Medical Groups Call For Congress To Fund Gun Violence Research At CDC

Fox News (4/7) reports that over “100 medical groups sent a joint letter to Congress Wednesday urging lawmakers to fund research on gun violence at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.” The letter requests Congress to “end the dramatic and chilling effect of the current rider language restricting gun violence research and to fund this critical work.” The 141 organizations that signed the petition “represent more than 1 million health professionals in the U.S., according to” The Guardian. The groups “demand that the funding for the research should be included in funding for the next fiscal year.” The Trace (4/7) also covers the story.
