Rick Larsen for Congress


End the research ban on gun violence

It's been 22 years since the NRA led the effort to ban federal dollars from funding gun violence research.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention does all kinds of research – because the more we know about public health epidemics, the more we can do to stop them.

Because that's exactly what gun violence in America is: a public health epidemic.

Join our grassroots movement and sign the petition to overturn the Dickey Amendment banning research into gun violence.

If we want to save lives and end this national emergency, it starts with knowing what we're up again. It starts by taking this vital first step!

Join the movement: tell Congress to overturn the research ban on gun violence.
