H.R. 1478, the Gun Violence Research Act.
Despite gun violence being the leading cause of death for children, a decades-old law effectively stifles any research into this issue.
A bill in Congress right now could change that, allowing the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to restart gun violence research for the first time since 1996, paving the path to new, evidence-based ways to prevent more tragedies in our schools, homes, and communities.
This bipartisan bill will allow the CDC and other federal agencies to restart their research into the causes, effects, and evidence-based prevention options for gun violence in our communities.
