“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."
