America's gun violence epidemic is likely to increase unless Congress repeals the Dickey Amendment, legislation backed by the gun lobby that has blocked federal funding for research on the origins of — and possible remedies for — this ongoing crisis. So argue TC faculty members Sonali Rajan and John Allegrante, co-authors with two other researchers of "Funding for Gun Violence Research Is Key to the Health and Safety of the Nation," a Perspectives piece in newest issue of the American Journal of Public Health.
