Posted on behalf of March For Science Minnesota:
The June 28 shooting at the Capital Gazette reminds us that the epidemic of gun violence that claims more than thirty thousand lives a year continues unabated. The Dickey Amendment, which prevents research into gun violence, is still on the books, despite meaningless “clarifying” language from Congress that came with no funding. The result: we know shockingly little about the sort of policies that could make a real difference.
Join us at Pizza Luce in Richfield at 6pm on July 12 to write Congress and demand a full repeal of the Dickey Amendment along with dedicated funding into gun safety research!
