Skip to comments.Obama administration pushes new public health research agenda on gun control
Posted on 06/27/2013 12:50:06 AM PDT by Red Steel
In the near future, Americans who own or want guns likely will be subject to rafts of new questions from social scientists, medical researchers and law enforcement officials intent to discover just what guns they own, why they own them and what they intend to use them for not to mention where and how they keep them.
They will also likely have more researchers poring over such issues as whether childhood education programs against gun violence actually work; whether there actually is any relationship between violence in the media and in real life; and whether the safety plans that were drawn up by schools, colleges and communities in the wake of highly publicized mass shootings actually are effective.
Those and many other gun-related questions are the thrust of a new social science research agenda that the Obama administration hopes will keep the push for gun control alive for years to come.
The research agenda is intended to produce mammoth amounts of raw data on American gun owners, users and their circumstances, meaning that violence resulting from firearms use will be studied for its causes, approaches to interventions that could prevent it, and strategies to minimize its health burden.
This includes, for example, such things as the potential health risks and benefits (e.g., suicide rates, personal protection) of having a firearm in the home under a variety of circumstances (including storage practices) and settings.
The agenda, which aims to sidestep Second Amendment political and constitutional issues of gun ownership through its public health focus, was released earlier this month in a 124-page report titled, Priorities for Research to Reduce the Threat of Firearms Related Violence. It was sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) with financial support from private foundations.

Don’t worry, the ObamaCARE brain biopsy requirement
will waived for al Qaeda and upper level DNC members.
[How is America different from the USSR?
The slaves in America are sheep. ]
No, I don't think my doctor, asking if I have guns during a physical exam, will visit my house for a search.
Now, if it's some gov't jackboot...well, the end is nigh anyway.
They are taking baby steps. But make no mistake, the end is to confiscate every last gun.
However the good news is that lying is the new virtue in this country as we witness that on a daily basis from our very own government officials.
IRS and NSA data?
I will refuse to answer any questions about guns. Screw them. My doctor wouldnt ask anyway so not really an issue for me personally.
Yep. Which is possibly the real reason that they're mad at Snowden. He shed a little light on their scheme and they don't like that at all. Make no mistake about it - if he had talked to the media in the US, he'd be in solitary confinement or dead by now.
I intend to use them on a tyrannical government and to protect my family. Any more questions?
Doctors/Medical and Social Services...and maybe the IRS/NSA.
They are not going to study the good guys who lock up their guns, they will study the Obamaphone people as they apply for their benefits/food stamps/medical etc.
That is where the “stats” will come from and the new “rules” will be based on that info, not on the responsible gun owner.
But, I can see the IRS holding up your tax processing if you are a gun owner-unless you fill out the gun questionnaire.
This is the same methodology used by Hilter. We do not learn from history. It will be repeated. Hell, I’m watching it happen right now.
Obama arms narco-terrorists in Mexico and Islamonazis in Syria. He isn’t out to stop gun violence. His goal is to deny Americans their second amendment rights. Nothing else.
Reminds me of what Bill Cosby said about them:
“Now you got two people on the entire earth, Cain and Abel, and everything is mystical and beautiful. Now Cain could have gone to Hawaii, but no, he kills Abel.”
Liberals fight the “long war”.
This is how they started the destruction of our institutions back in the 60’s.
Now it will start by further brain washing youth and society in general to where it is unacceptable to own a gun and there is something wrong with you if you do.
Liberals are insidious.
And they will be met with a very firm: “None of your damned business!”
If it happens again, I will say no outright.
I think they believe there is a good chance they will lose the Senate, too, next November.
Try Gunbot. I've recently found some good, reasonably-priced ammo using that tool. Buy it cheap, stack it deep.
>>Ah use OBAMACARE to take away peoples guns.<<
Yep and get ready, they will attempt to use the EPA and the Insurance industry to regulate as well.
