Gun Violence Research

“In 2017 alone, 39,773 Americans were killed by firearms. In this same year, firearm deaths accounted for 939,964 years of life lost before the age of 65; this is more than diabetes, stroke, and liver disease combined.“In order to effectively prevent gun violence, we need strong research grounded in public health to inform evidence-based policy, laws, and programs. Just as public health research has played an instrumental role in curing diseases and reducing traffic deaths, it can also reduce gun violence."

“In 2017, nearly 109 people died every single day from gun violence. Gun violence is a public health epidemic that requires a public health solution, which is why we must immediately enact and implement evidence-based interventions - like permit-to-purchase policies and extreme risk laws.

“Gun violence has been part of our day-to-day lives for far too long. It is way past time that elected leaders at every level of government work together to make gun violence rare and abnormal.”
