little detail called HIPPA.

    HIPPA is not a constitutional right, it's a law that can be changed or readjusted. Also in the application you might have to wave your right of medical privacy in order to buy a gun.

    Where is the research, data, real reasoning behind it? A criminal will still be able to grab a p-mag or beta-c-mag, it gives the disadvantage to the law abiding citizen. Thats all this law does. There is no real reasoning behind it, it is not a solution to stop mass shootings. So instead of solving the problem you just want to attempt to slightly slow it down which isnt even a guarantee? No testing behind it, no facts, no nothing. Just guesses and anti-gun assumptions from people who have never even shot a gun. Thats the most asinine reasoning I have ever heard

    Pressure from the NRA put a halt to federal spending on gun violence research.

    A political fight over firearms research has waxed and waned for years. Public health researchers began digging into gun violence in the late 1980s as homicides surged. By 1996, the NRA and allies had concluded that the work was producing "anti-gun propaganda."

    Congress in 1996 nearly cut the CDC budget by $2.6 million, the amount the agency spent on firearms research at the time, researchers say. The funds were later restored, but a restriction was added to the budget and remains.

    "None of the funds made available for injury prevention and control at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention may be used to advocate or promote gun control," the budget read.


    I googled it and huffpost got the first hit. So because it's from a liberal news outlet, it just can't be true.

    No argument from me there. I always though HIPPA is more bureaucratic overkill to begin with, ranking just below ADA.

    What's wrong with that? The CDC should be political neutral.
