They said that more money is needed to research policy that could reduce gun violence.

“Good policies are based on good data and we need good data for prevention,” Maloney said.

Maloney urged President Obama to include $10-million in the upcoming budget to research gun violence and how to stop it. She called gun violence an epidemic.

“It kills on average 31,000 Americans a year, wounding over 80,000 every year,” she said.

Maloney said that it is up to congress to get past the NRA’s lobbying efforts which she said has prevented research for 17 years.

The study would be spearheaded by the Centers for Disease Control.

    Of course she’s a lying piece of Democrat/socialist canine excrement. Most ‘gun violence’ is trash killing other trash … so who cares? Why would anyone care? I don’t.
    … and numbers are pure bovine excrement …31,000 was total deaths from all forms of violence three years ago.

    The number of guns in private citizen hands goes up the number of crimes involving firearms goes down. Even HIs, which you cover, are less than O.01 percent of all violent crimes. Murder, all classes of it, comprise only 1% of violent crimes & about 0.03% of total crimes when crimes against property a considered.
    The US is not even in the top-10 nations in terms of violent crimes & we’re about no. 40 for murders. If one were to subtract Afro-trash crimes from the equation we’re dead last in the world for violence.

    The only possible way for liberals to get gun control is to pad the actual numbers making things seem worse than they are.
