Write to Congress - Repeal the Dickey Amendment

  • Pizza Luce 800 W 66th St Richfield, MN (map)

The June 28 shooting at the Capital Gazette in Annapolis reminds us that the epidemic of gun violence that plagues this country continues unabated, claiming more than thirty thousand lives a year. Lawmakers have yet to take meaningful action to address the problem. 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 17 to write letters to Congress and demand a full repeal of the Dickey Amendment along with dedicated funding into gun safety research!
