An estimated 90 Americans are killed by a gun every day. Congress has banned the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) from conducting gun violence research for nearly 20 years, and that has to stop. Tell Congress to lift the ban and fund research. Thousands of doctors and other public health professionals from across the country have already signed on to this petition. Add your name to theirs!
To Members of Congress:
Research is crucial to saving lives. Scientific data has saved lives from motor vehicle accidents, sudden infant death syndrome, lead poisoning, and countless other threats to people's health.
Gun violence is a public health problem that kills 90 Americans a day. It's time to put patients over politics.
Lift the CDC gun research ban and fund the research we need to save lives.
