H.R. 321 would essentially create an exception to the 2012 Consolidated Appropriations Act (Public Law 112-74)’s ban on National Institutes of Health funds being used to advocate or promote gun control in order to allowing funding of “research on firearms safety or gun violence.”

We do not need to enable any government agency to fabricate studies supporting their gun-grabbing positions. Actual scientific studies of gun violence would defeat the current administration's efforts at gun control.

I support H.R. 321: Firearm Safety and Public Health Research Act of 2013 because it will document the addiction this country has with violence in our culture. Before I am an innocent victim or a loved one is a victim of this violence, we need to know the damage done living without such things as a background check or other preventive measures that make our society safer for our children and families.

I support H.R. 321: Firearm Safety and Public Health Research Act of 2013 because should the NRA and the Bush/Cheney regime not played their political and corrupt tricks to essentially end research that had begun, we may very well have not lost all the children and adults who have been mercilessly slaughtered in this country. As a tax payer and a grandmother, I am sick and tired of the influence of the NRA in MY government. I don't recall ever seeing those sociopaths on a voting ballot. I am not alone when I say I am sick and tired of corruption in OUR government. Why do politicians think OUR government is their game board and the citizens of this country are game pieces? Whichever politicians take money from and bow down to the NRA, let it be known, I will work relentlessly to have them voted out of a position which they take advantage of for their own personal gain. I hate politicians. You all make me want to vomit; disgusting waste of carbon on the earth.

I support H.R. 321: Firearm Safety and Public Health Research Act of 2013 because the vast majority of Americans value the lives and safety of our children and families more than the right to own (or shoot) guns. Too many people are killed and maimed every day in senseless acts of violence. Firearms are the number one killer of young adults in our country. It is long past time we took steps to reduce the bloodshed.

I support H.R. 321: Firearm Safety and Public Health Research Act of 2013 because we need research. How can ANYONE be against wanting to do research to help track gun violence. It makes no sense unless you are trying to hide something. Let's do the research and really see what the effects of gun violence is really about. Please pass this bill. Knowledge is power and without it, we are just going about this blindly.

I oppose The Firearm Safety and Public Health Research Act because I feel sure that if the government selected study groups were truly independent, not agenda driven, and schooled in the US Constitution, firearms ownership would benefit from such a study. But with the latest debacles with the BATF, the State Department, and IRS, I know any research will be highly politicized. Therefore I oppose.
