Special Collection: Gun Violence

Special Projects

October 03, 2017

The recent mass shooting in Las Vegas has left many of us, again, wondering why this uniquely American problem keeps happening and what can be done about it.

This special collection brings together evidence and insights from nonprofits, foundations, and research organizations working to understand the full impact of firearm use and gun violence in the US. By providing us with analyses of current state and federal laws as well as valuable data on suicides, homicides, accidents, and mass shootings, these organizations seek to inform sound public policy and to curb this ongoing public health epidemic.
