Doctors and Public Health Professionals: End the CDC Gun Violence Research Ban

Call Congress NOW and tell them to strike any language from the funding bill (also known as the Omnibus) that restricts the CDC and NIH from doing gun violence research.


More than 89 Americans are killed by a gun everyday. Congress has banned the CDC from conducting gun violence research for nearly 20 years, and that has to stop. Tell Congress to lift the ban and fund research. Sign our petition today!

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.
