#15 is a completely asinine talking point.

google: cdc gun research ban = About 1,130,000 results

The obtuse troll ignores the search results that link to actual research that is erroneously claimed to be banned. It also forgets the many previous discussions on this topic. It also injects its invented talking point, "a restriction from reaching certain conclusions, even when the research supports those conclusions," when the CDC says and does otherwise,

Anti-Lobbying Act requirements prohibit lobbying Congress with appropriated Federal monies. Specifically, this Act prohibits the use of Federal funds for direct or indirect communications intended or designed to influence a member of Congress with regard to specific Federal legislation. This prohibition includes the funding and assistance of public grassroots campaigns intended or designed to influence members of Congress with regard to specific legislation or appropriation by Congress.

In addition to the restrictions in the Anti-Lobbying Act, CDC interprets the language in the CDC's Appropriations Act [the topic of the thread] to mean that CDC's funds may not be spent on political action or other activities designed to affect the passage of specific Federal, State, or local legislation intended to restrict or control the purchase or use of firearms.

Before anyone gets their freak on about how these bills will stop this craziness, consider, all three bill provide:

SEC. 3. Restrictions on assault weapons and large capacity ammunition feeding devices. (emphasis original)

(a) In general. -- Section 922 of title 18, United States Code, is amended --

(1) by inserting after subsection (u) the following:

"(v) (1) It shall be unlawful for a person to import, sell, manufacture, transfer, or possess, in or affecting interstate or foreign commerce, a semiautomatic assault weapon.

"(2) Paragraph (1) shall not apply to the possession, sale, or transfer of any semiautomatic assault weapon otherwise lawfully possessed under Federal law on the date of enactment of the Assault Weapons Ban of 2019.
...
"(w) (1) It shall be unlawful for a person to import, sell, manufacture, transfer, or possess, in or affecting interstate or foreign commerce, a large capacity ammunition feeding device.

"(2) Paragraph (1) shall not apply to the possession of any large capacity ammunition feeding device otherwise lawfully possessed on or before the date of enactment of the Assault Weapons Ban of 2019.

There are millions if not ten of millions of these rifles possessed by the public and an untold millions of magazines, the numbers are sketchy, basically wags, so I'm not giving a cite. The legislation does virtually nothing toward prevention. But it addresses the "do something" crowd.

Given recent market history as ban legislation becomes more evident, the legislation could also be titled "Assault Weapons Possession Booster of 2019."

BTW, I could live with the background check bill the House passed. Prefer not but could live with it.
