Gun Safety Lobbying Event in DC - the day prior to NCE! Thurs, Oct 19

Posted on July 09, 2023

March Fourth, a non-partisan organization aiming to federally ban assault weapons, is planning a lobbying event in D.C. where physicians and health care workers meet with Senators and Representatives to discuss gun safety legislation that can save lives.

This past April, the group had 40 meetings and over 90 pediatricians from 25 states represented. After the success of our April meetings in the House and Senate, #OnCall4Kids is excited to get back to the Hill. This event is not represented by any organization but instead is a group representing themselves as physicians/health care workers. This lobbying event is scheduled the day before the AAP National Conference in D.C.

The group will be lobbying for three bills that if implemented, could save lives:

  • Assault Weapons Ban of 2023, S.25 /HR.698

  • Background Check Expansion Act, S.494/Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2023, HR.715

  • Ethan’s Law, S.173/HR.660

This would be an excellent advocacy opportunity for anyone already coming to NCE!
