How we end our national gun violence epidemic

Only real, commonsense action will end our national gun violence epidemic.

That means passing laws to close loopholes that allowed abusers and stalkers to get firearms – like we just did here in Oregon.

That means companies like Dick's Sporting Goods and Walmart no longer selling weapons of war.

And that means, in Congress, taking on the NRA and finally ENDING THE BAN on federally-funded research into gun violence.

Sign the petition: tell Congress to take immediate action to repeal the Dickey Amendment, which prohibits federally-funded research into gun violence.

It is absurd to ban research into finding out what will work best to eradicate gun violence. Why is the NRA so afraid to find out? Why has Congress been willing for so long to stick its head in the sand? No longer!

This is just the beginning. We won't stop until we have smart policies that keep guns out of the wrong hands. We can and must do more.

When it comes to America's gun laws, our system is broken. Enough is enough!

Let's start nationally with a simple, commonsense action: END THE BAN on federal research funding into gun violence.

Join our grassroots movement. Tell Congress to take action. Sign the petition today.
