Gun Safety in America
Every day, 100 Americans are killed with guns. That’s why Everytown for Gun Safety Support Fund seeks to improve our understanding of the causes of gun violence and the means to reduce it.
The Gun Law Navigator is the largest historical database of modern U.S. gun laws, drawing on Everytown for Gun Safety’s survey of state gun laws back to 1991. The Navigator allows you to compare the strength of state gun laws, track trends over time, and identify gaps in the gun laws in your state.
Federal law only requires a background check when the seller is a licensed gun dealer, other sales like unlicensed gun sales negotiated over the internet are unregulated and unchecked.
Everytown for Gun Safety Support Fund seeks to improve our understanding of the causes of gun violence and the means to reduce it – by conducting groundbreaking original research, developing evidence-based policies, and communicating this knowledge to the American public.More About Us
