Contact Congress to Provide Funding for Firearms Injury Prevention Research
The Gun Violence Prevention Research Act (S. 281/H.R. 825) would authorize $50 million in funding each fiscal year for the next five years for the CDC to conduct firearms research. This research aims to provide data to help determine strategies for preventing tragic injuries and death from firearms, which was the number one cause of death in 2019 for all Americans under the age of 44. Please contact Congress and ask your Senator and Representative to co-sponsor S. 281 and H.R. 825.
