(( At the height of the sniper slayings, when it seemed every day someone else was cut down...even the White House got caught up in the debate over what to do. What about a national ballistics fingerprint database...so that guns and bullets or cartridges could be matched, spokesman Ari Fleischer was asked? Not a good idea, Fleischer said.

"That would also, of course, involve an act of Congress and a determination of the will of Congress to make that happen."
But with panic mounting...the White House appeared to change its mind.
SOT/Flesicher Oct. 16, 2003


"The president wanted it explored, and typically what happens in the White House is when the president wants something to be looked into, the staff responds."
Only now...six months later and with the snipers in custody....little has happened. The National Rifle Association opposes a gun database, and Attorney General John Ashcroft, who is responsible for overseeing the study, is an NRA supporter. He declined to answer questions about the gun study.
(SOT/Ashcroft)


"No thank you."
And while the Justice Department issued a statement saying it is "committed to commissioning" such a study, it acknowledges that none has actually begun.
At issue is the question...is it possible to give every firearm a distinct fingerprint...either by the marks on slugs caused by the grooves in the barrel...or by the marks made on a cartridge by the firing pin? The state of Maryland thinks so.
SOT/Joseph Kopera, Maryland State Police


"The program works well. It has worked well for the past 12 years."
Gun manufacturers save a cartridge from every new gun they ship to Maryland, and when the gun's sold, the cartridge goes to the state.
"We have the manufacturer, we have the make, the model, serial number, the date it was made and so on."
A computer makes an image of the firing pin mark...and if one like it turns up at a crime scene...it is hoped police can trace the gun.
But would it have helped catch the snipers? Who knows? The program so far only tracks handguns, not rifles. That was to have been another issue for the study. Jim Stewart CBS News Washington))

((NARR: The statistics are nothing short of staggering. Sixty-Five percent of Americans are overweight. Nearly a third are classified as obese - carrying 30 pounds or more than they should. NARR: America's fast food - sugar fueled society is one of THE MOST overweight in the world. And it's because of that - that health advocates like Michael Jacobson want to declare war on poor eating habits.
SOT: (Michael Jacobson) RIGHT NOW THE GOVERNMENT SPENDS ABOUT THREE MILLION DOLLARS A YEAR ON ITS FIVE-A-DAY CAMPAIGN

TO PROMOTE FRUIT AND VEGETABLE CONSUMPTION. THREE MILLION A YEAR! MCDONALDS, ONE COMPANY, SPENDS A BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR ENCOURAGING PEOPLE TO EAT HAMBURGERS, FRIES AND COKES." NARR: Jacobson - and others who gathered at a conference in Washington last week say drastic steps must be taken to roll back the 'super sizing' of Americans - and the health problems that go along with it - diabetes, heart disease and cancer to name a few. They're pushing for what they call the 'Twinkie Tax' - a levy on sugared and fattening foods.....health offerings like free vegetables in company cafeterias - and a public awareness campaign to get people off the couch and into an exercise routine... NARR: The campaign is modeled on the war against tobacco. After thirty years of fighting, anti-smoking forces have seen laws passed prohibiting smoking in offices and restaurants and cigarettes taxed almost to the point of being unaffordable..
(graphic): That in turn has led to a decrease in smoking. The number of men who smoke has been cut in half....the num

ber of women by 25%.
(1955 - 57% of men smoke....2001 25.5% of men smoke; 1955 - 28% of women smoke...2001 21.5% of women smoke.)

Jacobson argues a similar push -- incorporating education, physical activity and penalities against junk food -- would reduce the number of overweight Americans and cut deaths.
SOT: JACOBSON "I THINK IT WOULD BE VERY INTERESTING TO HAVE TELEVISION COMMERCIAL SHOWING JUST HOW MUCH FAT THERE IS

IN A TYPICAL SERVING OF HAAGAN DAZ ICE CREAM. MAYBE COMPARE IT TO FAT FREE FROZEN YOGURT.
NARR: In fact, an ad that ran in West Virginia for 6 weeks did just that. (nat sot) And sales of skim milk soared.

But a campaign against junk food would be much more complicated than against tobacco.....and would face stiff opposition from a multi billion dollar industry.
