Educational Fund to Stop Gun Violence Executive Director Josh Horwitz issued the following statement:
“For decades, the Educational Fund to Stop Gun Violence has been at the forefront of innovative change and solutions to reduce gun deaths and injuries. As a public health think tank in gun violence prevention, our goal is to continue to collect and translate research and data to reduce gun violence in all its forms — community gun violence, gun suicide, unintentional shootings, high profile mass tragedies, and more. We hope that this website will be utilized to educate the public and identify public health solutions that policymakers and communities can use to make gun violence rare and abnormal.”
