Gun Violence Research Act

This bill amends the Public Health Service Act to specifically include injuries from gun violence as a research subject for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Nothing in the CDC's research authorization may be construed to authorize support for advocacy or promotion of gun control.

The CDC must improve the National Violent Death Reporting System, particularly through the voluntary participation of additional states.

Nothing in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act may be construed to prohibit a health care provider from discussing guns or gun safety with a patient or reporting a patient's threat of violence.
