The Daily Toll of Guns in America

Gun Safety and Public Health: Americans own an estimated 310 million firearms. Yet research has repeatedly shown that firearms in a home make residents less safe.

Mental health and gun violence: A single-minded focus on mental health is misguided. Mental illness only accounts for about 4 percent of violence in the U.S.

Children and Guns: One child or teen dies or is injured from guns every 30 minutes.

Gun Violence and Millennials: How gun violence is devastating a generation.

Women, Domestic Violence and Guns: Guns do not make women safer. They exponentially increase the lethality of attacks against women targeted by domestic abusers and stalkers. 

Suicide and Guns: Means matter. Firearms are a risk factor for suicide.

The Gun Safety Debate: The facts on assault weapons, universal background checks, dealer inspections and high-capacity magazines.

Universal Background Checks: They work. Yet federal law doesn’t require them on 40% of gun sales.

Stand Your Ground Laws are Misnamed: They are a license to shoot at will and undermine public safety.
